Am                 Em
I never told you I don't know why
Dm                  G        'G#
All those years all those lies
Am                    Em

We have a problem you see my dear 'cos I
Dm                  G             'G#
Can't move on and I can't stay here
Am               Em
I gotta fix it I need your tears but
F            G
Mostly now I need your ears see

You were my ruin when you  took hold you
Am                 C
Made me believe in lies you told but
Dm                          G             'G#

Girls never tell you I don't know how but

Sometimes men you a-buse your power
Am                   Em
We are strong and we do rebound but

Bruising tends to break us down so so

The one beat chromatic passing chord (G#) has a dissonant sound as
the organ holds the G-chord throughout the bar.
No doubt Missy held out against more scholarly producers advising
her to change it to a dominant in first inversion (E7/G#).
Also note that this chord in the original key would be B# but it is
doubtful anyone would not refer to it as C.
