[Intro]
Bb Eb

[Verse 1]
Bb
It's been seventeen days since you left
              Cm Dm  Eb
Twenty hours and thirty minutes
Eb
Count the seconds every breath
                                  Bb
And watch the road roll out like ribbon
Bb                              Cm Dm
And maybe she just can't forget
Eb
All the miles they have driven
Eb
Since the moment that they met

[Pre-Chorus]
              Eb
He took her heart
          F
Into his hands
            Gm
Turned into ashes
                    Bb
Slipped through his fingers
  Cm Dm        Eb
It tore him apart
                F
And he couldn't stand
            Gm
Watching the magic
          Bb
Turn into cinders

[Chorus]
Eb
So when you pull away
F
Don't let the memories blind you
Gm
All of the things you chase
Bb
Falling away behind you
Bb
Is something you can't replace
F
Chained to the love that bonds you
Gm
Don't let the past remind you
Bb                    Eb
She's the last of her kind
    F              Gm
The last of her kind
    Bb            Bbadd9
The last of her kind

[Verse 2]
          Bb
It's been twenty-three days since they spoke
                    Eb
And he almost sent a postcard
Eb
In every sentence that he wrote
            F              Bb
Etched like tombstones on a grave yard
Bb
And maybe he just can accept
                            Eb
All the strings that needed changing
Eb
The mistakes that he was making

[Pre-Chorus]
Eb
He took her heart (he took her heart)
        F
Into his hands (into his hands)
            Bb
Turned into ashes
Bb
Slipped through his fingers
            Eb
It tore him apart (tore him apart)
                F
And he couldn't stand (he couldn't stand)
            Gm
Watching the magic
          Bb
Turn into cinders

[Chorus]
Eb
So when you pull away
F
Don't let the memories blind you
Gm
All of the things you chase
Bb
Falling away behind you
Bb
Is something you can't replace
F
Chained to the love that bonds you
Gm
Don't let the past remind you
Bb                    Eb
She's the last of her kind
    F              Gm
The last of her kind
    Bb          Bbadd9
The last of her kind

[Pre-Chorus]
              Eb
He took her heart
          F
Into his hands
            Gm
Turned into ashes
                    Bb
Slipped through his fingers
  Cm Dm        Eb
It tore him apart
                F
And he couldn't stand
            Gm
Watching the magic
          Bb
Turn into cinders

[Chorus]
Eb
So when you pull away
F
Don't let the memories blind you
Gm
All of the things you chase
Bb
Falling away behind you
Bb
Is something you can't replace
F
Chained to the love that bonds you
Gm
Don't let the past remind you
Bb                    Eb
She's the last of her kind
    F              Gm
The last of her kind
Bb            Bbsus9
The last of her kind
