Intro
Am F C G x2


Verse 1
                    Am
Had every word prepared
                F
Wasn't even scared
                                 C                      G
Rehearsed the scene a million times and still felt no where
                       Am
You were just down the hall
                F
Not knowing at all
                   C                             G
What was about to happen when I laid it on the line


            Am              F
'Cause it's written on my face
            C            G
Though you see it in my eyes
            Am                F
How do you tell someone you love
              C
What's gonna hurt
             G
Don't wanna hurt


Chorus
Am                 F
This went on too long
                         C                        
I'm telling you what's wrong
                             G
Tried and couldn't bring myself
(Shoulda been simple)
Am                  F
So many times I've tried
                    C
The time was never right
                   G
It was so complicated
(Shoulda been simple)

Am       F
Oh-oh oh-oh
(Shoulda been simple)
C              G
Oh-oh oh-oh-oh-oh
(Shoulda been simple)
X2


Verse 2
                      Am                   
Let's not point the finger
                     F
this just kinda happened
                          C                                G
No matter how this ends today, I wanna leave here as friends
                            Am
It's not that I don't love you (Don't love you)
                            F
Don't think that I don't care (Don't care)
                            C                           G
We were trying to fly a plane, the wings were just not there


            Am             F
And it's written on my face
            C                G
And though you see it in my eyes
            Am               F
How do you tell someone you love
              C
What's gonna hurt
              G
What's gonna hurt

Am                 F
This went on too long
                         C                        
I'm telling you what's wrong
                             G
Tried and couldn't bring myself
(Shoulda been simple)
Am                  F
So many times I've tried
                    C
The time was never right
                   G
It was so complicated
(Shoulda been simple)

Am       F
Oh-oh oh-oh
(Shoulda been simple)
C              G
Oh-oh oh-oh-oh-oh
(Shoulda been simple)

A                 Em                           Cadd9
Remember the day that we said that we wouldn't change

We changed
A                    Em                     Cadd9        
'Cause nothing's the same anymore since that day

That day

A                                    Em

Shoulda been, shoulda been, shoulda been

Shoulda been, shoulda been, shoulda been
(Oh-oh)
