Verse:
Ebm7                            B
Still got the flowers that you sent
        Gb                               Db
And the note you wrote that said we're meant to be forever
Ebm7                        B
I keep them all as evidence
      Gb                                    Db
In a drawer under the mirror, filled with empty promises
Abm7
I don't know why
       Ebm7
I keep letting you lie to me
Gb
Hard as I try
           Db
It seems I can't break away
               Ebm7
I thought that you would be the hero
         B
Come and save the day
                  Gb
But you're a villain
                  Db
Your sins unforgiven

Chorus:
          Ebm7                                B
I'm going down, and you have watched me drown
              Gb                        Db
In a river of tears, lost beneath the stream
          Ebm7                                   B
Under the waves, I've found the strength to say
              Gb                    Db
The river of tears has washed me clean
Abm7
Go 'head and wish me well
Ebm
I'll cry a wishing well
Gb
I'll fly before I fail
Db                       Ebm7
I'll set sail and drift away
                       B
So I won't need you here
                         Gb
Love sinks and hope floats
                  Db
In a river of tears

In a river of tears

Verse:
Ebm7                         B
I catch your scent in every wind
         Gb         
And I recall the love we had
         Db             Ebm7
I can't pretend that I 
                             B
Don't miss you every now and then
        Gb
But the hurt is for the better
        Db
Moving on, it's now or never
Abm7                            Ebm7
Lost in the tide, I can't keep my pillows dry
               Gb
Like there's a sea in my eyes
      Db                                   Ebm7
I realise that sometimes love brings you flowers
                     B
Then it builds you coffins
               Gb
And far too often
                  Db
We end up falling to our demise

Chorus:
          Ebm7                                B
I'm going down, and you have watched me drown
              Gb                        Db
In a river of tears, lost beneath the stream
          Ebm7                                   B
Under the waves, I've found the strength to say
              Gb                    Db
The river of tears has washed me clean
Abm7
Go 'head and wish me well
Ebm
I'll cry a wishing well
Gb
I'll fly before I fail
Db                       Ebm7
I'll set sail and drift away
                       B
So I won't need you here
                         Gb
Love sinks and hope floats
                  Db
In a river of tears

In a river of tears

Bridge:
Ebm7       Db           Gb
Cry me a river, build myself a Bridge
         Abm7           B
I'm over this, can't let memories become the death of me
            Ebm7        Db            Gb
I'm glad to see everything that you are
         Abm7               B
And I believe that you are everything I needed

But I don't need no more

Chorus:
Ebm7                                          B
I'm going down, and you have watched me drown
              Gb                        Db
In a river of tears, lost beneath the stream
          Ebm7                                   B
Under the waves, I've found the strength to say
              Gb                    Db
The river of tears has washed me clean
Abm7
Go 'head and wish me well
Ebm
I'll cry a wishing well
Gb
I'll fly before I fail
Db                       Ebm7
I'll set sail and drift away
                       B
So I won't need you here
                         Gb
Love sinks and hope floats
                  Db
In a river of tears

In a river of tears
