[Intro]: G D  A Bm  G D  A

             G               D
I put on my make up, spray my perfume
             A                 Bm
Sat on the front porch, waitin' on you
               G                 D            A
Said we would catch up cause it had been a while
             G                  D
I hate to admit it, but my hands are shaking
         A             Bm
Barely breathing, heart is racing
            G                D                  A
Looks like feelings don't always change their mind

     G                 D   
But you never called, never showed up
       A              Bm
Guess somethings never change
     G               D                    A
And just like living in a flashback, you let me down again

                    G               D
And that's why the past should be the past
 A                   Bm
Far behind, back of mind, out of the way
         G               D
Let the memories burn and crash
       A                                  D/F#
Cause sittin' here looking at the driveway
         G              D
Is just tearin' my heart back in half
      A                      Bm
Like nothing's changed except the time that's passed
      G                  D               A             G D  A
And that's why goodbye should mean goodbye, the first time

               G                   D
I should know better, I hate that I still cry
                A                  Bm
Looking like a fool here watching for headlights
     G              D                        A
And kicking myself for believin' in you again
                      G            D
Oh I bet you're out drinking with a new blonde
             A                     Bm
And telling her whatever's playing is her song
          G            D                    A
Yeah and helping her up into your Chevy instead

G              D
Even when you don't have me
          A               Bm
You can still be the one to hurt me
    G              D
It must feel good to know
                A
That I'm still holdin' on to letting go

                    G               D
And that's why the past should be the past
 A                   Bm
Far behind, back of mind, out of the way
         G               D
Let the memories burn and crash
       A                                  D/F#
Cause sittin' here looking at the driveway
         G              D
Is just tearin' my heart back in half
      A                      Bm
Like nothing's changed except the time that's passed
      G                  D               A
And that's why goodbye should mean goodbye, the first time

[Interlude]: G D  A Bm  G D  A

                     G               D
Yeah that's why the past should be the past
 A                   Bm
Far behind, back of mind, out of the way
         G            D
Let the memories burn and crash
       A                                   D/F#
Cause sittin' here looking at this driveway
          G             D
Is just tearin' my heart back in half
      A                      Bm
Like nothing's changed except the time that's passed
      G                  D               A
And that's why goodbye should mean goodbye
            G                  D                     A               G D  A
So now I'm letting you go, just like I should have tried, the first time
Bm             G D      A
Oh, the first time, oh yeah
                     G               D        A Bm            G D   A
Yeah that's why the past should be the past, oooh, the first time, yeah
