Intro -x2-: Gadd9  D6  G  Bm

Gadd9             D6
I hear the clock, it's six a.m.
G                  Bm
I feel so far from where I've been
Gadd9                    D6
I got my eggs.  I got my pancakes too
G                     A
I got my maple syrup, everything but you
Gadd9                     D6
I break the yolks, make a smiley face
G                     Bm
I kinda like it in my brand new place
         Gadd9                                   D6
Wipe the spots off of the mirror don't leave the keys in the door
G                            A
I never put my towels on the floor anymore 'cause

Chorus:
G           A
Dreams last so long
D    A            Bm
Even after you're gone

I called my momma, she was out for a walk
G                            Bm
Consoled a cup of coffee but it didn't wanna talk so I
Gadd9                     D6
Picked up a paper, it was more bad news
G                           A
More hearts being broken or people being used
Gadd9                 D6
Put on my coat in the pouring rain
G                     Bm
I saw a movie it just wasn't the same
       Gadd9           D6
'Cause it was happy oh I was sad and
G                   A
It made me miss you oh so bad

And soon you will see
G
You were meant for me

And I was meant for you

Bridge:
G                         A
Go about my business, I'm doing fine
         D               A              Bm
Besides, what I say if I had you on the line
G                   A
Same old story, not much to say
Bm
Hearts are broken every day

Interlude -x2-: Gadd9  D6  G  Bm

Gadd9                        D6
I brush my teeth and put the cap back on
G                         Bm
I know you hate it when I leave the light on
  Gadd9            D6
I pick a book up.  Turn the sheets down.
G                        A
Take a deep breath and a good look around
Gadd9           D6
Put on pj's and hop into bed
    G                     Bm
I'm half alive but I feel mostly dead

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
