Capo: 1st fret

[Verse 1]
Bm          G
 I left you here
          D              A
Heard you keep the extra closet empty
Bm            G
 In case this year
       D                     A
I come back and stay through all my twenties
Bm         G
 What if I won't
       D             A
How am I supposed to put that gently?
Bm            G
 And down the road
         D             A             Bm  D  G  A
You will love me until you resent me, mmm
 
 
[Verse 2]
Bm            G
 I've had the thought
         D                   A
Tried to work it out through anxious pacin'
Bm           G
 What if I'm not
          D                 A
Worth the time and breath I know you're savin'?
Bm          G
 But it's a lot
        D               A
All the shine of half a decade fadin'
Bm         G
 The whole facade
        D              A           Bm  D  G  A
Seem to fall, but it's complicated, mmm
 
 
[Chorus]
D                      G
 A part of me wants to walk away 'til you really listen
D                       Em
 I hate to look in your face and know that we're feelin' different
D                  G
 'Cause part of me wants you back, but
D                Em
 I know it won't work like that, huh
D                     G
 Why won't try movin' on for once? That might make it easy
D                      Em
 I know we cut all the ties, but you're never really leavin'
D               G
 And part of me wants you back, but
D                Em                  D  G
 I know it won't work like that, huh
D
 I know it won't work like that
 
 
[Verse 3]
          G
I'll open up
             D
And thinkin' everythin' you wish I wasn't
             G
The call was tough
          D
But you're better off, I'm bein' honest
              G
So, won't you stop
        D
Holdin' out for me when I don't want it?
              G
Just brush me off
                D
'Cause I'm your ghost right now, your house is haunted
 
 
[Chorus]
D                      G
 A part of me wants to walk away 'til you really listen
D                       Em
 I hate to look in your face and know that we're feelin' different
D                  G

 And part of me wants you back, but
                Em                D  G     D
I know it won't work like that, huh (Oh-oh-oh)
                Em                D  G      D
I know it won't work like that, huh (Oh-oh, oh-oh)
                Em
I know it won't work like that, huh
D                      G

                  … I left you here
Heard you keep the extra closet empty
In case this year
I come back and stay throughout my twenties
What if I won't?
How am I supposed to put that gently?
And down the road
You will love me until you resent me
Mm, mm, mm

… I've had the thought
Tried to work it out through anxious pacing
What if I'm not
Worth the time and breath I know you're saving?
But it's a lot
All the shine of half a decade fading
The whole facade
Seemed to fall apart, it's complicated
Mm, mm, hmm-mm

… And part of me wants to walk away 'til you really listen
I hate to look at your face and know that we're feeling different
'Cause part of me wants you back, but
I know it won't work like that, huh?
Why won't you try moving on for once? That might make it easy
I know we cut all the ties but you're never really leaving
And part of me wants you back, but
I know it won't work like that, huh?

… I know it won't work like that

… I'll open up
I'm thinking everything you wish I wasn't
The call was tough
But you're better off, I'm being honest
So won't you stop
Holding out for me when I don't want it?
Just brush me off
'Cause I'm your ghost right now, your house is haunted

… And part of me wants to walk away 'til you really listen
I hate to look at your face and know that we're feeling different
'Cause part of me wants you back, but
I know it won't work like that, huh?
Why won't you try moving on for once? That might make it easy
I know we cut all the ties but you're never really leaving
And part of me wants you back, but
I know it won't work like that, huh?
(Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah) oh, oh

… I know it won't work like that, huh?
(Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah) oh, oh, oh
I know it won't work like that, huh?

… And part of me wants to walk away 'til you really listen
I hate to look at your face and know that we're feeling different
'Cause part of me wants you back, but
I know it won't work like that, huh?
Why won't you try moving on for once? That might make it easy
I know we cut all the ties but you're never really leaving
And part of me wants you back, but
I know it won't work like that, huh?
