[Intro]
C Em A x2


[Verse 1]
Em                                       G
It's easier to forgive someone for being wrong
               Bm            A
Than for being right, isn't it?
Em                                               G
And how your angry tears will fall when all your plans
                                 D
Don't suit the one you made them for
         A
It comes to this


[Pre-chorus]
     Em        F#m             F            G
It's easier forgetting how you got to shore
     Em               F#m
When every cloud that blows your way
   F             G   Bm
Is something else to blame me for


[Chorus]
C
Say it like you feel it
          Em                         A    A
You can't say it like you feel it anymore
C
Say it like I mean it
        Em                       A    A
I can't say it like I mean it anymore


[Verse 2]
Em                                     G
Hold it up to the light, it looks like love
                     Bm                A
It's what the mirror says, you name it so
        Em
But you cut your pretty shapes as paper flakes
             G
From careful sheets
             D           A
They blow away, not made to keep


[Pre-chorus]
     Em      F#m           F          G
What if alteration makes a little lie?
     Em               F#m             F         G
When what you paint instead is easier on the eye
     Bm
Than what you hide


[Chorus]
C
Say it like you feel it
          Em                         A    A
You don't say it like you feel it anymore
C
Say it like I mean it
        Em                       A    A
I can't say it like I mean it anymore
A
Not anymore


[Solo]
C Em D
C Em D A


[Outro to fade]
          C                                 Em
There are people who you think you're gonna love forever
             D                       A
Oh, when you should know better, you should know better
     C                        Em
Some people only see you as a move they're making
        D                      A
Another step they're taking, a bet they're staking
          C                                 Em
There are people who you think you're gonna love forever
             D                  A
You're gonna stay together, you should know better
     C                                 Em
Some people don't forgive you what you give up freely
            D                           A
Or that you found it easy, they want to own completely
          C                                 Em
There are people who you think you're gonna love forever
             D                       A
Oh, when you should know better, you should know better
     C                        Em
Some people only see you as a move they're making
        D                      A
Another step they're taking, a bet they're staking
          C                                 Em
There are people who you think you're gonna love forever
             D                  A
You're gonna stay together, you should know better
