Intro: Bass G---D
 
 
VERSE 1
    G
I'm throwing away pictures
that i never should have
             D
taken in the first place
         G
and it's cold in my apartment
as I'm changing all the colors
         D                      A
from the brightest reds to grays
 
 
REFRAIN 2
          Bm
well it's 3 o'clock
on monday morning
G
I'm just hoping you're
           D       A
not seeing his face
          Bm
i've been getting calls
in these hotel rooms
G
long enough to know
            D
that it was him
                  A
that took my place
 
 
CHORUS 1
                D
and i hope this makes
you happy now
that the flame we
G
had is burning out
and i hope you like your
D/F#
pictures facing down
               A
as even broken hearts
may have their doubts
 
 
Interlude: Bass G---D
 
 
VERSE 2
        G
and I'm burning 
all the letters
hoping that i might forget
            D
her and her bad taste
         G
that she left when 
she was leaving me
a life of barely breathing
       D                       A
as she walked out of this place
 
 
REFRAIN 2
        Bm
and you dropped the note 
and we changed key
    G
you changed yourself 
and i changed me
  D
i really didn't see us
        A
singing through this
          Bm
then you screamed the
bridge and i
cried the verse
        G
and our chorus came
out unrehearsed
         D
and you smiled the 
whole way through it
        A
i guess maybe that's
what's worse
 
 
(Repeat Chorus 1)
 
 
CHORUS 2
and I'm taking all your
Bm
memories off the shelf
and i don't need
       G
you or anybody else
                  D
so take a look at me
see what you want to see
                 A
when you get home
 
 
BRIDGE
Bm
take me home
i'd rather die
             G
than be with you
take me home
you have a problem
         D
with the truth
take me home
because this happens
      A
every time
i knew it would...
i knew it would...
(Repeat)
 
 
(Repeat Chorus 1)
(Repeat chorus 2)
