  Come on skinny love just last the year.
                                  Pour a little salt we were never here.

  My my my my my my my my my my my my,
                                   Staring at the sink of blood and crushed veneer.
                           
  Am      F       C               Am     F       C           G

  (I) tell my love to wreck it all,
                                  Cut out all the ropes and let me fall.

  Am      F       C               Dm      Am

  And I told you to be patient,
                                   And I told you to be fine.
  And I told you to be balanced,
                                   And I told you to be kind.

  C                G      Am      C               G       Am

  And in the morning I'll be with you,
                                   But it will be a different kind.
  Cause I'll be holding all the tickets,
                                   And you'll be holding all the fines.

  And now all your love is wasted,
                                   And who the hell was I?
  Cause now I'm breaking at the britches,
                                   And and the end of all your lies.

Excellent tab thank you - small correction: outro 5th chord should be labelled as Am not C but the actual tab is fine.
