C C                                       G G
I used to think one day we'd tell the story of us,

How we met
F F
And the sparks flew instantly
C C G G
And people would say they're the lucky ones
C C G G
I used to know my place was a spot next to you,
F F
Now I'm searching the room for an empty seat
C C G G
Cause lately I don't even know what page you're on
F F
Oh, a simple complication,
Am Am C C
Miscommunications lead to fallout,
G G
So many things that I wish you knew
F F
So many walls up that I can't break through
C C G G
Now I'm standing alone in a crowded room
F F
And we're not speaking
C C G G
And I'm dyin' to know
D D
Is it killing you
F F
Like it's killing me?

Yeah
C C G G D D G G C C
I don't know what to say since a twist of fate, when it all broke down
D D G G C C
And the story of us looks a lot like a tragedy now
Em Em
Next chapter

Verse 2: (Same chords)
How'd we end up this way?

See me nervously pulling at my clothes and trying to look busy
And you're doing your best to avoid me
I'm starting to think one day I'll tell the story of us
Of how I was losing my mind when I saw you here
But you held your pride like you should have held me,
Oh I'm scared to see the ending why are we pretending this is nothing
I'd tell you I miss you but I don't know how
I've never heard silence quite this loud.

Chorus(Same chords)
Now I'm standing alone in a crowded room
And we're not speaking
And I'm dying to know
Is it killing you
Like it's killing me?
Yeah
And I don't know what to say since a twist of fate, when it all broke down
And the story of us looks a lot like a tragedy now

Em Em C C
This is looking like a contest
G G D D
Of who can act like they care less
F F C C G G D D
But I liked it better when you were on my side
C C
The battle's in your hands now
G G
But I would lay my armor down
D D F F
If you say you'd rather love than fight
C C G G
So many things that you wish I knew
D D F F
But the story of us might be ending soon

Now I'm standing alone in a crowded room
And we're not speaking
And I'm dying to know
Is it killing you
Like it's killing me?
Yeah
And I don't know what to say since a twist of fate, when it all broke down
And the story of us looks a lot like a tragedy now
Now, Now, Now

And we're not speaking,
And I'm dying to know is it killing you like it's killing me?
Yeah
And I don't know what to say since a twist of fate, cause we're going down.
And the story of us looks a lot like a tragedy now
The End
