Gsus4 G Gsus4 G

This can't continue, It makes no sense

Fsus4 F Fsus4 F

We're getting nowhere, I've lost all my confidence

Gsus4 G Gsus4 G

The boy wants something, I'm satisfied

Fsus4 F Fsus4 F

He needs attention and care our love can't provide

 

G

 

Gm Ebmaj7

And then there's the matter of us...

 

[verse pattern]

Gm F

I'd like to prove that I don't think that

Ebmaj7 F Fsus4 F

you've seen the best of me

Gm

I've stood up for the boy and

D D D G G D D G G

I've clung to the hopes and the lies

Gm F

I wish that the pain in your gaze

Ebmaj7 F Fsus4 F

Could again be a test of me

Gm D

But when I look in the mirror,

G C D G

I believe my own eyes

 

[chorus pattern]

C D G C D G

I believe my own eyes,

C Em

Know I've come to the end

D C

All my patience is gone

C C

When I'm doubtful I tend

G

To believe my own eyes...

 

[repeat verse pattern]

I'd like to declare this devotion and

Care is the life to live

That nothing has changed and that

Time isn't passing us by

But I have to say here that for us

There's a clear-cut alternative

When we look at each other, we believe our own eyes

 

[repeat chorus]

 

[break]

Gm Gm Fsus4 F Fsus4 F

 

E E Bsus4 B

 

E A B E A B

This has gone far enough

Cm B E Cm B E

After all we've been through

C

We can't be blamed,

D G C D G

We've done all we can humanly do

E A B E A B

It's a time to be tough

Cm B E Cm B E

A time to be wise

C

We must stop chasing false dreams

D G C D G

and recover our lives

 

[chorus]

I believe my own eyes,

Know I've come to the end

All my patience is gone

When I'm doubtful I tend

To believe my own eyes...

 

[verse pattern]

I'd like to believe that I don't feel that we've seen the best of us

And the way to believe is to see where the real future lies

I hope that the pain in your gaze can again be a test of us

But when I look in the mirror, I believe my own eyes

 

[chorus]

Let's believe our own eyes

Know we've come to the end

All our patience is gone

Let's admit we intend

To believe our own eyes
