Intro -x2-: Dm  G

Am                     Bm
How can I just let you walk away
             C               Dm
Just let you leave without a trace,
       F                 G                 Em   Am
When I stand here taking every breath with you, ooh.
           Dm           F                 G
You're the only one who really knew me at all.
Am                    Bm
How can you just walk away from me,
         C                     Dm
When all I can do is watch you leave,
            F                   G
Cause we've shared the laughter and the pain,
    Em              Am
And even shared the tears.
           Dm           F                 G      G7
You're the only one who really knew me at all.


                     C
So take a look at me now
                      D
Cause there's just an empty space,
            Am                   F
And there's nothing left here to remind me,
         Dm             G
Just the memory of your face.
          G7         C
Oh take a look at me now
                      D
Cause there's just an empty space,
               Am            F
And you coming back to me is against the odds,
           Dm               G        G7
And that's what I've got to face.


  Am                         Bm
I wish I could just make you turn around,
C                      Dm
Turn around and see me cry,
           F              G
There's so much I need to say to you,
   Em           Am
So many reasons why.
           Dm           F                 G       G7
You're the only one who really knew me at all.


                     C
So take a look at me now
                      D
Cause there's just an empty space,
            Am                   F
And there's nothing left here to remind me,
         Dm             G
Just the memory of your face.
          G7         C
Oh take a look at me now
                      D
Cause there's just an empty space,
       Am                        F
But to wait for you, well that's all I can do,
           Dm               G
And that's what I've got to face.
            G7         C
Take a good look at me now
                    D
Cause I'll still be standing here,
               Am            F
And you coming back to me is against all odds,
         Dm                 G       G7
It's the chance I've got to take

Interlude: Dm    G    Dm   G

       G7         Dm     G
Take a look at me now.

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

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.
