[Verse 1]
 Em                            D   
"Don't go borrowin' trouble," that's what you used to say
A/C#                                   C
But we don't keep in touch the way we used to nowadays
      Em                            D  
Your eyes are not as bright as I remember them to be
    A/C#                                 C                 Bm
The light inside's grown dim and that's hard for me to see....

[Verse 2]
      Em                                D
The creases on your forehead run like treads on a tire
    A/C#                                       C  
The white stripe runnin' through your bangs a long twisted spire
         Em                                       D            
You're sweepin' up the floods and you've been vacuumin' the fires
       A/C#                             C           Bm
And you lay down every night next to a goddamn liar......

[Chorus]
    Em                         D 
You may be here today, but tomorrow, you're a ghost
           A/C#                              C  
I guess the most someone can hope for is to find a place to lay
   Em                                     D      
Someone to tell your secrets to when the nights get long and blue
        A/C#                               C 
Someone strong enough to lean on when the roses fall away
   C                                   Bm  
Strong enough to love you when you're wrong
           C                             Bm
Someone strong enough to love you when you're
 Em    D   A/C#  C
Wrong..................

[Verse 3]
         Em                               D
When the day is winding down, my heart abandons me for you
    A/C#                            C  
You forgot yourself so long ago and I wish I could too
         Em                      D        
But you live inside a quiet hell no one can pray away
A/C#                         C                   Bm
Leavin' would be easy, I understand why you stay.....

[Chorus]
    Em                         D 
You may be here today, but tomorrow, you're a ghost
           A/C#                              C  
I guess the most someone can hope for is to find a place to lay
   Em                                     D      
Someone to tell your secrets to when the nights get long and blue
        A/C#                               C 
Someone strong enough to lean on when the roses fall away
   C                                   Bm  
Strong enough to love you when you're wrong
           C                             Bm
Someone strong enough to love you when you're
 Em    D   A/C#  C
Wrong..... mm..........

[Verse 4]
          Em                                 D
You'd be wrong if you were thinkin' that we all don't fade away
    A/C#                          C
Like dew drops in the dawn, like sun beams through the haze
        Em                               D 
It's a long way to be sinkin', holdin' tightly to the weights
       A/C#                               C                    Bm   
Of the one who pulls you down while you slowly waste your days....

[Chorus]
           C                                   Bm
Someone strong enough to love you when you're wrong
           C                             Bm  
Someone strong enough to love you when you're
  Em   D
Wrong....
            A/C#   C  
When you're wrong....

[Outro]
Em   D 
Ooh ooh
             A/C#   C
When you're wrong.....
Em    D    A/C#    C
Ooh, ooh  ooohh   oohh
Em    D    A/C#    C     Em
Ooh, ooh  ooohh   oohh.......
