[Verse 1]
C#                C#7/Madd11+
Coming out of my cage 
                          F#
And I've been doin' just fine 

Gotta gotta be down 

Because I want it all 
C#                C#7/Madd11+
It started out with a kiss 
                       F#
How did it end up like this?
 
It was only a kiss 

It was only a kiss 
C#                C#7/Madd11+
Now I'm falling asleep 
                    F#
And she's calling a cab 

While he's having a smoke 

And she's taking a drag 
C#                C#7/Madd11+
Now they're going to bed 
                  F#
And my stomach is sick 
And it's all in my head 

[Pre-Chorus]
                        A#m
But she's touching his chest now 
                   G#
He takes off her dress now 
        F#
Let me go 
A#m 
And I just can't look 
      G#
It's killing me 
      F#m
And taking control 

[Chorus]
C#
Jealousy 
F#               A#m
Turning saints into the sea 
G#                        C#
Swimming through sick lullabies 
F#                 A#m
Choking on your alibis 
G#                   C#
But it's just the price I pay 
F#             A#m
Destiny is calling me 
G#          C#    F#
Open up my eager eyes 
A#m           G#
Cause I'm Mr. Brightside

The chords are played on a keyboard, the guitar keeps playing the intro riff.
