Intro (0:00)

F#m



Verse (0:07)

F#m
It's not that I don't love you
Or are tired of your ways
               E
I want you to know

       F#m
That's I'm always thinking of you
You know I'd take you with me
           E
Wherever I go



Verse (0:36)

       F#m
But I catch myself in the mirror
                                              E
And I remember I gotta do something about my life
          F#m
For I'm as empty as the clothes that I laid
                                  E
Crumpled where they fell to the floor



Verse (1:04)

        F#m
I'm as empty as the ten green bottles
                                    E
Hanging in my mind from the night before
       F#m
And an ashtray full of moments
                                              E
Spent thinking about the things I should have done



Chorus (1:30)

                          F#m
I say goodbye to another old friend
                                   E
Yeah they stayed through thick and thin
                              F#m
Through the laughter and the tears
                              E
Through every state that I've been in

                            F#m
And I know they don't wanna hurt me
                           E
But I can see it in their eyes
                         F#m
That they're killing me so gently
                     E
How can I ever say goodbye



Verse (2:26)
 
        F#m
For as young me we clattered through these streets
                           E
And how we hit this town running
    F#m
And we were so sure of being us
                                            E
We flattened everything that stood in our path
      F#m
Now I wake up and I have to find myself
                                             E
Through all the shit that once told me who I was



Chorus (3:04)

                         F#m
I say goodbye to so many old friends
                          E
Here I left them to the wind
                               F#m
And there ain't much point in chasing
                                   E
The things you can never get back again

                               F#m
But there's still some life in this one
                             E
Give me a match and I'll reminisce
                         F#m
Of a time when we were younger
                                 E
And we were stealing our first crack



Verse (3:58)

                               F#m
And our thoughts had turned to dying
                            E
And we were unaware at the time
                              F#m
That this ride it could ever fall...
                             E
Could ever slow down to this time...



Verse (4:24)

                                    F#m
For I've been drunk and stoned and feeling mellow
                                 E
And that's how I've been getting through
                               F#m
Looking at the blurry shapes around me
                           E
Thinking I knew more than I knew



Verse (4:52)

                           F#m
And it's not that I don't love you
                     E
Or are tired of your ways
                         F#m
If I could only take you with me
                          E
If I could only ease this pain



Outro (5:20)
