Intro -x2-: Dbm E A B

Verse:
Dbm          B         E       A
Why should I play this game of pretend?
Dbm         B         E          A
Remembering through a secondhand sorrow?
Dbm          B       E         A
Such a great son and wonderful friend
   B         E          A
Oh don't the tears just pour


Dbm        B      E          A
I can curl up and hide in my room
Dbm         B         E       A
There in my bed still sobbing tomorrow
Dbm         B      E          A
I could give in to all of the gloom
B               E         B
But tell me, tell me what for

Pre-Chorus:
Gbm                          E   
Why should I have a heavy heart?
A                                   Dbm
Why should I start to break in pieces?
Gbm                    E            B
Why should I go and fall apart for you?

Chorus:
E
Why should I play the grieving girl and
B
Lie saying that I miss you
         Dbm               A                 B
And that my world has gone dark without your light
Gbm    E       Gb    A      Dbm
I will sing no requiem tonight

Interlude -x2-: Dbm E A B

Verse:
Dbm            B        Abm        A
I gave you the world, you threw it away,
Dbm           B      Abm           A
leaving these broken pieces behind you
Dbm        B        Abm        A
Everything wasted, nothing to say
    Gbm           B
So I can sing no requiem

Dbm         B      Abm      A
I hear your voice, feel you near
Dbm          B       Abm         A
Within these words I finally find you
Dbm            B         Abm          Gb
And now that I know that you are still here
  A            B
I will sing no requiem tonight

Pre-Chorus:
Gbm                          E   
Why should I have a heavy heart?
A                                   Dbm
Why should I say I'll keep you with me?
Gbm                    E            B
Why should I go and fall apart for you?

Chorus:
E
Why should I play the grieving girl and
B
Lie saying that I miss you
         Dbm               A                 B
And that my world has gone dark without your light
Gbm    E       Gb    A
I will sing no requiem
B
Tonight

Bridge:
                       A                        B
'Cuz when the villains fall, the kingdoms never weep
                A
No one lights a candle to remember
B                    A
No, no one mourns at all
                        B
When they lay them down to sleep
         D             A             E
So don't tell me that I didn't have it right
      D              A                E
Don't tell me that it wasn't black and white
      D                A            D              A
After all you've put me through, don't say it wasn't true
     Gbm                             A
That you were not the monster that I knew,

Chorus:
      E
Cause I cannot play the grieving girl and
B
Lie saying that I miss you
        Dbm                A    E    B
And that my world has gone dark

Outro:
Gbm    E       Gb    A
I will sing no requiem
Gbm    E       Gb    A
I will sing no requiem
Gbm    E       Gb    A
I will sing no requiem
     Dbm
tonight
E A
Oh-oh
B Dbm
