        Em | D Dsus4 Csus2 | D Dsus4 Csus2 | G D

   Em                       D     Dsus4 G
He ran to the river but the water'd run dry
   Em                        D        Dsus4 G
He ran to the candle but the light had done died
   Em                      D  Dsus4 Csus2 D Dsus4 Csus2 G D
And I used to love you and not even try

He ran to the temple with tears in his eyes
He fell on his knees and reached up at the same time
Said I only love you knowing I'll die

G       D         F           G
 All my life I've tried to be good
      F          Csus2   G
Or at least to myself
You did what you thought you should
But it hurt me like hell
Like hell

He ran to his mother and to her he cried
You never told the whole story and I
Think all along I pretended to try

All my life I've tried to be good
Or at least to myself
You did what you thought you should
But it hurt me like hell
All my life I've tried to be good
Or at least to myself
You did what you thought you should
But it hurt me like hell
Yes it hurt me like hell
Well it hurt me like hell
Well it hurt me like hell
Like hell
