[Verse 1]
Am Am E7 E7
I saved every letter you wrote me
F F C C
From the moment I read them
Am Am
I knew you were mine
E7 E7
You said you were mine
F F C/G C/G
I thought you were mine


Am Am E7 E7
Do you know what Angelica said
F F C C
When we saw your first letter arrive?

She said
Am Am E7 E7
"Be careful with that one, love
F F C C
He will do what it takes to survive."


[Pre-Chorus]
Am Am E7 E7
You and your words flooded my senses
F F C C
Your sentences left me defenseless
Am Am E7 E7
You built me palaces out of paragraphs
F F C/G C/G
You built cathedrals


Am Am E7 E7
I'm re-reading the letters you wrote me
F F C C
I'm searching and scanning for answers
Am Am
In every line
E7 E7
For some kind of sign
F F C C
And when you were mine

The world seemed to


[Chorus] (x2)
CAm Em Em
Burn

[Verse 2]
Am Am E7 E7
You published the letters she wrote you
F F C C
You told the whole world how you brought
Am Am
This girl into our bed
E7 E7 FC/G
In clearing your name, you have ruined our lives


Am Am E7 E7
Do you know what Angelica said
F F C C
When she read what you'd done?

She said
Am Am E7 E7
You have married an Icarus
F F C C
He has flown too close to the sun.


[Pre-Chorus]
Am Am E7 E7
You and your words, obsessed with your legacy...
F F C C
Your sentences border on senseless
Am Am E7 E7
And you are paranoid in every paragraph
FC/G
How they perceive you

You, you, you


[Verse 3]
Am Am E7 E7
I'm erasing myself from the narrative
FC
Let future historians wonder how Eliza
Am Am E7 E7
Reacted when you broke her heart
F F
You have torn it all apart

I am watching it


[Chorus]
CAm Em Em
Burn

Watching it burn


[Bridge A A]
G G C C
The world has no right to my heart
Em Em
The world has no place in our bed
Am Am F F
They don't get to know what I said
G G C C
I'm burning the memories
Em Em Am Am
Burning the letters that might have redeemed you


[Bridge B B]
F F D D C C
You forfeit all rights to my heart
Em Em
You forfeit the place in our bed
Am Am F F
You sleep in your office instead
G G C C
With only the memories
Em Em Am Am F F
Of when you were mine


[Outro]
N.C.
I hope that you

Burn
