6th fret
Capo on 6th fret
This is best played finger style.
Fingerpick the intro:

Gadd9  Gstring, Bsting, Estring
Em7     Astring, Gstring, Bstring(pulloff), Estring
Am7     Low E, G, B, Low E
G/B     Low E, G, B
C2      Low E, D, G, B, D, High E(pinky on low E, 10fr)

(Gadd9)You say (Em7)I only hear what I want to
(Am7) (G/B) (C2)
(Gadd9)And you say(Em7) I talk so all the time-so
(Am7)so (G/B) (C2)

(Am7)And I thought what I (G) felt was simple
(Am7)And I thought that I (G) don't belong
(Am7)And now that (G) I am leaving
(Am7)Now I know (G)that I did something wrong (Cadd9) cause I missed you
(Cm)Yeah, (Am7)I missed you (G) (Am7) (G)

(Gadd9)And you say (Em7)I only hear what I want to
(Am7)I don't listen hard
(G/B)I don't pay attention (Cadd9)to the distance that you're running or (G)to
Anyone, anywhere
(Am7)I don't understand (G/B) if you really care
(Cadd9)I'm only hearing negative, no no no - bad

(Am7)So I turned the radio on (G5) I turned the radio up
(Am7)And this woman was (G5)singing my song
(Am7)The lover's in love (G5)and the other's run away
(Am7)The lover is crying (G5)cause the other won't stay
(Am7)And some of us hover when (G5) we weep for the other (Am7) who
was dying
(G5)Since the day they were born well
(Am7)Well this is not (G5)that
I think that I'm throwing (Am7)but I'm thrown (G5)

(Am)And I thought I'd live forever but now I'm not so sure
You try to (Cadd9)tell me that I'm clever but that won't take me anyhow
(Am7)Or anywhere (G/B)with you (Cadd9)

(Am7)And you said that (G5) I was naive
(Am7)And I thought that I (G5) was strong
(Am7)I thought "hey (G5)I can leave, I can leave"
But (Am7)now I know that (G5)I was wrong cause I(Cadd9) missed you
(Cm)Yeah (Am7)I missed you (G5) (Am7) (G5)

(Am7)You said "you caught me cause you want me
And one day I'll let you go"
You try to (Cadd9)give away a keeper or keep me cause you're know
just too (Am7)scared to (G/B)lose (Cadd9)

And you say, "stay" (G9) (Em7)
(Am7) (G/B0 (C2)

(Intro)You say I only hear what I want to.

Tell me what you think!!!!
