Capo 3

This uses the same chord progression as another version on the site,thanks to 
danielmchugh16 for that, however it differs in how each chord is played:

For each bar of the chords play this:

D                       A

E|---------2-------|     E|--------0--------|     E|--------3-------|
B|-----3-----3---3-|     B|----2-----2---2--|     B|----3-----3---3-|
G|---2---2-----2---|     G|--2---2-----2----|     G|--0---0-----0---|
D|-0---------------|     D|-----------------|     D|----------------|
A|-----------------|     A|-0---------------|     A|----------------|
E|-----------------|     E|-----------------|     E|-3--------------|

D 1 bar  A 1 bar  G 2 bars x 4

             D         A       G
You could be happy and I won't know
                          D     A           G
But you weren't happy the day I watched you go
                          D      A       G
And all the things that I wish I had not said
                             D       A     G
Are played on loops 'til it's madness in my head

                  Em         D     G
Is it too late to remind you how we were?
                         Em      D        G
But not our last days of silent, screaming blur
               Em       D        G
Most of what I remember makes me sure
                               D       A       G
I should have stopped you from walking out the door

             D        A        G
You could be happy, I hope you are
            D            A           G
You made me happier than I'd been by far
                   D     A         G
Somehow everything I own smells of you
                   D            A       G
And for the tiniest moment it's all not true

                       Em     D      G
Do the things that you always wanted to
                         Em        D            G
Without me there to hold you back, don't think, just do
                     Em      D      G
More than anything I want to see you girl
                D           A         G
Take a glorious bite out of the whole world
