I   heard     about        your trips
I   heard     about        your souvenirs
I   heard     about        the  cool breeze and the cool nights and the
Cool guys              that you spent them with
I guess I should've heard of them from you
I guess I should've heard of them from you

I   heard     about             your regrets
I   heard that  you were feeling sorry
I   heard  from someone that     you        wish   you  could
Set things      right     between us
I guess I should've heard of them from you
I guess I should've heard of them from you

D12                 Dmaj7                   D6
I'm waiting for blood, To flow to my fingers,
         G/B             A/D
I'll be alright when my hands get
D12                Dmaj7                   D6
Warm. Ignoring the phone, I'd rather say nothing,
               G/B             A/D
I'd rather you never heard my voice
D12                    Dmaj7                 D6
You're calling too late, To late to be gracious
                 G/B            A/D
And you do not warrant long goodbyes
D12                    Dmaj7                    D6
You're calling too late, You're calling too late
                   G/B   A/D
You're calling too la----ate.
