Abmaj7 Gm7 Fm7 
(x3)
Eb
 
[Verse 1]
 
        Abmaj7        Gm7  Fm7
When I opened your le-tter yesterday.
  Eb                   Fm
I could not believe my eyes
            Abmaj7        Gm7   Fm7
'Cause I've already given all I have to give
      Eb                              Fm
And I think it must have slipped your mind
          Abmaj7  Gm7        Fm7
But I re- member     not too long ago.
Eb                  Ab                 Bb
I gave it all. It's gone and I gave it all to you
        Gm7                Cm    Bb       F/A
Now I'm living on borrowed time, but it's mine ...Oh do you hear me?
 
[Chorus]
 
Abmaj7           Gm7  Fm7
I cannot believe it's true
               Abmaj7           Gm7  Fm7
Are you really doing the things you  do?
     Abmaj7         Gm7  Fm7         Eb
No I cannot believe it's you, really you
 
[Verse 2]
 
         Abmaj7             Gm7      Fm7
Oh these people I'm talking to don't understand
Eb                Fm
Don't seem to rea-lize
        Abmaj7    Gm7         Fm7
They're listening but they're not hearing me
        Eb                    Fm
They're being too cruel to be kind
            Abmaj7  Gm7    Fm7
Any kind of feeling that I had is gone
       Eb                  Ab                 Bb
'Cause I gave it all. It's gone and I gave it all to you.
        Gm7                Cm    Bb       F/A
Now I'm living on borrowed time, but it's mine ...Oh do you hear me?
 
[Chorus]
Abmaj7           Gm7  Fm7
I cannot believe it's true
               Abmaj7           Gm7  Fm7
Are you really doing the things you  do?
     Abmaj7         Gm7  Fm7         Eb
No I cannot believe it's you, really you
 
[Bridge 1]
 
Db       Eb
Over and over
  Fm
I keep on telling myself
Db       Eb
Over and over
  Fm
I hope I'm gonna wake up
Db Eb
Over and over
  Fm
I know it's really happening
            Db           Eb    Bb7
And there's nothing that I can say
     Db          Eb             Fm
'Cos nothing can change all the things that you've done to me
Db          Eb      Bb7
Nothing can make me stay ...'Cause you know
 
[Chorus]
 
Abmaj7           Gm7  Fm7
I cannot believe it's true
               Abmaj7           Gm7  Fm7
Are you really doing the things you  do?
     Abmaj7         Gm7  Fm7         Eb
No I cannot believe it's you, really you
 
[Bridge 2]
 
F#               G#7                Bmaj7           C#
   I know it's a crying shame, it's all the same to you
F#                 G#7               Bmaj7        C#
   It seems all so well laid out but I cannot get through.
Eb                   Ab
   Never meant it to show
           Eb                        Ab
It started happening, that's all you know.

                  When I opened your letter yesterday
I could not believe my eyes
'Cos I've already given all I have to give
And I think it must have slipped your mind
But I remember not so long ago
I gave it all, it's gone
And I gave it all to you
Now I'm living on borrowed time, but it's mine

Oh, d'you hear me?
I cannot believe it's true
Are you really doing the things you do.
No I cannot believe it's you, really you

Oh these people I'm talking to don't understand
They don't seem to realize
They're listening but they're not hearing me
They're being too cruel to be kind
Any kind of feeling that I had is gone
'Cos I gave it all, it's gone
And I gave it all to you
Now I'm living on borrowed time, but it's mine

Oh, d'you hear me?
I cannot believe it's true
Are you really doing the things you do.
No I cannot believe it's you, really you

Over and over I keep on telling myself
Over and over I hope I'm gonna make up
Over and over I know it's really happening
And there's nothing that I can say
'Cos nothing can change all the things that you've done to me
Nothing can make me stay

Oh, 'cos you know I cannot believe it's true
Are you really doing the things you do
No I cannot believe it's you, really you

I know it's a crying shame, it's all the same to you
It seems all so well laid out but I cannot get through
Never meant it to show
It started happening, that's all you know.

Oh, I gave it all to you
Now I'm living on borrowed time, but it's mine

Oh, d'you hear me?
I cannot believe it's true
Are you really doing the things you do
No I cannot believe it's you, really you

Over and over I keep on telling myself
Over and over I Hope I'm gonna make up
But over and over I know it's really happening
And there's nothing that I can say
'Cos nothing can change all the things that you do to me
Nothing can make me stay

'Cos you know I cannot believe it's true
Are you really doing the things you do
No I cannot believe it's you, really you
