Repeat Intro Riff:
              C         Dm
And what did he do to deserve
     Am                  C           CM9             F
This whore of a wife who parades her disgrace to his face now
        Am                        C            CM9           F
When he loved her and gave up his life in more ways than she knows how
    G          G
And all I can say is that

Chorus:
C                  Am                      Dm
Love is a terrible art, it’s a hook in the heart
                     G
That can drag you on broken glass
           C                          Am
And as you protest the shards in your flesh
                        Dm                        G           …Am
The hook tears out your chest until you’re just a broken mess

Verse:
         C           Dm
Where is God in this rot?
  Am                          C          CM9                 F
Depraved she commits the most heinous of sins and breaks her vows
       Am                        C          CM9            F
But he loves her despite all the crimes she devises in his house
         C              Dm
Where is God? I’ve been taught
          Am                        C           CM9         F
That He’s close to the broken, it's true I have spoken with Him some
       Am                        C         CM9            F
When I look in my brother's eyes I can see where his love comes from
    G          G 
And all he can say is that

Chorus:
C                  Am                      Dm
Love is a terrible art, it’s a hook in the heart
                     G
That can drag you on broken glass
           C                          Am
And as you protest the shards in your flesh
                        Dm                        G           
The hook tears out your chest until you’re just a broken mess


Bridge:
    F            G                 C
But she has mercy on her lover and does not bleed him dry
  F             C                       G
A credit to his self control if it were me that monster would probably die

Chorus 2:
C                   Am                             Dm
Love is a beautiful thing, she can make your heart sing
            G
When you’re walking on broken glass
                   C                          Am
She will open your eyes, make your heart feel alive
                     Dm
Point you toward the sunrise
                        G
Help you leave all this broken mess behind

Outro:          4x
F    G              Em
Love is a beautiful thing
Dm                  C                 G
Will you leave this broken mess behind?

Amazing Chord guide! However, I would say that the first G in the line before the Chorus would sound better if replaced with a B7. Also, the second C is the chorus would sound better if replaced with an Em.
