Saying goodbye is death by a thousand cuts
A A
Flashbacks waking me up
G G D D
I get drunk, but it's not enough
Em Em A A
’Cause the morning comes and you're not my baby
D D Dmaj7 Dmaj7 Bm Bm
I look through the windows of this love
A A
Even though we boarded them up
G G D D
Chandelier still flickering here
Em Em A A D D Dmaj7 Dmaj7
'Cause I can’t pretend it's okay when it's not
G G A A
It's death by a thousand cuts

[Verse 1]
D D Dmaj7 Dmaj7
I dress to kill my time, I take the long way home
G G A A
I ask the traffic lights if it'll be alright







They say, "I don't know"
D D Dmaj7 Dmaj7
And what once was ours is no one's now
G G A A
I see you everywhere, the only thing we share


Is this small town
D D Dmaj7 Dmaj7
You said it was a great love, one for the ages
G G A A
But if the story's over, why am I still writing pages?

[Chorus]
D D Dmaj7 Dmaj7 Bm Bm
Saying goodbye is death by a thousand cuts
A A
Flashbacks waking me up
G G D D
I get drunk, but it's not enough
Em Em A A
’Cause the morning comes and you're not my baby
D D Dmaj7 Dmaj7 Bm Bm
I look through the windows of this love
A A
Even though we boarded them up
G G D D
Chandelier still flickering here
Em Em A A D D Dmaj7 Dmaj7
'Cause I can’t pretend it's okay when it's not
G G A A
It's death by a thousand cuts






[Verse 2]
D D Dmaj7 Dmaj7
My heart, my hips, my body, my love
G G
Tryna find a part of me that you didn't touch
A A
Gave up on me like I was a bad drug
D D
Now I'm searching for signs in a haunted club
Dmaj7 Dmaj7
Our songs, our films, united, we stand
G G
Our country, guess it was a lawless land
A A
Why are my fears at the touch of your hands?
D D
Paper cut stains from my paper-thin plans
Dmaj7 Dmaj7
My time, my wine, my spirit, my trust
G G
Tryna find a part of me you didn't take up
A A
Gave you so much, but it wasn't enough
D D Dmaj7 Dmaj7 Bm Bm A A
But I'll be alright, it's just a thousand cuts

[Chorus]
G G D D
I get drunk, but it's not enough
Em Em A A
’Cause the morning comes and you're not my baby
D D Dmaj7 Dmaj7 Bm Bm
I look through the windows of this love
A A
Even though we boarded them up
G G D D
Chandelier still flickering here
Em Em A A D D Dmaj7 Dmaj7
'Cause I can’t pretend it's okay when it's not
G G A A
It's death by a thousand cuts

[Post-Chorus]
D D
Tryna find a part of me that you didn't touch
Dmaj7 Dmaj7 G G
My body, my love, my trust (It's death by a thousand cuts)
A A
But it wasn't enough, it wasn't enough, no, no

[Outro]
D D Dmaj7 Dmaj7 Bm Bm A A
I take the long way home
G G D D Em Em
I ask the traffic lights if it'll be alright
A A G G D D
They say, "I don't know"
