[Verse 1] 
C
I can see you standing, honey 
Am
With his arms around your body 
C                                      Am
Laughin', but the joke's not funny at all 
C
And it took you five whole minutes 
Am
To pack us up and leave me with it 
C                                       Am
Holdin' all this love out here in the hall


[Chorus] 
F            G                Am
I think I've seen this film before 
      G
And I didn't like the ending 
F             G           Am
You're not my homeland anymore 
   G                   F
So what am I defending now? 
            G                Am               C
You were my town, now I'm in exile, seein' you out 
F              G                Am
I think I've seen this film before 
C    Am  C  Am
Ooh, ooh, ooh 


[Verse 2] 
C
I can see you starin', honey 
Am
Like he's just your understudy 
C                                       Am
Like you'd get your knuckles bloody for me 
C
Second, third, and hundredth chances 
Am
Balancin' on breaking branches 
C                            Am
Those eyes add insult to injury
 


[Chorus] 
F            G                Am
I think I've seen this film before 
      G
And I didn't like the ending 
F             G           Am
I'm not your problem anymore 
   G                   F
So who am I offending now? 
            G                Am               C
You were my crown, now I'm in exile, seein' you out  
F              G                Am
I think I've seen this film before 
                               C
So I'm leaving out the side door
 

[Bridge] 
              Am               G
So step right out, there is no amount
          F
Of crying I can do for you
         C
All this time
                             Am
We always walked a very thin line
                        G
You didn't even hear me out (You didn't even hear me out)
                         F
You never gave a warning sign (I gave so many signs)
         C
All this time
                             Am
I never learned to read your mind (Never learned to read my mind)
                        G
I couldn't turn things around (You never turned things around)
                                F
'Cause you never gave a warning sign (I gave so many signs)
C            Am       G
So many signs, so many signs
                        F
You didn't even see the signs


[Chorus] 
F            G                Am
I think I've seen this film before 
      G
And I didn't like the ending 
F             G           Am
You're not my homeland anymore 
   G                   F
So what am I defending now? 
            G                Am               C
You were my town, now I'm in exile, seein' you out 
F              G                Am
I think I've seen this film before 
                               C
So I'm leaving out the side door
 

[Outro] 
              Am               G
So step right out, there is no amount 
          F
Of crying I can do for you 
         C
All this time 
                             Am
We always walked a very thin line 
                       G
You didn't even hear me out (You didn't even hear me out) 
                         F
You never gave a warning sign (I gave so many signs) 
        C
All this time 
                             Am
I never learned to read your mind (Never learned to read my mind) 
                        G
I couldn't turn things around (You never turned things around) 
                                F
'Cause you never gave a warning sign (I gave so many signs) 
                C                            Am
(So many signs) I never learned to read your mind 
                                      G
(So many signs) I couldn't turn things around (I couldn't turn things around) 
                                F
'Cause you never gave a warning sign (You never gave a warning sign) 
                           C
You never gave a warning sign 
Am  G  F
Ah, ah
