  Bm        A                    Bm
It's not a case of doing what's right
               A                Bm
It's just the way I feel that matters
              A                    G
Tell me I'm wrong, I don't really care

It's not a case of share and share alike
I take what I require
I don't understand... you say it's not fair

  C#m             D
You expect me to act like a lover
  C#m                   D
Consider my moves and deserve the reward
  C#m        D
To hold you in my arms
     C#m          Cmaj7                        Bm A Bm A
And wait... and wait for something to happen

It's not a case of telling the truth
Some lines just fit the situation
You call me a liar, you would anyway

It's not a case of aiming to please
You know you're always crying
It's just your part in the play for today
