I lose my way
Em D G
And it’s not too long before you point it out

I cannot cry
Em D G
Because you know that’s weakness in your eyes

A smile, a laugh everyday of my life

My heart can’t possibly break

When it wasn’t even whole to start with

I was so young

You should have known better than to lean on me

You never thought of anyone else

You just saw your pain
Bm Em
And now I cry in the middle of the night
D
For the same damn thing
