This song took longer than I expected - just because of the solos.
I know there's a couple of little mistakes in there I'm sure - I 
found it hard to pick out in spots - but it shouldn't be too bad...

Cheers,

There must be something
In the way I feel
That she don't want me to feel
The stare she bares cut me
I don't care
You see so what if I bleed

I could never change
Just what I feel
My face will never show
What is not real

A mountain never seems to have
The need to speak
A look that shares so many seek
The sweetest feeling
I got from you
The things I said to you were true

I could never change
Just what I feel
(My face will never show
What is not real

I could have lied I'm such a fool
My eyes could never never never

[chorus]
Keep their cool
Showed her and I told her how
She struck me but I'm fucked up now

But now she's gone yes she's gone away
A soulful song
That would not stay
You see she hides 'cause she is scared
But I don't care
I won't be spared

Could've lied, i'm such a fool....(etc)
