INTRO
G  Dsus4  Cadd9
G  Dsus4  Cadd9

VERSE1
I see your face in my mind as I drive away
'Cause none of us thought it was gonna end that way
People are people and sometimes we change our minds
But it's killing me to see you go after all this time
(On all G chords play d,d,d)
(On all Dsus4 chords play d,u,d,u,d,d,d)
(On all Cadd9 chords play d,d,d,d,u,u,u,d,u,d,u on the last Cadd9 cord of the verse play d,d,d,d,d on the 5th d strum it slow and pause)
 
INTERLUDE
Mm mm mm, mm mm mm mmm mmm
Mm mm mm, mm mm mm mmm mmm
(Same struumming as Intro)

VERSE2
Music starts playin' like the end of a sad movie
It's the kinda ending you don't really wanna see
'Cause it's tragedy and it'll only bring you down
Now I don't know what to be without you around
(same pattern as verse 1 for all cords when it gets the Cadd9, D and Dsus4 progession at the end play this
(Cadd9 d,d,d,d)
(D u,u,u,)
(Dsus4 d,u,d,u))
 
PRE-CHORUS
And we know it's never simple, never easy
Never a clean break, no one here to save me
You're the only thing I know, like the back of my hand
And I can't
(Play all downstrokes with a upstroke at the end for all chords when it gets to the "And I can't part you can keep doing downstrokes on the D5 chord or go acapella your choice whatever works for you)
 
CHORUS
Breathe without you, but I have to
Breathe without you, but I have to
(On all C chords play d,d,d)
(On all G chords play u,u,u,d,u,d,u)
(On all D chords except the last play d,d,d on the last D chord play all downstrokes hit the strings softer each time)
(On all Em7 chords play u,u,u,d,u,d,u)
 
VERSE
Never wanted this, never wanna see you hurt
Every little bump in the road I try to swerve
People are people and sometimes it doesn't work out
Nothing we say is gonna save us from the fall out
(Same strumming as other verses)
 
PRE-CHORUS
And we know it's never simple, never easy
Never a clean break, no one here to save me
You're the only thing I know, like the back of my hand
And I can't
(Same strumming pattern as other pre-chorus)
 
CHORUS
Breathe without you, but I have to
Breathe without you, but I have to
(Same Strumming Pattern as the other chorus)
 
BRIDGE
It's 2 am, feeling like I just lost a friend
Hope you know it's not easy, easy for me
It's 2 am, feeling like I just lost a friend
Hope you know this ain't easy, easy for me
(All downstrokes with a Up stroke at the end of each chord)
 

PRE-CHORUS
And we know it's never simple, never easy
Never a clean break, no one here to save me
Oh,  I can’t...
(Same Strumming pattern as other pre-chorus except it ends with a D chord instead of a D5 chords)
 
CHORUS
Breathe without you, but I have to
Breathe without you, but I have to
Breathe without you, but I have to
(Same strumming pattern as the other chorus except when it gets to the last D chord after the 3rd "but I have to part" start doing downstrokes)

Sorry, sorry, sorry, yeah, sorry
Sorry, sorry, sorry.
(When it gets to this part strum all downstrokes with a Up stroke at the end of each chord)
(When it gets to the last C chord in this part strum down 1 time slowly)
 
Note: I Suggest playing along with the track to get timing down
