INTRO:

Am, D, G11, Gmaj


 
VERSE:

              Am
She's cutting out the bruises

F              Gmaj             Am
Forgetting her excuses for being here again

        F                  C      Gmaj     Am     
With a suitcase packed and waiting by the door

In her head

 F                     Gmaj
Convinced herself she hasn't lost

Am
Enough to quit

     F                    Am      
But tonight she lays here thinking



PRE-CHORUS:

Gmaj    F
What if I just left

G11     Gmaj  Em   F
In the middle of the night

Gmaj     Gmaj
Back to California

G11 (Just bottom 3 strings)
And never look back



CHORUS:

Am           F
She'll fantasize about it

Gmaj         G                F
Every single day but she can't find it

        G            Am
In her heart to run away

    C
And no one's listening

Am            F
With Northern Massachusetts

C               G
On his knees to stay

He's begging

F                 G              Am
"Please, oh baby please, I can explain

                   F    G
It won't happen agaaaaaain"



VERSE:

             Am
He's putting out the fires

           F         C
And he's making her believe

Gmaj         Am
He's really changed

This time

           F         Gmaj          Am
But it's obvious it's just another line

Lapse and relapse

        F                 C    Gmaj  
And again she lays beside him thinking:



PRE-CHORUS:

F       Gmaj         G11  Gmaj Em F
I'll pretend in the middle of the night

Gmaj                    Gmaj
My eyes are closed I'm sleeping


G11 (Just bottom 3 strings)
But I won't come back



CHORUS:

Am           F
She'll fantasize about it

Gmaj          G                        F
Every single day but she can't find it

        G               Am
In her heart to run away

     C
And no one's listening

Am             F
With Northern Massachusetts

C                G
On his knees to stay

He's begging

F                G                Am
"Please, oh baby please, I can explain

                    Am          Gmaj
It won't happen agaaaaaain

                    F           Gmaj
It won't happen again



BRIDGE:

Am
   How long can this last?

G#m#5
  The final straw was the hospital

F
   At least she told herself that

Gmaj
But she just can't find the strength to end it!



PRE-CHORUS:

F      Gmaj
I just left

G11      Gmaj  Em   F
In the middle of the night

Gmaj     Gmaj
Back to California

G11 (Just bottom 3 strings)
I'll never look back



FINAL CHORUS:

Am           F
She'll fantasize about it

Gmaj          G                        F
Every single day but she can't find it

        G             Am
In her heart to run away

     C
And no one's listening

Am             F
With Northern Massachusetts

C                G
On his knees to stay

He's begging

F                G                Am
"Please, oh baby please, I can explain

C                     Am   (SOLO)      
It won't happen agaaain

Am           F
She'll fantasize about it

Gmaj         G                 F
Every single day but she can't find it

        G             Am
In her heart to run away

     C
And no one's listening

Am             F
With Northern Massachusetts

C                G
On his knees to stay

He's begging

F                G               Am       Am
"Please, oh baby please, I can explain

Yeah, I tabbed this out before he played this song live, and after watching live performances it still looks accurate aside from the very beginning four chords (he plays these further down the neck of the guitar, I just havent taken the time to figure out the chord shapes)
