If It Kills Me


            Hello, tell me you know
            Yeah, you figured me out
            Something gave it away
            And it would be such a beautiful moment
            To see the look on your face
            To know that I know that you know now

            And baby that's a case of my wishful thinking
            You know nothing
            Cause you and I
            Why, we go carrying on for hours, on and
            We get along much better
            Than you and your boyfriend

            Well all I really wanna do is love you
            A kind much closer than friends use
            But I still can't say it after all we've been through
            And all I really want from you is to feel me
            As the feeling inside keeps building
            And I will find a way to you if it kills me
            If it kills me

            Well how long, can I go on like this,
            Wishing to kiss you,
            Before I rightly explode?
            This double life I lead isn't healthy for me
            In fact it makes me nervous
            If I get caught I could be risking it all

            Baby there's a lot that I miss
            In case I'm wrong

            Well all I really wanna do is love you
            A kind much closer than friends use
            But I still can't say it after all we've been through
            And all I really want from you is to feel me
            As the feeling inside keeps building
            And I will find a way to you if it kills me
            If it kills me

            If I should be so bold
            I'd ask you to hold my heart in your hand
            Tell you from the start how I've longed to be your man
            But I never said I would
            I guess I'm gonna miss my chance again

            All I really wanna do is love you
            A kind much closer than friends use
            But I still can't say it after all we've been through
            And all I really want from you is to feel me
            As the feeling inside keeps building
            And I will find a way to you if it kills me
            If it kills me
            If it kills me
            I think it might kill me

            And all I really want from you is to feel me
            It's a feeling inside that keeps building
            And I will find a way to you if it kills me
            If it kills me
            If it kills me
            It might kill me

          Intro:
          In the album version the song starts straight on the 1st Verse. In the acoustic
          version he plays this four times. It's finger picked staccato.

           1st Verse:
          Play the finger picking part four times. Then move on to this part.

           2nd Verse:
          Play the finger picking part two times.
          Break on the last G/D when he sings "boyfriend".
          Then hold the break for half a bar more.
          
          
          
           Chorus:
          In the chorus are played strummed chords, so I find it simpler to notate it in
          standard bars. In the chart to the right are all the six chords that are played
          in the choruses. G and B are used later.
                                                  D    F#m    Bm    Gm       G       B

                                              :---2-----2-----4-----3---- ---4--- ---4---:
                                              :---0-----4-----4-----5---- ---5--- ---4---:

           To end the chorus, play this little tail.

           3rd Verse:
          Similar to 1st Verse,
          just strum the A chord in right before the chorus.
          
          
          
           Chorus:
          Similar to previous.
          
          
          
           Bridge:
            Em7                       B/D#        Em

          |-------------------7-7---|-5-----5-----------5---5-|
          
          [break]
            A
          |-5-----------------------|
          |-5-----------------------|
          |-6-----------------------|
          |-7-----------------------|
          |-7-----------------------|
          |-5-----------------------|
          
          
          
           Final Chorus:
          
          | D | F#m | G | Gm |
          
          ||: D | F#m | Bm | Gm :|| 3x
          
          | D | F#m | B | Gm |
          
          Again, finish off with the little tail.
          End with the slide and the D chord.
          
            D                         Gm    Am7   A#    Am7          D
