Intro - x2 -: D Asus4

Verse:
D                                G
The hardest thing I'd ever do is say goodbye
                          Bm
and walk slowly away from you,
         G
But I'll do it.
          D
And after all this time I shared with you,
   G
it seems unfair to leave with nothing more
     Bm                    G
than blank stares, but I'll do it.
        D
If it's for the best then I wish you well,
      G                             Bm
if it helps to say our life was a living hell,
          G
well then do it, then do it, then do it.

Chorus:
D                          G
Don't you ever forget about me,
         Bm
When you toss and turn in your sleep,
  G
I hope it's because you can't stop thinking about
    D
the reasons why you close your eyes,
  Asus4
I haunt your dreams at night,
       D                         G
So you can't stop thinking about me,
                          D
don't stop thinking about me.

Interlude - x2 -: D Asus4

Verse:
D
Do you really think you could see this through,
    G                               Bm
put on a smile, and wear it for someone new?
          G
Don't you do it.
D                                       G
Cause I know I'm not the easiest one to love,
                  Bm                G
but every ounce I have, I'd invest in you.
Em                                     G
No one said love's not for taking chances.

Chorus:
D                          G
Don't you ever forget about me,
         Bm
When you toss and turn in your sleep,
  G
I hope it's because you can't stop thinking about
    D
the reasons why you close your eyes,
  Asus4
I haunt your dreams at night,
       D                         G
So you can't stop thinking about me,
                          D
don't stop thinking about me.

Bridge:
Em                            Gbm G
 Will you take me back in the morning,
Em                            Gbm G
If i promise to never act this way again?
Em                            Gbm G
 Cause I'm so bad at being lonely,
Em                            Gbm G
but I don't know how, I don't know how.


         D                  G
So don't you ever forget about me,
      D                    G
don't you ever forget about me.

Chorus:
D                          G
Don't you ever forget about me,
         Bm
When you toss and turn in your sleep,
  G
I hope it's because you can't stop thinking about
    D
the reasons why you close your eyes,
  Asus4
I haunt your dreams at night,
      D                         G
So you can't stop thinking about me,
                            D
don't stop thinking about me.
          Asus4                        G
Just close your eyes and fall asleep tonight.
