[C]Thats the way it [G]seemed.
C G D Stop.
Disappointment haunted all my dreams.
Chorus:
For the chorus the strumming pattern is simply down, down-up, down (V V^V). so you play
first chord (G) on the first down strum, and hit the C on the final down strum, and
change chords on the upstroke.
During the chorus Guitar two should play the guitar 2 inro riff over each line of the chorus.
Then I saw her [G]face[C],[G]
now [C]Im a bel[G]iever[C] [G]
[C]Not a [G]trace[C] [G]
of [C]doubt in my [G]mind.[C] [G]
C G(one stroke then mute) C(one stroke)
Im in love, ooh
G(one stroke) F(one stroke) (Riff below)
Im a believer! I couldnt leave her if I tried.

Play this Riff exactly the same as the end of the beggining riff except repeat twice (as indicated).
Verse 2:
[G]I thought love was [D]more or less a [G]given thing,
[G]Seems the more I [D]gave the less I [G]got.
[C]Whats the use in [G]tryin?
[C]All you get is [G]pain.
C G D Stop.
When I needed sunshine I got rain.
Chorus:

The solo for this song is very simple even for a begginer and sounds great when played
the song's chords.
