Intro: Fm  Eb  Db

Fm7              Eb                       Db    
 I can take the rain on the roof of this empty house,
             Eb
That don't bother me,
Fm7                Eb                          Db
 I can take a few tears now and then and just let em out,
     Eb         Db    
I'm not       afraid to cry every once in awhile,
-Eb-         Fm7                               -Eb-
even though goin on with you gone, still upsets me,
Db    
there are days every now and again, I pretend I'm ok,
              Eb
But that's a not what gets me

Chorus:
Fm                  Eb - Db    
   What hurts the most,      was being so close,
Ab                          Db-Eb
 and having so much to say,    and watching you walk away,
Fm                Eb - Db    
   And never knowin',        what could've been,
Ab                         Ebsus4         Eb             Fm7 - Eb - Db    
 And not seein that lovin you, is what I was tryin to do


Fm7                            Eb                     Db    
   It's hard to deal with the pain of losin you everywhere I go,
          Eb
But I'm doin' it,
Fm7                          Eb                       Db    
   It's hard to force that smile when I see our old friends and I'm alone,
        Eb
Still harder,
Db                                     -Eb-
gettin up, gettin dressed, livin with this regret,
    Fm7                      -Eb-   Db    
But I know if I could do it over,     I would trade, give away
                                                 Eb
all the words that I saved in my heart that I left unspoken

Chorus:
Fm                  Eb - Db    
   What hurts the most,      is being so close,
Ab                         Db-Eb
 and having so much to say,   and watching you walk away,
Fm                Eb - Db    
   And never knowin',        what could've been,
Ab                         Ebsus4         Eb              Db-Eb-Db-
 And not seein that lovin you, is what I was tryin to do

Interlude:
                    Hey
-Fm - Eb - Db      -  Fm - Eb - Db    -

Chorus:
Fm                  Eb - Db    
   What hurts the most,      was being so close,
G                           C   D                             Ebm - Em
 and having so much to say,-to say-  and watching you walk away,
Fm                Eb - Db    
   And never knowin',        what could've been,
Ab                     Db    Eb                   Ab      Db    
 And not seein that lovin you, is what I was tryin to do,
                          Eb                              Fm7 - Eb - Db
And not seein that lovin you, That's what I was tryin to do.

    I think +4 is the easiest. But also -1 if you want to try both.
