D Bm 2x
Verse 1
S[D]ome love is just a l[Bm]ie of the heart
[D]The cold remains of what b[Bm]egan with a passionate s[F#m]tart
And they may not want it to e[A7]nd
But it will, it's just a question of wh[D]en
Verse 2
[D]I've lived long enough t[Bm]o have learned
[D]The closer you get to the f[Bm]ire the more you get bu[F#m]rned
But that won't happen to [A7]us
Because it's always been a matter of t[D]rust
 ---Instrumental Break--- same as intro 

Verse 3
[D]I know you're an e[Bm]motional girl
[D]It took a lot for you to [Bm]not lose your faith in this wo[F#m]rld
I can't offer you p[A7]roof
But you're gonna face a moment of t[D]ruth
Verse 4
[D]It's hard when you're al[Bm]ways afraid
[D]You just recover when a[Bm]nother belief is betr[F#m]ayed
So break my heart if you [A7]must
It's a matter of trust
Bridge 1
Y[Em]ou can't go the distance
With [F#m]too much resistance
I k[Em]now you have dou[A]bts
But for Go[F#m]d's sake don't shut me ou[G]t [G] [G] [G-A] [A]
Verse 5
[D]This time you've got no[Bm]thing to lose
[D]You can take it, you can l[Bm]eave it whatever you c[F#m]hoose
I won't hold back any[A7]thing
And I'll walk away a fool or a k[D]ing
Verse 6
[D]Some love is just a l[Bm]ie of the mind
[D]It's make believe until it's o[Bm]nly a matter of t[F#m]ime
And some might have learned to a[A7]djust
But then it never was a matter of tr[D]ust
 ----Instrumental break---- variation of intro lead, but 4x instead of 2x 

Rhythm: D Bm 4x
Bridge 2
I'[Em]m sure you're aware love
We've b[F#m]oth had our share of [Em]believing too lo[A]ng
When the w[F#m]hole situation was wrong[G] [G] [G] [G-A] [A]
Verse 7
[D]Some love is just a l[Bm]ie of the soul
[D]A constant battle for the ul[Bm]timate state of c[F#m]ontrol
After you've heard lie upon [A7]lie
There can hardly be a question of w[D]hy
Verse 8
[D]Some love is just a [Bm]lie of the heart
[D]The cold remains of what b[Bm]egan with a passionate st[F#m]art
But that can't happen to [A7]us
'Cause it's always been a matter of tr[D]ust
Play Intro (slightly varies) over and over (Fades out after 6x)
It's a matter of trust
It's always been a matter of trust
It's a matter of trust
