G                                  Cadd9
 We both lie silently still in the dead of the night.
            G                               Cadd9
Although we both lie close together we feel miles apart inside.
       G                   Cadd9                   G                  Cadd9
Was it something I said or something I did? Did my words not come out right?
         D                               Cadd9
Though I tried not to hurt you, though I tried. But I guess that's why they say

G                  Cadd9
Every rose has its thorn
          G                   Cadd9
Just like every night has its dawn
          G     D                Cadd9    G
Just like every cowboy sings his sad, sad song
                   Cadd9
Every rose has its thorn

  G                                           Cadd9
I listen to our favourite song playing on the radio
         G                                      Cadd9
Hear the D.J. say love's a game of easy come and easy go
      G             Cadd9          G              Cadd9
But I wonder, does he know, has he ever felt like this?
      D                                     Cadd9
And I know that you'd be here right now if I could've let you know somehow, I guess

G                  Cadd9
Every rose has its thorn
          G                   Cadd9
Just like every night has its dawn
          G     D                Cadd9    G
Just like every cowboy sings his sad, sad song
                   Cadd9
Every rose has its thorn

Em                    D             C                  G
 Though it's been a while now I can still feel so much pain.
Em                    D                        C                          G
 Like the knife that cuts you, the wound heals, but the scar, that scar remains

  G                                                 Cadd9
I know I could have saved our love that night if I'd known what to say
G                              Cadd9
 Instead of making love we both made our separate ways
         G                      Cadd9        G                       Cadd9
And now I hear you've found somebody new and that I never meant that much to you
   D                                   Cadd9
To hear that tears me up inside and to see you cuts me like a knife, I guess

G                  Cadd9
Every rose has its thorn
          G                   Cadd9
Just like every night has its dawn
          G     D                Cadd9    G
Just like every cowboy sings his sad, sad song
                   Cadd9              G
Every rose has its thorn
