'Cause I'm [C]screaming at y[G]ou
And you're [C]screaming at m[F]e

And how you wish I could [F]be
[C]'Bout what I think you should [G]do
And how you [F]wish I could[C] be

I ain't [C]never seen a [B]face so f[Am]ine
[F]You walk on p[G]ast
And I [C]wonder if you'll [B]really come b[Am]ack this time
[F]I did the best that I co[C]uld
But s[G]ome things don't work o[F]ut like th[C]ey should
I did the best that I could

Did the best that I could

We did the best that we could

But some things don't work out like they should

No, some things don't work out like they should

Darling, some things don't work out at all
