          D           Bm                  G          D  [Guitar Figure 1]
There's a stain on my notebook where your coffee cup was
            D          Bm              G          D   [Guitar Figure 1]
And there's ash in the pages, now I've got myself lost
      D          Bm               G          D    [Guitar Figure 1]
I was writing to tell you that my feelings tonight
      D           Bm            G             D   [Guitar Figure 1]
Are a stain on my notebook that rings your goodbye.

    Bm                      F#
Oh, now she's gone, and I'm back on the beat
  C#m                       A
A stain on my notebook says nothing to me.
    D                      G                             A
Oh, now she's gone and I'm out with a friend (out with a friend)
    (A)                   G               D
With lips full of passion   and coffee in bed

VERSE2:
         D            Bm              G         D   [Guitar Figure 1]
With the way that you left me I could hardly contain
    D            Bm            G          D   [Guitar Figure 1]
The hurt and the anger and the joy of the pain
    D            Bm                 G          D   [Guitar Figure 1]
Now knowing I am single there'll be fire in my eyes
      D           Bm             G          D    [Guitar Figure 1]
And a stain on my notebook for a new love tonight


[repeat CHORUS]


[play Guitar Figure 1]  [x2]


[Guitar SOLO over:  Eb  F  G  A]

Notes:
In the F section, the [ ] is a triple hammer-on played on the second beat.
But, on the 3rd beat, you're already playing the F-note on the 3rd string.
I can't show it any other way without making it look sillier than it probably
already is.

and I'm out with a friend (out with a friend)

    (A)                   G               D
With lips full of passion   and coffee in bed


[play Guitar Figure 1]  [x2]


VERSE3:
      D           Bm             G           D
From lips without passion to the lips with a kiss
        D               Bm             G    D
There's nothing of your love that I'll ever miss
     D          Bm               G          D
The stain on my notebook remains all that's left
       D         Bm              G         D
Of the memory of late nights and coffee in bed
       D         Bm              G         D
Of the memory of late nights and coffee in bed


[repeat CHORUS1 and ad lib bits from VERSE1 to fade]

"A stain on my notebook..."
"With lips full of passion..."

etc. etc.
