Intro: Cm7  Ab  Fm  Ab    
      
Verse:         
Cm7                         Ab  
    Close enough to start a war
        Fm             Ab
All that I have is on the floor
Cm7                                    Ab
    God only knows what we're fighting for
        Fm                Ab
All that I say, you always say more

Pre-Chorus:
Ab                         Fm      Fm7
I can't keep up with your turning tables
      Ab                   Bb
Under your thumb, I can't breathe

Chorus:
  Cm7      Ab       Eb               Fm
So I won't let you close enough to hurt me
   Cm7      Ab      Eb             Fm
No, I won't rescue you to just desert me
         Cm7   Ab               Eb      Bb
I can't give you the heart you think you gave me
             Fm  Eb   Ab               Cm7    Ab
It's time to say goodbye to turning tables
           Fm  Ab
To turning tables

Verse:
Cm7                         Ab
     Under haunted skies I see you, oooh
Fm                                  Ab
      Where love is lost, your ghost is found
Cm7                           Ab
     I braved a hundred storms to leave you
               Fm                           Ab
As hard as you try, no I will never be knocked down

Pre-Chorus:
Ab                         Fm      Fm7
I can't keep up with your turning tables
      Ab                   Bb
Under your thumb, I can't breathe

Chorus:
  Cm7      Ab       Eb               Fm
So I won't let you close enough to hurt me
   Cm7      Ab      Eb             Fm
No, I won't rescue you to just desert me
         Cm7   Ab               Eb      Bb
I can't give you the heart you think you gave me
             Fm  Eb   Ab               Cm7    Ab
It's time to say goodbye to turning tables
         Fm  Ab
Turning tables

Bridge:
Cm7                       Ab
Next time I'll be braver, I'll be my own saviour
Eb                            Fm
When the thunder calls for me
Cm7                       Ab
Next time I'll be braver, I'll be my own saviour
Eb                       Bb
Standing on my own two feet

Chorus:
Cm7      Ab       Eb               Fm
 I won't let you close enough to hurt me
   Cm7      Ab      Eb             Fm
No, I won't rescue you to just desert me
         Cm7   Ab               Eb         Bb
I can't give you the heart you think you gave me
             Fm  Eb   Ab               Cm7    Ab
It's time to say goodbye to turning tables
            Fm  Ab
To turning tables
       Cm7         Ab
Turning tables, yeah
  Fm   Ab   - Cm7  -
Turning, ooh.

  1. strumming pattern anyone?

  2. If you transpose it to -3 Am sounds much better than Am7 :))

  3. Adele Fan

    The lyrics are ‘what you think you gave me’ not ‘the heart you think you gave me’

  4. instead of chord CM7 play CM

  5. I transposed it to +4 and the chords are so much easier!

  7. YOU’RE STUPID -3 IS EASY NOT -1 HEHEHEHHE

  8. -1 is good!

  9. -1 is easy and sounds ok with or without capo
