Verse 1: [Do intro chords (Plucking)]

E                   A               C#m       A
 The first time we met it felt like fireworks
E                   A                     C#m     A
 The perks of the Midwest now've suddenly changed
            E                   A        
 The whole world passes by on a string I am tied
        C#m                     A
 You're holding the can on the opposite side
           E
 Now lets open the door
          A
 Take a breath of fresh air
     C#m                     Badd9(strum once)
 That summer was kind to us both
                     A(strum once)  Am
 Now its time to be strong

Chorus:

     A            E               C#m           Badd9
 You came to me opened your heart as we said hello
     A                 E                  C#m                Badd9
 A year has passed and now you're gone, I begged you not to go
     A                  E                C#m             Badd9 
 You said to me there's nothing here for me to hold on to
     A                    Badd9
 So darling let me be the one that holds on to you


Do Intro Plucking 2x:

          E                 A                 C#m                A
           ^                 ^                  ^                ^

Verse 2: (Strumming)

E                     A                C#m        A
 No matter how many times I say you're beautiful
E              A                C#m      A
 You'll act as if I'm telling a lie
          E                              A
 All the phone calls we've made left us frail its a shame
          C#m                        A
 Like two papers hearts riding on a paper train
          E                                A
 Red-eye flights, summer drives, shooting stars in the sky
C#m                    Badd9                 A        Am
 Is it enough to suffice, if you can't even trust me?


Chorus:

     A            E               C#m           Badd9
 You came to me opened your heart as we said hello
     A                 E                  C#m                Badd9
 A year has passed and now you're gone, I begged you not to go
     A                  E                C#m             Badd9 
 You said to me there's nothing here for me to hold on to
     A                    Badd9
 So darling let me be the one that holds on to you


Bridge: E - A (2x)

E                                        A
 Where has our love gone now that we're apart
E                                    A            Badd9                  A
 Is it lying dormant or is it just hiding in the darkest depths of our hearts
 C#m              Badd9          A
 There is nothing that I need to prove

      C#m(strum once)   Badd9(strum once) 
 I've done, all that I can, 
               A        Am
to get through to you 


Chorus:

     A            E               C#m           Badd9
 You came to me opened your heart as we said hello
     A                 E                  C#m                Badd9
 A year has passed and now you're gone, I begged you not to go
     A                  E                C#m             Badd9 
 You said to me there's nothing here for me to hold on to
     A                    Badd9
 So darling let me be the one...
     A                    Badd9
 So darling let me be the one...
     A                    Badd9                   
 So darling let me be the one that holds on to you
