Verse I:
[A]What’s this walking through my door
[G#/E]I know I’ve seen the look before
[A]Sometimes on faces on the street
[G#/E]And sometimes at the mirror looking back at me

[E]And hold you while you weep
[D]We ‘ve been talking and you know what, I’m sick of this talk
[B]And it’s nothing that won’t keep

You cant’t rush a weary soul
You can’t sweep it under the rug now honey
But it take not a lot to know
