Intro : Dm   Bb   F   C     (2x)


           Dm                 Bb                   F   
     You took your coat off and stood in the rain,
                              C
     You were always crazy like that
      Dm                         Bb
     I watched from my window,
                F                                 C
     always felt I was outside looking in on you
     Dm
     You were always the mysterious one
             Bb
     with dark eyes and careless hair,
                         F                               C
     You were fashionably sensitive, but too cool to care
     Dm                           Bb                                F
     Then you stood in my doorway, with nothing to say
                          C
     besides some comment on the weather
     Gm
     Well in case you failed to notice,
     Bb
     In case you failed to see,
      F
     This is my heart bleeding before you,
          C
     This is me down on my knees

     Bb                C              F               Dm
     These foolish games are tearing me apart
     Bb                     C             F                 Bb
     Your thoughtless words are breaking my heart
                           Dm
     You're breaking my heart

      Dm                                        Bb     
     You were always brilliant in the morning
                          F                          C
     Smoking your cigarettes, talking over coffee
     Dm                                Bb
     Your philosophies on art, Baroque moved you,
                                     F
     You loved Mozart and you'd speak of your loved ones
            C
     As I clumsily strummed my guitar
     Dm
     You'd teach me of honest things 
     Bb
     Things that were daring, things that were clean
     F                                   C
     Things that knew what an honest dollar did mean
       Dm                              Bb
     So I hid my soiled hands behind my back
    F                                                  C

     Somewhere along the line I must've gone off track with you
    Gm                                                  Bb
     Excuse me, think I've mistaken you for somebody else
    F
     Somebody who gave a damn,
    C
     Somebody more like myself

    Bb                 C              F               Dm
     These foolish games are tearing me apart
    Bb                      C             F                Bb
     Your thoughtless words are breaking my heart
                           Dm
     You're breaking my heart

     Dm                Bb                          F
     You took your coat off and stood in the rain
                             C
     you were always crazy like that...........
