Verse 1
          E5                  B/D#
You could stay a while longer
         C#m7             B5         A
We could stay up and talk about last summer
         E5             B/D#
We could go down to the water
          C#m7   B5    A
Watch the sunset going under

Pre-Chorus 1
     C#m7           B5                 A
Itís not that Iím a stranger to lonely moments
     E5     B/D#     A     C5
Iíve had my share of those

Chorus
             E5
Please donít go
             B/D#     C#m7
Please donít leave me alone
  A                B5        E5  (E F# G#)
A mirrorís so much harder to hold

Verse 2
        E5                B/D#
I could try and point the finger
        C#m7            B5    A
But the glass points in my direction
(A B D#)  E5             B/D#
Sure, you got your sharp edges
       C#m7               B5      A
But my wounds are from my own reflection

Pre-Chorus 2
           C#m7            B5          A
Youíve got nothing I could ever hold against you
      E5             B/D#    A   C5
I got fatal flaws to call my own

Chorus

Bridge
        F#5                   B/D#
I met a man whoís looking for perfection
        F#5                         B/D#
Said he never met a girl whoís good enough
    G#
His eyes are getting old
            A
Like theyíd love to love again
       C#     B5  F#(no5)
Such a lonely m---an
       B5                  B(no3)
Such a lonely man, eww eww eww

Verse 3
      E5            B/D#
I see him in my reflection
       C#m7          B5       A   (A B D#)
Taking steps towards me these days
     E5                 B/D#
So I hold you that much closer
    C#m7          B5         A
And pray we donít throw this away

Pre-Chorus 3
     C#m7           B5               A
Itís not that Iím a man who couldnít love you
  E5              B/D#     A   C5
I know what these arms are for

Chorus
             E5
Please donít go
             B/D#     C#m7
Please donít leave me alone
  A                B5        E5   B/D#
A mirrorís so much harder to hold
  C#m7             B5        A
A mirrorís so much harder to hold
(A B D#)     E5
Please don't go
             B/D#     C#m7
Please donít leave me cold
  A         B5        E5  (E F# G#)
