My Worst Fear

Intro:  A  E  A  E  B  E 
 
C#m                 B     E 
Last night you gave me a kiss  
           C#m                       B        E 
You didn't know it, but I was awake when you did  
         C#m                    B      E 
You were quiet, you were gonna let me sleep  
          C#m                B     E 
So I just laid there pretending to be  
               C#m        A                   E 
You said some things you didn't know I could hear  
         A        E               B             E 
And the words “I love you” never sounded so sincere  
                    E       A                 E      
It's gonna make it hard to tell you that I'm leaving  
A           E    B                 E 
Now that I know just how much you care  
     E       A                E     
You finally gave me one good reason  
A      E        A       E   B            E 
Not to go, but staying here is my worst fear  
     C#m               B      E 
This morning I rolled out of bed  
          C#m             B         E 
Recalling all the sweet things you said  
             C#m              B        E 
This was the day I was gonna hurt you bad  
                C#m                   B     E 
Called out your name, but you didn't answer back  
                C#m      A                  E 
I searched the house to find out what was wrong  
       A       E          B                E 
Like a ton of bricks, it hit me you were gone  
                    E       A                 E      
It's gonna make it hard to tell you that I'm leaving  
A           E    B                 E 
Now that I know just how much you care  
     E       A                E     
You finally gave me one good reason  
A      E        A       E   B            E 
Not to go, but staying here is my worst fear 
B                      C#m 
All along I knew that there was something missing  
A                          B  A 
And only one thing left to do  
B         Ab7/Eb           C#m 
I had to leave behind this life that we'd been living  
A                             B 
But the only thing that left was you  
                    E       A                 E      
It's gonna make it hard to tell you that I'm leaving  
A           E    B                 E 
Now that I know just how much you care  
     E       A                E     
You finally gave me one good reason  
A      E        A      E   B            E 
Not to go, but being alone is my worst fear 
A           E   B               E   A  E  A  E 
And staying he--re is my worst fear
