[Intro]
G  C  2x


[Verse]
G                                  C
We both lie silently still, in the dead of the night.
            G
Although we both lie close together,
        C
we feel miles apart inside.
       G                    C
Was it something I said, or something I did,
       G                  C
did my words not come out right?
         D                               C
Though I tried not to hurt you, though I tried,

but I guess that's why they say


[Chorus]
G                  C
Every rose has its thorn.
          G                   C
Just like every night has its dawn.
          G     D              C        G
Just like every cowboy sings a sad, sad song.
                   C~
Every rose has its thorn.


[Interlude]
G  C  2x


[Verse]
G                                            C
Listen to our favourite song, playing on the radio.
         G                                    C
Well the DJ says loves a game of easy come and easy go.
      G            C               G              C
But I wonder, does he know, has he ever felt like this.
       D                                    C
Well I know that you'd be here right now if I

coulda let you know somehow, I guess


[Chorus]
G                  C
Every rose has its thorn.
          G                   C
Just like every night has its dawn.
          G     D              C        G
Just like every cowboy sings a sad, sad song.
                   C~
Every rose has its thorn.


[Bridge]
Em                D
Though it's been awhile now,
       C                 G
I can still feel so much pain.
Em                D                    C
Like a knife that cuts you the wound heals,
                          G
but the scar, that scar remains


[Solo]
G  C
G  C
Em  D  C
Em  D  C  Em~


[Interlude]
G  C
G  C


[Verse]
G                                            C
I know I coulda saved our love that night if I'd
                  G
known what to say.

Instead of making love
        C
we both made our separate ways.
          G                     C
And now I hear you've found somebody new,
    G                       C
and that I never meant that much to you.
   D
To hear that tears me up inside,
       C
and to see you cuts me like a knife, I guess


[Chorus]
G                  C
Every rose has its thorn.
          G                   C
Just like every night has its dawn.
          G     D              C        G
Just like every cowboy sings a sad, sad song.
                   C~  G~
Every rose has its thorn.
