Key: G, EmChords
(Personally, instead of a plain C C I like to hold down the G G on the E E string, just gives it a better sound to me)


G G C C Am Am D D
Once upon a midnight dearie
G G C C Am Am D D
I woke with something in my head
G G C C Am Am D D
I couldn't escape the memory
G G C C Am Am D D
Of a phone call and of what you said
G G C C Am Am D D
Like a game show contestant with a parting gift
C C Am Am D D
I could not believe my eyes
G G C C Am Am D D
When I saw through the voice of a trusted friend
G G C C Am Am D D
Who needs to humor me and tell me lies
G G C C Am Am D D
Yeah humor me and tell me lies
G G C C Am Am D D
And I'll lie too and say I don't mind
G G C C Am Am D D
And as we seek so shall we find

G G C C Am Am D D
And when you're feeling open I'll still be here
G G C C Am Am D D
But not without a certain degree of fear
G G C C Am Am D D
Of what will be with you and me
G G C C Am Am D D
I still can see things hopefully


[CHORUS]
G G C C Am Am D D
But you
G G C C Am Am D D
Why you wanna give me a run-around
G G C C Am Am D D
Is it a sure-fire way to speed things up
G G C C Am Am D D
When all it does is slow me down
Slow me down

(same repeats throughout song)

G G C C
Well all right okay
Am Am D D
So be that way
G G C C
I hope and pray
Am Am D D
That there's something left to say

[CHORUS] x2
G G C C Am Am D D
But you
G G C C Am Am D D
Why you wanna give me a run-around
G G C C Am Am D D
Is it a sure-fire way to speed things up
G G C C Am Am D D
When all it does is slow me down
Slow me down
