Guitar Figure 1
[A] [Amaj7] [A7] [D] 

[A] I find it hard, hard to let go
[Amaj7] And you are entitled to know
[A7] You have brought nothing else but [D]bliss,
[Dm] A great deal of frustration, [A] a voluntary [F#m]occupation,
[Bm] Driving me in[Dm]sane and off the [A]wall
[A] And we were free to choose each other
[Amaj7] But now it seems like something other
[A7] Have you placed me where I [D]stand?
[Dm] Turned caring like a mother, [A] afraid to [F#m]lose each other
[Bm] It got us this far, [Dm] now problems [Dm6]are:
[A] I have no [C#]bags to pack, no [D]suitcase [Dm]waiting in the hall
[A] You have no [F#m]make-up, no stocki - [F]ings in my [E]drawer
[A]Oh-[F#m]oh, how did we for[Bm]ge - [E]et? How could we for[A]get?
[F#m] It's easy to [Bm]lear - [E]earn if you never re[A]gret
[A] When you live in paranoia
[Amaj7] And you know she's got you, oh yeah
[A7] You can't leave until you know the [D]truth
[Dm] So for months you're going nowhere [A] until you [F#m]seize the day
And [Bm]place yourself be[Dm]hind the steering [A]wheel
[A] Or you can't end like you don't want to,
[Amaj7] The opposite of what you planned to
[A7] You can watch the ships when they're a[D]broad
[Dm] Become a joke when people see you, [A] 'cause it's e[F#m]nough to please you
[Bm] You got this far, [Dm] step put of the [Dm6]car[A]
(repeat CHORUS)
(repeat INTERLUDE)
[Dm] [A]  

Bass figure:

[A] We'll never learn in the future,
[Amaj7] This is it, seemingly, I am sure
[A7] I know we haven't been together [D]now[Dm]
[A] It wasn't meant to be this way so
[Amaj7] We'll give it days and days and
[A7] We'll try to make it easy [D]now
[Dm] Once I believed we could approach this,
[A] Now I have [F#m]faith placed in the [Bm]things you call [Dm6]fa [-]- [A]ate
In the [Dm]things you call [Dm6]fa - [A]ate
In the [Dm]things you call [A]fate
