My heart, I have found, Gets carved surely by the pound. God knows. I tried, Tried to hold you with all my might But time has won, And I could never be that strong. (Don't cry) I couldn't be that strong, (Don't cry) That used to be my favourite song. (Don't cry) Tears so bittersweet {riff 1} Fill my eyes whenever we meet, It's always bittersweet. I cut and I bleed. You seem to find that so hard to believe! That's just too, too bad. You could never touch the love that we had. (Don't cry) For the love we had, (Don't cry) Sometimes we try to take it back. (Don't cry) Tears so bittersweet Kiss my cheeks whenever we meet. It's always bittersweet. {Guitar solo} E -------------------|--------------|--------------------|------------| B -10~--12-/-15--17~-|-15--12--10~--|-12--15--19---------|-17--15-----| G -------------------|--------------|---------(1/2 bend)-|---------14-| E -------17-|-15--14----|-------17-/-19--17~--| B ----15----|--------15-|----15---------------| G -14-------|-----------|-14------------------| (Don't Cry) For a love-gone-wrong (Don't cry) That used to be my favourite song (Don't cry) Tears so bittersweet Kiss my eyes whenever we meet. {riff 1} Anyway...
