'Cause I couldn't stop the world, 'cause I loved you
I couldn't stop the world, and I don't want to
I couldn't stop the world, and I won't
E5(VII) B5
'Cause it ain't - enough
(riff 1 two times)
(verse)
You had another bad day
You let me know that you just can't take it
I've given up on you
You live in truth and I know I can't fake it
'Cause the stars you see are on a dirty sidewalk
And they ain't polished and new
(bridge)
They don't come true
And I know, it's what I'd do
Here I go
(chorus)
'Cause I couldn't stop the world, 'cause I loved you
I couldn't stop the world, and I don't want to
I couldn't stop the world, and I won't
'Cause it ain't enough

[B4]I'm not too [C#]young for the [E]world
[B4]And I can't [C#]change for the [E]world
(simile)
'Cause I don't care for the world
I don't need to stop the world
It don't make sense, the world
(fade out)
