(No Guitar)             (Verse riff)
it can come from out of nowhere
hit you when you're safe and warm
take it easy my star
your time is gonna come
your time is gonna come

yeah you got those crazy blue eyes
you got those crazy blues
all those pretty smiles
i can see them laughing at you
your time is gonna come
your time is gonna come

C             D    
i don't wanna be your punching bag
E                  B 
Your complaisant little princess all tragic and sad
C (arpeggioed)D
I'm not gonna let you overwhelm me anymore

(verse riff through 2nd verse)
yeah you say you got this bad thing
you say you got it bad
you have broken every heart
of every friend you've ever had
some day the time will come
when all your friends will go away

i wonder why i stick around
sometimes i wish you would leave
you say you'll love me forever
then you spit on me
your time is gonna come
i swear your time is gonna come

C                D 
oh i don't wanna be your whipping boy
E                 B 
your happy little loser someone you can ignore
C (arpeggioed)D
i'm not gonna let you overwhelm me anymore

D            E 
someday some somebody's gonna come
B

will not let you hurt me anymore
will not let you twist me anymore
will not let you turn me inside out
