I hope he keeps your eyes closed tight and
I hope that when he leaves you still
You smell him on your sheets 'cause I can , I can

forget your legs around my hips
forget your hands pressed on my back
forget the letters that i kept

forget our one last kiss goodbye
forget me stakin' out your house
forget i've got you figured out

forget your legs around my hips
forget your hands pressed on my back
forget the letters that i kept
this is another i won't send

Great song, but it was hard to hear the guitar parts.
It's not 100%, but I'm sure it's really close.
Sorry if it's confusing, just listen to it.

Sounds decent but I think the intro is a string too high. Play it down a string from the tab and it sounds pretty close.
