Verse:
Am      C  F
I wanna be alone
Am                   C         F
Alone with you, does that make sense?
Am      C          F
I wanna steal your soul
    Am             C        F
And hide you in my treasure chest

Verse:
Am           C       F
I don't know what to do
   Am                C     F
To do with your kiss on my neck
Am           C          F
I don't know what feels true
    Am                  C      F
But this feels right so stay a sec
      Am                C      F
Yeah, you feel right so stay a sec

Chorus:
           E7                F
And let me crawl inside your veins
             E7                        F
I'll build a wall, give you a ball and chain

              Dm
It's not like me to be so mean
             F
You're all I wanted
            Dm   F
Just let me hold you
       Am C F Am C F
like a hostage

Verse:
Am           C     F
Gold on your fingertips
Am         C          F
Fingertips against my cheek
Am         C          F
Gold leaf across your lips
Am            C       F
Kiss me until I can't speak

Verse:
Am           C          F
Gold chain beneath your shirt
    Am                 C       F
The shirt that you let me wear home
Am              C         F
Gold's fake and real love hurts
    Am                 C   F
And nothing hurts when I'm alone
     Am                 C     F
When you're with me and we're alone

Chorus:
           E7                F
And let me crawl inside your veins
             E7                        F
I'll build a wall, give you a ball and chain
              Dm
It's not like me to be so mean
             F
You're all I wanted
            Dm   F
Just let me hold you
Dm   F
Hold you
       Am C F
Like a hostage
       Am C F 
Like a hostage

  1. Thanks! Sounds EXACTLY right at 0 and is really easy. Personally, instead of F on the very last “hold you”, I play E7. The actual song is just down on each chord once, no strumming pattern required. The “like a hostage” part is played just like the verses ((Am for 2 beats, C for 1 beat, F for 1 beat, rest for 3 beats)).

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
