Verse:


D







Am
I still think of you, every once in awhile




Em




G
I miss you telling me that you loved my smile




D


Am
You meant everything to me

Em





G
And honestly I just can't see


Chorus-ish:





D
How you don't care about me, 'cause your love is gone





Am
I thought you'd miss me too, but I was wrong




Em
And now I'm trying hard, hard to forget,



G
But this isn't working out for me yet





D
'Cause now my life's a mess, I don't know up from down




Am
When I was with you everything was bound
Em
Together



G







D Am Em G...
You said "forever"... but you lied.


Now I've got another guy, and you another girl.
We've gone our separate ways, living in separate worlds
Even our best friend said that this isn't right,
That she believes that someday we might

Find each other and be together again
End up how it should have always been
At the time we just weren't strong enough
To get through the patch that had seemed so rough
'Cause it hadn't always been like this
There was something in every touch, every kiss,
That was better
When you said "forever"... but you lied.


Bridge:

So now I'm laying in my room, all alone,
Musing how things would be if I would have known
That you could fall for the trap of another heart
And tear everything that we had apart


Maybe someday, our paths will finally cross
And we'll both appreciate everything we'd lost
And we will have the strength to hold on
So that this time it won't go wrong

And you'll tell me that though you said you were done,
Though you said that I shut out all of your fun,
That I didn't ever seem to understand you
Quite the way that you wanted me to
Though you said you felt nothing when we kissed
Though you told your friends that you would never miss
Us together,
Or when we said "forever"... you had lied.
