'Cause I couldn't stop the world, 'cause I loved you 
I couldn't stop the world, and I don't want to 
I couldn't stop the world, and I won't 
         E5(VII)      B5
'Cause it ain't  -  enough

(riff 1 two times)

(verse)
You had another bad day 
You let me know that you just can't take it 
I've given up on you 
You live in truth and I know I can't fake it 
'Cause the stars you see are on a dirty sidewalk 
And they ain't polished and new

(bridge)
They don't come true 
And I know, it's what I'd do 
Here I go

(chorus)
'Cause I couldn't stop the world, 'cause I loved you 
I couldn't stop the world, and I don't want to 
I couldn't stop the world, and I won't 
'Cause it ain't enough

I'm not too young for the world 
B4          C#             E
And I can't change for the world 
(simile)
'Cause I don't care for the world 
I don't need to stop the world 
It don't make sense, the world
(fade out)
