Death Cab for Cutie - I was once a loyal lover
The Open Door EP

standard tuning 
capo on 2nd


G                                  Em                   C
Well I have learned so very little, when these bones are old and brittle

G                                   Em                    C
I wait to talk when I should listen, I crowd mistakes with false revisions

G                                   Em                   C
All my friends are forward thinking, getting hitched and quitting drinking

G                                Em                 C
And I can feel them pulling away, as I'm resigned to stay the same

    G         D   Em   C    A
And you can't even begin to know

    G    D         Em      C        A        C
How many times I've told myself, "I told you so"



G                        Em                   C
I was once a loyal lover, whose lips did never seek another's

G                                      Em                      C
But now each love's more like a matchup, a blinding spark that burns out fast

G                                           Em                       C
And they all conclude with the same sentence, "I've never met someone more self-centered"

G                                      Em                 C
Who thinks that life with a nice girl's like waiting for a bus to work

    G         D   Em   C    A
And you can't even begin to know

    G    D         Em      C        A        C
How many times I've told myself, "I told you so"

    G         D   Em   C      A
And you can't even begin to believe

   G    D       Em          C      A      C
So many bridges engulfed in flames behind me



Em            C         G                D
If you deem it so, just cut the cord and go

Em        C             G                  D
You'll be fine, there's plenty of hills to climb


    G         D   Em   C    A
And you can't even begin to know

    G    D         Em      C        A        C
How many times I've told myself, "I told you so"

    G         D   Em   C      A
And you can't even begin to believe

   G    D       Em          C      A      C
So many bridges engulfed in flames behind me  [x2]
