[Intro]

Em - C - Em - Asus2  repeat 4 times


[Verse]

Em              Dsus2
A note by the door 
C        
Simply explains
Am
It's all that remains
Em               Dsus2 
It's no wonder why 
                    C    Am
I have not slept in days
Em                  Dsus2
  The dust on the floor
      C 
Piled up from the years 
          Am
All those scars and souvenirs
Em              Dsus2
Now that you're gone 
             C  Am
It's easy to see 


[Pre-Chorus]

Am
But so hard to believe 


[Chorus]

Em     D
By the way
D                
You left without saying
     C   
Goodbye to me
               Em       D
Now that you're gone away 
D           
All I can think about is
C 
You and me 
You and me 

Intro riff x 1


[Verse]

Em               Dsus2
It's not like before 
     C
You left nothing here 
      Am
It's all disappeared 
Em            Dsus2
It hurts me to see 
                 C   Am
That we've been a lie 


[Pre-Chorus]

Am  palm muted  
Would it have hurt you to try? 


[Chorus]

Em      D
By the way 
D               
You left without saying 
    C
Goodbye to me 
                 Em    D
Now that you're gone away 
D
All I can think about is 
C
You and me 
You and me 


[Bridge]

E5 - F#5 - G5 - D5 - C5

C5        D5
It's sad to say that 

E5*                G5*        
This pain is killing me inside 

E5 (palm muted)


E5 - F#5 - G5 - D5 - C5

C5         D5
But it's time to say 
E5*                G5*                              
That this pain is keeping me alive 

E5 (palm muted)

E5 - F#5 - G5 - D5 - C5

C5         D5
Twisting and turning 
E5*                G5*  
It rips through my heart 

A5  (palm muted)
It's been tearing me apart 


[Chorus]

Em      D
By the way 
D               
You left without saying 
    C
Goodbye to me 
                 Em    D
Now that you're gone away 
D
All I can think about is 
C
You and me 
You and me 


[Outro]

Em   D

D
All i think about now 
C
Is you and me 
You and me 

Em   D

D
All i think about now 
C
Is you and me 
You and me 

E5 - F#5 - G5 - D5 - C5

C5 - D5 - E5* - G5*

E5  Palm muted

By the way 
By the way

i think for the verse it's: Em (022000) | D | Am | C
and for the chorus: Em (022003) | Bm | D | C

I agree, it's a great chord chart. A suggestion:I would be nice if you posted the solo or lead, but hey, for chords it comes very close for someone who wants to sing it themselves.
