[Verse 1]
              |C#           |G#          |C#   C#sus2/4 |C#
Sometimes they ask me if I'm really happy now
      |C#           |G#           |C#   C#sus2/4 |C#
I say, sure, I never loved her any-how
      |F#             |F#         |C#            |F#
But in-side I long for you and the way it used to be
        |C#                 |G#                 |C#   C#sus2/4 |  %  |  %  |
I look a-round and there's a heartache following me


[Verse 2]
        |C#          |G#                |C#   C#sus2/4 |C#
I always say that I'm really glad you're gone
      |C#        |G#            |C#   C#sus2/4 |C#7
I even act like I never cared at all
        |F#            |F#        |C#          |F#
But your memory lingers on and I'm never really free
        |C#                 |G#                 |C#   C#sus2/4 |  %  |  %  |
I look a-round and there's a heartache following me


[Bridge]
           |G#            |G#        |C#            |C#
I pawned my ring and every-thing that tied me to the past
 |D#7        |D#7             |G#             |G#7
I say I never loved her, never meant for it to last
     |F#              |F#          |C#            |F#
But I know it's just a game and the loser's always me
        |C#                 |G#                 |C#   C#sus2/4 |  %  |  %  |C#
I look a-round and there's a heartache following me

|C#   C#sus2/4      |C#           |G#          |C#   C#sus2/4 [cont. V.2 prog.]
      Sometimes they ask me if I'm really happy now
I say, sure, I never loved her anyhow
But inside I long for you and the way it used to be
        |C#                 |G#                 |C#   C#sus2/4
I look a-round and there's a heartache following me
