Intro: | Dmaj9 | C Dmaj9 | G | G |

C                                                                            G
Hey it's me, what a big surprise calling you up from a restaurant around the bend
  C                                                                    G
I just got in from way up north I'm aching tired now and I could use a friend
             Bm                     C                 Dmaj9
I might be a fool to think that you do want to see me again

  C                                                                                     G
I know it's been a while since I talked to you nothing wrong, just nothing ever goes as planned
C                                                             G
Many times I thought I'd call I didn't have your number in my hand
            Bm               C                    Dmaj9
I know it's true you'd never do the same thing to me

                          G                                 C
I never meant to make you cry and though I know I shouldn't call
                          Am                       Dmaj9                    G
It just reminds us of the cost of everything we've lost, bad timing, that's all
                               G                           C
And maybe soon there'll come a day when no more tears will fall
                            Am                           Dmaj9                         G
If we each forgive a little bit and we both look back on it as just bad timing, that's all

Solo: | C | G | C | G | Bm | C | Dmaj9 |

C                                                                  G
 We used to have so many plans something always seemed to turn out wrong
C                                                          G
Never could catch up to you moving on and doing all you've done
             Bm               C                  Dmaj9
I don't know why the harder I try, the harder it comes

                          G                                 C
I never meant to make you cry and though I know I shouldn't call
                          Am                       Dmaj9                    G
It just reminds us of the cost of everything we've lost, bad timing, that's all
                               G                           C
And maybe soon there'll come a day when no more tears will fall
                            Am                           Dmaj9                         G
If we each forgive a little bit and we both look back on it as just bad timing, that's all
                         Am                           Dmaj9                         G
We each forgive a little bit and we both look back on it as just bad timing, that's all
