††††††††††††† ††A††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D†††††††††††††††††††††††††† A

1. When I first saw you, my eyeballs began to bend.

††††††††††††††† A†††††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††E

When I first talked to you, you sounded like a long-found friend.

†††††††† A††††††††††††††††††††††††††† †††††D†††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††A††† F#

And now we can be happy together our whole lives long.

††††††††††††††† D ††††††††††††††††††††††E††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††A††††††††††

Yeah, I know we could.Thereís only one thing wrong:

†††††††† †††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††D†††††††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††††††††A

Chorus: Youíre gonna reject me.Youíre gonna reject me.

A††††††††††††††††††††††††††† †††††F#†††††††††††††††††† D††† E

Just like all of them other chances I took.

†††††††††††††††††††††††††† D†††††††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††††††††A††††† F#

Youíre gonna reject me.Youíre gonna reject me.

†††† †††††D††††††††††††††††† F#††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††D†††††††††† E††††††††† A††††††††††

I can see it in your eyes - well, I could if I wasnít afraid to look.

††††††††††††† ††A†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D†††††††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††††††A

2. Itís so long Iíve been waiting for someone to save the last dance,

††††††††††††††† A†††††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††††††††††††††††††††††††E

and itís not so often that I get this good of a chance,

††††††††††††† A†††††††††††††††† D†††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††A††† F#

but itís not so often lately that my chances work out,

††††††††††††††† D†††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††††††E††††††††††††††††††††††††††††A††††††††††

and itís hard to speak up when youíre feeling so much self-doubt.

 

Chorus

††††††††††††††† F††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† A

Bridge: Wait! Hold it! On second thought, our friendshipís too good to risk!

†††††††† F††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† E†††††† †††††††††††††††††††††††††††E7

Whenever you put your heart on the line, it always comes out in a mess.

†††††††† A†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D††††††††††††††††††††††† A

3. I know that itís better to lose than to never to play.

††††††††††††††† †††††††A†††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††E

But when it actually happens, it never really feels that way.

††††††††††††† A††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††D†††††††††††††††††††††††††† A††† F#

Youíre damned if you do, but if you donít itís really the pits.

††††† D†††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††††E†††††††††††††††††††††A††††††††††

So donít look too shocked, and try not to laugh if

 

Chorus
