1ST VERSE:
*all of the Em's and Cadd9's from the beginning of this verse until the Cadd9 played at 
to cry" are all strummed like the ones shown above.

Em               D(no5)                  Cadd9
 I can take the rain on the roof of this empty house,
             D(NoStrum5)
That don't bother me,
Em                 D(no5)                      Cadd9
 I can take a few tears now and then and just let em out,
    D(NoStrum5)Cadd9
I'm not       afraid to cry every once in awhile,
(D)         Em                                (D)
even though goin on with you gone, still upsets me,
Cadd9
there are days every now and again, I pretend I'm ok,
                  D
But that's a not what gets me


CHORUS:
Em                  D - Cadd9
   What hurts the most,      was being so close,
G                          Cadd9 - D
 and having so much to say,          and watching you walk away,
Em                D - Cadd9
   And never knowin',        what could've been,
G                           D
 And not seein that lovin you, is what I was tryin to do

 Em      D(no5) Cadd9

2ND VERSE:
Em                             D                     Cadd9
   It's hard to deal with the pain of losin you everywhere I go,
          D
But I'm doin' it,
Em                           D                       Cadd9
   It's hard to force that smile when I see our old friends and I'm alone,
        D
Still harder,
Cadd9                                 (D)
gettin up, gettin dressed, livin with this regret,
    Em                       (D)     Cadd9
But I know if I could do it over,     I would trade, give away
                                                 D
all the words that I saved in my heart that I left unspoken


CHORUS:
Em                  D - Cadd9
   What hurts the most,      is being so close,
G                         Cadd9 - D
 and having so much to say,        and watching you walk away,
Em                D - Cadd9
   And never knowin',        what could've been,
G                           D                   Em      D - Cadd9
 And not seein that lovin you, is what I was tryin to do

ok the intro is wrong I just got an account just so people can play the intro right, the arpegiation for the intro is (after the fast hammer at beginning,1-345 with fingers on 002030, and next is 3456, fingering is 000230, and last is right, but the em that you put is way wrong, there are only four strings played you can clearly hear it, just listen, but nice tab, I just listened to the song about fifty times until I got that so try it it's right.
