VERSE 1:
E                    C#m7
I came along when he broke your heart
                F#m/E
That's when you needed someone
          D(no bass) B
To help forget about him

VERSE 2:
E                      C#m7
I gave you love with a brand new start
                F#m/E
That's what you needed the most
            D(no bass)   B
To set your broken heart free

BRIDGE:
G#m7                 G#m7/C#
I know you cried and you felt blue
A                       Am
But when I could I gave strength to you
G#m7        C#m7            C#m7-5/G  B6/F#  
I'm waiting for the day when you can love 
E
again

VERSE 3:
E
I kissed your lips

And when your face looked sad
           F#m       
It made me think about him
             B
And that you still loved him so

VERSE 4:
             E
But you know that pretty soon

I made you feel glad
           F#m
That you belonged to me
         B
And love began to show

BRIDGE:
He hurt you then, but that's all gone
I guess I'm saying you're the only one
I'm waiting for the day when you can love 
again

(VERSE  like 3 and 4 but instrumental)

BRIDGE:
I know you cried and you felt blue
But when I could I gave strength to you
I'm waiting for the day when you can love 
again

You didn't think that I could sit around and let him work
You didn't think that I could sit around and let (watch) him take you
You didn't think that I could sit around and let him go
You didn't think that I could sit back and let you go
You didn't think...
