[d] what’s the use to deny we’ve been [g] living a [d] lie
that we should have admitted be[a]fore
we were [d] just victims of a [g] half-hearted [d] love
so why should we [a] try any[d]more

the vows that we make are [g] only to [d] break
we drift like a wave from the [a] sh*r*
the [d] kisses we steal we [g] know are not [d] real
so why should we [a] try any[d]more

the dreams that we knew can [g] never come [d] true
they’re gone to return no [a] more
[d] false love like ours [g] fades with the [d] flowers
so why should we [a] try any[d]more

our story’s so old a[g]gain has been [d] told
on the past let’s close the [a] door
and [d] smile don’t regret but [g] live and [d] forget
there’s no use to [a] try any[d]more
