Intro:
    Bb   F   Gm   Bb
    Eb   Gm Cm   Fsus4 F

    
My, my, my, my -my, my, my, my-
    
My, my, my, my -my, my, my, my-
 
Bb       F   
  My, my, my, my
Gm       Bb
   My, my, my, my
Eb       Gm
  My, my, my, my
Cm       Fsus4    F
   My, my,      my,  my
 
Chorus 1:
Bb                 F                   Gm
Saying goodbye is death by a thousand cuts
           Bb
Flashbacks waking me up
Eb                       Gm
  I get drunk, but it's not enough
           Cm                      Fsus4  F
'Cause the morning comes and you're not my baby
 

Bb                    F               Gm
  I look through the windows of this love
               Bb
Even though we boarded them up
Eb                  Gm
  Chandelier still flickering here
         Cm           Fsus4 F             Bb
'Cause I can't pretend it's okay when it's not
F                   Dm      Eb    F
    It's death by a thousand cuts
 
Verse 1:
Bb                        F                     Dm  Eb
  I dress to kill my time, I take the long way home
                                  F
I ask the traffic lights if it'll be alright, they say, "I don't know"
Bb                       F             Dm  Eb
  And what once was ours, is no one's now
                               F
I see you everywhere, the only thing we share is this small town
Bb                             F                 Dm  Eb
  You said it was a great love, one for the ages
                                  F
But if the story's over, why am I still writing pages?
 
Chorus 2:
       Bb                 F                   Gm
'Cause saying goodbye is death by a thousand cuts
           Bb
Flashbacks waking me up
Eb                       Gm
  I get drunk, but it's not enough
           Cm                      Fsus4  F
'Cause the morning comes and you're not my baby
 

Bb                    F               Gm
  I look through the windows of this love
               Bb
Even though we boarded them up
Eb                  Gm
  Chandelier still flickering here
         Cm           Fsus4 F             Bb
'Cause I can't pretend it's okay when it's not
F                   Dm      Eb    F
    It's death by a thousand cuts
 
Verse 2:
Bb                                F   
  My heart, my hips, my body, my love
                             Dm        Eb
Tryna find a part of me that you didn't touch
                               F
Gave up on me like I was a bad drug
                                         Bb
Now I'm searching for signs in a haunted club
 

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

                                F   
My time, my wine, my spirit, my trust
                            Dm         Eb
Tryna find a part of me you didn't take up
                                 F
Gave you too much but it wasn't enough
                                         Bb     F    Gm F
But I'll be alright, it's just a thousand cuts
 
Chorus 3:
Eb                       Gm
  I get drunk, but it's not enough
Cm              Fsus4  F
   'Cause you're not my baby
Bb                    F               Gm
  I look through the windows of this love
               Bb
Even though we boarded them up
Eb                  Gm
  Chandelier still flickering here
         Cm           Fsus4 F             Bb
'Cause I can't pretend it's okay when it's not, no it's not
F                   Dm      Eb    F
    It's death by a thousand cuts   -you didn't touch-
 
Post-Chorus:
                                        Bb
Tryna find a part of me that you didn't touch
            F                               Dm      Eb
My body, my love, my trust -it's death by a thousand cuts-
               F
But it wasn't enough, it wasn't enough, no, no
 
Outro:
Bb  F    Gm           Bb
           I take the long way home
Eb           Gm                     Cm
  I ask the traffic lights if it'll be alright
           Fsus4  F         
They say, "I      don't know"
