[Intro] : C Em F C G

[Verse 1] : 
  C                         Em
I wrote you a letter to make myself feel better
       F                    C             G
To redeem some part of me I thought I had lost
       C                        Em
And we were lost cause long before we fell apart
              F                   C            G
'Cause honey, I was too eager And you were too smart
      C                    Em
Yet I look for you in these empty rooms
         F                    C           G
You're a phone call away, I'm on the interstate
           C                      Em
And I been drinking cheap wine just to pass the time
    F                    C        G
I'm falling behind and it doesn't matter
        C   Em    F C G
Who you are    to meee

C Em F C G

[Verse 2] : 
    C                       Em
I'm just like my mother, we both love to run
         F                    C        G
Chase impossible things or unreachable dreams
      C                         Em
Lie awake in the night thinking this can't be right
          F               C         G      C     Em  F
But there is no other way to live a life alone
      C  G
I'm alone now

C Em F C G

[Verse 3] : 
     C           Em             F                  C  G
Then suddenly we wake from this dream that we have made
   C               Em               F      C  G
It hits you all at once and then it slowly fades
    C           Em              F         C  G
I'm racing into nothing now, it all falls away
  C                 Em               F      C  G
I know it now for my own sake that I cannot stay

[Outro] : C Em F C G   C
