lyrics

YOU TAKE IT AWAY FROM ME

verse: C Csus4 C Csus2 C
chorus: Am Am/G F G7 C
bridge: (E Am) x3 (Am C) x2 Am F G# G C

check, make sure i'm alright
breaking hearts to the left & the right
take your time you can take all night
to forget about me.

lie, it's all the rage
if you stay still nothing will change
i'm your man but the feeling is strange
all you do is doubt me.

[chorus]
(you don't even want it
& you take it away from me) x2

talk, nothing's coming out
deciding this love is within or without
& me, i'm just hiding out
so call when you're free.

[ch]

[bridge]
..away from me now
every word is not a vow
& the problem is in
how you're understood
the tone is wrong if it's something good
i need you something fierce
it appears that maybe i could.

check, make sure i'm alright
breaking hearts to the left & the right
take your time, you can take all night
to forget about me.

[ch] x2
