A2
It's time I said this
                                                 F#m
But I'm so choked up and I need my sanity
       D2                                E                             A2
I'm scared, believe me, you can see me smile if you let me just stick around.
 
A2
Well this is bye-bye baby
                                     F#m
It isn't like a sudden stop on a freight train
     D2                               E                             A2
If you're not happy and you hurt this much, then let me just stick around.
 
                  D2                                          E
But can I have one second of your time?
                                       D2
If I don't it'll drive me crazy.
                                                    E
As I drop to my knees and scream,
I hate you more than you could know.
 
A2
I hope you fall into the ocean
E                                                  E/F                                F#m
And the current leaves you helpless, swimming around
                                      E             D2              E
As the waves crash over you until you drown. 
(And fall away..)
A2
And hold a funeral for nothing
E                                            E/F                               F#m
And celebrate how empty love can be broken
                      E                      D2                 E                   A2
It takes the sea to put you six feet happily underground
 
A2
Now it's back to reality 
                                              F#m
I'm up in shambles but I guess that's how I should be
                                                          D2                               E
I knew the wedding bells were ringing well, but my bride was missing.
 
                                     A2
It's not supposed to hurt this much
                                                   F#m
But when someone slowly breaks it off
                                            D2                           E                  A2
It tends to leave a bitter taste, a scar, that slowly rips apart.
 
               D2                                         E
Could I have one second of your time?
                                       D2
If I don't, it'll drive me crazy.
                                                    E
As I drop to my knees and scream, 
I hate you more than you could know.
 
 
A2
I hope you fall into the ocean
E                                                  E/F                                F#m
And the current leaves you helpless, swimming around
                                      E             D2              E
As the waves crash over you until you drown. 
(And fall away..)
A2
And hold a funeral for nothing
E                                            E/F                               F#m
And celebrate how empty love can be broken
                      E                      D2                 E                   A2
It takes the sea to put you six feet happily underground
 
F#m  D2
               F#m    D2
Underground..
 
F#m
I've had enough, but it's all for the best.
E
I need to get a few things off my chest.
C#m
There's got to be another way I can say it,
           D2                 E
But to get it right, I have to think straight.
F#m
Hope he tastes like the way I used to taste.
E                                                                  C#m
I can't believe I'd even say this to you now.
             D2              E           A2
When you won't listen at all.
 
A2
I hope you fall into the ocean
E                                                  E/F                                F#m
And the current leaves you helpless, swimming around
                                      E                     D2              E
As the waves crash over you and over you until you drown. 
A2
And hold a funeral for nothing
E                                            E/F                               F#m
And celebrate how empty love can be broken
                      E                      D2                 E
It takes the sea to put you six feet happily underground
F#m             E                       D2                Dm                 A2
It takes the sea to put you six feet happily underground.
