Verse:
 A
Well, you called me up this morning
 F#m
Told me 'bout the new love you found
 D
Said, "I'm happy for you.
 E
I'm really happy for you."

Found someone else,
I guess I won't be coming 'round
I guess it's over, baby
It's really over, baby, woooh

Pre-chorus:

 F#m
   And from what you're saying
 A
I know you've gotten over me
 C#7F#mAE
   It'll never be the way it used to be
 BmE
   So if it's gotta be this way
 Bm
   Don't worry, baby,
 E
I can take the news okay

Chorus:

 A
But if you see me walking by,
 D
And the tears are in my eyes,
 ADE
Look away, baby, look away.
 A
If we meet on the street some day,
 D
And I don't know what to say,
 ADE
Look away, baby, look away.
 F#m
Don't look at me
 DEA
don't want you to see me this way.

(Intro)

Verse:

When we both agreed as lovers
We were better off as friends
That's how it had to be
Yeah, that's how it had to be

I tell you I'm fine,
But sometimes I just pretend
Wish you were holding me,
Wish you were still holding me, oooh

Prechorus:

I just never thought
That I would be replaced so soon
I wasn't prepared
To hear those words from you
I know I wanted to be free
Yeah, baby this is how we wanted it to be

Chorus:

 A
But if you see me walking by,
 D
And the tears are in my eyes,
 ADE
Look away, baby, look away.
 A
And if we meet on the street some day,
 D
And I don't know what to say,
 ADE
Look away, baby, look away.
 F#m
Don't look at me
 DEA
don't want you to see me this way.

(Solo in B: F#m E F#m B E F#)

Chorus:

 B
If you see me walking by,
 E
And the tears are in my eyes,
 BEF#
Look away, baby, look away.
 B
And if we meet on the street some day,
 E
And I don't know what to say,
 BEF#
Look away, baby, look away.
 G#m
Don't look at me
 EF#B
don't want you to see me (this way.)
 B
If you see me walking by,
And the tears are in my eyes,
Look away, baby, look away.
Don't look at me
I don't want you to see me (this way.)
