Verse 1 :  
G                          
Well, it all began in the back of her car
D/F#  Em                  C      
I was just sixteen, but I fell so hard
                         
Well, the years went by and she held my heart
D/F#    Em                  C    
But her love ran dry and we fell apart                            
                            
Pre Chorus : 
D                   Em       
I felt her growing distant
                        
I knew her love was shifting
                            
And all that I could say was                            
                            
Chorus : 
                         
Don't tell me that it's over, the book
of you and I
D/F#       Em                   
Now you've scribbled out my name
                            
And you've erased my favorite lines
      C                                        
There were so many chapters that
     C/B
we never got to write 
      Am                   D
Like cereal for dinner and staying up all night
     G                      
I remember where we started,

I remember how you looked
    D/F#    Em                
But now I'm missing bits and pieces

from the pages that you took
                                     
You didn't give a reason, and
            C/B
I'll forever wonder why
    Am                     D                G
We never got to finish the book of you and I                            
                            
Verse 2 : 
                         
Well, I bought a pen and I turned the page
D/F#    Em               C      
Then I wrote about how I wish you'd stayed
       G                     
I said all the things that I never got to say
D/F#  Em                      
Maybe when it's done I will feel okay
                            
Pre Chorus : 
D                     Em      
But she had grown so distant
                          
And that her love had shifted
                            
I wish she felt the same
                            
Chorus : 
       G                     
Don't tell me that it's over, the book of you and I
D/F#       Em                   
Now you've scribbled out my name
                            
And you've erased my favorite lines
                                                 C/B
There were so many chapters that we never

got to write
      Am                   D  
Like cereal for dinner and staying up all night
                          
I remember where we started,

I remember how you looked
    D/F#    Em                 
But now I'm missing bits and pieces

from the pages that you took
                                     
You never gave a reason, and
           C/B
I'll forever wonder why
   Am                      D               G
We never got to finish the book of you and I
                            
Bridge : 
G                           
Don't tell me, tell me that you're leaving
Em                                   C
My belly hurts and my heart is hardly beating right
                           D
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
D/F#        Em                    
Now you've scribbled out my name
                            
And you've erased my favorite lines
      C                                    
There were so many chapters
         C/B
that we never got to write
     Am                    D  
Like cereal for dinner and staying up all night
                          
I remember where we started,

I remember how you looked
   D/F#     Em                      
But now I'm missing bits and pieces

from the pages that you took
    C                                   
You never gave a reason, and
          C/B
I'll forever wonder why 
    Am                     D               G
We never got to finish the book of you and I

He is considered to be a self-made artist.
