VERSE:
 D                   Bm
Some love is just a lie of the heart
D                         Bm                      A
The cold remains of what began with a passionate start
And they may not want it to end
                          A7           D
But it will, it's just a question of when

VERSE:
D                 Bm
I've lived long enough to have learned
D                         Bm                     A
The closer you get to the fire the more you get burned
But that won't happen to us
                     A7               D
Because it's always been a matter of trust 
INSTRUMENTAL:  - PLAY INTRO - 
VERSE:
D                 Bm
I know you're an emotional girl
D                             Bm                      A
It took a lot for you to not lose your faith in this world
I can't offer you proof
            A7                      D
But you're gonna face a moment of truth
VERSE:
D                      Bm
It's hard when you're always afraid
D                      Bm                 A
You just recover when another belief is betrayed
So break my heart if you must
        A7                    
It's a matter of trust 
BREAK:
     Em          
You can't go the distance
     F#m  
With too much resistance
   G              A
I know you have doubts                   sl.
         Bm                       G    G / A   D
But for God's sake don't shut me out 

VERSE:
D                      Bm
This time you've got nothing to lose
D                         Bm                     A
You can take it, you can leave it whatever you choose
I won't hold back anything
          A7                    D
And I'll walk away a fool or a king

VERSE:
D                   Bm
Some love is just a lie of the mind
D                             Bm               A
It's make believe until it's only a matter of time
And some might have learned to adjust
             A7                    D
But then it never was a matter of trust 

INSTRUMENTAL: PLAY IMPROVISED INTRO 3x's THEN A BARRE CHORD A or POWER CHORD A
BREAK:
     Em
I'm sure you're aware love
       F#m                     G           A
We've both had our share of believing too long    sl.
          Bm                   G                G / A   D
When the whole situation was wrong 

VERSE:
D                   Bm
Some love is just a lie of the soul
D                         Bm                  A
A constant battle for the ultimate state of control
After you've heard lie upon lie
           A7                      D
There can hardly be a question of why

VERSE:
D                   Bm
Some love is just a lie of the heart
D                         Bm                      A
The cold remains of what began with a passionate start
But that can't happen to us
              A7                      D
'Cause it's always been a matter of trust 
OUTRO:
PLAY INTRO OVER AND OVER (about 5 times)AND SING THESE WORDS ....
It's a matter of trust
It's always been a matter of trust 
It's a matter of tru
