Intro: G  D     Cadd9

G
  If it makes you less sad,
                   D   
I will die by your hand.

I hope you find out what you want.
                      Cadd9
I already know that I am.


G
 And if it makes you less sad,
                     D   
We'll start talking again.

And you can tell me how vile
                      Cadd9
I already know that I am.


G
 I'll grow old
                    D   
And start acting my age.

I'll be a brand new day
                   Cadd9
In a life that you hate.


G
 a crown of gold
                               D   
And a heart that's harder than stone.

And it hurts a whole lot,
                          Cadd9
But it's missed when it's gone.


G               D   
 Call me a safe bet.
                   Cadd9
But I bet that I'm not.
G                      D   
 I'm glad that you can forgive, 
                   Cadd9
I'm only hoping as time goes by

You can forget.

Interlude: G  D     Cadd9

G
 If it makes you less sad,
                     D   
I'll move out of the state.

You can keep to yourself,
                      Cadd9
I'll keep out of your way.


G
 And if it makes you less sad,
                            D   
I'll take your pictures all down.

Every picture you pain,
                    Cadd9
I will paint myself out.


G
 It's as cold as a tomb,
                      D   
And it's dark in your room,

When I sneak to your bed
                     Cadd9
To pour salt on your wounds.


G
 So call it quits,
         D   
Or get a grip.

You say you wanted a solution,
                          Cadd9
But you just wanted to be missed.


G               D   
 Call me a safe bet.
                    Cadd9
But I'm betting I'm not.
G                      D   
 I'm glad that you can forgive,
                    Cadd9
I'm only hoping as time goes by

That you can forget.

Interlude: G  D     Cadd9

G
 You are calm and reposed.
                    D   
It lets your beauty unfold.

Pale white like the skin
                    Cadd9
Stretched over your bones.


G
 Spring keeps you ever close.
                    D   
You are second hand smoke.

You are so fragile and thin.
                        Cadd9
Standing trial for your sins.


G
 Holding onto your self
             D   
The best you can.

You are the smell before rain.
                        Cadd9
You are the blood in my veins.

 
G               D   
 Call me a safe bet.
                Cadd9
I'm betting I'm not.
G                      D   
 I'm glad that you can forgive,
                   Cadd9
I'm only hoping as time goes
                      G
That you can forget.

  3. Celyn.jones

    The chords on the last couple of verses are off. Does anyone know the correct version?

    • not sure what chord it is! but! 2-2-2-2 sounds really nice on the ending verses. It winds it down nicely and works in the chorus. so use this in place of D maybe!
