Verse 1:

	D                                            D5 C#5 B
	  Keep your head and everything will be cool
	(B)
	You didn't have to make me feel like a fool
	      Asus2    A     Asus2     A         F#m  E
	When I try to say, I feel the way that I do
	B                   F#m  E
	I want to talk with you
	B            E    B   A
	And make it loud and clear
	                                B
	Though you don't care to hear, but

Chorus:

	(w/12-string as per intro)
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/t/todd_rundgren/couldnt_i_just_tell_you_tab.html ]
	 E               B            A
	Couldn't I just tell you the way that I feel
	         B              A     E
	I can't keep it bottled up inside
	     E              B            A
	And couldn't we pretend that its no big deal
	             B              A       E
	And there's really nothing left to hide

Verse 2:

	Something sure doesn't seem right to me
	When you can turn your back whenever you please
	And you stroll away, calmly bid me adieu
	Why can't I talk with you
	And put it in your ear
	Though you don't care to hear, but

[repeat chorus]

Bridge:

	  A   A#  B                  A
	(Hear me out) Why don't you lend me an ear
	  A   A#  B               A
	(Hear me out) You got no reason to fear
	  A   A#  B                  A         E
	(Hear me out) I'll make it perfectly clear
	       F#m   A A# B
	I love you

	(B)      B C C# D
	 /   /   /   /

Verse 3:

	I don't come whining with my heart on my sleeve
	I'm not a coward if that's what you believe
	And I'm not afraid but not ashamed if it's true
	I got to talk with you
	And then I'll make it clear
	 (A)
	Make it clear
	Make it clear
