  G                                     C                    Em
1. Right from the start___ You were a thief___ You stole my heart
       C                    G
   And I your wil-ling vic-tim
      G                                   C                     Em
   I let you see the parts of me___ That were-n't all that pret-ty
            C                       G
   And with ev'-ry touch you fixed them
         Em                 A         D      G
   Now you've been talk-ing in your sleep___ Oh, oh
     Em               A     D     G
   Things you ne-ver say to me___ Oh, oh
    Em                  A      D      G       C      Bm  Dsus4  -  D
   Tell me that you've had e-nough___ Of our love___ Our love

        Just a sec-ond we're not broken just bent___And we can learn to love a-gain
                                       D/F#                           Em
        It's in the stars___ It's been writ-ten in the scars on our hearts
                                Bm                   D7             G

2. I'm sor-ry I don't understand___ Where all of this is com-ing from
        C                  G
   I thought that we were fine___(Oh, we had everything)
         G                                C                 Em
   Your head is running wild again___ My dear we still have ev'-ry-thin'
        C                G
   And it's all in your mind___ (Yeah, but this is happenin')
     Em                A         D       G
   You've been havin' real bad dreams___ Oh, oh
        Em              A      D     G
   You used to lie so close to me___ Oh, oh
            Em                 A       D            G        C      Bm  Am
   There's noth-in' more than emp-ty sheets___ Be-tween our love___0ur love

                            D                        Em
        We're col-lec-ting dust___ But our love's e-nough
                           Bm                        C
        You're hold-ing it in___ You're pour-ing a drink

Notes

  • Level Of Ease: Easy - beginners may find the Bm a little hard to play at first but stick with it. If you can't play barre chords yet, you can play the chord as xx4432 where you only play the top 4 strings. This will get you out of trouble until you learn how to play barre chords.
  • D/F# means you play a D chord leading with an F# bass-note. If you find this chord a little awkward, simply play a normal D chord... it still sounds fine.
  • The D/F# shape can be played as the chart suggests - using your thumb to play the note represented by the letter 'T'. This works well if your hands are big enough to stretch the thumb and play the notes. If this is too hard you can use your first finger to play the 6th string, while your 2nd, 3rd and 4th fingers play the D chord instead of fingers 1, 2 and 3.
  • The Chorus after the Bridge is played with drums only - I have included the chords anyway.
  • The hyphen between 2 chords means they share equal timing, e.g., | D - G | means 2 beats on D and 2 beats on G. Similarly | Dsus4 - D | means you play Dsus4 for 2 beats and D for 2 beats.
