Intro:
              Cm      Ab             Eb     
I don't want hold you if you want to go, 
                 Cm         Ab               Eb     
I'm not going to make you feel love if you don't 
                 Cm      Ab                  Eb     
I would rather learn what it feels like to burn 
       Bb              Ab
than feel nothing at all 

Verse:
      Cm       
Oh I used to treat you sweetly 
         Gm
I would pull you to my chest
         Ab 
as you cried about the ocean 
           Eb
slipping quickly through your hands 
          Cm
you were searching for one grain of sand 
      Gm
along an endless beach 
           Ab
as I was building you castle 
          Eb                    Ab
that you just refused to see 

Pre-Chorus:
          Bb             Gm  
what do I say, What do I do 

to show you all the ways 
   Cm    -     Bb                   Ab
my heart is slowly shattering for you 
           Bb                 Gm  -  G
what do I say, what do I do 

Chorus:
              Cm      Ab             Eb     
I don't want hold you if you want to go, 
                 Cm         Ab               Eb     
I'm not going to make you feel love if you don't 
                 Cm      Ab                  Eb     
I would rather learn what it feels like to burn 
       Bb              Ab
than feel nothing at all

Verse:
         Cm
You have faded my reality 
       Gm
like leaves that turn to dust 
       Ab
fell asleep inside a fantasy 
      Eb
then woke up feeling lost 
           Cm
now I'm terrified and restless 
       Gm
but I just cannot escape 
            Ab
I wish you had words 
                     Eb                    Ab
to cool this fever that is killing me 

Pre-Chorus:
          Bb             Gm  
what do I say, What do I do 

to show you all the ways 
   Cm    -     Bb                   Ab
my heart is slowly shattering for you 
           Bb                 Gm  -  G
what do I say, what do I do 

Chorus -x2-:
              Cm      Ab             Eb     
I don't want hold you if you want to go, 
                 Cm         Ab               Eb     
I'm not going to make you feel love if you don't 
                 Cm      Ab                  Eb     
I would rather learn what it feels like to burn 
       Bb              Ab
than feel nothing at all

Bb     Cm  Eb  Ab
ohhhh oh oh oh

Chorus -x3-:
              Cm      Ab             Eb     
I don't want hold you if you want to go, 
                 Cm         Ab               Eb     
I'm not going to make you feel love if you don't 
                 Cm      Ab                  Eb     
I would rather learn what it feels like to burn 
       Bb              Ab
than feel nothing at all
