Verse 1

E           C#m                G#m
 Just when I had you off my head
     G                     D                C#m        F#m
Your voice comes thrashing wildly through my quiet bed
E           C#m            G#m 
 You say you wanna try again
    D                         A      E 
But I've tried everything but giving in


Pre-Chorus

F#m B 
    Why you wanna break my heart again
F#m B
    Why am I gonna let you try


Chorus

     E            C#m           F#m 
When all we ever do is say goodbye
   B            A              E
Oh all we ever do is say goodbye
E                     C#m
All we ever do is say goodbye
   B            A              E
Oh all we ever do is say goodbye


Verse 2

E           C#m            G#m              
 I bought a ticket on a plane
    G              D              C#m         A
And by the time it landed you had gone again
E             C#m                G#m
 I love you more than songs can say
    D                          A       E
But I can't keep running after yesterday


Pre-Chorus

Hey! just wanna say two things...great tab first of all!
just one thing, in the first verse, that last chord that he slides to at the end of the following lines, its F minor, not A.
Otherwise awesome!! thanks buddy!

E C#m G#m

Good effort indeed. Just have some minor corrections. In the bridge try a Dsus2 instead of an A

Dsus2
We say goodbye

We say goodbye

We say goodbye

I think it sounds a bit better than a double A

Also at the end when Mayer sings

All we ever do is say goodbye

try a Bm instead of a B ("oh all...) one or two times which fits with his voice if you listen closely

Minor corrections, still a very adequate tab, well done!

I want to post or [tab]
