[Verse]
A          G
Tough, you think you've got the stuff
       F#m            D
You're telling me and anyone
       A
You're hard enough
    A
You don't have to put up a fight
    G
You don't have to always be right
F#m                     D
Let me take some of the punches
    A
For you tonight
 
[Pre Chorus]
D            A
Listen to me now
                  F#m
I need to let you know
                         D
You don't have to go it alone
 
[Chorus]
         F#m                       E
And it's you when I look in the mirror
         D                            D
And it's you when I don't pick up the phone
F#m                 E               D
Sometimes you can't make it on your own
 
[Verse]
   A             G
We fight all the time
        F#m           D
You and I... that's alright
          A
We're the same soul
        A               G
I don't need... I don't need to hear you say
           F#m         D
That if we weren't so alike
                A
You'd like me a whole lot more
 
[Pre Chorus]
D            A
Listen to me now
                  F#m
I need to let you know
                         D
You don't have to go it alone
 
[Chorus]
         F#m                       E
And it's you when I look in the mirror
         D                            D
And it's you when I don't pick up the phone
F#m                 E               D
Sometimes you can't make it on your own
 
[Verse]
[F -> C -> Dm]
I know that we don't talk
[F -> C -> Am]
I'm sick of it all
[F -> C -> Dm]         A
Can you hear me when I Sing,
       F#m
you're the reason I sing
D                 E       A
You're the reason why the opera is in me
 
[Pre Chorus]
      D
Yeah, hey now
                     A
Still got to let you know
                             F#m
A house still doesn't make a home
                     D
Don't leave me here alone
 
[Chorus]
         F#m                       E
And it's you when I look in the mirror
         D                             D
And it's you that makes it hard to let go
F#m                 E               D
Sometimes you can't make it on your own
F#m                 E
Sometimes you can't make it
             D
The best you can do is to fake it
F#m                 E        D
Sometimes you can't make it on your own
