Intro- E A B E A B E
B C#m
Did they tear it out, with talons of steel
G#m A
And give you a shot, so that you wouldn't feel
B E A B E
And wash it away, as if it wasn't real

B C#m
It's just a mistake, I won't have to face
G#m A
Don't give it a name, don't give it a place
B E
Don't give it a chance, it's lucky in a way

A B
It must have felt strange, to find me inside you
E A
I hadn't intended to stay
B
If you want to keep it right, put it to sleep at night
C#m A B
Squeeze it until it could say

CHRRUS
C#m A B C#m A B
You can't be too strong You can't be too strong
C#m A B E
You can't be too strong
A E B E
You can't be too strong You decide what's wrong

B C#m
Well I ain't gonna cry, I'm gonna rejoice
G#m A
And shout myself dry, and go see the boys
B E A B
They'll laugh when I say, I left it overseas

E B C#m
Yeah babe I know that it gets dark, down by Luna Park
G#m A
But everybody else, is squeezing out a spark
B E
That happened in the heat, somewhere in the dark, in the dark

A B
The doctor gets nervous, completing the service
E A
He's all rubber gloves and no head
B
He fumbles the light switch, it's just another minor hitch
C#m A B
Wishes to God he was dead

REPEAT CHORUS

A E B E
You can't be too strong You decide what's wrong
A E B E
Can't be too hard, too tough, too rough, too right, too wrong
A E B E
And you, can't be too strong
A E B
Baby you can't be too strong...
