[Intro]

Cmaj7 Em D C


[Verse 1]

Cmaj7
Did all the words I never said
Em
Hurt as bad as those I did 
D
You know I never even care
C
Not before you

Cmaj7
If I could go and turn back time
Em
If I could only press rewind
D
I would bleed this heart of mine
C
Just to show you


[Pre-Chorus]

C                             Em
I'll be the first to say I'm sorry
                  D
First to say I'm stupid
                 C
Why do I always take you there
C                                  Em
Is it hopeless, or maybe you still want to
               D
Meet me at the altar
                  C
And I will lay it all to bear


[Chorus]

      C                Em
And I told you all my secrets,
        D               C
All my fears, I've let go
           C                    Em
And it's flawless, you are the only one
             D                    C
You are the only one, don't you know
           C
Don't you know


[Verse 2]

Cmaj7
Am I fading from your mind
Em
Has the distance blurred the lines
D
They say : All things heal with time
C
But it's untrue

Cmaj7
I will linger on every word
Em
I know it's more than I deserve
D
Chances are I'll make it worse
C
But I need to


[Pre-Chorus]

C                            Em
Tell you, tell you that I'm sorry
                    D
Tell you that I'm stupid
                 C
Why do I always take you there
      C                            Em
Is it hopeless, or maybe you still want to
               D
Meet me at the altar
                  C
And I will lay it all to bear


[Chorus]

      C                Em
And I told you all my secrets,
        D               C
All my fears, I've let go
           C                    Em
And it's flawless, you are the only one
             D                    C
You are the only one, don't you know


[Bridge]

           C     Em
Don't you kno-o-ow,
            D                               Am
That the hardest part is not having you to hold
           C     Em
Don't you kno-o-ow,
          D                                  Am
This old heart of mine can't bear to see you go

[Chorus] (x3)

      C                Em
And I told you all my secrets,
        D               C
All my fears, I've let go
           C                    Em
And it's flawless, you are the only one
             D                    C
You are the only one, don't you know

End on C

Pretty good, although I'm fairly sure that the fourth C's in the bridge should be Am:

C     Em
Don't you kno-o-ow,
D Am
That the hardest part is not having you to hold
C Em
Don't you kno-o-ow,
D Am
This old heart of mine can't bear to see you go
