can’t let go of her now

[Intro]  E

[Verse 1]
(E)
She's made her mark on me
                 C#m
She's scarred my memory
             E                   A#/C#    B
Made shallow wounds in the depth of       night
               E
And give up my liberty
                C#m
That's what she wants from me
                 E                 A#/C#    B
Well I guess I'd care but it feels al-------right


[Chorus]
(B)      A
And if I lose my grip
        C#m
I won't make it anyhow
     A                   E
So I can't let go of her now


[Verse 2]
(E)
She makes my common sense
              C#m
Come out like self defense
              E             A#/C#  B
She breaks my patience like a      match
           E
And when I snap in half
              C#m
She'll be the first to laugh
         E        A#/C#     B
If I'm a base hit she's the catch

[Chorus]
         A
And if I lose my grip
        C#m
I won't make it anyhow
     A                   E
So I can't let go of her now


[Middle 8]
           B                C#m
Just don't tell her I would die
     A             B
If I let her slip away
G#                C#m
Let her think I'm resigned
           A                   B              C#m
Like those drying clothes just hang on to the line


[Instrumental]   (C#m)  A  E  B C#m  A


[Verse 3]
(A)            E
She's made her mark on me
             C#m
Those little lines you can see
                E                 B
They're written through me like a poem
            E
She makes a mockery
         C#m
Of all I hold life to be
           E               B
But in the end I come back home

[Chorus]
         A
And if I lose my grip
        C#m
I won't make it anyhow
     A                   C#m
So I can't let go of her now
           A
And not to lose my grip
          C#m
That's my vow
     A                   E
So I can't let go of her now
