[G]I could have tr[D]eated you b[Am]etter
[G]But you couldn't have tr[D]eated me w[Am]orse
[G]But it's [D]he who [Am]laughs last
[G]Is [D]he who cries f[Am]irst
[G]Sometimes I f[D]eel I know str[Am]angers
[G]Better than [D]I know m[Am]y friends
[G]Why must[D] a beg[Am]inning
[G]Be the m[D]eans to an [Am]end
(sometimes he plays Am and the slides the hand to the 3rd fret like this)

[G]          [D]                   [Am]        
When the last word has been spoken
And we've beared w[G]itness to the f[D]inal setting [Am]sun
[G]All that shall rem[D]ain is a to[Am]ken
[G]Of what we've s[D]aid and d[Am]one

[G]When all we've [D]had has been f[Am]orsaken
[G]Distant church bells[D] no longer r[Am]ing
[G]That's the [D]sound of a heart [Am]taken
[G]And the story of t[D]ears from[Am] a king

The st[G]ones from my e[Cadd9]nemies
[G]These wounds will [Cadd9]mend
But[Em] I cannot sur[D]vive
Cadd9 (***) G
the roses from my friends
Em D Cadd9-Bm5*-Asus4
oh i cannot survive the roses


(repeat verse)
This may be the last time I see you
Forgive me for holding you close
This may be the last time that I see you
So of this moment I will make the most
This may be the last time I see you
But if you keep me in your heart
Together we shall be eternal
If you believe
We shall never part

The st[G]ones from my e[Cadd9]nemies
[G]These wounds will [Cadd9]mend
But[Em] I cannot sur[D]vive
Cadd9 (***) G
the roses from my friends
oh [Em]i cannot surv[D]ive

Cadd9 Bm5* Asus4 (x3)
the roses...

Cadd9 Bm5* Bb5* Cadd9 G
i cannot survive the roses from my friends.
