[Riff 1] x1 /w lyrics:
                                             [hit xtra F cymbal crashes]
Suddenly you were gone from all the lives you left your mark upon.

[Riff 2] x4 /w lyrics:

I remember -
how we talked and drank into the misty dawn. I hear the voices.
We ran by the water on the wet summer lawn. I see the footprints.
I remember...

[Riff 3] x1 /w lyrics:

I feel the way you would. ([Riff 4a] x1)

[Riff 3] x1 /w lyrics:

[Riff 3] x1 /w lyrics:

I feel, I feel the way you would. ([Riff 5] x1)

[Riff 6] x1 /w lyrics:

Tried to believe but you know it's no good.
This is something that just can't be understood.

[Riff 2] x4 /w lyrics:

I remember -
the shouts of joy skiing fast through the woods. I hear the echoes.
I learned your love for life. I feel the way that you would. I feel your
presence. I remember...

[Riff 3] x1 /w lyrics:

I feel the way you would. ([Riff 4a] x1)

Keyboard arr. for guitar:

This is a little sloppy but the keyboard plays each chord on the beat.

        The noise you hear in the background is a keyboard. The guitar
strikes all notes with an asterisk.
