Bm  F#  G  D  Em (x2)


  Bm                      F#
I saved every letter you wrote me
G                  D
From the moment I read them
  Em             Bm
I knew you were mine
You said you were mine
                   G     D  Em
I thought you were mine

Bm                 F#
Do you know what Angelica said
         G                     D       Em
When we saw your first letter arrive?

She said

Bm               F# 
“Be careful with that one, love
        G                      D      
He will do what it takes to survive.”

Em            Bm               F#          
You and your words flooded my senses
      G                    D
Your sentences left me defenseless
Em             Bm             F#
You built me palaces out of paragraphs
             G        D  Em
You built cathedrals
         Bm                     F#
I’m re-reading the letters you wrote me
      G                          D
I’m searching and scanning for answers
    Em    Bm 
In every line
For some kind of sign
And when you were mine

The world seemed to

D  Bm  F#m  G7
D  Bm  F#m  G7

     Bm                        F#
You published the letters she wrote you
    G                             D
You told the whole world how you brought
           Em      Bm
This girl into our bed
                 F#                         G     D  Em 
In clearing your name, you have ruined our lives
Bm                 F#           G
Do you know what Angelica said
                          D     Em
When she read what you’d done?
She said
“You have married an Icarus
        G                     D
He has flown too close to the sun.”

Em            Bm                        F#
You and your words, obsessed with your legacy...
       G                    D
Your sentences border on senseless
Em           Bm                F#
And you are paranoid in every paragraph
How they perceive you

You, you, you…
     Bm                      F#
I’m erasing myself from the narrative
     G                  D         Em
Let future historians wonder how Eliza
Bm                        F#
Reacted when you broke her heart
You have torn it all apart

I am watching it

D  Bm  F#m  G7
            D   Bm  F#m  G7
Watching it burn
                 A             D
The world has no right to my heart
The world has no place in our bed
      Bm7                      G7
They don’t get to know what I said
     A             D
I’m burning the memories
             F#m/C#                  Bm7
Burning the letters that might have redeemed you
      G7          A           D
You forfeit all rights to my heart
You forfeit the place in our bed
     Bm7                   G7
You sleep in your office instead
      A         D
With only the memories
             F#m/C#   Bm  G
Of when you were mine
                 Bm  F#  G  D Em  Bm9 
I hope that you burn

Does anyone know the strum pattern?

I just kind of strummed once on most of them and then twice or three times as it speeds up at the end. It seems to work pretty well.
