1. I'd tell myself___ You don't mean a thing
 Em
   And what we got___ Got no hold on me
        C
   But when you're not there___ I just crum-ble
  G
   I tell my-self___ I don't care that much
 Em
   But I feel like I'm dy-in'___ Till I feel your touch

        C                                       G
Chorus: On-ly love___ On-ly love can hurt like this
                                  Em
        On-ly love can hurt like this
                                  C
        Must have been a dead-ly kiss
                                  G
        On-ly love can hurt like this


2. Say I would-n't care if you walk a-way
 Em
   But ev'-ry time you're there___ I'm beg-ging you to stay
    C
   When you come close___ I just trem-ble
  G
   And ev'-ry time___ Ev'-ry time you go
 Em
   It's like a knife___ That cuts right through my soul

        C                                       G

        Must have been a dead-ly kiss
                                  G
        On-ly love can hurt like this                         

                                  Em
        On-ly love can hurt like this
                                     C
        Your kis-ses burn-in' to my skin
                                  G
        On-ly love can hurt like this

       Em
 Bridge: But if the sweet-est pain
          C
         Burn-ing hot___ Through my veins
                  D
         Love is tor-ture___ Makes me more sure...
                                   G  |  G  |  Em  |  Em |  C  |  C  |
