D/F# G C We've
known her ever since she was a kid Em

was the kind of girl who repeats her mistakes Em
D/F# G C Her
parents never minded what she did Em
D C G She
was a fallen angel with dirt on her face Am
G/B C D But
past a certain point she stayed behind Am
G/B C D The
two of us could never read her mind Am
G/B C D The
million ways she had of killing time Chorus

we just gave up Em

limits to love C

*** 2 We'd:
get impatient with her now and then Em D/F# G C Oh
she'd, smile and say `now, you're not being nice '.Em D C G I
guess her definition of a friend Em D/F# G C Was
someone long on love and, short on advice Em D C G We
gave her money but the money's bad Am G/B C D She
took the dollars and just tore them in half Am G/B C D We
got so angry we, just had to laugh Am G/B C D Chorus

get in trouble but she will scrape through Em D/F# G C Oh

say she's stupid but, it'd be untrue Em D/F# G C Oh
you've, got to be smart if you're fooling yourself Em D C G We
tried to love her but, our love unwound Am G/B C D (so
our love was weak) We
talked about her when she wasn't around Am G/B C D (so
our talk was cheap) And
still we felt that we were letting her down Am G/B C D Chorus
