STAY (I MISSED YOU) [by Lisa Loeb]
----------------------------------
[Actually in C#; capo 6.]

G(9)   Em7   Am7 - Bm   C
[intro; see tab at end]

G(9)      Em7                         Am7   Bm   C
   You say I only hear what I want to
G(9)          Em7                      Am7   Bm   C
   And you say I talk so all the time,    so
Am7                      G
   And I thought what I felt was simple
Am7                     G
   And I thought that I don't belong
Am7             G
   And now that I am leaving
Am7                  G                           C(9)
   Now I know that I did something wrong cause I missed you
Cm        Am7     G    (Gsus)   Am7   G
   Yeah, I missed you

G(9)          Em7                            Am7
   And you say I only hear what I want to, I don't listen hard
  Bm                         C                 
I don't pay attention to the distance that you're running or to
G
Anyone, anywhere
 Am7          Bm
I don't understand if you really care
    C(9)                            C(9)
I'm only hearing negative, no no no

     Am7                  G                     Am7
So I, I turned the radio on, I turned the radio up
                   G
And this woman was singing my song
    Am7                     G
The lover's in love and the other's run away
    Am7                       G
The lover is crying cause the other won't stay
Am7                         G                          Am7
   Some of us hover when we weep for the other who was dying
                        G        
Since the day they were born, well
     Am7               G                                  Am7    G
Well, this is not that, I think that I'm throwing but I'm thrown

      Am7                          Am7
And I thought I'd live forever but now I'm not so sure
           C(9)                        C(9)
You try to tell me that I'm clever but that won't take me anyhow
Am7           Bm      C(9)  C(9)
   Or anywhere with you

Am7                    G
   And you said that I was naive
   Am7                   G
And I thought that I was strong, oh
Am7                     G
   I thought "hey I can leave, I can leave"
 Am7                    G                   C(9)
Oh, but now I know that I was wrong cause I missed you
Cm        Am7     G    (Gsus)   Am7   G
   Yeah, I missed you

             Am7                                 Am7
You said you caught me cause you want me and one day you'll let me go
           C(9)                  C(9)
You try to take away a keeper or keep me cause you know
               Am7        Bm   C(9)  C(9)
You're just too scared to lose

            G(9)  Em7    Am7 - Bm  C
And you say,         stay
G(9)      Em7                         Am7 -  Bm   C.
   And you say I only hear what I want to


TAB:
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/l/lisa_loeb/stay_tab.html ]
I've transcribed two versions of the intro: the first one is
probably more accurate, the second is probably easier.  When I
play it, I play the G(9) the easy way and the rest the hard way.

accurate:

  G(9)             Em7              Am7     Bm       C
E --5-------------|----0-----------|----------------|------10--------|
B ----------------|---0------------|----5-------7---|---8--8---------|
G -7----7---------|--7-------7----0|--0-------0-----|--0-0-----------|
D 5---------------|-5--------5-----|----------------|----------------|
A ----------------|7---------7-----|----------------|----------------|
E ----------------|--------------0-|5-----5/7-----7/|8---------8-----|
  ^ . ^ . ^ . ^ .  ^ . ^ . ^ . ^ .  ^ . ^ . ^ . ^ .  ^ . ^ . ^ . ^ .  

easy:

  G(9)             Em7              Am7     Bm       C
E --5-------------|----0-----------|----0-------2---|---3--3---------|
B -3----3---------|--30------3-----|----------------|----------------|
G 0---------------|-0--------0----0|--0-------0-----|--0-0-----------|

Thanks for the chords, Laurent ... for those who are interested, here's
my tab for the intro and verses.  I've also made some minor corrections
to a couple of chords as pointed out by a previous follow-up post.
