okay so i'm tabbing this song in the drop D version that i made. i don't think a
drop D version has ever been made before? but it sounds pretty good so yeahhh check it out.

The chords used in the song are in chromatic order:
  Am   B5?  C     Dm   Em   F    G

Goodbye, my almost lover

Goodbye, my hopeless dream

Can't you just let me be?

So long, my luckless romance

My back is turned on you
Dm
I should've known you'd bring me heartache

Am                   G
I cannot go to the ocean
                              F
I cannot drive the streets at night
                           Em
I cannot wake up in the morning
                        Am
Without you on my mind
                           G
So you're gone and I'm haunted
                       F
And I bet you are just fine
                      Dm
Did I make it that easy
                               G
To walk right in and out of my life?
