It's been awhile since I begged for

Guitar 1:

Em   C            G 
  I  hear you say
     D        Em
It's not the same
     C       G              D              Em
I'm sorry; it's something I just can't explain
   C            G
So shut your mouth
     D        Em
And hold me close
    C               G          D          C 
We both know, it's better than being alone

I'm lonely,      lay me down

          D    Em
You don't understand me
   Cadd9
And you'd never even try to anyway
