1. There are times when a woman has to say what's on her mind,

               Am                       D7                              G

    even though she knows how much it's gonna hurt.

Am                       D                            G           Em

    Before I say another word, let me tell you I love you,

                Am                   C                                   Am             D   - D7

    let me hold you close and say these words as gently as I can.

 

    Am                                      D                  G

2.      There's been another man that I've needed and I've loved,

Am                           D7                    G

    but that doesn't mean I love you less,

                  Am                         D                          G                    Em

    and he knows he can't possess me, and he knows he never will,

                             Am                   C                     Am              D    - D7

    there's just this empty place inside of me that only he can fill.

 

 Am                        D7        - Bm                       E

Torn between two lovers,           feeling like a fool,

Am          D7                    G                    E

    loving both of you is breaking all the rules.

 Am                        D7       - Bm                       E

Torn between two lovers,          feeling like a fool,

Am                          D7                   G

loving you both is breaking all the rules.

 

    Am                                         D

3.      You mustn't think you've failed me

                 G

    just because there's someone else,

                           Am       D7               G

    you were the first real love I ever had.

Am                              D                    G                       Em

    And all the things I ever said, I swear they still are true,

         Am                      C                      Am                 D     - D7

    for no one else can have the part of me I gave to you.

    but with everything I feel inside I'm asking you to stay !
