F        C  
Fatefully  
           Am                       G  
I tried to pick my battles 'til the battle picked me  
F      C  
Misery  
         Am             G  
Like the war of words I shouted in my sleep  
F       C  
And you passed right by  
Am                  G  
I was in the alley, surrounded on all sides  
F         C  
The knife cuts both ways  
       G  
If the shoe fits, walk in it 'til your high heels break  

F                   C  
And I fell from the pedestal  
               G  
Right down the rabbit hole  
           Am  
Long story short, it was a bad time  
F               C  
Pushed from the precipices  
             G  
Clung to the nearest lips  
           Am  
Long story short, it was the wrong guy  
F       C               G  
Now I'm all about you  
    Am        G        F  
I'm all about you, ah  
C           G  
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah  
    Am        G  
I'm all about you, ah  

C                   G                          F  
I used to think one day we'd tell the story of us  

How we met and the sparks flew instantly  
C             G                      F  
People would say, 'They're the lucky ones'  
C                  G                       F  
I used to know my place was a spot next to you  

Now I'm searching the room for an empty seat  
C                          G                     F  
'Cause lately I don't even know what page you're on  
G                 Am  
Oh, a simple complication  
          F                 C  
Miscommunications lead to fall out  
F  
So many things that I wish you knew  
G  
So many walls that I can't break through  
C                G                  F  
Now I'm standing alone in a crowded room  
                F  
And we're not speaking  
C                G                  F  
And I'm dying to know is it killing you  

Like it's killing me, yeah  
Am                   G                    C  
I don't know what to say since a twist of fate  
                 F  
When it all broke down  
        Am                  G                  F  
And the story of us looks a lot like a tragedy now  

Next chapter  

(G  Am  F )  

C  
This is looking like a contest  
F  
Of who can act like they care less  
    Am                     G              F  
But I liked it better when you were on my side  
C  
The battle's in your hands now  
F  
But I would lay my armor down  
   Am              G                F  
If you'd say you'd rather love than fight  

F      C  
Past me  
         Am                  G  
I wanna tell you not to get lost in these petty things  
F         C  
Your nemeses  
        Am                   G  
Will defeat themselves before you get the chance to swing  
F         C  
And he's passing by  
G                        Am       G  
Rare as the glimmer of a comet in the sky  
F       C  
And he feels like home  
G  
If the shoe fits, walk in it everywhere you go  

C                 G  
Now I'm standing alone  
             F  
In a crowded room and we're not speaking  
C                G                  F  
And I'm dying to know is it killing you  
                   F  
Like it's killing me, yeah  
Am                   G                     C  
I don't know what to say since a twist of fate  
                    F  
'Cause we‚??re going down  
         Am  
And the story of us  
        G                  F        C      G  
Looks a lot like a tragedy now, now, now  
F  
And we're not speaking  
C                G                  F  
And I'm dying to know is it killing you  
                  F  
Like it's killing me, yeah  
Am                   G                     C  
I don't know what to say since a twist of fate  
                   F  
'Cause we're going down  
        Am                  G                  F  
And the story of us looks a lot like a tragedy now
