	        G                   D7      G 
I've been trying so hard to forget you 
                  D7           G 
But this chore of forgetting I find 
       C                        G 
Has me burning both ends of the candle 
    D7                     G 
And fighting a battle with time 

                      D7          G 
What I'd give just to sleep for a moment 
                       D7        G 
But it's a luxury that I can't afford 
      C                      G 
For I know that I just dream about you 
       D7                       G 
And my tears start falling once more 

   C                            G 
So I'm burning both ends of the candle 
  D7                                  G 
I just hope that it lasts through the night 
    C                         G 
For each moment the candle is burning 
       D7                   G 
Brings closer the ending of life 

Repeat #3
