Goodbye, my almost lover

Goodbye, my hopeless dream

I should've known you'd bring me heartache

Am                   G
I cannot go to the ocean
                              F
I cannot drive the streets at night
                           Em
I cannot wake up in the morning
                        Am
Without you on my mind
                           G
So you're gone and I'm haunted
                       F
And I bet you are just fine
                      Dm
Did I make it that easy
                               G
To walk right in and out of my life?
