Tab

[Verse 1]
      Gb                        Ebm7
They used to say that boys are tough as nails
          F7                               Bbm   Ab
In every way he keeps his heart as guarded as a jail
                 Ebm                F7
Now things have changed, I feel so old
Bb/D      Eb                 Ab               Db
Like any girl could drag my heart across the coals
 
 
[Verse 2]
       Gb                  Ebm7
I was always there in the thick of things
          F7                          Bbm    Ab
I always had the heart of every woman on a string
            Ebm                F7
The danger zone shone from my eyes
Bb/D            Eb            Ab             Db
It seemed like every inch I gained became a mile
 
A/G
 
 
[Chorus]
               D                    Daug
It's not the night reaching in and touching me
                G                             Gm
It's just that breaking hearts ain't what it used to be
               D                          B7
It seems that time has killed that cruel streak in me
     Em7                           A7        A7sus4
And breaking hearts ain't what it used to be
 
      A7       D                   Daug
It's not the light shining in and catching me
                G                             Gm
It's just that breaking hearts ain't what it used to be
              D               B7
But time has come and cast a spell on me
    Em7                           Em7/A A7 D
And breaking hearts ain't what it used  to be
 
 
[Verse 3]
     Gb              Ebm7
And now I know what lonely means
   F                               Bbm  Ab
I used to give so little and gain everything
            Ebm           F7
The darkest part of every day
Bb/D               Eb                 Ab              Db
Is the shadow of another girl as she turns and walks away
 
 
[Verse 4]
       Gb                       Ebm7
Can't say I blame them all for being hurt
       F                            Bbm       Ab
After all, I treated each and every one like dirt
             Ebm                F7
Who wants a heart that's never home?
Bb/D        Eb              Ab           Db
I face the facts and lock myself into a life alone
 
A/G
 
 
[Chorus]
               D                    Daug
It's not the night reaching in and touching me
                G                             Gm
It's just that breaking hearts ain't what it used to be
               D                          B7
It seems that time has killed that cruel streak in me
     Em7                           A7        A7sus4
And breaking hearts ain't what it used to be
 
      A7       D                   Daug
It's not the light shining in and catching me
                G                             Gm
It's just that breaking hearts ain't what it used to be
              D               B7
But time has come and cast a spell on me
    Em7
And breaking hearts
Gb7
