a pretty line that I adore
     G               D       Em     Esus4
Five words that I've heard before

'Cause you keep me on a rope
             Em               C
And tied a noose around my throat
        G             D      Em     Esus4
You're gone then back at my door

Can't live a little longer sitting on your lap
       G                                      Bm
'Cause you know what you're doin' when you're comin' back

The lie between your teeth

        G             Bm
Say you love somebody new

Bittersweet, 'cause I can't breathe inside your arms

      Em                           C
Can't live another minute bleedin' from my back
       G                                   Bm

And I don't wanna have another heart attack
