CAPO 3 to match album 

This is a piano song, so you really need to listen to get the chord timing just right.
It is near impossible to find any of her sheet music, so this is one I figured out on my own.

G		  C 		 G	C
 I think about how it might have been

G		  C 		 G	C
 We'd spend our days travelin'

Am	   	       G
 It's not that I don't understand you

Am	   	       G 
 It's not that I don't want to be with you

        Am
But you only wanted me

            C
The way you wanted me


	   G         C       G             C
So, I will head out alone and hope for the best

           G
And we can hang our heads down

     C             G     C
As we skip the goodbyes

            G                       C
And you can tell the world what you want them to hear

         Dm              Am
I've got nothing left to lose, my dear

        Bm                      Fd/D
So, I'm up for the little white lies

            C    D2                   G
But you and I         know the reason why

    C                      G
I'm gone, and you're still there

    C                      G
I'm gone, and you're still there

    C                      G
I'm gone, and you're still there


G		    C 		        G	C
 I'll buy a magazine searching for your face

G		        C 		   G	   C
 From coast to coast or wherever I find my place

Am                     G
 I'll track you on the radio, and

     Am                  Dm
I'll sign your list in a different name

       Am
But as close as I get to you

             C
It's not the same



	   G         C       G             C
So, I will head out alone and hope for the best

   G                             C
We can pat ourselves on the back

                G       C
And say that we tried

       G                  C
And if one of us makes it big

       Dm           Am
We can spill our regrets

    Bm                             Fd/D
And talk about how the love never dies

            C    D2                   G
But you and I         know the reason why

    C                      G
I'm gone, and you're still there

    C                      G
I'm gone, and you're still there

    C                      G
I'm gone, and you're still there




Bm				 Fd/D
 So, steal the show, and do your best

                                Am
To cover the tracks that I have left

                             D7
I wish you well and hope you find

                        Am
Whatever you're looking for

                              D7
The way I might've changed my mind

                           Am    Bm     C    D7
But you only showed me the door




	   G         C       G             C
So, I will head out alone and hope for the best

   G                             C
We can pat ourselves on the back

                G       C
And say that we tried

       G                  C
And if one of us makes it big

       Dm           Am
We can spill our regrets

    Bm                             Fd/D
And talk about how the love never dies

            C    D2 
But you and I                  

        C    Fd/D
You and I--------

        C     D2                       G      C   G  C   G  C   G
You and I             know the reason why
