Verse:
-eliza-
  Bm                      Gb
I saved every letter you wrote me
G                  D
From the moment I read them
  Em7            Bm
I knew you were mine
                   Gb
You said you were mine
                   G     D  Em7
I thought you were mine
 
Bm                 Gb
Do you know what Angelica said
         G                     D       Em7
When we saw your first letter arrive?
 
She said
 
Bm               Gb
“Be careful with that one, love
        G                      D
He will do what it takes to survive.”
 
Pre-Chorus:
Em7           Bm               Gb
You and your words flooded my senses
      G                    D
Your sentences left me defenseless
Em7             Bm             Gb
You built me palaces out of paragraphs
             G        D  Em7
You built cathedrals
         Bm                     Gb
I’m re-reading the letters you wrote me
      G                          D
I’m searching and scanning for answers
    Em7   Bm
In every line
                  Gb
For some kind of sign
                   G
And when you were mine
 
The world seemed to
 
Chorus:
D    Bm  Gbm  Gbm    Gb    Gmaj7
Burn
D    Bm  Gbm  Gbm    Gb    Gmaj7
Burn
 
Verse:
     Bm                        Gb
You published the letters she wrote you
    G                             D
You told the whole world how you brought
           Em7     Bm
This girl into our bed
                 Gb                         G     D  Em7
In clearing your name, you have ruined our lives
 

Bm                 Gb           G
Do you know what Angelica said
                          D     Em7
When she read what you’d done?
         Bm
She said
                       Gb
“You have married an Icarus
        G                     D
He has flown too close to the sun.”
 
Pre-Chorus:
Em7           Bm                        Gb
You and your words, obsessed with your legacy...
       G                    D
Your sentences border on senseless
Em7           Bm                Gb
And you are paranoid in every paragraph
            G
How they perceive you
 
You, you, you…
 
     Bm                      Gb
I’m erasing myself from the narrative
     G                  D         Em7
Let future historians wonder how Eliza
Bm                        Gb
Reacted when you broke her heart
G
You have torn it all apart
 
I am watching it
 
Chorus:
D    Bm  Gbm  Gbm    Gb    Gmaj7
Burn
            D    Bm  Gbm  Gbm    Gb    Gmaj7
Watching it burn
 
Bridge:
                 A             D
The world has no right to my heart
                  D   
The world has no place in our bed
      Bm7                      Gmaj7
They don’t get to know what I said
     A             D
I’m burning the memories
             D                       Bm7
Burning the letters that might have redeemed you
      Gmaj7       A           D
You forfeit all rights to my heart
                 D   
You forfeit the place in our bed
        Bm7                   Gmaj7
You'll sleep in your office instead
      A         D
With only the memories
             D         D     D    D G
Of when you were mine
 
Outro:
                 Bm  Gb  G  D Em7  Bm9
I hope that you burn
