Thought that I would put up my version of this beautiful song as it wasn't here already!

This is my personal guitar version. It obviously differs from the original version as
are used several different inversions of the chords through out the song on the piano.
I believe that this version sounds quite good and relatively close to the original 
that it is a solo-guitar-version) when played with the listed chords. Enjoy :) Mads

Intro: |B(II)|A9|B(II)|A9|

B(II)                         A9
    I fall apart when you're around,
When you're here I'm nowhere,
B(II)                            A9
    I can't pretend that I'm not down,
I show it, I know it,
Dm          Dm(II)         C9(no5)
I've been a fool more than once more than twice,
Eb        C9(no5)   F/C                B          Emadd9
I'm gonna move to a new town where the people are nice.

     I hope I never,
I hope I never have to sigh again
     I hope I never
Em9(no5)                    A9
     I hope I never have to cry again.
D                  Dsus2    D
I still to want to beam and smile,
D7/C                      (B7)
Happiness is back in style,
     I hope I never,
I hope I never have to see you again.
 D      F#7
Again. Again

It should be possible I know,
To see you without stress,
But I can see I'll have to go,
I'm changing my address,
My urge to cry I have failed to conceal,
Life is no fun when you're hunted by the things you feel.

I hope I never,
I hope I never have to sigh again
I hope I never
I hope I never have to cry again.
I'm for living, while you care,
I'm an optimistic man,
I hope I never,
I hope I never have to see you again.
Again. Oh oh…

Piano Intermezzo: |B(II)|A9|B(II)|A9|Dm|Dm(II)|C9(no5)|Eb|C9(no5)|F/C|B|Emadd9|

I hope I never,
I hope I never,
I hope I never, never, never, never, never, never,
I hope I never,
I hope I never have to see you again.

Great job Mads. I'm really enjoying learning this song. As a beginner I'm getting my head around all these new chords, but I don't read tab, so I don't know what you mean by A9(II), B(II), Dm(II) & C9(no5). I've had a look around the net and I'm none the wiser. Throughout the song itself, it seems to work find if I just play the chord and forget the (II), but I'm not sure about the Intermezzo.

If someone could enlighten me, I'd really appreciate it:)
