Verse 1:
E                 C#m
  Come on come on pick me up
E/G#            A
    Go on go on let me down
E                           C#m
  You couldn't tell me if I asked 
     E/G#            A
you "Do you want me around?"
E                 C#m
  Come on come on play your games
E/G#             A
   Go on, go on, say my name
E                      C#m
  You won't you won't stay the 
         E/G#
same And don't you know it's 
     A
just not like me to wait?


Refrain:
C#m
   Cause you give me your reasons
         B
But I've heard them all before
        E/G#
This is it, and I'll admit that


Chorus 1:
A               B    E
  I breakdown I breakdown
             B
when I can't see you
A               B    E
  I breakdown I breakdown
               B
when you don't call
    A
And I've told myself
  E
a thousand times
     B
That if you left I'd
be alright and
A               B    E
  I breakdown I breakdown 
           B      (hold)  E-- x2
if I can't see you tonight


Verse 2:
E                   C#m
  Come on, come on, keep me here
E/G#             A
   Go on, go on, watch my tears
E               C#m
  Go on, go on, say goodbye cause
  E/G#                  A
I know, I know it won't be the
         E               C#m
last time Go on and I'll watch you
  E/G#             A
go   Go on, go on, I just hope you
E                        C#m
know It's a slim to none chance
             E/G#              A
that I'll be here when you get home


(Repeat Refrain)


Chorus 2:
A               B    E
  I breakdown I breakdown
             B
when I can't see you
A               B    E
  I breakdown I breakdown
               B
when you don't call
    A
And I've told myself
  E
a thousand times
     B
That if you left I'd
be alright and
A               B    E
  I breakdown I breakdown 
           B
if I can't see you tonight


Bridge: Benji Madden sings
C#m                     B
   I really don't wanna talk it
out There's nothing left here
   A
to fight about or cry about
   F#/Bb
So don't misunderstand
me I'm giving up
C#m
   I really don't
      B
wanna see your face
                 E/G#
When you look at me that
         A
way like it's a game
    G#/C
I'm really not OK but I won't


Chorus 3: 
Breakdown and breakdown 
if I can't see you
No I won't breakdown and 
                       G#/C--
breakdown if you don't call


Chorus 4: Modulate from E to F#
B               C#   F#/Bb
  I breakdown I breakdown
             C#
when I can't see you
B               C#   F#/Bb
  I breakdown I breakdown
               C#
when you don't call
    B
And I've told myself
  F#
a thousand times
     C#
That if you left I'd
be alright and
B               C#   F#/Bb
  I breakdown I breakdown
           C#
and I would, I can't stop
myself even I would
B               C#   F#/Bb
  I breakdown I breakdown
           C#        B    F# C#(hold)
if I can't see you tonight
