Red Rubber Ball
[C] I should have [Em] known you'd [F] bid me [C] farewell
There's a lesson to be [Em] learned from this
And I [F] learned it very [G7] well
[F] Now I know you're [G] not the only [C] starfish in the [Am] sea
If I [Dm] never hear your [Em] name again
It's [F] all the same to [E7] me.
And I [Am] think it's gonna be alright
[Dm] Yeah the worst is over now
The [G] morning sun is shining
Like a [F] red rubber [C] ball. [Am, G7]
You never cared for secrets I'd confide
To you I'm just an ornament, something for your pride
Always running, never caring
That's the life you live
Stolen minutes of your time were all you had to give.
The story's in the past, with nothing to recall
I've got my life to live, and I don't need you at all
The rollercoaster ride we took is nearly at an end
I bought my ticket with my tears
That's all I'm gonna spend.
