VERSE
A                      E/G#
I can't find a reason to let go
      F#m                  D
Even though you've found a new love
          F#m                   D
And she's what your dreams are made of
A                    E/G#
I can find a reason to hang on
          F#m            D
What went wrong can be forgiven
        F#m                D      A
Without you it ain't worth living alone


CHORUS
    E       D       A         D
Sometimes I wake up crying at night
    E           D                A
And sometimes I scream out your name
     E              D       A
What right does she have to take you away
     Bm          D         E
When for so long you were mine


VERSE 2
I took out all the pictures of our wedding day
It was a time of love and laughter
Happy ever after
But even those old pictures have begun to fade
Please tell me she's not real
And that you're really coming home to stay


CHORUS
    E       D       A         D
Sometimes I wake up crying at night
    E           D                A
And sometimes I scream out your name
     E              D       A
What right does she have to take your heart away
     Bm          D         E    D
When for so long you were mine


BRIDGE
G              D/F#
I can give you two good reasons
   F                    C
To show your love's not blind
A                  E/G#         F#m       D
He's two and she's four and you know they adore you
   Bm         A/C#      D                   E
So how can I tell them you've changed your mind


FINAL CHORUS (modulated to the key of B)
     F#     E       B
Sometimes I wake up crying at night
    F#          E               B
And sometimes I scream out your name
     F#                   E                 B
What right does she have to take your heart away
         C#m              E     F#
When for so long you were mine
   C#m          E   F#      B
I remember when you were mine
