Almost goodbye    (video)    (midi)

 

    Am - G - F (2x)

 

  Am                                        G

1.    There was rain on the street last night,

F

    we stood beneath the front door light,

Am                               G                    F

    and everything we said we made sure the neighbors heard.

Am                              - G

    You called me this,        I called you that,

F

    standing on the welcome mat,

Am                      G                        F

    everything we felt, it all came down to just one word.

           Dm

    But you couldn't say it and I couldn't say it.

 

C            G        F

    You know I tried my best to go,

C       G            F                   G

    I know you cried 'cause I hurt you so.

Dm                                            Am

    It should have been easy to say that we were through,

           Dm                                     G

but to walk away from love was more than we could do.

           F   G           Am   F   G            Am

It was almost goodbye, almost goodbye.

 

+  Am - G - F

 

   Am                                                    G

2.     Now there was sun through the blinds this morning,

F

    when I opened up my eyes,

Am                         G                     F

    outside I could hear a mockingbird.

Am                                   G           - F

    And I could feel your heartbeat       as you lay there by my side,

Am                                  G                             F

    I thought of how the world could end with just one word

          Dm

    but you didn't say it, and I didn't say it

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

+  CHORUS       +  Am - G - F (2x)

 

   Dm                                                    G

+      Sometimes the most important words

 

    are the ones that you leave unspoken.

 

D             A       G

    You know I tried my best to go,

D       A             G                   A

    I know you cried 'cause I hurt you so.

Em                                            Bm

    It should have been easy to say that we were through,

           Em                                                    A

but to walk away from love that way was more than we could do.

           D   A             G

It was almost goodbye.

 

    D       A             G

+     Almost goodbye, no, I couldn't say it was

D        A            G               - D        A             G

    almost goodbye, oh oh.        Almost goodbye ....
