Intro: C# B F# E

Verse: 
C#
Pardon me for saying so, but you look more pitiful
B
Than I had ever imagined, despite perfect fashion
C#
And your photographs depict you so differently.
B
I always thought you would be some sort of match for me.

C#        B      F#      E
So let's decide who can survive
C#                B               F#                E
Stomping feet and racing beats of hearts that don't ever slow.
C#        B      F#     E  
Then I'll write letters on
      C#       B           F#         E
White paper expressing my deep dissapointment. 

C#                             F#                                     
Dripping where I stand from my watery hands, 
                         C#
Hoping to get past the open bedroom door,
          F#                                          C#
Where her clothes on the floor remind me of our conversation,
                       F#
The feeling of slight hesitation to turn out the light.

C#                                    F#
Fourteen days now since we started to complicate the situation.
C#                                  F#
I'm not hiding I'm just buying some time for us to find the back door.

C#      B       F#         E
We will come out when it's safe for us.
C#         B
When it's safe for us..
F#        E         C# B F# E 
When it's safe for us
 C# B F# E
Ooh
     C# B F# E
For us
 C# B F# E
Ooh

Outro:
C#                                        
There's nothing left to say 
F#
To excuse the way that I've behaved.
C#
I still feel him gripping like a stain 
F#
To this fabric, torn at every seam,
E
Then thrown away

E                 B                 C#                            
Why should I take all the blame for my mistakes? 
E                   B             C#
You were there with every promise made to break.
E              B                C#                       
When did you become the one without regret?
E                B               C#
Kill me, burn me down, I swear I won't forget.

E              B                C#                       
When did you become the one without regret?
E                B               C#
Kill me, burn me down, I swear I won't forget.

The chord you have labeled as E is actually A5. Theyre actually all 5 chords

Yeah sorry I don't really know guitar chords by name. I just played the chord out into a tuner and caught the pitch.
