          C
when it's not
Gadd4                         F    Gadd4
    It's death by a thousand cuts
 
 
VERSE 1
 
C                        Gadd4                      F
  I dress to kill my time, I take the long way home
                                  Gadd4
I ask the traffic lights if it'll be alright, they say, "I don't know"
C                       Gadd4             F
  And what once was ours, is no one's now
                               Gadd4
I see you everywhere, the only thing we share is this small town
C                             Gadd4                F
  You said it was a great love, one for the ages
                                  Gadd4
But if the story's over, why am I still writing pages?
 
 
CHORUS 2
 
       C                 Gadd4                 Am
'Cause saying goodbye is death by a thousand cuts
           Gadd4
Flashbacks waking me up
F                       Am7
  I get drunk, but it's not enough
           F                       Gadd4
'Cause the morning comes and you're not my baby
 
C                    Gadd4             Am
  I look through the windows of this love
               Gadd4
Even though we boarded them up
F                  Am7
  Chandelier still flickering here
         F            Gadd4                C
'Cause I can't pretend it's okay when it's not
Gadd4                         F    Gadd4
    It's death by a thousand cuts
 
 
VERSE 2
 
C                                Gadd4
  My heart, my hips, my body, my love
                                        F
Tryna find a part of me that you didn't touch
                               Gadd4
Gave up on me like I was a bad drug
                                         C
Now I'm searching for signs in a haunted club
 
                                Gadd4
Our songs, our films, united we stand
                                    F
Our country, guess it was a lawless land
                                    Gadd4
Quiet my fears at the touch of your hand
                                     C*
Paper cut stings from our paper-thin plans
 
                                Gadd4
My time, my wine, my spirit, my trust
                                        F
Tryna find a part of me you didn't take up
                                 Gadd4
Gave you too much but it wasn't enough
                                         C     Gadd4  Am  Gadd4
But I'll be alright, it's just a thousand cuts
 
 
CHORUS 3
 
F                       Am7
  I get drunk, but it's not enough
F                Gadd4
   'Cause you're not my baby
C                    Gadd4             Am
  I look through the windows of this love
               Gadd4
Even though we boarded them up
F                  Am7
  Chandelier still flickering here
         F             Gadd4               C
'Cause I can't pretend it's okay when it's not, no it's not
Gadd4                         F    Gadd4
    It's death by a thousand cuts
 
 
POST CHORUS
 
C               Gadd4      F
    My body, my love, my trust
               Gadd4
But it wasn't enough, it wasn't enough, no, no
