Intro: Bb F C Dm

Bb                            F                       
 People like you always want back 
                    C
The love they gave away
                           Dm           
And people like me wanna believe you 
                       Bb
When you say you cha-a-anged
                          F                    C
The more I think about it now the less I kno-o-ow
                       Dm                      
All I know is that you drove us off the road

  
Bb
Stay, hey
                     F
All you had to do was, stay
                           C
Had me in the palm of your hand, hand
                         Dm                C
Why'd you have to go and lock me up when I let you in?


Bb
Stay, hey
                       F
Now you say you want it, back
                       C
Now that it's just too late
                           Dm
Well, it could've been easy
               C           Bb

All you had to do was, stay
               C

Bb                            F                          
 Here you are now calling me up 
                         C
but I don't know what to say
                         Dm           
I've been picking up the pieces 
       C            Bb
Of the mess you made
                            F                        
People like you always want back 
                      C
The love they pushed aside
                            Dm 
And people like me are gone forever 

When you say goodbye
