[Intro]

Am  Dm  G  C(straight to)Em
Am  Dm  G  C(straight to)Em


[Verse 1]

Am               Cadd9                   Dm7
Same bed, but it feels just a little bit bigger now
G                                   Cadd9        Em
Our song on the radio, but it don't sound the same
Am                    Cadd9                         Dm7
When our friends talk about you all it does is just tear me down
G                                     Cadd9
Cause my heart breaks a little when I hear your name


           Em          Am              Em 
It all just sounds like ooh, ooh, oooh, oooh
Bb                            Cadd9   
Mmm too young, too dumb to realize


[Chorus]

    G                       F     G               Cadd9
That I should've bought you flowers and held your hand
                       F     G               Cadd9
Shoulda gave you all my hours when I had the chance
                  F                   G                Am    
Take you to every party cause all you wanted to do was dance
G             F                  Fm                   Cadd9      Em
Now my baby's dancing, but she's dancing with another man


[Verse 2]

Am           Cadd9             Dm
My pride, my ego, my needs and selfish ways
G                                      Cadd9       Em
Caused a good strong woman like you to walk out my life
         Am     Cadd9                     Dm
Now I'll never, never get to clean up the mess I made ooh
G                               Cadd9
And that haunts me every time I close my eyes


           Em          Am              Em 
It all just sounds like ooh, ooh, oooh, oooh
Bb                            Cadd9   
Mmm too young, too dumb to realize


[Chorus]

    G                       F     G               Cadd9
That I should've bought you flowers and held your hand
                       F     G               Cadd9
Shoulda gave you all my hours when I had the chance
                  F                   G                Am    
Take you to every party cause all you wanted to do was dance
G             F                  Fm                   Cadd9     Em
Now my baby's dancing, but she's dancing with another man


[Bridge]

            F                 G                        C G Am Em
Although it hurts I'll be the first to say that I was wrong
      G
Oh, I know I'm probably much too late
           Dm
To try and apologize for my mistakes
           G
But I just want you to know


[Chorus]
 
                   F      G                      Cadd9
I hope he buys you flowers, I hope he holds your hand
                 F    G            Cadd9
Give you all his hours when he has the chance
                  F             G                     Am    
Take you to every party cause I remember how much you love to dance
G                  F             Fm                Cadd9              
Do all the things I should've done when I was your man
G                  F             Fm                Cadd9
Do all the things I should've done when I was your man
