[Intro]
D G A G A
 
[Verse]
D                          D/F#
Night before she's leaving,
G                  D
there's suddenly a change
    Bm          F#m
She slowly sits beside me and
    Em7             A
she softly calls my name
D                          D/F#
And gives me an address
        G                 Em
and she says, "Come visit soon"
G                 F#m
And yesterday she wouldn't notice
Em7                A
that I was in the room
 
[Verse]
D                         D/F#
I guess she stayed awake 'cause it's so
G               D
hard for her to say
G                     F#m
We both had built our hopes up,
Em7                               A
 but the love just slipped away
D                     D/F#
She's worried I might try to burden
G                D
her with all the blame
                G  D
For breaking up my heart as if she'd
G                   A
planned it from the start
     G                 D               Em7  A7
Just 'cause that's the way some people do
 
[Chorus]
A       G      Em7                     A
Oh, but I have been on her side of it too
            D     D/F# F#m7
So I said, "Don't feel ashamed,
           Em7            A
don't feel guilty for the pain
G                   F#m7
Sometimes you build your hopes
            Em7            A
up and they fall back down again"
    D       D/F#     Bm
The time we had was magic
        Em              G
and the love was not in vain
    G                 A              D
And falling down's as common as the rain
 
[Bridge]
D                      D/F#       G
And something about me leaves you cold
                   Em
But something even you don't know
Bm                       F#m
And don't think that it's wrong to go,
           Em7          A
'cause of what we had before
D                        D/F#
Just leave me with those magic times,
G
I'd rather keep you on my mind
     Bm             F#m7
Then see you try to fake the feelings,
Em7              A
trying not to be unkind
 
[Chorus]
       D          F#m7
Oh now don't feel ashamed,
           Em7
don't feel guilty for the pain
G                   F#m7
Sometimes you build your hopes
            Em7            A
up and they fall back down again"
    D       D/F#     Bm
The time we had was magic
        Em              G
and the love was not in vain
    G                 A              D
And falling down's as common as the rain
 
[Outro]
G
The only thing for certain is
    Em      F#m        G
that nothing stays the same
G                     Em            D
And falling down's as common as the rain
D      Em    A   D G D
as the rain
