Verse

Guitar I & Guitar II - strumming
Orchestration

   D                   D
If you, if you could return
             A6/A
don't let it burn
             A6/A
don't let it fade
                 C/C~
I'm sure I'm happier
                       C/C~
but it's just your attitude
                 G
it's tearing me apart
                  G
it's ruining everyday
    D                       A6/A
I swore, I swore I would be true
                 A6/A
but honey so did you
                            C/C~
so why were you holding her hand
                   C/C~
is that the way we stand
                       G
were you lying all the time
                      G
was it just a game to you
           
Chorus 
------
[chord progression: D A6/A C/C~ G (same as verse)]          

           D
But I miss you
                    A6       A
you know I'm such a fool for you
                               C/C~
you got me wrapped around your finger
                      G
do you have to let it linger
       G
do you have to
       G
do you have to
       G              D
do you have to let it linger

Verse
-----
Guitar I - single chord strums with tremelo/echo effect
Guitar II - strumming

Oh, I thought I loved you
I thought that nothing could go wrong
but I was wrong
I was wrong

If you, if you could get by
trying not to lie
things wouldn't be so confused
and I wouldn't feel so used
but you always ruin you
I just wanna be with you

Chorus
------
and I miss you
you know I'm such a fool for you
you got me wrapped around your finger
do you have to let it linger
do you have to
do you have to
do you have to let it linger

[Slide guitar]

and I miss you
you know I'm such a fool for you
you got me wrapped around your finger
do you have to let it linger
do you have to
do you have to
do you have to let it linger

you know I'm such a fool for you
you got me wrapped around your finger
do you have to let it linger
do you have to
do you have to
do you have to let it linger

for the lyric "I miss you" it's actually "But I'm in so deep". Just a side note. Good tab though.
