Brief Intro: roll an Em9...

Cm? G Em9 Cm G A

He played himself, didn't need me to give him hell

            [Em9]         [Cm]         [G]      [A]

Em9 Cm G G6/B * hit low E four times

Knew we'd put up with every-thing

Hit bass note for each chord with quick little strums

(Hit bass note twice for the regular Em chord)

[G6/B]        [D]          [Em]            [G6/B]      [D] [Em] 
I want to hurt him, I want to give him pain

       [G6/B]        [D]       [Em]           [G6/B]   [D] [Em] [G] 
I'm a ro---------man candle, my head is full of flames


Em9 Cm? G A Em9 Cm? G A

I'm hallu----cina-----ting,        hallu----cina----ting


Em9 Cm? G A

I hear you cry, your tears are cheap

Em9 Cm? G *strum A then G fast

Wet hot red swollen cheeks, fall asleep

Chorus:

[G6/B]            [D]        [Em]            [G6/B]    [D] [Em] 
I want to hurt him, I want to give him pain

I'm a ro---------man candle, my head is full of flames

I wa-----nt to hurt him,     I wa----nt to hurt him


  [G6/B]      [D]        [Em]         [G]     [G6/B]      [D] [Em] [G]
