Key: C
        C                             D 
If you ever feel like I did when you slip between the cracks 
      G                                   Em 
Maybe then you?ll see how nothing stays in tact 
   C                           D 
And when my life is over maybe you can understand 
                    G                          Em 
That I planned everything, but nothing went as planned 
             Am                    D     (stop) 
It?s nothing personal, I just want you to know 
                G 
I tried to understand 

G Em Am D G D (x2) 

D            G                           Em 
You tortured me with the silence in your throat 
                 Am                            D 
And you tortured me with the stillness in your bones 
               G                        Em 
You kicked the chair from underneath my feet 
                       Am                                 D       
You must have seen the noose made out of roses that I wore to guarantee 
                  G                     Em                    
That you couldn?t go, that you wouldn?t leave me all alone  
             Am                             D                      
Cause if you did, you?d see my body hanging just above the floor 
         G                           Em                      
Beside a note, to tell the world how terrible it was 
           Am                           Em                         
To fall in love with someone capable of cutting out my tongue,  
   C                  D              G            
Of cutting out my, of cutting out my tongue 

                 D                            Em   
So did you just forget, or do you really not remember 
                    C                           G         
The bullets that we took so we could stay alive forever 
                 D                            Em          
And did you just forget, or do you really not remember 
                   C      (stop)                          G     
The poison that we drank, so that at least we?d die together 

Em Am D G D   

G    D          G               Em      
It?s comforting to fall asleep alone 
          Am                                    D          
And it?s comforting because it?s all I?ve ever known 
            G            Em    
If I should die before I wake 
          Am                              D      
I pray to God my soul will find a peaceful place 
            G                  Em     
Between the roses, between the roses 
            Am                          D       
Because the earth is only pretty for so long 
            G                  Em      
Between the roses, between the roses 
             C              Am           D         G 
You were the only one I?ll trust to sing along 
   Em               D              G       
To sing between the roses, sing my song 

                 D                            Em   
So did you just forget, or do you really not remember 
                    C                           G         
The bullets that we took so we could stay alive forever 
                 D                            Em          
And did you just forget, or do you really not remember 
                   C      (stop)                          G     
The poison that we drank, so that at least we?d die together 

G                                           
As the sun went down, our hearts were heavy 
Em                                           
We knew it was time, but I was not ready 
Am                           
To let you go, to say goodbye 
D                                    
To a love I thought would never die 
G                                           
You were quiet as hell and you looked so sad 
     Em                                
As I kissed your lips with my regrets 
Am                                       
In hopes that maybe we?d pretend 
D                        (stop)        
Forever never had to end 

G                        
La, la, la, la, la 
Em                               
La, la, la, la, la la la la 
  Am                     
That maybe we'd pretend 
 D                                      (strum slowly over all strings)  
Our hope had died, but our love?s not dead 

   C                                      D                             
So grab your black umbrella and make your way down to the graveyard 
             G                                  Em          
Where you?ll find the tree to which I tied this rope 
    C                                  D                    
And nothing is for certain, that?s the only thing I know 
        G                                Em    
But I?m certain that it?s time for me to go 
                Am               D       
It?s nothing personal, it simply hurts to know 
               G     
That I will be alone
