If you think that I don't know 
 A/E             E              G/E A/E
About the little tricks you play
E                        G/E            A/E        E
And never see you when deliberately you put things in my way

               A       
Well, here's a poke at you
             B
You're gonna choke on it, too
             A
You're gonna lose that smile

Because all the while

You took advantage of my trust in you when I was so far away
I saw you holding lots of other guys 
And now you've got the nerve to say
That you still want me
Well, that's as may be
But you gotta stand trial
Because all the while
              A     A/B E
I can see for miles and miles

Mine to see on clear days

You thought that I would need a 
C/A             D/A       A 
Crystal ball to see right through the haze

               D
