Verse 1:
          F           C
"I don't love you anymore"
          Dm             Bb
a pretty line that I adore
     F               C       Dm     Dsus4
Five words that I've heard before
            F            C
'Cause you keep me on a rope
             Dm               Bb
And tied a noose around my throat
        F             C      Dm     Dsus4
You're gone then back at my door
 
 
Pre-Chorus:
                 F                                 Am
'Cause if you're gonna leave, better leave, better do it fast
      Dm                           Bb
Can't live a little longer sitting on your lap
       F                                      Am
'Cause you know what you're doin' when you're comin' back
    Dm                         Bb
And I don't wanna have another heart attack
 
 
Chorus:
    -nc-
Oh, I can't be your lover on a leash
                  Dm       Bb
Every other week, when you please
    F Am     Dm     Bb                   F
Oh, I can't be the kiss that you don't need
    Am                Dm
The lie between your teeth
 
 
Post-Chorus:
    Bb               F
The cut that always bleeds
Am      Dm

Verse 2:
        F             Am
Say you love somebody new
             Dm                 Bb
Then beat my heart to black and blue
          F               Am           Dm       Bb
Then they leave, and it's me you come back to -Ah-ah-
           F            Am
To say you loved me all along
             Dm                   Bb
And kiss the bruises 'til they're gone
      F                     Am                   Dm       Bb
Bittersweet, 'cause I can't breathe inside your arms
 
 
Pre-Chorus:
                 F                                 Am
'Cause if you're gonna leave, better leave, better do it fast
      Dm                           Bb
Can't live another minute bleedin' from my back
       F                                   Am
'Cause I don't have another one for you to stab

And I don't wanna have another heart attack

The lie between your teeth
