Intro 

(1) I came back to get my things 
thank you for getting the door 
but I don't feel right walking in no more... 

(1) It's quiet, I'm cold 
I did my crying at home 
and I'm numb now 
I'm numb now 

(2) Before I'm on my way 
I've one more thing to ask 
(3) Was it worth the price you paid 
for my never coming back? 

(4a) Why did you mess with forever? 
Such a long time 
to be unkind 
Why did you mess with forever? 

(1) Don't you call me cruel 
cruel is what you're making me do 
I stick to my rules 
I'm at odds with me now 
Do I look my love in the eyes and say goodbye 

(2) Before I'm on my way 
I've one more thing to ask 
(3) Was it worth the price you paid 
for my never coming back 

(4b) Why did you mess with forever? 
What a long time 
to be unkind 
Why did you mess with forever? 

(5) You ask to kiss me once goodbye 
but you already did with somebody else's lips 

(Intro) 

(6) Tell the tiny chemicals 
the ones you hold responsible 
they lost me 
you lost me 
Now everything inside me tells me I sould run to you 
and throw my arms around you 
Hold your steaming crying cheeks against my own 
and tell you nothing's wrong 

(7) But wrong is what you were when you forgot 
that we were going on 
that we were going on 
that we were going strong 

(4c) Tell me why did you mess with forever? 
What a long time 
to be unkind 
Tell me why did you mess with forever? (8)

to me it seems that the 8708 in the intro and everywhere else should be 5756, this allows you to keep the same finger placement just on different strings allowing for faster switches

He plays Bm this way: (7x777x) and Cm(8x888x)
So it's easier to do this part:

e---3---x---5---3------------------
b---3---7---6---3----8--8---8--8---
g---0---7---5---5----8--0---8--0---
d---0---7---7---5----8--7---8--7---
a---x---x---5---3----x--8---x--8---
e---3---7---x---x----8------8------
