Alec Benjamin - The Book of You & I: chords

        A#
Well it all began in the back of her car
F/A    Gm            D#
I was just 16 but I fell so hard
          A#
Well the years went by and she held my heart
F/A      Gm                  D#
But her love ran dry and we fell apart

F                     Gm
I felt her growing distant
                      D#
I knew her love was shifting
And all that I could say was

Chorus:
       A#
Don't tell me that it's over,
the book of you and I
 F/A          Gm
Now you've scribbled out my name
And you've erased my favorite lines
       D#
There were so many chapters
                          A#/D
that we never got to write
      Cm                      F
Like cereal for dinner and staying up all night
     A#
I remember where we started,
I remember how you looked
 F/A         Gm
But now I'm missing bits and pieces
from the pages that you took
     D#
You didn't give a reason,
                       A#/D
I'll forever wonder why
    Cm                      F             A#
We never got to finish the book of you and I

Well, I bought a pen and I turned the page
Then I wrote about how I wish you'd stayed
I said all the things that I never got to say
Maybe when it's done, I will feel okay

That she had grown so distant
And that her love had shifted
I wish she felt the same

Chorus:
Don't tell me that it's over, the book of you and I
Now you've scribbled out my name
And you've erased my favorite lines
There were so many chapters that we never got to write
Like cereal for dinner and staying up all night
I remember where we started, I remember how you looked
But now I'm missing bits and pieces from the pages that you took
You never gave a reason, I'll forever wonder why
We never got to finish the book of you and I

 A#
Don't tell me, tell me that you're leaving
Gm                                     D#
My belly hurts and my heart is hardly beating right
                           Cm           F
I hate to beg but I'll try one last time

Chorus:
Don't tell me that it's over, the book of you and I
Now you've scribbled out my name
And you've erased my favorite lines
There were so many chapters that we never got to write
Like cereal for dinner and staying up all night
I remember where we started, I remember how you looked
But now I'm missing bits and pieces from the pages that you took
You never gave a reason, I'll forever wonder why
We never got to finish the book of you and I
