How To Play

Capo:6th fret

VERSE 1
                Am
I can see the storms, in her eyes now,
    Am7 Cadd9/A C
I'm falling overboard, in the waves.
Cmaj7        Dm
In over my head and she's a high tide,
Dsus2  Am/D  F         G
That keeps pushing me away.
                         Am
I thought that we would build this together,
    Am7  Cadd9/A  G
But everything I touch just seems to break.
     Gsus4  Dm
Am I your sail or your anchor?
Dsus2      F                    G
Am I the calm or the hurricane?
           G
I feel the ground start to shake,
           F/C              Fmaj7/C
I hear a voice shouting, "Move!",
              G         F/C
But there is no fucking way, I'd leave you.
 
CHORUS
               Am     F      C    G
So I'll just hold you like a hand grenade,
     Am      F      C     G
You touch me like a razor blade,
   Am        F        C     G           Am F C G
I wish there was some other way right now, oooooh.
            Am      F          C     G
And like a house on fire we're up in flames,
     Am       F         C       G
I'd burn here if that's what it takes,
    Am     F      C         G     Am F C  G   F5
To let you know I won't let go of you, ooooh.
 
 
VERSE 2
             Am
And is the soundtrack to our lives,
Am7  G
The bang of a slamming door?
     Gsus4           Dm
What happens when we all start to feel like,
   Dsus2 F/C       G
Nothing matters anymore?
                   Am
Every day like a chambered round,
                Am7  G
A trigger pulled, a hammer click,
               Gsus4 Dm                          Dsus2
A breath we hold, a world outside I can't control,
     F/C          G
No matter what I do.
 
CHORUS
   G           Am     F      C    G
So I'll just hold you like a hand grenade,
     Am      F      C     G
You touch me like a razor blade,
   Am        F        C     G           Am F C G
I wish there was some other way right now, oooooh.
            Am      F          C     G
And like a house on fire we're up in flames,
     Am       F         C       G
I'd burn here if that's what it takes,
    Am     F      C         G     Am F C  G   F5   G
To let you know I won't let go of you, ooooh, ooooooh.
 
BRIDGE
                 Am
And how is it a thing?
                    G
That we just wanna hurt each other,
                     F/C
I'm waiting out the rain,
                     G
Cause life is gonna rain forever.
                  Am
Someday you will learn
                 G
That all I ever did was for you,
                  F
And I would do it all again,
               G
I would do it all again.
 
 
CHORUS
                  Am     F      C    G
'Till then I'll hold you like a hand grenade,
     Am      F      C     G
You touch me like a razor blade,
   Am        F        C     G           Am F C G
I wish there was some other way right now, oooooh
        Am      F          C     G
Like a house on fire we're up in flames,
     Am       F         C       G
I'd burn here if that's what it takes,
    Am     F      C         G     Am F C  G
To let you know I can't let go of you, ooooh.
 
OUTRO
   Am F C G
Of you,
   Am F C G
of you,
   Am F C G
of you,
   Am F C G F
of you.
