Intro: Db Ab Db Ab Db Ab Db Ab

Verse:
Db      
It's not your eyes
         Ab       Db
It's not what you say
                Bbm
It's not your laughter

That gives you away
              Gb
You're just lonely
             Ab          Db
You've been lonely, too long

Verse:
Db                      Ab     Db
Oh, you're acting your thin disguise
            Bbm
All your perfectly delivered lines
             Gb
They don't fool me
            Ab           Db
You've been lonely, too long

Chorus:
             Gb
Let me in the wall
             Db
You've built around
             Ab
We can light a match
            Bbm
And burn it down
                Gb
Let me hold your hand
                              Db
And dance 'round and 'round the flames
           Ab
In front of us

Dust to dust

Verse:
Db
You've held your head up
        Ab          Db
You've fought the fight
          Bbm
You bear the scars

You've done your time
         Gb
Listen to me 
             Ab           Db
You've been lonely, too long

Chorus:
            Gb
Let me in the wall
             Db
You've built around
             Ab
We can light a match
            Bbm
And burn it down
               Gb
Let me hold your hand
                              Db
And dance 'round and 'round the flames
           Ab
In front of us

Dust to dust

Interlude -x2-: Bbm Gb Db Ab

Verse:
Db                      Ab         Db
You're like a mirror, reflecting me
                 Bbm
Takes one to know one, so take it from me
          Gb
You've been lonely
           Ab           Db
You've been lonely, too long
Ab        Gb
We've been lonely
           Ab           Db
We've been lonely, too long

Outro: Ab Db Ab Db Ab Db

    Capo 1 to make the chords way easier instead of barring the first fret the entire time
