Welcome to this Empty Space Guitar Tutorial by James Arthur!

This is an incredibly simple song to play with basically one chord progression played the whole way through the song, the only exception to this is in the prechorus. This is a great song for beginners! There is one small detail to consider when playing this song which is the palm muting in the verses, this really adds a nice dynamic to the verse and makes the chorus really pop when the full strumming comes in!

[Verse 1]
C
I don't see you
C
You're not in every window I look through
    C/B
And I don't miss you
C/B
You're not in every single thing I do
        F
I don't think we're meant to be
            G
And you are not the missing piece

[Verse 2]
C
I won't hear it
C
Whenever anybody says your name
    C/B
And I won't feel it
C/B
Even when I'm burstin' into flames
           F
I don't regret the day I left
          G
I don't believe that I was blessed

[Prechorus]
             F                      G
I'm probably lyin' to myself, again

[Chorus]
C
I'm alone in my head
C                       C/B
Looking for love in a stranger's bed
C/B
But I don't think I'll find it
       F              G
'Cause only you could fill this empty space
C
I wanna tell all my friends
C                            C/B
But I don't think they would understand
C/B
It's somethin' l've decided
       F              G
'Cause only you could fill this empty space

[Post-Chorus]
C
Space, space
C                C/B
This empty space
C/B
Space, space
This—
       F              G
'Cause only you could fill this empty space

[Verse 3]
C
I've been drinking
C
I've been doin' things I shouldn't do
C/B
Overthinking
C/B
I don't know who I am without you
      F
I'm a liar and a cheat
         G
I let my ego swallow me

[Prechorus]
               F                           G
And that's why I might never see you again

[Chorus]
C
I'm alone in my head
C                       C/B
Looking for love in a stranger's bed
C/B
But I don't think I'll find it
       F              G
'Cause only you could fill this empty space
C
I wanna tell all my friends
C                            C/B
But I don't think they would understand
C/B
It's somethin' l've decided
       F              G
'Cause only you could fill this empty space

[Post-Chorus]
C
Space, space
C                C/B
This empty space
C/B
Space, space
This—
       F              G
'Cause only you could fill this empty space
