[Intro]

G C G C 


[Verse 1]

         G
I won't hold my tongue. 
                     C
I'm not okay without you here. 
                G
I guess what's done is done. 
                               C
I just feel so exposed without you near.


[Break]

Am                                C
   And I won't say that I'm okay, 
Am
   'Cause you taught me not to lie, 
                                   C   D
So know that I'll miss you everyday.


[Pre-Chorus]

            G
You always taught me to be good, 

And always do my best to be selfless 
       C
But I know that God is holding you 

And I am so damn jealous, 
         Am
'Cause I miss your arms around me 

And the way you make me laugh. 
         D
Now I'm stuck inside this prison that says 

You're never coming back. 


[Chorus]

         G
So I'm sitting in my room 

As I try to write this song. 
        C
I'm so sorry that it's not good enough. 

It's just that everything seems wrong,
           Am
And I keep bursting into tears 

Because the pain won't go away, 
             D
Because the father took my best friend 

And said she cannot come out to play
         G   C   G   C
Anymore.


[Refrain]

         G
I won't hold my tongue. 
                     C
I'm not okay without you here.
         G
I won't hold my tongue. 
                     C
I'm not okay without you here.
         G
I won't hold my tongue. 
                     C
I'm not okay without you here.


[Verse 2]

                G
I guess what's done is done. 
                               C
I just feel so exposed without you near.


[Break]

Am                                C
   And I won't say that I'm okay, 
Am
   'Cause you taught me not to lie, 
                                    C   D
So know that I'll miss you everyday.


[Pre-Chorus]

            G
You always taught me to be good, 

And always do my best to be selfless 
       C
But I know that God is holding you 

And I am so damn jealous, 
         Am
'Cause I miss your arms around me 

And the way you make me laugh. 
             D
And now I'm stuck inside this prison that says 

You're never coming back. 


[Chorus]

             G
And now I'm sitting in my room 

As I try to write this song. 
        C
I'm so sorry that it's not good enough. 

It's just that everything seems wrong,
           Am
But I will try my best to be good

So I can pay my way, 
           D
Straight through the pearly gates 
          
Into your arms so we can play
      G
Once more.


[Outro]

(play G C over and over until end)

G
Grandma, Uh, I love God with all my heart 
    C
And uh, The only reason that isn't 
                                   G
Stated in my life is because of you

And I really don't understand it God

That you introduced me to 
                                
What would take you away so fast
    C
When you were the only person

That ever understood a thing I ever said

And I really don't understand 
                              G
How to deal with this anymore
   
And, I'm just really not okay with this
   C
And I miss you and I understand you're in heaven
                              G
But I don't want to be selfish 

I don't want you to be in heaven

I want you to be back down here

I don't want you to be there
                      C
I want you to be here

What am I supposed to do now
                      G C G C  fade out...
That's all I'm asking

It sounds more accurate to the recording with capo on 6. so in the tab G=D C=G D=A and Am=Em

I play with the capo on the third fret. But other than that I find this to sound just like the song <3

I just wanted to put up a version that used the capo with chords that were easily recognized and played by a beginner. If anyone wants to place the capo on some other fret that is easily done... And then transpose the chords accordingly.... This chart may help to do that:
