[Intro]

Em  Am  C  D


[Verse 1]

         Em                    Am
I’m not strong enough to stay away.
                 C             D
I can't run from you.  I just run back to you.
        Em                     Am
Like a moth im drawn into your flame,
            C                     D
You say my name, but it's not the same.
         C                       D            
You look in my eyes I’m stripped of my pride.
         C                       B
And my soul surrenders and you bring my heart to its knees


[Chorus]

                 Em                             Am
And it's killin’ me when you're away.  I wanna leave and I wanna stay.
          C                                     D
I’m so confused,So hard to choose.  Between the pleasure and the pain
                Em  
And I know it's wrong, and I know it's right.
           Am                                     C
Even if I try to win the fight, my heart would overrule my mind
              B
And I’m not strong enough to stay away


[Instrumental]

Em Am C D


[Verse 2]
(same as verse 1)

Played the same as the 1st chorus. If you want to keep the rhythem of the 
song then play some pauses when you strum

I'm not strong enough to stay away. What can I do?
I would die without you. In your presence my heart knows no shame
Im not to blame, cause you bring my heart to its knees


[Chorus]

                 Em                             Am
And it's killin’ me when you're away.  I wanna leave and I wanna stay.
          C                                     D
I’m so confused,So hard to choose.  Between the pleasure and the pain
                Em  
And I know it's wrong, and I know it's right.
           Am                                     C
Even if I try to win the fight, my heart would overrule my mind
              B
And I’m not strong enough to stay away


[Verse 3]

                 Em                             Am
And it's killin’ me when you're away.  I wanna leave and I wanna stay.
          C                                     D
I’m so confused,So hard to choose.  Between the pleasure and the pain
                Em  
And I know it's wrong, and I know it's right.
           Am                                     C
Even if I try to win the fight, my heart would overrule my mind
              B
And I’m not strong enough to stay away


[Bridge]

A                          G

A                          G
There's nothing I can do.  My heart is chained to you
D                      B
And I can't get free. Look what this love did to me


[Chorus]

                 Em                             Am
And it's killin’ me when you're away.  I wanna leave and I wanna stay.
          C                                     D
I’m so confused,So hard to choose.  Between the pleasure and the pain
                Em  
And I know it's wrong, and I know it's right.
           Am                                     C
Even if I try to win the fight, my heart would overrule my mind
              B
And I’m not strong enough to stay away
