[Verse 1]
        G             C
She was doing 60 in a 35
          C                 G
I hit the lights and pulled her over
        G                         C
When I reached the window of the driver side
          C                      G
There was blood from her mouth, dry on her shoulder
           G                      C
I've never had much patience for guys that hit
      C             G
For more than just obvious reasons
    G                        C
I asked if she wanted me to take him in
     C                   G
She laughed it off like lemonade

[Chorus]
      C                                  G 
When you're in love, you can be blinded by your own heart
        Em                                           Am
You'll bend your own truth, so twisted up you could justify sin
          C                  D                     Am 
And when people in love are desperate enough to abandon their dreams
           C    D    G
People do desperate things

[Interlude]

[Verse 2]
           G                      C
I've been taking lunch breaks at her work
          C                    G
When the restaurant ain't too crowded
          G                    C
She knows me and my wife got a little girl
         C                 G
We don't talk too much about it
          G                C
The other night she met me way out west
             C                        G
Things went further than they should have
             G                    C
But when she undid the buttons of her dress
           C              G
I didn't stop her, but I could have

[Chorus]
      C                                  G 
When you're in love, you can be blinded by your own heart
        Em                                           Am
You'll bend your own truth, so twisted up you could justify sin
          C                  D                     Am 
And when people in love are desperate enough to abandon their dreams
           C    D    G
People do desperate things

[Verse 3]
   G                           C
I know where he drinks most every night
      C               G
It's our local hero sports bar
     G                    C
I've got him cuffed and sweating cold
        C            G
In the back of my patrol car
      G                     C
You forget how dark the canyon gets
        C            G
It's a real uneasy feeling
           G                      C
I've never had much patience for guys who hit
     C             G
For more than just obvious reasons

[Chorus]
      C                                  G 
When you're in love, you can be blinded by your own heart
        Em                                           Am
You'll bend your own truth, so twisted up you could justify sin
          C                  D                     Am 
And when people in love are desperate enough to abandon their dreams
           C    D    G
People do desperate things
