"you're back, sitting on my doorstep,
ah yeah like nothing happened
Telling me you're free and oh, 
can you see me again? 
Yeah right, you've been kicked out, 
do you think I'm that stupid? 
You say you're free but didn't he just oh oh oh... 
get tired of you kid."

[A]                  [Ab] 
I could not eat for days, 
I cried so much my face,
has never been the same...
And now you're back here with your lies.
I hope you realise... 

You think I'm gonna take you back!
You'd better do better than that.
I'll tell ya how its gonna be,
don't you never ever come near me. 
Let me tell you how I've been: 
I've been hiding from my friends,
hiding from the world,
hiding from myself.
You think you'll come round here, 
start singing in my ear,
girl you damaged me, 
I don't forgive so easily.
You better do better than that!

----Back to into bit------

Repeat this for the verses and chorus but then there is a change for this part 
where again you need to listen to the rhythm carefully, its two downstrokes of 
C#m, A and Ab followed by a couple more downstrokes of Ab :

[C#m]                        [A]            
I gave you everything I had girl,
but you had to try and take some more. 
[C#m]                    [A] 
You went behind my back girl,
cheated on me, I was the last to know. 
[C#m]                    [A]
Did everything we have girl,
meant nothing to ya, well I was such a fool...
[C#m]                       [A] 
Now you come crawling back girl, 
oh let me tell ya I am through with you.

[A]                     [Ab]
Oh I'm back up off the floor, 
[A]                      [Ab]
and I won't get hurt no more, 
[A]                          [Ab]
I've been waiting for this day when, 
[A]                            [Ab]
you'll be back here with your lies, 
[A]             [Ab] 
I hope you realise... 


---the end of the song is the same progression as the chorus---
[C#m], [A], [E], [Ab]         

Say something, say something... 
Say something, say something... 

You'd better do better than that!

---end of song is the same as the introduction to fade out----

Hope that wasn't too confusing, maybe I can upload a video sometime..
