[Intro]

Cadd9 G6 C Em
Cadd9 G6 C Em


[Verse]

Cadd9             G6
I hear the clock, it's six a.m.
C                  Em
I feel so far from where I've been
Cadd9                    G6
I got my eggs.  I got my pancakes too
C                     D
I got my maple syrup, everything but you
Cadd9                     G6
I break the yolks, make a smiley face
C                     Em
I kinda like it in my brand new place
         Cadd9                                   G6
Wipe the spots off of the mirror don't leave the keys in the door
C                            D
I never put my towels on the floor anymore 'cause


[Chorus]

C           D
Dreams last so long
G    D/F          Em
Even after you're gone
C           D
I know that you love me
G        D/F      Em
And soon you will see
C
You were meant for me
    D               Em   Em
And I was meant for you

[Verse]

Cadd9                      G6
I called my momma, she was out for a walk
C                            Em
Consoled a cup of coffee but it didn't wanna talk so I
Cadd9                     G6
Picked up a paper, it was more bad news
C                           D
More hearts being broken or people being used
Cadd9                 G6
Put on my coat in the pouring rain
C                     Em
I saw a movie it just wasn't the same
       Cadd9           G6
'Cause it was happy oh I was sad and
C                   D
It made me miss you oh so bad


[Chorus]

C           D
Dreams last so long
G    D/F          Em
Even after you're gone
C           D
I know that you love me
G        D/F      Em
And soon you will see
C
You were meant for me
    D               Em   Em
And I was meant for you


[Bridge]

C                         D
Go about my business, I'm doing fine
         G               D/F            Em
Besides, what I say if I had you on the line
C                   D
Same old story, not much to say
Em
Hearts are broken every day


[Instrumental]

Cadd9 G6 C Em
Cadd9 G6 C Em


[Verse]

Cadd9                        G6
I brush my teeth and put the cap back on
C                         Em
I know you hate it when I leave the light on
  Cadd9            G6
I pick a book up.  Turn the sheets down.
C                        D
Take a deep breath and a good look around
Cadd9           G6
Put on pj's and hop into bed
    C                     Em
I'm half alive but I feel mostly dead
Cadd9                       G6
I try and tell myself it'll be all right
C                         D
I just shouldn't think anymore tonight


[Chorus]

C           D
Dreams last so long
G    D/F          Em
Even after you're gone
C           D
I know that you love me
G        D/F      Em
And soon you will see
C
You were meant for me
    D               Em   Em
And I was meant for you


[Outro]

C
You were meant for me
    D
and I was meant for
Cadd9   G6   C   Em
You ...............
