The guitar parts continue on the same way through the following lyrics. The bass interchangeably uses the different lines shown here. Lyrics: Because my lover left me for the girl that he had loved before The sky was clowdy then turned blue. Because I saw it was no use, to want someone who's heart was elsewhere. So I decided not to care (oh yeah) =========================CHORUS=============================== Vocals He wants me back, but he can't have me Guitar1 B Abm Dbm F# Bass

Repeat the intro and then go into Verse 2. Lyrics: The grass is greener without you (It's true) So many things for me to do. Living my life for me and on my own. It is so great to be alone. And now you're knocking at my door, you've realized you love me more. Well I've got no time to hear apologies, I've got the world to see.
