Hello

 

VERSE
Hello , it’s  me       [A]
I was wondering if after all these years you’d like to  meet         [A]
To go  over  everything         [B]
They say that time’s supposed to heal ya, but I ain’t done much  healing .        [B]

VERSE
Hello , can you hear  me ?        [A]
I’m in California dreaming about who we used to  be .        [A]
When we were younger – and  free .        [A]
I’ve forgotten how it felt before the world fell at our  feet .        [A]

PRE-CHORUS
There’s such a  difference         [C]
Between  us  – and a million  miles .        [C]/[D]

CHORUS
Hello  from the other  side         [D]
I must’ve called a thousand  times         [D]
To tell you I’m sorry for everything that I’ve  done ,        [E]
but when I call, you never seem to be  home         [E]

Hello  from the  outside         [D]
At least I can say that I’ve  tried         [D]
To tell you I’m sorry for breaking your  heart ,        [F]
But it don’t matter, it clearly doesn’t tear you  apart         [F]
Anymore.         [E]

VERSE
Hello , how are  you ?
It’s so typical of me to talk about myself I’m  sorry .
I  hope  that you’re  well .
Did you ever make it out of that  town  Where nothing ever  happened ?!

PRE-CHORUS
It’s  no  secret[/su_highlight]        [C]
That the  both  of us –  are running out of  time .       [D]

CHORUS
Hello  from the other  side         [D]
I must’ve called a thousand  times         [D]
To tell you I’m sorry for everything that I’ve  done ,        [E]
but when I call, you never seem to be  home         [E]

Hello  from the  outside         [D]
At least I can say that I’ve  tried         [D]
To tell you I’m sorry for breaking your  heart ,        [F]
But it don’t matter, it clearly doesn’t tear you  apart         [F]
Anymore.         [E]

MUSICAL BREAK
Ooooohh, anymore
Ooooohh, anymore
Ooooohh, anymore
Anymore

CHORUS
Hello  from the other  side         [D]
I must’ve called a thousand  times         [D]
To tell you I’m sorry for everything that I’ve  done ,        [E]
but when I call, you never seem to be  home         [E]

Hello  from the  outside         [D]
At least I can say that I’ve  tried         [D]
To tell you I’m sorry for breaking your  heart ,        [F]
But it don’t matter, it clearly doesn’t tear you  apart         [F]
Anymore.         [E]
