The x'ed note is on the ninth fret; it's just very muted.


B/D#  E    B/F#  E/G#  A   E/G#  B/F#  E
You   said some  thing be  fore  you   left
B/D#  E     B/F#  E/G#  A   E/G#  B/F#  E
Some  thing I     was   not to    for   get

Then
                                       E 
Is when I maybe should have wrote it down
                                   F#7
But when I looked around to find a pen
                                      A    B7
And then I tried to think of what you said

B   E  D    A/C#      B   E  D
        We broke in two
A/C#   B E D A/C#
Busted through
         B E D 
Broke in two

A/C#         F#m         B        E        C#m
I would go back to the top of the day from scratch
       A                F#m7            B7
If I thought that this thing could be fixed
A        B      G#m   C#m        F#m7  F#7/B            
Though sadly I'd do exactly the same thing as when

B   E  D    A/C#      B   E  D
        We broke in two
A/C#   B E D A/C#
Busted through
         B E D 
Broke in two

(solo)

B/D#  E      B/F# E/G#  A   E/G#  B/F#  E
You   said, "I'm  gon   na  run   you   down"
B/D#  E       B/F#  E/G#  A   E/G#  B/F#  E
I     heard, "I'm   an    o   ran   gu    tan"
