Sometimes it Be That Way

	  		      G                       D 
   Night with its shattered teeth attempts to speak 
    C                         G               *G* 
   My pen is present but courage left via the sink 
         G                             D 
   And I'm sorry I snuck up on you from behind 
       C                      G            
   I'm sorry not all my love letters did rhyme 
   D                              G 
   And I'm sorry that Jesus died for my sins 
        D                              G 
   And I swear to God it won't happen again 
     D                                                    D     C   C 
   And I'm sorry if it was my swerve that tempted you to sway 
     D              G             G 
   Oh well, sometimes it be that way 
  D                          C 
   And Romeo was a very nice man 
       G           G                    G          G 
   He said "Jewel, I don't think you quite understand"  
     D                                           C 
   And I'm sorry if you had to explain it like this 
          G                                       D 
   I'm sorry I was a point you were destined to miss 
        G                               D 
   And I'm sorry I spoke to you irreverently 
       G                                 D 
   Down in the hollow by the old olive tree 
       D                                         C         C 
   And I'm sorry if my heart breaking ruined your day  
     D  D      G               G 
   Oh well, sometimes It be that way 
    
   Chorus: 
                 D/A            G    
       I said "Oh well, I got nothing left to sell 
                D/A                 G 
       This love was a bell that rang unheard in the air 
             D/A                 G               A         A 
       I was bound to find out that you didn't care 
        D     D         G          G 
       Oh well, sometimes it be that way 
    G                             D 
   And Aphrodite with her neon lamp 
     C                                  G 
  Kissed Neptune they put her face on a stamp 
           G                                        D 
   And I'm sorry I used it to mail a letter to you 
                    C                                G 
   I'm sorry I'm glue and the rest bounces off of you 
            D                           G 
   And I'm sorry not even this jet's metal wings 
          D                            G 
   Could get across these simple things 
      D                   D                  C 
   And I'm sorry if I ever sang your name in vain 
   D      D        G             G 
   Oh well, sometimes it be that way 
       D                         C 
   And Goldilocks, well she knew three bears 
      G           G               GG*      GG* 
   They all ate oatmeal and tiptoed upstairs 
      D                              C 
   And I'm sorry I never got to find you like this 
      G                           D 
   Sleeping like a baby and swaddled in bliss 
       G                         D 
   And I'm sorry for all the times 
         G                                   D 
   I forgot to imply something in between the lines 
       D                  C                     C 
   And i'm sorry if my heart breaking ruined your day 
      D      D          G            G 
   Oh well, sometimes it be that way 
    
   Chorus: 
       I said "Oh well, I got nothing left to sell 
       This love was a bell that rang unheard in the air 
       I was bound to find out that you didn't care 
       Oh well, sometimes it be that way 
         G                                       D 
   And shadow's long fingers they dance on the wall 
         C                           G 
   Electricity chases its tail in the hall 
           G                                     D 
   And 'm sorry if my arms to you were just empty rooms 
            C                        G 
   I'm sorry I never could comfort you 
 
           D                                G 
 And I'm sorry St. Petersburg is a miserable town- 
           D                       G 
   And I'm sorry if I am bringing you down 
      D    D                       C    
   And I'm sorry if I caused you pain 
      C    D  D      G         G 
   Oh well, sometimes it be that way 
    G                                        D 
   And flame licks the air with its silver tongue 
          C                                G 
   Night has many hands but I have just one 
            G                                      D 
   And I'm sorry I walked in on you unexpectedly 
               C                              G 
   I'm sorry I never served you Camomile tea 
          D                                 G 
   And I'm sorry I didn't always have a match 
     D                                               G 
   That could start a fire big enough for your heart to catch 
      D                     D                             C 
   And I'm sorry if it was my swerve that tempted you to sway 
   C   D     D      G                  *G* 
   Oh well, sometimes it be that way
