 EmA
I know what you're doing, I see it all to clear
 A9C9/GD9/F#
I only taste the saline when I kiss away your tears.
 EmA
You really had me going, wishing on a star.
 A9C9/GD9/F#
The black holes that surround you are heavier by far,
 EmA
I believed in your confusion, you're so completely torn.
 A9C9/GD9/F#
It must have been that yesterday was the day that I was born.

 EmA
There's not much to examine, nothing left to hide.
 A9C9/GD9/F#
You really can't be serious, to have to ask me why
 FM9/C
I say goodbye...

 C9G9
'Cause I am barely breathing, I can't find the air,
 AmFM9/C
I don't know who I'm kidding imagining you care;
 C9G9
And I could stand here waiting, a fool for another day;
 Am
I don't suppose it's worth the price, it's worth the price
 FM9/C
The price that I would pay yeah, yeah yeah.

 EmA
Everyone keeps asking, "what's it all about?"
 A9C9/GD9/F#
used to be so certain, now I can't figure out.
 EmA
What is this attraction, it's only filled by pain?
 A9C9/GD9/F#
There's nothing left to reason and only you to blame,
 FM9/C
Will it ever change?
(Repeat Chorus)

 C9G9AmFM9/C----
But, I'm thinking it over anyway, yeah, yeah, yeah...

 I rise above   or sink below
 C9Gm13
 With every time    you come and go
FM9/C (pause)
Please, don't come and go...

(Repeat Chorus)
