Verse 1:
G                                  Cadd9          
We both lie silently still in the dead of the night
             G                               Cadd9
Although we both lie close together we feel miles apart inside
       G                   Cadd9
Was it something I said or something I did,
         G                Cadd9
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 1:
G                  Cadd9
Every rose has its thorn
          G                   Cadd9
Just like every night has its dawn
          G     D              Cadd9
Just like every cowboy sings a sad, sad song
G                  Cadd9 (strum once)
Every rose has its thorn
(Yeah it does)

Instrumental:
G | Cadd9 | G | Cadd9 

Verse 2:
G                                            Cadd9
I listen to our favorite song playing on the radio
         G                                    Cadd9
Hear the DJ say love's a game of easy come and easy go
       G               Cadd9          G              Cadd9
But I wonder: "Does he know?" "Has he ever felt like this?"
      D                                     
And I know that you'd be here right now
   Cadd9 
If I could have let you know somehow I guess

Chorus 2:
G                  Cadd9
Every rose has its thorn
          G                   Cadd9
Just like every night has its dawn
          G     D              Cadd9
Just like every cowboy sings a sad, sad song
G                  Cadd9 (strum once)
Every rose has its thorn

Bridge:
Em                  D               Cadd9              G     G/F# 
Though it's been a while now, I can still feel so much pain
Em                D                      Cadd9                        G
Like a knife that cuts you the wound heals, but the scar, that scar remains

Instrumental:
G   Cadd9   G     Cadd9
Em  D       Cadd9 G  
Em  D       Cadd9 Cadd9 (stop)
G   Cadd9   G     Cadd9

Verse 3:
G                                                   Cadd9
I know I could have saved our love that night if I'd     known what to say
G                      Cadd9
Instead of making love we both made our separate ways
            G               Cadd9          G                   Cadd9
And now I hear you found somebody new, and that I never meant that much to you
   D                                    Cadd9
To hear that tears me up inside, and to see you cuts me like a knife I guess

Chorus 3:
G                  Cadd9
Every rose has its thorn
          G                   Cadd9
Just like every night has its dawn
          G     D              Cadd9
Just like every cowboy sings a sad, sad song
G                  Cadd9 (strum once)
Every rose has its thorn
G
