Avril Lavigne – When You’re Gone

Intro:C-Em (x3)D

Verse 1:
G D/F# Em
i always needed time on my own
i never thought i need you there when i cry
G D/F# Em
and the days feel like years when im alone
and the bed where you lie its made up on your side

Am G/B
when you walk away i count the steps that you take
do you see how much i need you right now

C Em D
when you’re gone the pieces of my heart
are missing you
C Em D
when you’re gone the face that came to know is missing to
Am C
when you’re gone the words i need to hear
G D/F# C D
to always get me through the day and make it okay

i miss you

(Repeat Intro)

Verse 2:
G D/F# Em
I’ve never felt this way before
Everything that I do, reminds me of you
G D/F# Em
And the clothes you left that lied on the floor
And they smell just like you, I love the things that you do

(Repeat Refrain and Chorus)

Bm C G
We were made for each other, Out here forever
D B7
I know we were yeahh!!!
I know I ever wanted was for you to know
Everything I do I give my heart and soul
A/C# D
I can hardly breathe I need to feel you here with me yeahh!!!

(Repeat Chorus and intro)
