  Gb                               Gbmaj7  
I breathe you in with smoke in the backyard lights,
           B                              Db
we used to laugh until we choked into the wasted nights.
           Gb                              Gbmaj7
It was the best time of my life, but now I sleep alone,
            B                                  Db
So darling, don't, don't wake me up, 'cause my thrill is gone.
       B                             Db
In the sunset turning red behind the smoke,
             Gb
forever and alone.
Yeah!

Interlude: Gb Bbm Gb Bbm

                 Gb                               Gbmaj7
You've gone and sewn me to this bed, the taste of you and me
           B                             Db
will never leave my lips again under the blinding rain.
        Gb
I wanna hold your hand so tight I'm gonna break my wrist,
             B                               Db
and when the vultures sing tonight I'm gonna join right in.


          Gb       
I'll sing along, oh
Bbm
'cause I don't know any other song.
           Ebm
I'll sing along,
                       Bb7
but I'm barely hanging on.
                          Ebm
No, I'm barely hanging on.
                                     Bb7      
By the time you're hearing this I'll already be gone,
                B                 Db                    Gb       Bbm
and now there's nothing to do but scream at the drunken moon.


           Gb
This isn't fair! - No! -
                 Gbmaj7
Don't you try to blame this on me.
   Ebm7                             Db
My love for you was bulletproof but you're the one who shot me.
Gb               Bb7
And god damn it, I can barely say your name,
Ebm                      Bb7
so I'll try to write and fill the pen with blood from the sink.


Ebm Bb7 B
Woah oh
Bb7            Bb7               Ebm
But don't just say it, you should sing my name.
   Bb7                          B
Pretend that it's a song 'cause forever it's yours,
           Db                         
and we can sing this on the way home.

Interlude: Gb  Bbm

I'll sing along, oh
Bbm                           Gb             Bbm
'cause I don't know any other song.

I'll sing along,

but I'm barely hanging on.

No, I'm barely hanging on.
Ebm                                  Bb7
By the time you're hearing this I'll already be gone,
                B                 Db
and now there's nothing to do but tear my voice apart.
B
Nothing to do,
     Db                   Gb      
but scream at the drunken moon.

  1. if you do the -1 key change, i recommend using E7 instead of Fmaj7. not only is it easier but it sounds way better.

  2. Thank you so much for the key change recommendation! I’ve only been playing for somewhere around two months and I would have loved to learn the song but the 0 was way to hard for my skill. The -6 sounds great too!

  3. sandpitturtle266

    +6 is way easier and sounds great, by the way

  4. screechingonions

    -6 is pretty easy
