Intro:
    B Dbm Esus2 A
    B Dbm Esus2 A


E                   B                          A
I used to think one day we'd tell the story of us
                                        E
How we met and the sparks flew instantly
             B                           A        
People would say, "They're the lucky ones"
E                 B                        A
I used to know my place was a spot next to you
                                            E
Now I'm searching the room for an empty seat
                           B                       A
'Cause lately I don't even know what page you're on


B                  Dbm
Oh, a simple complication
          E               Bsus4
Miscommunications lead to fall out
A
So many things that I wish you knew
B
So many walls up I can't break through


E                Bsus4              A
Now I'm standing alone in a crowded room
                      E
And we're not speaking
                 Bsus4             A                               
And I'm dying to know is it killing you
- A -                 
Like it's killing me?
Dbm                   B                    E                  
I don't know what to say since a twist of fate
                  A                                       
When it all broke down
        Dbm                  B                  A                                                 
And the story of us looks a lot like a tragedy now

Interlude: B  Dbm  Esus2  A

E                    B                       
How'd we end up this way?
                 A              
See me nervously pulling at my clothes
                       E
And trying to look busy
                      B               A
And you're doing your best to avoid me


E                         B                          A
I'm starting to think one day I'll tell the story of us
                                            E
How I was losing my mind when I saw you here
                  B                               A
But you held your pride like you should have held me


B                           Dbm
Oh, we're scared to see the ending
           E                  Bsus4
Why are we pretending this is nothing?
A
I'd tell you I miss you but I don't know how
B                     -stop-
I've never heard silence quite this loud


E                Bsus4              A
Now I'm standing alone in a crowded room
                      E
And we're not speaking
                 Bsus4              A                               
And I'm dying to know is it killing you
- A -                 
Like it's killing me?
Dbm                   B                    E                  
I don't know what to say since a twist of fate
                  A                                       
When it all broke down
        Dbm                  B                  A                                                 
And the story of us looks a lot like a tragedy now

Interlude:
    B  Dbm  Esus2  A
    B  Dbm  Esus2  A


E                                 A 
    This is looking like a contest
- A -                              
Of who can act like they care less
E                          B              A
But I liked it better when you were on my side
E                             A
The battle's in your hands now
- A -
But I would lay my armor down
   Dbm              B                A
If you'd say you'd rather love than fight


A
So many things that you wish I knew
        B                        
But the story of us might be ending soon


E                                        
  Now I'm standing alone 
 Bsus4             A                   A
      In a crowded room  and we're not speaking                    
        E        Bsus4              A                               
And I'm dying to know is it killing you
                  A                 
Like it's killing me?
Dbm                   B                    E                  
I don't know what to say since a twist of fate
                  A                                       
When it all broke down
        Dbm                                                       
And the story of us 
        B                  A                E  Bsus4
Looks a lot like a tragedy now, now, no-----ow
A                        E
   And we're not speaking
                 Bsus4              A                              
And I'm dying to know is it killing you
- A -                 
Like it's killing me?
Dbm                   B                    E                  
I don't know what to say since a twist of fate
                    A                                       
'Cause we're go-ing down
        Dbm                  B                  A
And the story of us looks a lot like a tragedy now

    alienlorrie you’re right. -4 is easier than -2

  2. Transposing it -4 sounds good in my opinion and much easier than -2

  3. Dragon_slayer

    -if you transpose down two keys- Dsus2 and Asus4 are the same

  4. Much easier if you transpose down two keys
