[Verse 1]

       Bbm
Let me hold you
        C#
For the last time
         F#
It's the last chance to feel again
        Bbm
But you broke me
      C#            F#     D#m
Now I can't feel anything
       Bbm
When I love you,
        C#
It's so untrue
  F#
I can't even convince myself
         Bbm
When I'm speaking,
         C#               F#   D#m
It's the voice of someone else


[Pre-Chorus]

      F#    G# Bbm
Oh it tears me up
  F#          G#         Fm
I try to hold on, but it hurts too much
  F#        G#             Fm            F#              C#
I try to forgive, but it's not enough to make it all okay


[Chorus]

          D#m            Bbm
You can't play on broken strings
          C#      G#
You can't feel anything 
          D#m                 Bbm
That your heart don't want to feel
        C#                            G#
I can't tell you something that ain't real
       F#    
Oh the truth hurts
    Bbm  
And lies worse
C#                G#
How can I give anymore
       D#m               Bbm       G#
When I love you a little less than before


[Verse 2]

        Bbm    C#
Oh what are we doing
       F#
We are turning into dust
        Bbm          C#       F#   D#m
Playing house in the ruins of us
        Bbm              C#
Running back through the fire
             F#
When there's nothing left to save
          Bbm              C#                       F#   D#m
It's like chasing the very last train when it's too late


[Pre-Chorus]

      F#    G# Bbm
Oh it tears me up
  F#          G#         Fm
I try to hold on, but it hurts too much
  F#        G#             Fm            F#              C#
I try to forgive, but it's not enough to make it all okay


[Chorus]

          D#m            Bbm
You can't play on broken strings
          C#      G#
You can't feel anything 
          D#m                 Bbm
That your heart don't want to feel
        C#                            G#
I can't tell you something that ain't real
       F#    
Oh the truth hurts
    Bbm  
And lies worse
C#                G#
How can I give anymore
       D#m               Bbm       G#
When I love you a little less than before


[Verse 3]

          Bbm                 C#
But we're running through the fire
             F#
When there's nothing left to save
          Bbm                   C#
It's like chasing the very last train
        F#                       D#m
When we both know it's too late (too late)


[Chorus]

          D#m            Bbm
You can't play on broken strings
          C#      G#
You can't feel anything 
          D#m                 Bbm
That your heart don't want to feel
        C#                            G#
I can't tell you something that ain't real
       F#    
Well the truth hurts
    Bbm  
And lies worse
C#                G#
How can I give anymore
       D#m               Bbm       G#
When I love you a little less than before
       D#m               Bbm       G#
Oh when I love you a little less than before


[Outro]

       Bbm              C#
Let me hold you for the last time
         F#                   D#m
It's the last chance to feel again

i would suggest putting a capo on 1 and then to move the chords down a semitone if you get tired of barring all the way through. good tab though
