[Intro]

G, Bm, C, Em


[Verse]

G                   Bm                                G
It gets harder every day, but I can't seem to shake the pain
                                Bm
I'm trying to find the words to say, please stay
G                       Bm
It's written all over my face, I can't
C
Function the same when you're not here
    Em
I'm calling your name and no one's there
C                 D                      G
And I hope one day you'll see nobody has it easy,
              Bm                        C
I still can't believe you found somebody new
                   D
But I wish you the best, I guess.


[Chorus]

G               Bm                       C
'Cause everybody knows, that nobody really knows
               Em                        G
How to make it work or how to ease the hurt
G                 Bm                    C
We've heard it all before, that everybody knows
               Em                                 G
How to make it right, I wish we gave it one more try (try)
           Em
One more try (try)
          C
One more try
                 D                      G
'Cause everybody knows, but nobody really knows


[Intro chords]


[Verse 2]

G                       Bm                          G
I don’t care what people say, they’re probably lonely anyway
                        Bm                 G
Baby don’t fill up your head, with he said, she said
                          Bm
It seems like you just don’t know, (don’t know)
C
The radios on, you tuning me out
    Em
I’m trying to speak, you’re turning me down

C                 D                    G
And I know one day you'll see nobody has it easy,
              Bm                        C
I still can't believe you found somebody new
                   D 
But I wish you the best, I guess


[Chorus]

G               Bm                       C
'Cause everybody knows, that nobody really knows
               Em                         G
How to make it work, or how to ease the hurt
G                 Bm                    C
We've heard it all before, that everybody knows
               Em               D                Em
How to make it right, I wish we gave it one more try (try)
           Em
One more try  (try)
         C
One more try
                 D                     G
'Cause everybody knows, but nobody really knows


[Bridge]

Em              C
Oh I wish you'd understand
Am            D 
Oh, just an ordinary man
Em                  C
Wish that we'd have known
D
Everybody knows, but nobody really knows
C                       D                G
And I know one day you'll see, nobody has it easy
              Bm                        C
I still can't believe you found somebody new
               D  
I wish you the best, I guess.


[Chorus]

G               Bm                       C
'Cause everybody knows, that nobody really knows
               Em                     G
How to make it work, or how to ease the hurt
G                 Bm                    C
We've heard it all before, that everybody knows
               Em               D               Bbm   Em
How to make it right, I wish we gave it one more try (try)
         G   Bm
One more try  (try)
         Bbm
One more try
                 D                       G
'Cause everybody knows, but nobody really knows

I'd swap the Em for Am throughout. Perhaps Am is not exact, but I think it sounds better than Em. Other than that, great tab, nice and easy to play!

awesome tab!!! I noticed some good tips while playing this. on the last D major, "wishing you the best I guess" you can play D/F# i.e D major with your thumb on top E (3rd string)
