Intro: E
    
    E       
You said it in a simple way
B 
4am the second day
    Dbm                                 A
How strange that I don't know you at all

    
   E 
We stumble through the long goodbye
B 
One last kiss then catch your flight
Dbm                                A 
Right when I was just about to fall

    
         B 
I told myself don't get attached
          Dbm 
But in my mind I play it back
         A               B                  E
Spinning faster than the plane that took you

    
                                B 
This is when the feeling sinks in
                             Dbm 
I don't wanna miss you like this
                A                   E
Come back, be here, come back, be here
                                B 
I guess you're in New York today
                             Dbm 
I don't wanna need you this way
                A                   E
Come back, be here, come back, be here

    
E        
The delicate beginning rush
    B 
The feeling you can know so much
Dbm                          A 
Without knowing anything at all
    

    E 
And now that I can put this down
   B
If I had known what I know now
  Dbm                               A
I never would have played so nonchalance
          

     B 
Taxi cabs and busy streets
           Dbm 
They never bring you back to me
        A                 B               E
I can't help but wish you took me with you
    
    
                                B 
This is when the feeling sinks in
                             Dbm 
I don't wanna miss you like this
                A                   E
Come back, be here, come back, be here                 
                              B 
I guess you're in London today
                                 Dbm 
And I don't wanna need you this way
                A                   E
Come back, be here, come back, be here 


   B  Dbm   A
Ahhh  Ahh  Ahh
    

Dbm                 E                    B
This is falling in love in the cruelest way
Dbm                  E                B          Dbm
This is falling for you when you are worlds away
         B        A                Dbm     
In New York, be here, but you're in              
      B                A 
London and I break down cause it's not fair
                 E  - once -
That you're not around
    
    
                                B  
This is when the feeling sinks in
                             Dbm  
I don't wanna miss you like this
                A                   E
Come back, be here, come back, be here                
                                B 
I guess you're in New York today
                             Dbm 
I don't wanna need you this way
                A                   E
Come back, be here, come back, be here 


    B                                     Dbm
Ahh ohh, I don't want to miss you like this
    A
Ahh ohh


E                B   Dbm               A - once -
 Come back, be here,  come back, be here

  5. I think the line is “I never would have played so nonchalant” and not ‘nonchalance’ loved this though, so easy to play and it sounds great x

  6. DEFINITELY easier if you play it up 3 half steps :)
