Bb/D                   C/E
I guess you're okay
       Bb                                        C
You seem to feel better these days
I've known you for so long
                     Bb                          Am7     Dm
I've seen your brightness go from blue to grey

You know that's true
You can shake your head but I can prove
I've seen things through your eyes
You think you win but in the end you lose

And there's no second guess
We take no second bets
              C                                       F
Chances are we're a long way from happiness
Don't cover up the road to love
With words that can't express
                    C               C#dim7  Dm
The truth implies you're high and dry
                    Bb                  C
And you're a long way from happiness

I'm one step behind
Looking out for you all the time
I'll put my faith in you
And steer you clear of love that leaves you blind
