[Intro]

Em      C       Em      C  Em


[Verse 1]

Em
There's a time when the heart can no longer give in
D
You'll try to stand up and fight
C
You've known pain for so long and you know what's gone wrong
D
But you can't make it right
Em
Another broken heart is all your feeling
D
How can you go on
C                                   Am
But the memories of times there was love in your eyes
Dsus7                   D
Keep leading me on


[Chorus]

Am
If it were you
D
Would you hold on and hope that it might
Em             D              G
Bring back the dreams we once knew
Em         D                        Em
Or give up forever that part of your life
C
Tell me what you would do
C          Em
If it were you


[Verse 2]

Em
You can never take back all you've given in love
D
No matter how hard you try
C
It's over and done you just have to let go
D
Though a part of you died
Em
Another waste of time is all that's left now
D
But life must go on
C                                   Am
All the nights that we spent, never thought they would end
Dsus7                   D
Why can't they go on


[Chorus]

Am
If it were you
D
Would you hold on and hope that it might
Em             D              G
Bring back the dreams we once knew
Em         D                         Em
Or give up forever that part of your life
C
Tell me what you would do
C                       Em
If it were you
   Em
If it were you
                           Em
Tell me what would you do
Em
If it were you
C               D
Over and over I go back through time
C               D
Didn't we promise our love till we die
C               D
Asking you deep down inside
                     F
Did we really try


[Solo]

Am      G       F       Am      G       F       E 
(remove capo)   

G                       D
Another broken heart is all that is left
C
But life must go on
Am                            C
All the nights that we spent, never thought
C
They would end
G              D
Why can't they go on


[Chorus]

Am
If it were you
D
Would you hold on and hope that it might
Em             D              G
Bring back the dreams we once knew
Em         D                         Em
Or give up forever that part of your life
        C
Tell me what you would do
       C    D    D     Em    D    G
If it were 


Em         D                         Em
Or give up forever that part of your life
       C
Tell me what you would do
       C    D    D     Em    D    G
If it were you


Em         D                         Em
Or give up forever that part of your life
       C
Tell me what you would do
       C    D    Em
If it were you
