Em D C# A       
C G (x4)

[Verse 1]
C    G    C       G
Cath, she stands 
C             G                C  G
  With a well intentioned-man 
        C    G  C    G
But she can’t relax 
         C           G            C     G
With his hand on the small of her back

[Verse 2]
           C G        C       G
And as the flashbulbs burst, 
    C       G      C  G
She holds a smile 
     C             G     C  G
Like someone would hold 
  C             G  C  G
A crying child 

[Chorus]
Em                D         C# A       C            G  C  G
    And soon everybody will ask what became of you 
Em                      D     C#  A               C            G   C  G
    When your heart was dying fast and you didn’t know what to do 

C G (x4)

[Verse 3]
C    G   C      G
Cath, it seems 
         C               G             C  G 
That you live in someone else’s dream 
     C       G            C      G
In a hand-me-down wedding dress 
         C                    G         C          G
With the things that could’ve been, all repressed 

[Verse 4]
        C               G  C  G
But you said your vows 
        C                G  C  G
And you closed the door 
      C         G  C  G
On so many men 
             C               G  C  G   
Who would’ve loved you more 

[Chorus]
Em                D         C# A       C            G  C  G
    And soon everybody will ask what became of you 
Em                      D     C#  A               C            G   C  G
    When your heart was dying fast and you didn’t know what to do

Em               D             C# A             C              C/B  A
    The whispers that it won’t last roll up and down the pews 
Em                           D          C# A                  
    But if their hearts were dying that fast they’d have done 
                                               C            G  C  G
                                           the same as you 
                  C       G    C  G
And I’ve done the same as you

Em D End on: C#

Sry, but i think that that C# in the chorus is actually supposed to be just a C
