But she keeps him hanging on - the silly champion
        Em

She says she can4t go home
without a chapter one

There4s so many fish in

I don4t want to hear it, 4cause I know what I4ve done


        Bm                                 Em
And it4s the damage that we do
and never know
               Bm                                     Asus4
