Intro: Am Em F

Verse:
 Am                    Em   F   **
Bury all your secrets in my skin
 Am                        Em  F  
Come away with innocence, and leave me with my sins
 Am                         Em       F
The air around me still feels like a cage
 Am                           Em   F       
And love is just a camouflage for what resembles rage again… 

Pre Chorus: Am Em F

Chorus:
                        G                       Am
So if you love me, let me go. And run away before I know.
                             G                               Am
My heart is just too dark to care. I can't destroy what isn't there.
                    G                            Am
Deliver me into my Fate - If I'm alone I cannot hate
                       G
I don't deserve to have you…
    F                                                     Am
My smile was taken long ago / If I can change I hope I never know

Pre Verse: Am Em F 

Verse:
    Am                   Em      F    
I still press your letters to my lips
     Am                        Em     F
And cherish them in parts of me that savor every kiss
   Am                         Em    F
I couldn't face a life without your light
    Am                            Em   F       
But all of that was ripped apart… when you refused to fight

Chorus:
                                G                              Am 
So save your breath, I will not hear. I think I made it very clear.
                          G                                 Am
You couldn't hate enough to love. Is that supposed to be enough?
                            G                                   Am
I only wish you weren't my friend. Then I could hurt you in the end.
                          G
I never claimed to be a Saint…
    F                                                            Am
My own was banished long ago / It took the Death of Hope to let you go

Solo: Am Em F

Chorus:
                              G
So Break Yourself Against My Stones
                         Am
And Spit Your Pity In My Soul
                     G
You Never Needed Any Help
                         Am
You Sold Me Out To Save Yourself
                       G
And I Won't Listen To Your Shame
                            Am
You Ran Away - You're All The Same
                   G
Angels Lie To Keep Control…
    F
My Love Was Punished Long Ago
                                     A B C E F 
If You Still Care, Don't Ever Let Me Know
                                        Am Em F - twice - ends in Am          
If you still care, don't ever let me know…

  1. I personnaly use this strumming pattern for the intro :
    I do 3Am in Down, then an another one still Down quickly followed by a Em in Up and i continue on the F in Down, it sounds more or less the same as the guitar on the song

  2. Natalie Clark

    The strumming pattern I use is
    D D U U repeated

  3. Alana Ball

    The strumming pattern that I play in the beginning as lead and background that is played in the regular Spotify version is:
    (^ IS MARCATO)

    ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^
    U-U-U-U-U-U U-D U-U-U-U-U-U-D-U x2
    (Am). (Em) (F)

    Hope this helps a little.

  4. What is the strumming pattern though?

  5. Lenzy Victorino

    Meaning. How do I know the strumming patterns.

  6. Lenzy Victorino

    How do you read the music?

  7. Narutokun85

    The effect you were probably trying to get at the end, is actually better with these chords.
    Am, G, C, Em, F.

  8. Thank you so much!!! I love this song, and it sounds surprisingly good on the uke
