Intro:
    Ab   Eb   Fm   Ab
    Db   Fm Bbm   Ebsus4 Eb

    
My, my, my, my -my, my, my, my-
    
My, my, my, my -my, my, my, my-
 
Ab       Eb   
  My, my, my, my
Fm       Ab
   My, my, my, my
Db       Fm
  My, my, my, my
Bbm       Ebsus4    Eb
   My, my,      my,  my
 
Chorus 1:
Ab                 Eb                   Fm
Saying goodbye is death by a thousand cuts
           Ab
Flashbacks waking me up
Db                       Fm
  I get drunk, but it's not enough
           Bbm                      Ebsus4  Eb
'Cause the morning comes and you're not my baby
 

Ab                    Eb               Fm
  I look through the windows of this love
               Ab
Even though we boarded them up
Db                  Fm
  Chandelier still flickering here
         Bbm           Ebsus4 Eb             Ab
'Cause I can't pretend it's okay when it's not
Eb                   Cm      Db    Eb
    It's death by a thousand cuts
 
Verse 1:
Ab                        Eb                     Cm  Db
  I dress to kill my time, I take the long way home
                                  Eb
I ask the traffic lights if it'll be alright, they say, "I don't know"
Ab                       Eb             Cm  Db
  And what once was ours, is no one's now
                               Eb
I see you everywhere, the only thing we share is this small town
Ab                             Eb                 Cm  Db
  You said it was a great love, one for the ages
                                  Eb
But if the story's over, why am I still writing pages?
 
Chorus 2:
       Ab                 Eb                   Fm
'Cause saying goodbye is death by a thousand cuts
           Ab
Flashbacks waking me up
Db                       Fm
  I get drunk, but it's not enough
           Bbm                      Ebsus4  Eb
'Cause the morning comes and you're not my baby
 

Ab                    Eb               Fm
  I look through the windows of this love
               Ab
Even though we boarded them up
Db                  Fm
  Chandelier still flickering here
         Bbm           Ebsus4 Eb             Ab
'Cause I can't pretend it's okay when it's not
Eb                   Cm      Db    Eb
    It's death by a thousand cuts
 
Verse 2:
Ab                                Eb   
  My heart, my hips, my body, my love
                             Cm        Db
Tryna find a part of me that you didn't touch
                               Eb
Gave up on me like I was a bad drug
                                         Ab
Now I'm searching for signs in a haunted club
 

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

                                Eb   
My time, my wine, my spirit, my trust
                            Cm         Db
Tryna find a part of me you didn't take up
                                 Eb
Gave you too much but it wasn't enough
                                         Ab     Eb    Fm Eb
But I'll be alright, it's just a thousand cuts
 
Chorus 3:
Db                       Fm
  I get drunk, but it's not enough
Bbm              Ebsus4  Eb
   'Cause you're not my baby
Ab                    Eb               Fm
  I look through the windows of this love
               Ab
Even though we boarded them up
Db                  Fm
  Chandelier still flickering here
         Bbm           Ebsus4 Eb             Ab
'Cause I can't pretend it's okay when it's not, no it's not
Eb                   Cm      Db    Eb
    It's death by a thousand cuts   -you didn't touch-
 
Post-Chorus:
                                        Ab
Tryna find a part of me that you didn't touch
            Eb                               Cm      Db
My body, my love, my trust -it's death by a thousand cuts-
               Eb
But it wasn't enough, it wasn't enough, no, no
 
Outro:
Ab  Eb    Fm           Ab
           I take the long way home
Db           Fm                     Bbm
  I ask the traffic lights if it'll be alright
           Ebsus4  Eb         
They say, "I      don't know"
