 C#m
it's not a silly little moment
 AE
It's not the storm before the calm
 C#m
This is the deep and dyin breath of
 AE
This love we've been workin on

 C#m
Can't seem to hold you like I want to
 AE
So I can feel you in my arms
 C#m
Nobody's gonna come and save you
 AE
We pulled too many false alarms

REFREIN:
 B
We're goin down
 C#mA
And you can see it too
 B
We're goin down
 C#mA
And you know that we're doomed
 C#mAE
My dear, We're slow dancing in a burnin room

 C#m
I was the one you always dreamed of
 AE
You were the one I tried to draw
 C#m
How dare you say it's nothing to me
 AE
Baby, you're the only light I ever saw
 C#m
I'll make the most of all the sadness
 AE
You'll be a bitch because you can
 C#m
You try to hit me just hurt me
So you leave me feeling dirty
 AE
Because you can't understand

REFREIN:
 B
We're goin down
 C#mA
And you can see it too
 B
We're goin down
 C#mA
And you know that we're doomed
 C#mAE
My dear, We're slow dancing in a burnin room

SOLO: | C#m | A E | C#m | A E |

 C#m(7BA
Go cry about it why don't you        
Go cry about it why don't you
Go cry about it why don't you
 C#mAE
My dear, We're slow dancing in a burnin room

Don't you think we oughta know by now
Don't you think we shoulda learned somehow
Don't you think we oughta know by now
Don't you think we shoulda learned somehow
Don't you think we oughta know by now

Don't you think we shoulda learned somehow
Don't you think we shoulda learned somehow
Don't you think we shoulda learned somehow
Don't you think we shoulda learned somehow
Don't you think we shoulda learned somehow
