    C - Am - Dm - Em - F

 

     C               - Am                                           - Dm - Em - F

1.      You say         I only hear what I want to.

C                       - Am                                 - Dm Em   - F

    And you say          I talk so all the time,          so.

 

Dm                                C 

    And I thought what I felt was simple,

Dm                               C

    and I thought that I don't belong.

Dm                    C

    And now that I am leavin’.

Dm                           C

    now I know that I did something wrong,

                   F                - Fm                          F                - C - F - C

    'cause I missed you,          yeah, yeah, I missed you !

 

   C                         - Am

2.     And you say            I only hear what I want to,

       Dm                        Em

    I don't listen hard, I don't pay attention,

                F                                                  C

    to the distance that you're running or to anyone, anywhere.

      - Dm                     Em

    I          don't understand if you really care,

           F                                  C            Dm    - C

    I'm only hearing negative, no no no, bad.

 

            - Dm                           C                               Dm

    So I          turned the radio on, I turned the radio up,

                                      C

    and this woman was singing my song.

           Dm                               C

    The lover's in love and the other's run away,

          Dm                                    C

    the lover is crying ‘cause the other won't stay.

 

Dm                                                     C                                        Dm

    And some of us hover when we weep for the other who was dying

                                             C

    since the day they were born, well.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dm                                   C                                     Dm              - C

    Well, this is not that I think that I'm throwing but I'm thrown.

                Dm

    And I thought I'd live forever, but now I'm not so sure.

                     F

    You try to tell me that I'm clever but that won't take me anyhow,

Dm                    - C         Dm     - C

    or anywhere        with you.

 

   Dm                                C

3.     And you said that I was naïve

             - Dm                            C

    and I,          I thought that I was strong.

Dm                                  C 

    I thought, "Hey, I can leave, I can leave !

           - Dm                           C                                   F                - Fm

    But           now I know that I was wrong, ‘cause I missed you,

              F                     - C - F - C

    yeah, I missed you.

 

                             Dm

    You said, you caught me ‘cause you want me, and one day I'll let you.

                      F

    You try to give away a keeper or keep me, ‘cause you're know,

                       Dm                Em         - F

    you're  just too scared to loose.

                   C      - Am             -  Dm - Em - F

    And you say :            Stay !                 

C                 - Am                                            Dm - Em - F

    You say,          I only hear what I want to.
