Inside    (video)

 

    C - Am    - C - Am

 

    C                             G       C              Am                    Em

1.     She tries for the honesty, but the truth gets in the way,

                     G       F                    Am                   E      Am

    cause I know inside what she can't bring herself to say.

C                                             G                C

    There's something dying deep in her heart,

      Am                                 Em

    I feel it when I touch her hand.

            G            F              Am          E       Am    - G

    So I tell her a lie when I tell her I understand.

 

          C                G              C

But inside I die a little each day,

   Am                   G            Am

inside I feel her slipping away.

     F                      B7

Inside if she knew I hurt this way,

    Em                      A7

inside she'd find a reason to stay,

            F                                      Fm                        C

and so I must keep this broken heart down deep inside.

 

+  C - Am

 

    C                       G         C    Am                         Em

2.     She turns to look at me, trying to speak her mind,

           G            F              Am             E         Am

    a thousand reasons in search of a single rhyme.

C                                 G        C            Am                        Em

    And suddenly it occurs to me she's trying to say goodbye,

            G                 F          Am              E        Am     G

    so I give her a smile and tell her that I'll be alright, oh.

 

+  CHORUS

 

  Dm                                  C                  Fm       Bb         D#

+     Sometimes love will slip away, it's hard to say just why.

             G                                 C

    Is it something that's said or is it instead

      F                                       G7

    something that just simply died ?

 

 

 

 

 

 

(orig. moves up half a note to capo 3rd here)

 

        C        - G - C       Am     - G - Am

+  Inside !                 Inside !

         F                     B7

    Inside if she knew I hurt this way,

       Em                       A7

    inside she'd find a reason to stay,

               F                                       Fm                        C

    and so I must keep this broken heart down deep inside.

 

+  C - Am    - C - Am     - C - Am ....
