Verse 1

[D]        [Dsus2][D]
Sorry
   [A7sus4] [A7]      [Em]
Is all that you can't say
[A7sus4]   [A7]   [D]
Years gone by and still
[A7sus4]    [A7]     [Em]
Words don't come easily
     [G]        [A]
Like sorry like sorry

Verse 2 [chords same as verse 1]

Forgive me
Is all that you can't say
Years gone by and still
Words don't come easily
Like forgive me forgive me

Chorus
                [D]
But you can say baby
[Em]       [G]        [D]
Baby can I hold you tonight?
[Em]      [G]          [Bm]
Baby if I told you the right words
            [A]
Oooh at the right time
You'd be mine

Interlude

[D]       [Em]      [F#m]     [G]  [A]

I love you
Is all that you can't say
Years gone by and still
Words don't come easily
Like I love you I love you

In the verse the first Em should always be a D in all the verses. Only the last chord progression of each verse should end in Em
(its just my opinion i may be wrong)

great tab. however, on the bit just before the chorus, do one beat (or whatever the technical name for it is!) of Asus4. it builds it up that extra bit more!

in the chorus a7sus4 sounds better than em, although both probably aren't correct
