Chords
Transpose
[Intro]
Db  Gb
Bbm AbI miss, I mi—, I miss you
Eh, fuck it! [Verse 1]
DbThis might be the hardest song I've ever had to write
Yeah, I dreamt about you last night
GbI only see you when I close my eyes tight
Yeah, I wish I told you how I felt before you left
BbmBut it just never felt right
AbYeah, *crying*
DbI wish I told you everything before you left
I won't forget the day that they found the growth in your chest
GbThe cancer took ahold of your body and then it spread
I talk to you more now than I ever did—I'm a mess
BbmThis song will never capture the pain that I could express
I learned from you that nothing is perfect, but try your best
AbI know you had your demons that younger me didn't get
And out of all our demons, our biggest might be regret
DbRelate more than ever, remember back when I would only see you every other week
And every other Wednesday, you would take us out to eat
GbMom and you had split, so we're living in between
Looking up the word "divorced" to understand what it could mean
BbmBut I don't understand, Mom is with another man
You been drinking heavier, to me it was just another can
AbCulture full of broken homes, we were just another fam
Coulda left like other dads, you, you had another plan
DbSo you stuck around, dealt a life that you probably would never choose
You bottled it inside and that bottle turned into booze
GbThe Jäger took ahold and your body took the abuse
But finally found soberity, cried when I got the news
BbmI know, been hurting more than I show
Inspired by your story, couple things you should know
AbI met this girl at my show, teared up by what I was told
She said, "I'm sober 'cause of you, you do way more than you know" And I say— [Hook]
DbAnd I say, "Ohh, please grant me the serenity
GbTo accept everything I cannot change"
Bbm DbYou, you always told me I had to do anything
AbTo have you back, see you one day
Db GbI, I wonder if you see me when I fall, yeah
BbmI wonder if you hear me now at all
Maybe if the world played this through speakers
AbI'd be loud enough to reach you, and you'll hear
My last letter for you [Verse 2]
DbAnd I don't understand how you would stay so optimistic
You started chemo, fought the battle, never quit
GbThat really left an imprint
And we would talk about our lives and after this
BbmHow we would live 'em different
See, Mom and you would put your differences aside
AbEvery day she would visit, see the love and your vision
See the hurt in your smile, your wisdom is what I'm missing the most
DbI'll never be ready to let you go
I never felt so helpless it's outta both our control
GbYou told me how you wanted to travel, next year you'll go
And your body had become fragile, not once did you lose your soul
BbmWe were told, it was progressing and you had less than a week
True love is every tear when we told you we had to leave
AbAnd how we would converse it, not once did we need to speak
That one day in late October you passed away in your sleep
DbI been cryin' when I think about it
I miss your smile, I miss your laugh, and now I live without it
GbI told you music was my passion, and you never doubt it
And people tell me they relate, but now I truly doubt it
BbmRemember cryin' on your grave and yellin' up to you, "How did I lose my way?"
I won't forget that summer was some of my darkest days
AbWas asking for a sign, sat in my tears and prayed
When I saw that sign you sent me, that day was forever changed
DbI know, I know, I should've been a better me
Oh, blame me when we argue, I said things I didn't mean
GbMe and you are who our issues should have always been between
So I'm sorry for the lack of communication from me
BbmI just wish that you were here, so you could watch me win a Grammy
But more importantly to build a family
AbI hope I make you proud and become everything I can be
I hope they play it loud and send this letter where I can't reach Sincerely, Mark [Hook]
DbAnd I say, "Ohh, please grant me the serenity
GbTo accept everything I cannot change"
Bbm DbYou, you always told me I had to do anything
AbTo have you back, see you one day
Db GbI, I wonder if you see me when I fall, yeah
BbmI wonder if you hear me now at all
Maybe if the world played this through speakers
AbI'd be loud enough to reach you, and you'll hear
My last letter for you
