F#m D
So what if it's breaking my heart at the root
E Bm D
Something that could happen to anyone, I suppose
F#m D
Never any comfort to get from the truth
E Bm D
From knowing the part of this person that no one knows
Bm A D
So we just cry
Bm A D
With hopelessness
Bm A E D
We're making such a mess

F#m D F#m E D
It's long gone, buddy, now - run and go after it
F#m D F#m E D
It's long gone, buddy, now - run and go after it

It's not that I'm frightened of being alone F#m | D
It's just that I know what a burden this grief can be E | Bm D
Everything happens for something, I know F#m | D
Can't understand for the moment what this could mean E | Bm D
That love is gone Bm A | D
That love is blind Bm A | D
That love is so unkind Bm A | E D

It's long gone, buddy, now - run and go after it F#m | D | F#m | E D
It's long gone, buddy, now - run and go after it F#m | D | F#m | E D

E D
Nobody wants to be happier more than me
E D A
Nobody wants to be happier more than I do
Bm A D
But happiness
Bm A D
I must confess
Bm A F#m
I don't have

Instrumental:

It's long gone, buddy, now - run and go after it F#m | D | F#m | E D
It's long gone, buddy, now - run and go after it F#m | D | F#m | E D
