[Intro]

G C Em7 D x2

[Verse]

G C Em7 D From walkin' home and talkin' loads G C Em7 D Seein' chirps in evenin' clothes with you G C Em7 D From nervous touch and gettin' drunk G C Em7 D To stayin' up and wakin' up with you

[Pre-Chorus]

Em And now we're slippin' at the edge D Em/C# Cmaj Holdin' somethin' we don't need Em Oh, this delusion in our heads D Em/C# Is gonna bring us to our knees

[Chorus]

C G So come on let it gooooooooo Em D Just let it beeeeeeeeee Am G Why don't you be youuuuuuuu D And I'll be me

C G Everything's that's broooooke Em D Leave it to the breeeeeeeeze Am G Why don't you be youuuuuuuu D And I'll be me

And I'll be me

[Instrumental]

G C Em7 D x2

[Verse]

G C Em7 D From throwin' clothes across the floor G C Em7 D To teeth and clothes and slammin' doors at you G C Em7 D If this is all we're livin' for G C Em7 D Why are we doin' it, doin' it, doin' it anymore

[Pre-Chorus] Em D I used to recognize myself Em/C# Cmaj It's funny how reflections change Em D And we're becomin' somethin' else Em/C# I think it's time to walk away

[Chorus] C G So come on let it gooooooooo Em D Just let it beeeeeeeeee Am G Why don't you be youuuuuuuu D And I'll be me

C G Everything's that's broooooke Em D Leave it to the breeeeeeeeze Am G Why don't you be youuuuuuuu D And I'll be me

And I'll be me

[Instrumental]

G C Em7 D

[Bridge]

Am G Tryin' to fit your hand inside of mine

When we know it just don't belong D There's no force on earth Em Could make me feel right, no

Whoa

Am G Tryin' to push this problem up the hill

When it's just too heavy to hold D Em Think now's the time to let it slide

[Chorus]

C G So come on let it gooooooooo Em7 D Just let it beeeeeeeeee C G Why don't you be youuuuuuuu D And I'll be me

C G Everything's that's broooooooke Em7 D Leave it to the breeeeeeeeeeeze C G Let the ashes faaaaaaaaalllll D Forget about me

C G So come on let it gooooooooo Em7 D Just let it beeeeeeeeee C G Why don't you be youuuuuuuu D And I'll be me G And I'll be me

[Outro]

G C Em7 D x2
