Verse 1:
     GG chord     
Like flowers at your mother's wedding
    CC chord
The brighter shade of blue

I'm clutching to the way I felt about you
  GG chord
Before the bags under my eyes
     CC chord
From tossing in my bed at night

Now I know I never really loved you

Your parents tied a knot just like the one that's in my chest
    GG chord                                   CC chord

You hold the past over your head

The record keeps on skipping all the songs you love the most
       GG chord                           CC chord
You're everything I hate about the east coast
    GG chord                             CC chord

You are only just a blanket that always left my feet cold
