[Intro]
G Cadd9 G D x2


[Verse]
       G
I'd be glad to give back
Cadd9 G       D
All I've ever owned
               G
If I could've seen into the future
   Cadd9 G      D
If only I had known
             G
Behind these walls of separation
        Cadd9  G        D
I have learned to live alone


[Chorus]
      Em
But I want you
  C        G
I want you back


[Verse]
        G
I could clearly see the letters
            Cadd9   G      D
But not the writing on the wall
      G
About what had come between us
    Cadd9   G      D
And how the mighty fall
    G
But one thing keeps repeating
         Cadd9 G     D
It's the only thing I know


[Chorus]
       Em
That I want you
  C        G
I want you back
       Em
Yeah I want you
  C        G
I want you back


[Bridge]
          Cadd9    G
Well I've taken that number
          D          G
How could I have been so blind
        Cadd9          G
Now I'm coming up from under
     D
It's you I'll have to find
   Cadd9     G
My back is up against the ropes
     D            G
Only one way I can go
      Gm   Am7
And I want you


[Solo]
G Cadd9 G D Em C G


[Verse]
    G
How far is the distance
         Cadd9  G        D
Have you gone beyond the signs
         G
Have you passed the point of no return
Cadd9     G           D
Have you crossed that line
       G
And it burns me like a fever
        Cadd9   G      D
I gotta tell you one last time


[Chorus]
       Em
That I want you
  C        G
I want you back
       Em
Yeah I want you
  C        G
I want you back
       Em
Yeah I want you
  C        G
I want you back
       Em
Yeah I want you
  C        G
I want you back
