Intro: A F#m A F#m
[A]Every time I end up waking up in some hotel without my
[F#m]Set of keys
[A]Coming to, remembering the way you turned me out when I was
[F#m]On my knees
[(F#m)]You think that was
[D]One u[F#m]p for y[E]ou
[(E)]But I know I[D] scored [F#m]something [E]too
[A]When I see the way you have to struggle just to do a little
[F#m]Simple thing
[A]I feel apologetic just because I'm not particularly
[(F#m)]So I let you
[D]take [F#m]me [E]down
[(E)]I'm like your
[D]rent-[F#m]A- [E]clown
[C]When I saw my [Em]baby cry
[F]I knew that he [G]loved me
[C]That was some grea[Em]t victo[F]ry
[(F)]He cried because of [G]me
[Am]He hit me with hi[G]s belt
[F]But his tears were all I fe[G]lt
[C]When I s[Em]aw my ba[Am]by cry[E7]
[F]I~~~~~~~~~ kn[G]ew~~~~~~~~
he loved me[C] [G] [Am] [Am]
[C] [G] [Am] [Am]  
[A]When you try and cut me down and push me back if I attack your
[A]I rise up to the challenge 'cause I like to taste the sugar of your
[F#m]violent mood
[(F#m)]Just like a [D]stor[F#m]my [E]sea
[(E)]You're natural
[D]Poe[F#m]try to [E]me
[C]When I saw my [Em]baby cry
[F]I knew he [G]loved me
[C]That was some great [Em]victor[F]y
[(F)]He cried because of [G]me
[Am]He hit me with his[G] belt
[F]But his tears were all I fel[G]t
[C]When I s[Em]aw my ba[Am]by cry [E7]
[F]I~~~~~~~~~ kn[G]ew~~~~~~~~
he loved me[C] [Em] [Am] [Am]
[F]I knew
[G]He loved me[C]
