I Call Your Name

INTRO: 
Am / C / F / E // Am / C / F / E

Am                    C         Em
I go to sleep, I wake alone,
Am                               C                Em
I hear your voice, but you’re not home.
Am                              C           Em
I laugh and smile, like I don’t care,
Am                              C                Em
I call your name, but you’re not there.


Am                        C          Em
At night I cook, I eat for two,
Am                               C       Em
My body aches, what can I do?
Am                             C        Em
I dream of what can never be,
Am                            E
I loved you but you still left me.

BREAK
Am / C / F / E // Am / C / F / E

You wrote a note, but I don’t know,
Forget the past, and let it go?
Still I remember, though I try, 
I cannot help but wonder, “Why?”

The things I feel are deep inside, 
They tell a truth, I try to hide.
My love for you, goes on and on, 
It hurts so much, I wrote this song.


BRIDGE
      Am                       
F

The signs you left are with me still,
   E                    Am
A dying rose up on the hill;
                            F
An empty bottle of shampoo;
   E                            Am            (etc...)
I love you so, what can I do?
Your toothbrush and a statuette; 
Your cards and letters; cigarettes;
A love song I no longer sing; 
And in my hand, a broken ring.
I wake up tired, walk into walls, 
Outside the window, thunder squalls.
You know I miss your flashing smile, 
And yes, I miss you all the while
I look into your sky blue eyes, 
And once again I’m hypnotised,
I still miss your funny laugh, 
And sleep with your old photograph.

Am                    C         Em
I go to sleep, I wake alone,
Am                               C                Em
I hear your voice, but you’re not home.
Am                              C           Em
I laugh and smile, like I don’t care,
Am                              C                Em
I call your name, but you’re not there.
Am                             C                Em
I call your name, but you’re not there.
   Am                           E

I call your name, and you’re not there.


        Am                     F
And I call your name, you’re not there.
