Verse:           Fadd9              C           G[1]
       I get the feeling that I've lost your attention.

       Fadd9             C          Fadd9             C              G[1]

Bridge:           Fadd9          C           Fadd9      C
        You don't have to take a love that's strong and stable
        You don't have to take a woman with her cards on the table.
                  Fadd       C               Fadd9      C 
        You don't have to be real, you don't have to be true and there
        won't be anyone for you to answer to.
