Gsus [320010] 


STANDARD TUNING W/
CAPO ON 2


[Verse]

                 C
I can taste salt water
C/B                
And if I blink again
         Am
We'll be sinking in
        Gsus                               C
So I'll learn to swim in the oceans you made
            C/B                       Am  
I'll hold ya and you'll think of him
    Gsus                               F
And pretty soon you'll be floating away


[Pre-Chorus]

                       C/B                 Am   
And I'll hold on to the words you spoke of
              C                 F           
Anchored down in my throat, love
                        Gsus             Am   -stop
And I'm captain of this sinking boat now
With just one armband to carry me home


[Chorus]

C
 When salted tears won't dry
     Am           F
I'll wipe my shirtsleeve
Gsus       C
Under your eyes
These hearts will be flooded tonight
     Am           F              
I'll wipe my shirtsleeves
Gsus       C
Under your eyes
Your eyes
Your eyes
Your eyes 
Your eyes
    Am     F
Your  eyes


[Verse]   
              
            -stop  C     C/B 
I still taste salt water
                           Am          
On my lips from your kiss, bitterness
      Gsus                           C
And I drown within the oceans you made
                   C/B                                          Am
And I hate to love you, these cuffs are covered in your make-up
                          Gsus
I'll never trust you again
                  F
You can just be a friend


[Pre-Chorus]

                       C/B                Am   
And I'll hold on to the words you spoke of
              C                 F           
Anchored down in my throat, love
                        Gsus             Am   -stop
And I'm captain of this sinking boat now
With just one armband to carry me home


[Chorus]

C
 When salted tears won't dry
     Am           F
I'll wipe my shirtsleeve
Gsus       C
Under your eyes
These hearts will be flooded tonight
     Am           F              
I'll wipe my shirtsleeve
Gsus       C
Under your eyes


(C)                   Gsus
Your eyes, your lips, your mouth
                    Am
Your thighs, your back, you drive me wild
  F                    C
Tonight, the fact is I'm
              Gsus
I'm on my way home
           Am   F
On the way home
                   C        Gsus
I lied, I tried to cry but I'm 
    C               F-once     C(8) Am(4) F(4)  ='( )' How many beats each chord is played
I'm drowning in the oceans you made


          [xx0210]
C(8) Am(3) Am/D(1) F(3)


[Chorus]

     C
When salted tears won't dry
     Am           F
I'll wipe my shirtsleeve
Gsus       C
Under your eyes
These hearts will be flooded tonight
     Am           F              
I'll wipe my shirtsleeve
Gsus       C
Under your eyes
Your eyes
Your eyes
Your eyes 
Your eyes
    Am      F..stop
Your  eyes



Have fun!

This is kind of far-fetched, but I play
e|------|
B|-1----|
G|------|
D|--2---|
A|---2--|
E|------|

in place of E7 and I don't even know what chord that is, but it sounds more right to me :)

Hi :) I had forgotten that E7 bugged me. Thanks for reminding me. So playing it I think it's this- [x20010] Which I'm calling C/B (not 100% sure that's the correct name.) I think it needed the open D string (like in the E7 [x20100]) but the 1 (1st fret G string) needed to be on the B string (like your suggestion.) All fixed :) Thanks!

No problem, thank you!
By the way, if you get the app Guitar Toolkit, it has a tuner and a chord guide and you can also put in chord shapes and it tells you what the chord is called! It's $2.99, which is a lot, but it's worth it, and it could help you with chord names :)
