VERSE 1
Em7                        Em6  Em  Em7
     I read all the lett - ers,
                 Em6  Em          Dmaj9       D
I read each word...   that you've sent to me,
                 Bm7       Bm7/A
And, though it's past now,
         Gmaj7             F#m7
And your words ...start to fade,
        Gmaj7                        F#m7
All the memories I have...still re - main
 
VERSE 2
Em7                          Em6  Em  Em7
     I've kept all the pic - tures,
                     Em6
But I hide my feel - ings,
Em Dmaj9          D    Dmaj9  D
So no one knows,
Em7                      Em6 Em    Em7
    Oh, sure, my friends all come 'round,
             Em6    Em  Dmaj9       D
But I'm in a crowd, and on my own,
                   Bm7      Bm7/A
It's 'cause you've gone now,
      Gmaj7                       F#m7
But a heart... a heart still re - mains,
          Gmaj7                          F#m7
And it'll be... here, if you--- come a - gain
 
VERSE 3
Em7                              Em6  Em  Em7
     You see, I'd heard the ru - mours,
             Em6  Em  Dmaj9         D   Dmaj9  D
I knew before---  you let me know,
Em7                       Em6  Em  Em7
    But, I didn't believe it,  not you,
         Em6  Em Dmaj9       D          Bm7        Bm7/A
No, you would not let me go, ...seems I was wrong,
      Gmaj7   G6                 F#m7
But I love...     I love you the same,
               Gmaj7          G6                 Dmaj9/A
And that's the one thing that you can't take a - way,
              Gmaj7      G6     Dmaj9/A
But just re - member... (oo!)
 
  Gmaj7     G6   Dmaj9/A    Dmaj7

   ...If leaving me is easy,
          Gmaj7                F#m7
Then, you know, coming back is harder
