The Abandoned Chords
Capo on the 4th, creating your own melody to these chords is relatively easy. I 
signify a chord sliding into another with this symbol - during the breakdown.

"The Abandoned"

Em
Staring at the wall,
D/F#m                       G         D/F#m
I never thought this would be so hard.
                 Em                      D/F#m
How could I have been so close and never known you?
        G                          D/F#m
I never knew, I never knew you at all!

Em                           D/F#m
You will always be my father but I hope you know,
G                                   D/F#m
It's your fault and I'll never know what that means.
Em                         D/F#m
You left a void that never could be replaced.
     G                         D/F#m
I am dying inside but you will never see!

Am Em                    D/F#m       G      D/F#m
I always had hoped that you did not want it this way,
Am                Em                    D/F#m
But no matter how hard I try you always pushed me away.

You said you loved me but...

C       Em           D/F#m
How was I supposed to know
         G     D/F#m
(How was I supposed to know)
     Em     
When you left me here,
D/F#m            C
You left me here alone?
Am        Em              D/F#m
Do I ever even cross your mind,
G          D/F#m
Just for a second?
Am     Em       D/F#m
Do you know I'm alive?

Breakdown: Em

Em              D/F#m                       G
You know I would let you in but you threw everything away.
D/F#m                                                  Em
So tell me what did you get from all of these years of pain?
            D/F#m
You have no clue what I've been through,
G                                   D/F#m 
But I guess that you wanted it that way!

C       Em           D/F#m
How was I supposed to know
         G     D/F#m
(How was I supposed to know)
     Em     
When you left me here,
D/F#m            C
You left me here alone?
Am        Em              D/F#m
Do I ever even cross your mind,
G          D/F#m
Just for a second?
Am     Em       D/F#m
Do you know I'm alive?

Em                 C
If you would've been there,
Em                 C
If you would've stuck around.
Em
If you would've been there when I needed you,
Em
You would've been so
D/F#m
You would've been so proud!

C       Em           D/F#m
How was I supposed to know
         G     D/F#m
(How was I supposed to know)
     Em     
When you left me here,
D/F#m            C
You left me here alone?
Am        Em              D/F#m
Do I ever even cross your mind,
G          D/F#m
Just for a second?
Am     Em       D/F#m
Do you know I'm alive?
