VERSE:

D Bm

Some love is just a lie of the heart

D Bm A

The cold remains of what began with a passionate start

And they may not want it to end

A7 D

But it will, it's just a question of when

 

 

VERSE:

D Bm

I've lived long enough to have learned

D Bm A

The closer you get to the fire the more you get burned

But that won't happen to us

A7 D

Because it's always been a matter of trust

 

INSTRUMENTAL: - PLAY INTRO -

 

VERSE:

D Bm

I know you're an emotional girl

D Bm A

It took a lot for you to not lose your faith in this world

I can't offer you proof

A7 D

But you're gonna face a moment of truth

 

VERSE:

D Bm

It's hard when you're always afraid

D Bm A

You just recover when another belief is betrayed

So break my heart if you must

A7

It's a matter of trust

 

BREAK:

Em

You can't go the distance

F#m

With too much resistance

G A

I know you have doubts sl.

Bm G G / A D

But for God's sake don't shut me out

 

 

VERSE:

 

D Bm

This time you've got nothing to lose

D Bm A

You can take it, you can leave it whatever you choose

I won't hold back anything

A7 D

And I'll walk away a fool or a king

 

 

VERSE:

D Bm

Some love is just a lie of the mind

D Bm A

It's make believe until it's only a matter of time

And some might have learned to adjust

A7 D

But then it never was a matter of trust

 

 

INSTRUMENTAL: PLAY IMPROVISED INTRO 3x's THEN A BARRE CHORD A or POWER CHORD A

 

BREAK:

Em

I'm sure you're aware love

F#m G A

We've both had our share of believing too long sl.

Bm G G / A D

When the whole situation was wrong

 

 

VERSE:

D Bm

Some love is just a lie of the soul

D Bm A

A constant battle for the ultimate state of control

After you've heard lie upon lie

A7 D

There can hardly be a question of why

 

 

VERSE:

D Bm

Some love is just a lie of the heart

D Bm A

The cold remains of what began with a passionate start

But that can't happen to us

A7 D

'Cause it's always been a matter of trust

 

OUTRO:

PLAY INTRO OVER AND OVER (about 5 times)AND SING THESE WORDS ....

 

It's a matter of trust

 

It's always been a matter of trust

 

It's a matter of trust
