Chorus 1:
E                 B                   Dbm
Saying goodbye is death by a thousand cuts
           E
Flashbacks waking me up
A                       Dbm
  I get drunk, but it's not enough
           Gbm                      Bsus4  B
'Cause the morning comes and you're not my baby
 

E                    B               Dbm
  I look through the windows of this love
               E
Even though we boarded them up
A                  Dbm
  Chandelier still flickering here
         Gbm           Bsus4 B             E
'Cause I can't pretend it's okay when it's not
B                   Abm      A    B
    It's death by a thousand cuts
 
Verse 1:
E                        B                     Abm  A
  I dress to kill my time, I take the long way home
                                  B
I ask the traffic lights if it'll be alright, they say, "I don't know"
E                       B             Abm  A
  And what once was ours, is no one's now
                               B
I see you everywhere, the only thing we share is this small town
E                             B                 Abm  A
  You said it was a great love, one for the ages
                                  B
But if the story's over, why am I still writing pages?
 
Chorus 2:
       E                 B                   Dbm
'Cause saying goodbye is death by a thousand cuts
           E
Flashbacks waking me up
A                       Dbm
  I get drunk, but it's not enough
           Gbm                      Bsus4  B
'Cause the morning comes and you're not my baby
 

E                    B               Dbm
  I look through the windows of this love
               E
Even though we boarded them up
A                  Dbm
  Chandelier still flickering here
         Gbm           Bsus4 B             E
'Cause I can't pretend it's okay when it's not
B                   Abm      A    B
    It's death by a thousand cuts
 
Verse 2:
E                                B   
  My heart, my hips, my body, my love
                             Abm        A
Tryna find a part of me that you didn't touch
                               B
Gave up on me like I was a bad drug
                                         E
Now I'm searching for signs in a haunted club
 

                                B   
Our songs, our films, united we stand
                            Abm     A
Our country, guess it was a lawless land
                                    B
Quiet my fears at the touch of your hand
                                     E
Paper cut stings from our paper-thin plans
 

                                B   
My time, my wine, my spirit, my trust
                            Abm         A
Tryna find a part of me you didn't take up
                                 B
Gave you too much but it wasn't enough
                                         E     B    Dbm B
But I'll be alright, it's just a thousand cuts
 
Chorus 3:
A                       Dbm
  I get drunk, but it's not enough
Gbm              Bsus4  B
   'Cause you're not my baby
E                    B               Dbm
  I look through the windows of this love
               E
Even though we boarded them up
A                  Dbm
  Chandelier still flickering here
         Gbm           Bsus4 B             E
'Cause I can't pretend it's okay when it's not, no it's not
B                   Abm      A    B
    It's death by a thousand cuts   -you didn't touch-
 
Post-Chorus:
                                        E
Tryna find a part of me that you didn't touch
            B                               Abm      A
My body, my love, my trust -it's death by a thousand cuts-
               B
But it wasn't enough, it wasn't enough, no, no
 
Outro:
E  B    Dbm           E
           I take the long way home
A           Dbm                     Gbm
  I ask the traffic lights if it'll be alright
           Bsus4  B         
They say, "I      don't know"
