[Intro]

Bm Bm F# F# G G D D Em7 Em7 x2


[Verse]

(ELIZA)

Bm Bm F# F#
I saved every letter you wrote me
G G D D
From the moment I read them
Em7 Em7 Bm Bm
I knew you were mine
F# F#
You said you were mine
G G D D Em7 Em7
I thought you were mine

Bm Bm F# F#
Do you know what Angelica said
G G D D Em7 Em7
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.”


[Pre-Chorus]

Em7/C# Em7/C# Bm Bm F# F#
You and your words flooded my senses
G G D D
Your sentences left me defenseless
Em7 Em7 Bm Bm F# F#
You built me palaces out of paragraphs
G G D D Em7 Em7
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
Em7 Em7 Bm Bm
In every line
F# F#
For some kind of sign
G G
And when you were mine

The world seemed to


[Chorus]

D/A D/A Bm Bm F#m F#m F#m/E F#m/E F#/D F#/D Gmaj7 Gmaj7
Burn
D/A D/A Bm Bm F#m F#m F#m/E F#m/E F#/D F#/D Gmaj7 Gmaj7
Burn


[Verse]

Bm Bm F# F#
You published the letters she wrote you
G G D D
You told the whole world how you brought
Em7 Em7 Bm Bm
This girl into our bed
F# F# G G D D Em7 Em7
In clearing your name, you have ruined our lives

Bm Bm F# F# G G
Do you know what Angelica said
D D Em7 Em7
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.”


[Pre-Chorus]

Em7/C# Em7/C# Bm Bm F# F#
You and your words, obsessed with your legacy...
G G D D
Your sentences border on senseless
Em7 Em7 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 Em7 Em7
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


[Chorus]

D/A D/A Bm Bm F#m F#m F#m/E F#m/E F#/D F#/D Gmaj7 Gmaj7
Burn
D/A D/A Bm Bm F#m F#m F#m/E F#m/E F#/D F#/D Gmaj7 Gmaj7
Watching it burn


[Bridge]

A A D D
The world has no right to my heart
D/Bb D/Bb
The world has no place in our bed
Bm7 Bm7 Gmaj7 Gmaj7
They don’t get to know what I said
A A D D
I’m burning the memories
D/Bb D/Bb Bm7 Bm7
Burning the letters that might have redeemed you
Gmaj7 Gmaj7 A A D D
You forfeit all rights to my heart
D/Bb D/Bb
You forfeit the place in our bed
Bm7 Bm7 Gmaj7 Gmaj7
You'll sleep in your office instead
A A D D
With only the memories
D/Bb D/Bb D/F# D/F# D/E D/E D D G G
Of when you were mine


[Outro]

Bm Bm F# F# G G D D Em7 Em7 Bm9 Bm9
I hope that you burn
