 [INTRO]

  Bb 
 . 
 [VERSE ONE]
 Bb 
 You hid me in your dorm room
                                   Gm
 It was Halloweekend, I just flew across the globe
  Gm
 Twenty two hours just to see you
          Eb 
 Just to barely fit on your twin sized bed
  Eb 
 And talk about your cool new friend
       Fsus4
 Who I never met, who you dated as soon as I left
 
 [VERSE TWO]
  Bb 
 Carolina autumn
  Bb 
 It had been a year since I saw you
            Gm
 Since we ended it

 Had a year to grow into the girl you always wanted
             Eb 
 Now we're holding hands as not quite friends
  Eb 
 But not quite lovers
  Eb 
 Well, we'll just pretend
                 F
 You say, "It's complicated to make amends"
   F 
 Well, is that the way that we're hеaded then?

 [PRE CHORUS]
   Eb 
 And you couldn't answer mе
                  Gm 
 Though you could pull me in while I brushed my teeth
      Bb 
 And let your hands both freely speak
        F 
 Like I wasn't ever gonna leave, leave

 [CHORUS]
   Eb                      Bb 
 You were all I'd ever known
                         Gm
 And now I'm supposed to love you from a distance
            F 
 Like it's nothing, like it's instant
     Eb                                   Bb
 And you say, "Let's just see where this goes"
                      Cm
 And I don't know how or why you seem just fine
               Gm                                            Ab
 'Cause I'm having to grasp that you're somehow not mine anymore
                       Eb                                  Bb 
 It's so cruel how things are only almost like they were before
 
 [POST CHORUS]
   Bb               Cm
 Like they were before
                 Gm 
 Like they were before
 Gm                Eb 
 Like they were before
 
 [VERSE THREE]
   Bb
 We walk downtown and it's charming
   Bb 
 You're alarmingly disarming
            Gm
 Yeah, we've got forty eight hours left
 Gm
 Before I fly back to my death
             Eb 
 While you stay just fine and feel alive
   Eb 
 South of the Mason Dixon line
       F 
 Where everyone closes shop at nine
   F
 Where you could somehow finally find

 [PRE CHORUS]
 Eb 
 What you were desperately looking for
   Gm
 Funny how you thought that was gonna be New York
          Bb 
 With our chalkboard walls and slanted floors
   F
 Oh, we could've had that and so much more

 Gm 
 Ask your new lover what it's like to be given
   Bb 
 A real fighting chance before you wish her, "Good riddance"
      Eb 
 Did anything ever really count
 F 
 Or was I just a two year practice round?

 [CHORUS]
  Eb                     Bb 
 You were all I'd ever known
 Bb                     Gm
 And now I'm feeling stupid, you're forbidden
                F 
 They say, yeah, we were something, too bad we were children
  Eb                         Bb 
 Ooh, I don't know where to go
  Bb                   Cm 
 And I don't know how or why you seem just fine
              Gm                                            Ab
 'Cause I'm looking at you and God knows you're not mine anymore
                     Eb                                     Bb 
 It's so cruel how things will never be the way they were before
 
 [OUTRO]
                   Cm
 Like they were before
              Gm                    Eb
 It's almost just like how it was before
               Bb 
 But it's not anymore
