If I were sorry    (video)

 

    D - Bm - A - G

 

    D                                                          Bm

1.     I'd crawl through the desert on my hands and knees,

                               A                                                  G

    rehearsing my pretty, please, climb the highest mountain.

                    D

    If I were sorry, shout it from the top,

      Bm                                                   A                              G

    swim under water until my lungs exploded, walk into the fire.

 

                    D                                   Em

    If I were sorry I'd run a thousand miles,

                                       D

    wouldn't stop until I dropped,

                                              G                 Bm   A         D

    wouldn't take a break to breathe until I got close enough.

                                  Em                                D

    Then I'd do it all again if I really had the chance,

                                  G                      Bm      A      - G

    but I know deep inside, for you it's just another        dance.

 

                D    - Bm                                 A                    G

If I were sorry,        I'd give you all the glory, if I were sorry.

                D     - Bm                                       A                   G

If I were sorry,         it would be a different story, if I were sorry,

               D

if I were sorry, oh.

 

    D                                                                Bm

2.     I'd hold my breath until my face turned blue,

                                                           A                                G

    I'd rob a bank and the post office, too, swim across the ocean.

                    D                              Bm

    If I were sorry, I'd take wow of silence,

                                           A                              G

    I wouldn't say a single word until you really heard.

 

                    D                                   Em

    If I were sorry I'd run a thousand miles,

                                       D

    wouldn't stop until I dropped,

                                              G                 - Bm         A    - G

    wouldn't take a break to breathe until I         got close         enough.

 

                D    - Bm                                  A                   G

If I were sorry,        I'd give you all the glory, if I were sorry.

                D     - Bm                                       A                   G

If I were sorry,         it would be a different story, if I were sorry,

 

     D                                   Em                                          D

+       Now did you ever realise that your mistake had a price ?

                                       G                               Bm   A        D

    Oh, you threw it all away ‘cause you're the devil in disguise.

                                          Em                                             D

    Now would you ever realise the consequences of your lies,

                                                      G                 Bm            A            G

    and would you save the falling tear or act as if there's nothing there ?

 

                   D     - Bm                   A       - G

+  If I were sorry          ( if I were sorry ).

                    D     - Bm                  A         - G

    If I were sorry          ( if I were sorry ).

                   D                                 Bm

    If I were sorry, I'd take a vow of silence,

                                           A                   G

    I wouldn't say a single word, if I were sorry.

                    D                                               Bm

    If I were sorry, I'd be on my hands and knees,

                                A

    begging pretty, please.

                    G                        D

    If I were sorry, but I'm not sorry, no !
