It’s A Heartache

This is a song from the “soft country rock” genre song of the 70’s, written by Ronnie Scott and Steve Wolfe. Bonnie Tyler recorded it in 1977 and it was a top chart hit that year in the UK and in Canada. For me, this song will forever be associated with the early pangs of love in the middle school years just before starting high school.

It’s a Heartache – Bonnie Tyler

It’s a [C] heartache, nothing but a [Em] heartache

Hits you when it’s [F] too late

Hits you when you’re [C] down [G]

It’s a [C] fool’s game, nothing but a [Em] fool’s game

Standing in the [F] cold rain

Feeling like a [C] clown [G]

It’s a [C] heartache, nothing but a [Em] heartache

Love him till your [F] arms break

Then he lets you [C] down [G]

It ain’t [F] right with love to [G] share

When you [Em] find he doesn’t [Am] care for [G] you

It ain’t [F] wise to need some[G]one

As much as [Em] I depended [Am] on [G] you

It’s a [C] heartache, nothing but a [Em] heartache

Hits you when it’s [F] too late

Hits you when you’re [C] down [G]

It’s a [C] fool’s game, nothing but a [Em] fool’s game

Standing in the [F] cold rain

Feeling like a [C] clown [G]

It’s a [C] heartache, nothing but a [Em] heartache

Love him till your [F] arms break

Then he lets you [C] down [G]

It ain’t [F] right with love to [G] share

When you [Em] find he doesn’t [Am] care for [G] you

It ain’t [F] wise to need some[G]one

As much as [Em] I depended [Am] on [G] you

Oh, it’s a [C] heartache, nothing but a [Em] heartache

Love him till your [F] arms break

Then he lets you [C] down [G]

It’s a [C] fool’s game, nothing but a [Em] fool’s game

Standing in the [F] cold rain

Feeling like a [C] clown [G]

It’s a [C] heartache
