Intro: Bass G---D


Verse 1:
    G
i'm throwing away pictures
that i never should have
             D 
taken in the first place
         G
and it's cold in my apartment
as i'm changing all the colors
         D                      A
from the brightest reds to grays


Refrain 2:
          Bm
well it's 3 o'clock
on monday morning
G
i'm just hoping you're
           D       A
not seeing his face
          Bm
i've been getting calls
in these hotel rooms
G
long enough to know

that it was him
                  A
that took my place


Chorus 1:
and i hope this makes
    D
you happy now

as even broken hearts
may have their doubts

and i'm burning 
all the letters
hoping that i might forget

that she left when 
she was leaving me
a life of barely breathing

and we changed key
    G
you changed yourself 
and i changed me
  D
i really didn't see us
        A
singing through this
          Bm
then you screamed the
bridge and i
cried the verse
        G   
and our chorus came
out unrehearsed
         D
and you smiled the 
whole way through it
        A
i guess maybe that's
what's worse


(Repeat Chorus 1)


Chorus 2:
and i'm taking all your
Bm
memories off the shelf
and i don't need
       G
you or anybody else
                  D
so take a look at me
see what you want to see
                 A
when you get home


Bridge:
Bm
take me home
i'd rather die
             G
than be with you
take me home
you have a problem

with the truth
take me home
because this happens
      A
every time
i knew it would...
i knew it would...

Verse 1:
D                             A           Bm
Katie don't cry I know you're trying your hardest
	        A               D
And the hardest part is letting go
Of the nights we shared
 A        Bm                       A
Ocala is calling and you know it's haunting
       G             A
but compared to your eyes
        Bm              D
nothing shines quite as bright
            G              A
And when we looked to the sky
         Bm         D
It’s not mine but I want it So...


Chorus:
D
  Let’s not pretend like
you're alone tonight
   A
(I know he's there and)
Bm
  You’re probably hanging
        A
out and making eyes
(While across the room he stares)
G
  I'll bet he gets the
         A
nerve to walk the floor
    F#/Bb          Bm		   A
And ask my girl to dance she'll say yes
               G
(Because these words were
      D          A
never easier for me to say or
F#/Bb         Bm        A
Her to second-guess but I guess)
     Em             D
That I can live without you but
     G           A            D
(Without I'll be miserable at best)


Verse 2:
D
  You’re all that I hoped I'd find
	        Bm
In every single way
                       A
And everything I would give
                           D
Is everything you couldn't take
                         A
Cause nothing feels like home
                         Bm
You’re a thousand miles away
                        A
And the hardest part of living
                           G
Is just taking breaths to stay
                          A
Cause I know I'm good for something
       F#/Bb       	Bm
I just haven't found it yet
      A
And I need it so...

Intro: Bm-D-G-A x2 G-A

Verse 1:
Bm(hold)
  Well this hurts me more
than I can stand to say
                   D
In just one sitting you
left the room so
        A
I could pray
Bm
  So I'll pace the
halls to see
If I could find a
hole in something
D
  Or maybe places
     A
to escape


Refrain 1:
Oh and everybody
G          A      Bm
knows this is the part
Of breaking down
   G  A      Bm
in anybody's arms
I'm reaching down and
G      A          Bm
hoping this one's ours
    A
God please let this take


Chorus 1:

too long since I've heard you sing"


Interlude: G-A-


Verse 2:
Bm(hold)
  And you got here
just in time
To let me know I was
worth saving
D
  It's nothing more than
        A
for the hearts
Bm
  Too proud to breathe
But I'm too scared to say
the things worth saying
D
  Who knew this trip
              A
would be this hard?


Refrain 2:
As I'm looking to the
 G     A          Bm
sky to count the stars
                G
I wonder if you see
     A         Bm
them where you are
I'm tied above my
G         A      Bm
knees and pray tomorrow
         A
grace no pay


(Repeat Chorus 1)


Chorus 2:
         Bm             D
And yeah we all fall to pieces
       G                 A
But at least you fell to me
              Bm
But this is a wrong way
D                            G A
Tell me goodnight and let it go


Bridge:
G 
I stand here and
A
you just pray
   Bm
My life will flee
And I'd say safe

I'm a priset mess

Verse 1: Do intro riff
       G
And we said it would be funny
to keep me hanging in suspense
         C9
Then I'd run over to your house
and I'd scale the chainlink fence
     Em7
That borders your back yard and
then I'd climb through your window
        C9
And I'd whisper that I love you
as you fall out of your clothes
         G
And we'd lay there in the
darkness like the dream of you I had
         C9
Where we captured all the
fireflies and knew what time we had
         Em7
Could be counted on our fingertips
that almost made you cry
    C9
You let me hold you tightly
as we said all our goodbyes


Refrain 1:
C9                      Em7
  May I say I loved you more
C9                      Em7
  May I say I loved you more


Interlude: C9


Verse 2:
       G
And it must of been and hour
that I clutched you in my arms
      C9
And I must have said the right
things because you instantly felt warm
        Em7
And you heard my heart stop
beating and you wanted not to cry
        C9
As your sympathetic whispers
they told a tale of bad goodbyes
         G
And You swore you saw me laughing
and I swore I saw you smile
         C9
And this time we've spent together
was meant to last us quite a while
     Em7
As I take this piece of you with
me I'll carry to my grave
C9
Knowing that for someone you're
an angel sent to save


Refrain 2:
(Keep Breathing my angel
if you go down I go with you)
C9                      Em7
  May I saw I loved you more
(Keep Breathing
Just Keep Breathing)
(Keep Breathing my angel
if you go down I go with you)
C9                      Em7
  May I saw I loved you more
(Keep Breathing
Just Keep Breathing)

  Let's drink to
memories we shared

the hopes and cares

  Here's too for being
unaware that you're gone
Em7
  Because before too
long you'll be a memory

I thought with a month of apart

Together would find us an opening
                                 E

Or break down the door to your heart

Forever could see us not you and me
