Verse:
Well, you c[A]alled me up this morning
Told me 'bout the [F#m]new love you found
Said, "I'm [D]happy for you.
I'm really [E]happy for you."
Found someone else,
I guess I won't be coming 'round
I guess it's over, baby
It's really over, baby, woooh
Pre-chorus:
[F#m] And from what you're saying
I know you've [A]gotten over me
[C#7] It'll never be the [F#m]way it [A]used to [E]be
[Bm] So if it's gotta be this [E]way
[Bm] Don't worry, baby,
I can [E]take the news okay
Chorus:
But if you [A]see me walking by,
And the [D]tears are in my eyes,
Look a[A]way, [D]baby, look a[E]way.
If we meet [A]on the street some day,
And I [D]don't know what to say,
Look a[A]way, [D]baby, look a[E]way.
Don't [F#m]look at me
I [D]don't want you to [E]see me this [A]way.
(Intro)
Verse:
When we both agreed as lovers
We were better off as friends
That's how it had to be
Yeah, that's how it had to be
I tell you I'm fine,
But sometimes I just pretend
Wish you were holding me,
Wish you were still holding me, oooh
Prechorus:
I just never thought
That I would be replaced so soon
I wasn't prepared
To hear those words from you
I know I wanted to be free
Yeah, baby this is how we wanted it to be
Chorus:
But if you [A]see me walking by,
And the [D]tears are in my eyes,
Look a[A]way, [D]baby, look a[E]way.
And if we meet [A]on the street some day,
And I [D]don't know what to say,
Look a[A]way, [D]baby, look a[E]way.
Don't [F#m]look at me
I [D]don't want you to s[E]ee me th[A]is way.
(Solo in B: F#m E F#m B E F#)
Chorus:
If you [B]see me walking by,
And the [E]tears are in my eyes,
Look a[B]way, [E]baby, look a[F#]way.
And if we meet [B]on the street some day,
And I [E]don't know what to say,
Look a[B]way, [E]baby, look a[F#]way.
Don't [G#m]look at me
I [E]don't want you to s[F#]ee me (th[B]is way.)
If you [B]see me walking by,
And the tears are in my eyes,
Look away, baby, look away.
Don't look at me
I don't want you to see me (this way.)
