Intro: A B A E B

A                               B
I bet this time of night you're still up
A                               B
I bet you're tired from a long, hard week
A                                         B
I bet you're sitting in your chair by the window
        E          B
Looking out at the city
    A                               B -once
And I bet sometimes you wonder about me


A                        B
 And I just want to tell you
         E               A        B
It takes everything in me, not to call you
A                      B
  And I wish I could run to you
      E        B
And I hope you know that
A       
Every time I don't
    B        
I almost do, 
   A         B  A E B -once 
I almost dooooo


A                                    B
I bet you think I either moved on or hate you
A                                           B
'Cause each time you reach out there's no reply
A                     B
I bet it never, ever, occurred to you 
     E           A                    
That I can't say hello to you
          E           B
And risk another goodbye


A                        B
 And I just want to tell you
         E               A        B
It takes everything in me, not to call you
A                      B
  And I wish I could run to you
      E        B
And I hope you know that
A       
Every time I don't
    B        
I almost do, 
           A  B  A E B
I almost doooo


Dbm -once
 We made quite a mess, babe
     A                           Dbm -once
It's probably better off this way
And I confess, babe
     A                                   Dbm
That in my dreams you're touching my face
           B       A            B         A
And asking me if I want to try again with you
       B        A
And I almost do


A                     B
 And I just want to tell you
         E               A        B
It takes everything in me, not to call you
A                      B
  And I wish I could run to you
      E        B
And I hope you know that
A       
Every time I don't
    B        
I almost do, 
            A  B  A E B
I almost doooo


A                               B
I bet this time of night you're still up
A                               B
I bet you're tired from a long, hard week
A                                         B
I bet you're sitting in your chair by the window
        E          B
Looking out at the city
    A                                 B -once
And I hope, sometimes you wonder about me

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.
