Heartbreak Warfare
Artist: John Mayer
Album: Battle Studies

Note: This TAB is the result of studying several online videos
of John playing this song at different live shows. Most of this
TAB shows only basic chord structures. Keep in mind that John
embellishes on a lot of the chords, using hammer-ons and pull-
offs.Just listen to the live recordings to get a better feel
for all of these "little things".

Here are two videos you can use for reference:

*BRIDGE: EASY VERSION*
(Note: The very first time John played this song, he used simpler
chords during the bridge. These chords will work as well, and are
a lot easier.)

a) Pre-Bridge

F: 1x3211
C: x32010
G: 3x0033

(Play this chord progression 4 times, then...)

b) Bridge

F                                                           G
  How come the only way to know how high you get me, is to see
  how far I fall?

F                                                            G
  God only knows how much I'd love you if you let me, but I can't
  break through at all.

Lyrics:

Lightning strike
Inside my chest to keep me up at night
Dream of ways
To make you understand my pain

Clouds of sulfur in the air
Bombs are falling everywhere
It's heartbreak warfare

Once you want it to begin
No one really ever wins
In heartbreak warfare

If you want more love, why don't you say so?
If you want more love, why don't you say so?

Drop his name
Push it in and twist the knife again
Watch my face
As I pretend to feel no pain

Clouds of sulfur in the air
Bombs are falling everywhere
It's heartbreak warfare

Once you want it to begin
No one really ever wins
In heartbreak warfare

If you want more love, why don't you say so?
If you want more love, why don't you say so?

Just say so...

How come the only way to know how high you get me
Is to see how far I fall?
God only knows how much I'd love you if you let me
But I can't break through at all

I don't care if we don't sleep at all tonight
Let's just fix this whole thing now
I swear to God we're gonna get it right
If you lay your weapon down

Red wine and Ambien
You're talking shit again
It's heartbreak warfare

Good to know it's all a game
Disappointment has a name
It's heartbreak warfare
