     Gsus4    G         Gsus4    G
This can't continue, It makes no sense
      Fsus4   F             Fsus4       F
We're getting nowhere, I've lost all my confidence
    Gsus4     G              Gsus4 G
The boy wants something, I'm satisfied
   Fsus4   F           Fsus4    F
He needs attention and care our love can't provide

G

    Gm                          Ebmaj7
And then there's the matter of us...

[verse pattern]
Gm                       F                
I'd like to prove that I don't think that 
                Ebmaj7       F Fsus4 F
you've seen the best of me
           Gm                 
I've stood up for the boy and 
     D                          D D  G G D D G G
I've clung to the hopes and the lies
  Gm                         F    
I wish that the pain in your gaze 
                 Ebmaj7      F Fsus4 F
Could again be a test of me
           Gm                 D   
But when I look in the mirror,    
                 G  C  D  G
I believe my own eyes

[chorus pattern]
    C        D   G      C  D  G
I believe my own eyes,
          C           Em
Know I've come to the end
       D           C
All my patience is gone
         C          C  
When I'm doubtful I tend
     G                
To believe my own eyes...

[repeat verse pattern]
I'd like to declare this devotion and 
Care is the life to live
That nothing has changed and that 
Time isn't passing us by
But I have to say here that for us 
There's a clear-cut alternative
When we look at each other, we believe our own eyes

[repeat chorus]

[break]
Gm Gm Fsus4 F Fsus4 F

E  E  Bsus4 B

         E         A     B    E   A B
This has gone far enough
      Cm             B  E     Cm  B E
After all we've been through
            C       
We can't be blamed, 
                      D        G    C  D   G
We've done all we can humanly do
         E         A     B    E   A B
It's a time to be tough
      Cm             B  E     Cm  B E
A time to be wise
             C                    
We must stop chasing false dreams 
      D         G    C  D   G
and recover our lives

[chorus]
I believe my own eyes,
Know I've come to the end
All my patience is gone
When I'm doubtful I tend
To believe my own eyes...

[verse pattern]
I'd like to believe that I don't feel that we've seen the best of us
And the way to believe is to see where the real future lies
I hope that the pain in your gaze can again be a test of us
But when I look in the mirror, I believe my own eyes

[chorus]
Let's believe our own eyes
Know we've come to the end
All our patience is gone
Let's admit we intend 
To believe our own eyes
