Intro:
G C G D (x4)

G C       G D 
   You are   my sword
G C          G       D 
   Your love is it's own reward
G C         G D  
   My heart,   I have found,
G C            G      D 
   Gets carved surely by the pound

G C G D (x2)(strummed)

G C          G D 
   God knows    I tried,
G C              G        D 
   Tried to hold you with all my might
G C        G D 
   But time   has won,
G C                  G       D 
   And I could never be that strong
 G     C      G        D 
(Don't cry) I couldn't be that strong,
 G     C         G       D 
(Don't cry) That used to be my favourite song
 G     C    G        D 
(Don't cry) Tears so bittersweet
A                        G
Fill my eyes whenever we meet,
       A          G
It's always bittersweet

G C          G D 
   I cut and    I bleed
G C                         G       D 
   You seem to find that so hard to believe
G C                 G        D 
   Well that's just too, too bad
G C                          G            D 
   You could never touch the love that we had
 G     C            G       D 
(Don't cry) For the love we had,
 G     C                        G       D 
(Don't cry) Sometimes we try to take it back
 G     C          G        D 
(Don't cry) Tears so bittersweet
     A                          G
That kiss my cheeks whenever we meet
       A          G
It's always bittersweet
 G     C          G         D 
(Don't cry) For a love-gone-wrong
 G     C                       G        D 
(Don't cry) That used to be my favorite song
 G     C          G        D 
(Don't cry) Tears so bittersweet
A                        G
Fill my eyes whenever we meet,
A   G
Anyway...

A D                A     E
   We've grown and times change
A D                    A        E
   When we meet now it feels so strange
A D                A      E
   Well I hold you like a sword
A D                     A                   E
   And you won't cut me cut me like you did before

A    D      A     E
It's always bittersweet
A    D      A     E
It's always bittersweet
A    D      A     E
It's always bittersweet
A     D      A     E
Bittersweet, bittersweet


(A D A E until fade)


That's it! Hope you enjoy playing it!
