[Verse 1] 3 ways to play along to the verse:


        F#m              Bm
I tried hard to make you want me
          Bm              E
But we're not supposed to be
        F#m                C#
And the truth will always haunt me
                      E
Even though it set me free
       F#m                  Bm
And my tears fall like the ocean
                       Em
As they floated in the breeze
          F#m              D
They were falling in slow motion
         D                C#
And they brought me to my knees

[Pre-Chorus] 

Tempo picks up. Add light distortion, strum chords
Can play the high or low (makes for good harmony with 2 guitars) 


       F#m                       E        
You're haunting me, taunting me all in my brain
B                         B

Turn off the light and now all that remains
F#m                         E

Fills me with doubt and I'm shouting your
B          B
name out loud
F#m                   E
Why do you wanna put me through the pain?
  B                   B
I get the feeling I'll never escape
Db                                  C#
I can't hide away from the shame of you

[Verse 2] Chug these chords


         F#m              B
When did you lose your emotion?
         A            C#
When did you become so cruel?
           F#m             B

And if you want to cut me open
       A                    C#        
Says a thousands words 'bout you
       F#m                 B
And in time I know you'll leave me
       A           C#
Like a distant memory
       F#m             B
I know love can be so easy
    A              C#
If I start by loving me, oh


[Pre-Chorus]

     F#m                       E        
You're haunting me, taunting me all in my brain
B                          B

Turn off the light and now all that remains
F#m                         E               B         B

Fills me with doubt and I'm shouting your name out loud
F#m                   E
Why do you wanna put me through the pain?
  B                    B
I get the feeling I'll never escape
Db                                  C#
I can't hide away from the shame of you
