I'M SORRY FOR YOU, MY FRIEND

[E] You've known so long that you were wrong
But still you had your [B7] way
You told her lies and alibis
And hurt her more each [E] day
But now your conscience bothers you
You've reached your [E7] journey's [A] end
You're [B7] asking me for sympathy
I'm Sorry For You, My [E] Friend.
You laughed inside each time she cried
You tried to make her blue
She tagged along through right and wrong
Because she worshipped you
You know that you're the one to blame
There's no use to pretend
Today's the day you start to pay
I'm Sorry For You, My Friend.
Today as she walked arm in arm
At someone else's side
It made you stop and realize
That time has turned the tide
You should have known you'd be alone
'Cause cheaters never win
You tried and lost, now pay the cost
