Breaking Hearts chords

Elton John

Key: 

Gb Ebm7 They used to say that boys are tough as nails. F7 Bbm Ab In every way he keeps his heart as guarded as a jail. Ebm F/Eb Now things have changed, I feel so old. Bb/D Eb Ab Db Like any girl could drag my heart across the coals. Gb Ebm7 I was always there in the thick of things. F7 Bbm Ab I always had the heart of every woman on a string. Ebm F/Eb The danger zone shone from my eyes. Bb/D Eb Ab Db It seemed like every inch I gained became a mile.
A7 B/A A7 D D It's not the night reaching in and touching me. G Gm It's just that breaking hearts ain't what it used to be. D B7 It seems that time has killed that cruel streak in me - Em7 G/A A and breaking hearts ain't what it used to be G/A A7/C# D D It's not the light shining in and catching me. G Gm It's just that breaking hearts ain't what it used to be. D B7 But time has come and cast a spell on me. Em7 A7 D And breaking hearts ain't what it used to be.
Now I know what lonely means. I used to give so little and gain everything. The darkest part of every day - is the shadow of another girl as she turns and walks away. Can't say I blame them all for being hurt. After all, I treated each and every one like dirt. Who wants a heart that's never home? I face the facts and lock myself into a life alone. Em7 F#7 Bm CODA: Breaking hearts. Breaking hearts. Breaking hearts. E7 Em7 A7 D Breaking hearts - ain't what it used to be.
