You will notice that the intro is repeated at the end of each chorus, until the last 
few. Also, the Cmaj7 from the intro is sometimes used in the verse in place of C, but 
that's really just improvisational. Sounds great of course, but it's not necessary.

There is one moment in the first pre-chorus where the 12-string plays an A note, which can 
be played on a normal guitar as an A8 (octave). That octave also sounds good as a 5th if 
you feel so inclined (I think it's easier). For the rest of the song that part is played 
as a D. It makes for a slightly jarring transition, but it makes it quite satisfying when 
the song falls into the predicted I-V-VI-IV pattern.

Capo 3


Em G Cmaj7 G

Em G Cmaj7

Verse 1:

      Em      C      G
Was a cold 3 AM at JFK
            Em               C         G
I guess you stayed cause you wanted to stay
                 Em      C          G
And we went from zero to everything all in a day
         Em      C        G
And then Kennedy took you away

Pre-chorus 1:

               G                   A8(A5)
I thought of a short robe that was keeping you warm
        Em                        C
And the moments that make up your life till you wake up
    G                      D
You sit on a swing and you talk with the girl
    Em                      C
She tells you she wanted to kiss you

Chorus 1:

And you know that
    G                           D
The worst part of a good day is hearing yourself say
    Em                   C
Goodbye to one more possibility day
       Em  G Cmaj7 G
It goes on
     Em G Cmaj7
And on...

Verse 2:

     Em            C           G
I go west but your weather has changed
            Em           C           G
You're just scared, I mistake it for strange
                    Em             C          G
When you want me to leave then you start to believe I should stay
  Em        C        G
I gotta get out of L.A.

Pre-chorus 2:

                  G              D
It seems like the short days are over
                     Em                        C
Cause you just don?t sleep in the daylight, so I don?t sit up nights
  G                 D
I lie on my back on top of the hill
         Em                   C
And your body is breaking the sky 'cause you're shaking

Chorus 2:

        G                           D
And the worst part of a good day is knowing it's slipping
  Em                       C
Away, that's one more possibility day
     Em   G Cmaj7 G
It's gone.

Em G Cmaj7

Verse 3:

        Em          C           G
We were waiting for winter this year
        Em          C       G
But you came and it never appeared
                   Em       C           G
Me and you we know too many reasons for people and seasons
     Em             C            G
That pass like they weren't even here

Verse 4:

    Em        C         G
Now living in smiles is better you say
   Em        C          G
We carry the burdens of all of our days
   Em                       C       G
So scared that you?ll leave, you?re scared that I'll stay
        Em     C      G
It's an impossibility day
       Em       C            G
And we only saw half the ballet

Pre-chorus 3:

       G           D
I said good night, goodbye
             Em                             C
Seems like a good thing, so you know it's a good lie
        G                      D
You can run out of choices and still hear a voice in your
Em                        C
Head when you?re lying in bed

Chorus 3:

And it says that
    G                         D
The best part of a bad day is knowing it's ok
    Em                  C
The color of everything changes
            G                           D
The sky rearranges its shade, and your smile doesn?t fade
         Em                       C
Into the phone call and one bad decision we made

Chorus 4:

        G                               D
And the worst part of a good day is the one thing you don?t say
    Em                         C
And you don?t know how but you wish there was some way
        G                            D
So you pull down the shades, and you shut out the light
        Em                        C
Because somehow we mixed up "goodbye" and "goodnight"

Chorus 5:

        G                          D
And the one thing you don't say is everyone knows
     Em                C
Possibility days are impossible
            Em    G Cmaj7 G
It just feels wrong
  Em    G Cmaj7 G
So wrong...
         Em    G Cmaj7 G
Now you're gone
     Em    D/F# C F
Long gone...
