Bm Bm  F# F#  G G  D D  Em Em    x2

Bm Bm F# F#
I saved every letter you wrote me
G G D D
From the moment I read them
Em Em Bm Bm
I knew you were mine
F# F#
You said you were mine
G G D D Em Em
I thought you were mine

Bm Bm F# F#
Do you know what Angelica said
G G D D Em Em
When we saw your first letter arrive?

She said

Bm Bm F# F#
“Be careful with that one, love
G G D D
He will do what it takes to survive.”

Em Em Bm Bm F# F#
You and your words flooded my senses
G G D D
Your sentences left me defenseless
Em Em Bm Bm F# F#
You built me palaces out of paragraphs
G G D D Em Em
You built cathedrals
Bm Bm F# F#
I'm re-reading the letters you wrote me
G G D D
I'm searching and scanning for answers
Em Em Bm Bm
In every line
F# F#
For some kind of sign
G G
And when you were mine

The world seemed to

D D Bm Bm F#m F#m G7 G7
Burn
D D Bm Bm F#m F#m G7 G7
Burn

Bm Bm F# F#
You published the letters she wrote you
G G D D
You told the whole world how you brought
Em Em Bm Bm
This girl into our bed
F# F# G G D D Em Em
In clearing your name, you have ruined our lives
Bm Bm F# F# G G
Do you know what Angelica said
D D Em Em
When she read what you'd done?
Bm Bm
She said
F# F#
“You have married an Icarus
G G D D
He has flown too close to the sun.”

Em Em Bm Bm F# F#
You and your words, obsessed with your legacy...
G G D D
Your sentences border on senseless
Em Em Bm Bm F# F#
And you are paranoid in every paragraph
G G
How they perceive you

You, you, you...
Bm Bm F# F#
I'm erasing myself from the narrative
G G D D Em Em
Let future historians wonder how Eliza
Bm Bm F# F#
Reacted when you broke her heart
G G
You have torn it all apart

I am watching it

D D Bm Bm F#m F#m G7 G7
Burn
D D Bm Bm F#m F#m G7 G7
Watching it burn
A A D D
The world has no right to my heart
F#m/C# F#m/C#
The world has no place in our bed
Bm7 Bm7 G7 G7
They don't get to know what I said
A A D D
I'm burning the memories
F#m/C# F#m/C# Bm7 Bm7
Burning the letters that might have redeemed you
G7 G7 A A D D
You forfeit all rights to my heart
F#m/C# F#m/C#
You forfeit the place in our bed
Bm7 Bm7 G7 G7
You sleep in your office instead
A A D D
With only the memories
F#m/C# F#m/C# Bm Bm G G
Of when you were mine
Bm Bm F# F# G G D D Em Em Bm9 Bm9
I hope that you burn
