A               E             Eadd9 Dsus2
Like a Saturday night I’ll be gone

Like a Saturday night I’ll be gone before you knew that I was there

(see above riff)
E/A                         Dsus2
So you wrote it down I’m supposed to care
                 E     Esus
Even though it’s never there
             Dsus2*
Sorry if I’m not prepared   

E/A                              Dsus2
Is it hard to see the things you substitute
                  E           Esus
For me and all my thoughts of you
                Dsus2*
It’s eating me alive to leave you

A          E                      F#m
Maybe it’s childish and maybe its wrong 
               D                           A
But so is your blank stare is lieu of this song
           E                      N.C.
Maybe it’s childish and maybe its wrong


A                 E                F#m   D
Don’t want to be, don’t want to be wro- -ong
A              E                  Dsus2
You’re leaving me, you’re leaving me in lieu of this song

Don’t want to be, don’t want to be wro- -ong

You’re leaving me, you’re leaving me in lieu of this, in lieu of this song

E/A                   Dsus2
I’m breathing in your skin tonight
            E       Esus
Quiet is my loudest cry
                 D*
Wouldn’t want to wake the eyes that make me melt inside

E/A                      Dsus2
And if it’s healthier to leave you be
                           E      Esus
May your sickness come and set me free
                Dsus2*
Kill me while I still believe that you were meant for me

A5             C#5                      D5
I’m writing my own words, my own little stage
            E5                     A5
My own epic drama, my own scripted page
                  C#5                            D5
I’ll send you the rough draft, I’ll seal it with tears
             E5                   N.C.
Maybe you’ll read it and I’ll reappear
A5                    C#5                      D5
From the start it was shaky and the characters rash
                   E5                            A5
A nice setting for heartache where emotions come last
                   C#5                       D5
Oh, I haven’t even sought to overcome this desire
              E5                          D      Dm
Of friendly intentions and fare-weathered smiles

      A                 E                F#m   D
And I don’t want to be, don’t want to be wro- -ong
A              E                  Dsus2
You’re leaving me, you’re leaving me in lieu of this song
A                 E                F#m   D
Don’t want to be, don’t want to be wro- -ong
A              E                  Dsus2
You’re leaving me, you’re leaving me in lieu of this, in lieu of this song


A             E             F#m  D
Like Saturday night I’ll be go- -one
A             E             F#m  D
Like Saturday night I’ll be go- -one
A             E             F#m  D
Like Saturday night I’ll be go- -one
A             E             Dm(V)           Ddim7           A
Like Saturday night I’ll be gone before you knew that I was there

the Ddim7 chord is wrong... i checked the fingering to another tab, and their's was correct. i researched and found the chord is actually an Faug chord.
