[Intro] G [Verse] G Thought about it all day G been meaning to tell you D it's too late to explain D too soon to make sense of it G Em D G all I can offer is this belated goodbye. G Just imagine if you're always coming and going D purposely misplaced and not sure where home is G Em D G but always get homesick in the cradle of night. [Break] G D [Chorus] G D G C See, if your heart had a backdoor I'd sure slip away G D G Cowardly, but it's my go-to G D G C Seems like every so-long needs some profound thing to say G D G but honest, there's nothing to tell you... Em D G Except... I hope you enjoy this mess Em D G and what you love leads you to success Em D G and when you think of me now and then C G D G forgive your friend who's always leaving. G Sometimes I think distance is perfect G cause it prolongs our romanticized state in all this D G and sometimes I really wanna call you but for some reason shy away G D G because I know you'd be glad, and that makes me sad. G So I'll show up on some cloudy day and we'll make a million pancakes G and we'll talk like its been no time at all, still young, dumb, impressionable G CM7 and you've finished Innocents Abroad CM7 C and you set me up with your extra cot G CM7 CM7 and I keep my stories to a minimum, cause you're sick of them D G but I bet you would have loved the highlands of Guatemala, D Eurail Belgium to Spain, backpacking Yosemite G Utila on a full moon dive... D G our falling out was no one's but mine. [Break] G D G D G C See, there's this ache in my chest and it won't go away G D G doctor says I pulled a muscle G D G C But I think it's some residue from what I coundn't say G D G so I carved in the wall of a hostel Em D G I wrote... I hope you enjoy this mess Em D G and what you love leads you to success Em D G and when you think of me now and then C G D G forgive your friend who's always leaving. Em D G And maybe I'm not cut out for all this Em D G maybe I want more than life can give Em D G But i hope you know it pains me to no end C G D G to be your friend who's always leaving.
