F#m  E
F#m       A           G#m           E
And there could be at any moment a change
F#m       A              E
And if perhaps to put us down
F#m     A             G#m            E
I won't act like I've seen something strange
F#m     A                 E
Maybe I just won't make a sound
A            G           E
But when the door closes before my eyes
A   G         E
Oh, oh I will cry
E                    F#m
Just to know you are going to stay
A   B      E
Out on the side
F#m        A          G#m      E
No I'm not looking to find any holes
F#m         A              E
From what I think has been denied
F#m            A          G#m          E
That's not the feeling of love when it flows
F#m      A                  E
I hope I can lose that much pride
A         G               E
And if it should come the time when we lose
A    G            E
No I won't try to hide
E                       F#m
I'll just watch a good love as it goes
A   B      E
Out on the side
F#m    A              G#m             E
I have fallen through black nights it seems
F#m      A                E
With the times that I've lied
F#m      A                     G#m        E
And I've watched your thoughts stray into dreams
F#m         A      E
When you're not satisfied
A            G           E
But when the door closes before my eyes
A      G      E
Oh, oh I will cry
E                     F#m
Just to know you are going to stay
A   B      E
Out on the side
A   G       E    F#m  A  G#m  E  F#m  A   E
Out on the side
