CHORUS 1
C                 G/B                 Am
Saying goodbye is death by a thousand cuts
           C
Flashbacks waking me up
F                       Am
  I get drunk, but it's not enough
           Dm                       Gsus4  G
'Cause the morning comes and you're not my baby
 
C                    G/B             Am
  I look through the windows of this love
               C
Even though we boarded them up
F                  Am
  Chandelier still flickering here
         Dm            Gsus4 G             C
'Cause I can't pretend it's okay when it's not
G/B                 Em       F    G
    It's death by a thousand cuts
 
 
VERSE 1
C                        G/B                   Em   F
  I dress to kill my time, I take the long way home
                                  G
I ask the traffic lights if it'll be alright, they say, "I don't know"
C                       G/B           Em   F
  And what once was ours, is no one's now
                               G
I see you everywhere, the only thing we share is this small town
C                             G/B               Em   F
  You said it was a great love, one for the ages
                                  G
But if the story's over, why am I still writing pages?
 
 
CHORUS 2
       C                 G/B                 Am
'Cause saying goodbye is death by a thousand cuts
           C
Flashbacks waking me up
F                       Am
  I get drunk, but it's not enough
           Dm                       Gsus4  G
'Cause the morning comes and you're not my baby
 
C                    G/B             Am
  I look through the windows of this love
               C
Even though we boarded them up
F                  Am
  Chandelier still flickering here
         Dm            Gsus4 G             C
'Cause I can't pretend it's okay when it's not
G/B                 Em       F    G
    It's death by a thousand cuts
 
 
VERSE 2
C                                G/B
  My heart, my hips, my body, my love
                             Em         F
Tryna find a part of me that you didn't touch
                               G
Gave up on me like I was a bad drug
                                         C
Now I'm searching for signs in a haunted club
 
                                G/B
Our songs, our films, united we stand
                            Em      F
Our country, guess it was a lawless land
                                    G
Quiet my fears at the touch of your hand
                                     C
Paper cut stings from our paper-thin plans
 
                                G/B
My time, my wine, my spirit, my trust
                            Em          F
Tryna find a part of me you didn't take up
                                 G
Gave you too much but it wasn't enough
                                         C     G/B  Am  G
But I'll be alright, it's just a thousand cuts
 
 
CHORUS 3
F                       Am
  I get drunk, but it's not enough
Dm               Gsus4  G
   'Cause you're not my baby
C                    G/B             Am
  I look through the windows of this love
               C
Even though we boarded them up
F                  Am
  Chandelier still flickering here
         Dm            Gsus4 G             C
'Cause I can't pretend it's okay when it's not, no it's not
G/B                 Em       F    G
    It's death by a thousand cuts   (you didn't touch)
 
 
POST CHORUS
                                        C
Tryna find a part of me that you didn't touch
            G/B                             Em       F
My body, my love, my trust (it's death by a thousand cuts)
               G
But it wasn't enough, it wasn't enough, no, no
 
 
OUTRO
C  G/B  Am            C
           I take the long way home
F           Am                      Dm
  I ask the traffic lights if it'll be alright
           Gsus4  G     N.C.
They say, "I      don't know"
