Verse I:
   G          C2
    I'm gonna miss you
   A7sus      D-Dsus-D                  G-> [Repeat Intro]
    I'm gonna miss you when you're gone…
   G           C2
    She says I love you
   A7sus     D-Dsus-D                G-> [Repeat Intro]
   I'm gonna miss hearing your songs

           B5/E          B5/C           B5/E
   I said "Please, don't talk about the end
         B5/C           B5/E         B5/C

   How to bend, not how to break
   G       A7sus            C2
    How to live, not how to cry
   But really I've been learning how to die,
   F          C                     G-> [Repeat Intro]
    I've been learning how to die…"

    Hey everyone…
        D-Dsus-D           G-> [Repeat Intro]
   I've got no where to go
   G            C2   A7sus
   The grave is lazy
      D-Dsus-D              G-> [Repeat Intro]
   It takes our bodies slow…

[Pre-Chorus and Chorus]
   F          C
