    Intro:  Main Riff x1

     

    Verse 1 (w/Main Riff))

    The cars are passing down below
    And all that's left of you is all your clothes
    You left your key the T.V's on
    Our picture's face down by the alarm clock radio

    Em7
    (2)                                                                    Asus4 (2)

    The only thing you ever wanted was for me to be here,
         Cadd9
    (2)                       D11 (2)

    To stay now you've gone away

     

     Chorus:

       G (2)
    I really don't know if it'd make it all better

             D11 (2)                                            Cadd9* (4)
    But I let myself go and put it in a letter to you

        G (2)
    I know I've been stupid and don't have a reason

                D11 (2)                                                  Cadd9* (2)
    But I'm tryin' not to ruin the one thing I believe in,          you

           G/B (3 beats)     (Cadd9*) ( hold for 2 more measures)

    It's killing me,                  killing you

     

    Verse 2 (w/ Main Riff):
    Remember how you drove me mad
    You'd leave your rings and jewelry by the bath
    Waking up the bed sheets gone
    Spend half the night tryin to steal it back

          Em7
    (2)                                                                    Asus4 (2)

    The only thing you ever wanted was for me to be here,

         Cadd9 (2)                       G (2)
    To stay now you've gone away

       Em7 (2)                                                                             Asus4 (2)
    I wish I could pick up the phone and tell you how I'm feeling

                                      Cadd9 (2)                       D (2)
    And tell you how I've changed I'd tell you everything

    Chorus
    (don't hold last Cadd9 chord, just strum one measure)

     

    G/B  (Cadd9*)         G             (D)
                          You're all that I want,

           G/B (Cadd9*)          G             (D)

    (you pleaded)         You're all that I need

        G/B (Cadd9*)  G                   (D)

    (I need   it)          Now that you're gone

    G/B (Cadd9*)    D (4)

                           I see it

     

    Chorus x2 (skip last line first time, hold last chord)
