       Am
Let me hold you
        Am/C
For the last time
         Am/F                 Am/F
It's the last chance to feel again
        Am                
But you broke me
      Am/C          Am/F          Am/F
Now I can't feel anything


       Am
When I love you, it's so untrue
        F
I can't even convince myself
         Am
When I'm speaking,
         C                F       Dm
It's the voice of someone else


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

    
          Dm             Am
You can't play on broken strings
          C       G
You can't feel anything
          Dm                  Am
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
    Am
And lies worse
    C             G
How can I give anymore
       Dm                Am
When I love you a little less 
     G
than before


   Am          C
Oh what are we doing
   F
We are turning into dust
        Am           C        F   Dm
Playing house in the ruins of us


        Am               C
Running back through the fire
          F
When there's nothing left to save
          Am               C
It's like chasing the very last train
          F          Dm
when it's too late

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


          Dm             Am
You can't play on broken strings
          C       G
You can't feel anything
          Dm                  Am
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
    Am
And lies worse
    C             G
How can I give anymore
       Dm                Am
When I love you a little less 
     G
than before


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


          Dm             Am
You can't play on broken strings
          C       G
You can't feel anything
          Dm                  Am
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
    Am
And lies worse
    C             G
How can I give anymore
       Dm                Am
When I love you a little less 
     G
than before
      Dm                Am
When I love you a little less 
     G
than before


       Am                    C
Let me hold you for the last time
         G                   F
It's the last chance to feel again
