[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.
