You Left It Up to Me  Indigo Girls


(Each chord is half a measure.)
(A(9)=x07600, D(9)=xx0230, E/A=x02100.)
[A(9)](intro[A(9)])[D(9)] [E] [A(9)] [A(9)] [D(9)] [E]
When I l[A(9)]et you go, I cu[A(9)]rsed myself with e[D(9)]mpty hands[E]
[A(9)] Strong enough to wa[A(9)]tch you walk,[D(9)] but not enough to [E]understand it
[A(9)] With spiteful e[A(9)]yes you burn for my[D(9)] grace[E]
[A(9)] I was trying to stand out[A(9)]side of this,[D(9)] you were trying [E]to save face
[E] You can sa[E]y that I don't c[D(9)]are (I don't c[D(9)]are)
[E] You can h[E]ope that we sti[D(9)]ll have [D(9)]something left to
sh[A]are; But just betwe[E]en you, baby, and m[D(9)]e[D(9)]
[A] Just betwe[E]en me, baby, and y[D(9)]ou[D(9)]
There's nothing th[A(9)]ere[A(9)] [D(9)] [E]
I finally found someone I can hold
You ask me to defend myself, as if I shouldn't be so bold
Well, get that look off of your face
I don't have the time, (I don't have the time) and you don't have the place
To say that I don't care (I don't care)
And hope that we still have something left to share
But just between me, baby, and you
Just between you, baby, and me
There's nothing there
(Instrumental, same chords as one verse)
Baby, what are you gonna do?
I can't salvage any truth from you
Everybody else already knows
[A(9)] It hurts you to r[A(9)]ealize, so le[D(9)]ave well enough, [E]enough al[A]one[A]
[D] You don't ne[D]ed my hands[E] to help you u[E]nderstand
[A] You don't ne[A]ed to hear my[D] voice (you have no cho[D]ice)
[D] So don't be thr[D]owing stones; the [E]closer we get, the [E]harder they come
Now, [A]even if you're feeling al[A]one, don't come [D]home[D]
[E] 'Cause [E]when it was up to y[D]ou ([D]when it was up to you)
[E] [E]When it was up to y[D]ou, you [D]left it up to
m[A]e (m[E/A]e...) [D(9)] You [E]left it up to
m[A]e, oh you l[E/A]eft, oh you l[D(9)]eft it up to m[E]e
E E D(9) D(9) A(9) A(9) D E A.
When it was up to you, you left it up to me
