Riff (I call this "Walk" in the tab...it's basically a bass note walk, but should
be done with strumming):

So here we go...

Intro = F

F
 We took a weekend, drove to Provo
F                               -Walk- F
 The snow was white and fluffy
F
 But a weekend in Utah won't fix what's wrong with us
F
 And the grey sky was vast and real cryptic above me

---
    G             F                        F  -Walk- F
 I wanted you, to love me like you used to do

---
F
 We took 2 weeks in the Bahamas
F
 Went out dancing every night
F
 Tried to fight the creeping sense of dread with temporal things
F                                G
 Most of the time I guess I felt alright

---
G      F        G     F                           -Walk- F
 But I wanted you, to love me like you used to do

F                   F
 But you cannot run, And you cannot hide
F                                       F                G       F
 From the wreck we've made of our house, And the mess inside

---
F
 We went down to New Orleans
F
 One weekend in the Spring
F
 Looked hard for what we'd lost
        F                           G
 It was painful to admit it, but we couldn't find a thing

---
G      F        G     F                           -Walk- F
 And I wanted you, to love me like you used to do

---
F
 Went to New York City in September
        F
 Took a train out of Manhattan, to the Grand Army stop
            F
 Found that bench we'd sat together on a thousand years ago
        F                                   G
 When I felt such love for you I thought my heart was gonna pop

---
G      F        G     F                           -Walk- F   G   F
 And I wanted you, to love me like you used to do

F                 F
 But I cannot run, And I can't hide
F                                       F                G      F
 From the wreck we've made of our house, And the mess inside

Outro: F F F F F F G F F G F
