[Intro]
G#m7 | F#sus4 | Esus2 | B5 F#/A# |
G#m7 | F#sus4 | Esus2 | Esus2    |
 
[Verse 1]
G#m        F#             E                  B5     F#/A# (G#m)
  I have a ringing in my head and no one to help me answer it
G#m             F#              E    | E |
  Even with you close enough to kiss
G#m7    F#sus4       Esus2        B5     F#/A#   (G#m7)
  every minute is arranged, every moment lasts a day.
G#m7                    F#sus4             Esus2  F#
  But thinking about it can't help me let go, I know
 
[Chorus 1]
G#5              F#5                     E5                    B5
 Talk, talking a lot, but it's still talk, gotta love how it's somehow all on me
G#5                  F#5                           E5                B5
 All the petty scenes   and all the pretty things, say whatever you want 'Cause I can laugh it off
 
[Post-Chorus]
G#m         F#         E  B5
  (Ha ha ha-a, ha ha-a-a)  I can laugh it off
G#m         F#         E   | E |
  (Ha ha ha-a, ha ha-a-a)
 
[Verse 2]
G#m           F#                  E        B5       F#/A#  (G#m)
  I must look like I'm running away to you at your faster pace
G#m                F#                 E        B5
  I wonder what it is you could have seen, in me
G#m7            F#sus4        Esus2           B5         F#/A#   (G#m7)
  Yeah, I'm the evil one who said: 'Gonna let everything just happen
G#m7           F#sus4               Esus2                  B5       F#/A#
  Just like my chest, my ears are proud, the collision is such an ugly sound
 
[Pre-Chorus]
G#5 | B5/F# | E5  |  B5  F#5
                       I can hear you now
[Chorus 2]
G#5              F#5                     E5                    B5
 Talk, talking a lot, but it's still talk, gotta love how it's somehow all on me
G#5                  F#5                           E5                B5
 All the petty scenes   and all the pretty things, say whatever you want 'Cause I can laugh it off
G#5              F#5                     E5                     B5
 Talk, talking a lot, but it's still talk, gotta love how it's somehow all on me
G#5                  F#5                           E5                B5
 And all the placings   and all the pretty things, say whatever you want 'Cause I can laugh it off
 
[Post-Chorus]
G#m         F#         E  B5
  (Ha ha ha-a, ha ha-a-a)  I can laugh it off
G#m         F#         E  B5
  (Ha ha ha-a, ha ha-a-a)

(Ha ha ha-a, ha ha-a-a)

G#5              F#5                     E5                    B5
 Talk, talking a lot, but it's still talk, gotta love how it's somehow all on me
G#5                  F#5                           E5                B5
 All the petty scenes   and all the pretty things, say whatever you want 'Cause I can laugh it off
