(While guitar 1 plays the above notes guitar 2 strums Am and G and lets ring)

Am  G  Am  G

(Guitar 2 continues Am and G but with a different strum pattern.  Listen to the track to 
get the timing down)

Am      G
Oh, Oh, Oh

Am      G
Oh, Oh, Oh

Am
All you really wanted

                           G
Was to be alone at least a little while

             Am
How was I to know that?

                        G
Well, it seemed like an eternity

         Am
When you smile and say,
                              G
"I thought about it, it's the right time"

         Am
And I expect that
                              G
You're never returning to the USA

Am  G  Am  G

Guitar 1
Each note in this sequence in played 14 times.  Listen to the track to get the timing down.

Am      G
Oh, Oh, Oh

Am      G
Oh, Oh, Oh

                Am
Oh, the way the lights are

                               G
I can see your face is getting clearer

                         Am
It's like you never even left here

                            G
It's like you never had the reason to want to go

      Am
Well, I don't know

                             G
I think it's time for you to face it

                        Am
You never felt right in our world

                     G
You never felt right about yourself

       Am
And I think about what it might be like

           G
If I could go alone, if I could go at night

      Am
Would it be just like you know you said it would

         G
Would it start the life aglow
