(Intro)
 
My, my, my, my (my, my, my, my)
 
My, my, my, my (my, my, my, my)
 
[C] My, my[G/B]my, my, my
[Am] My, my,[C]my, my, my
[F] My, my[Am]my, my, my
[Dm] My, my,[Gsus4]my, my,[G]my, my
 
 
(Chorus 1)
[C]Saying goodbye is [G/B]death by a thousand [Am]cuts
Flashbacks [C]waking me up
[F] I get drunk, but it's [Am]not enough
'Cause the [Dm]morning comes and you're [Gsus4]not my [G]baby
 
[C] I look through the [G/B]windows of this [Am]love
Even though we [C]boarded them up
[F] Chandelier still [Am]flickering here
'Cause I [Dm]can't pretend [Gsus4]it's o[G]okay when it's [C]not
[G/B] It's death by a [Em]thousand [F]cuts [G]
 
 
(Verse 1)
[C] I dress to kill my time[G/B]time, I take the long way [Em]home [F]
I ask the traffic lights if it'll [G]be alright, they say, "I don't know"
[C] And what once was ours[G/B]ours, is no one's [Em]now [F]
I see you everywhere, the only [G]thing we share is this small town
[C] You said it was a great love[G/B]love, one for the ages[Em]ages [F]
But if the story's over, why am I [G]still writing pages?
 
 
(Chorus 2)
'Cause [C]saying goodbye is [G/B]death by a thousand [Am]cuts
Flashbacks [C]waking me up
[F] I get drunk, but it's [Am]not enough
'Cause the [Dm]morning comes and you're [Gsus4]not my [G]baby
 
[C] I look through the [G/B]windows of this [Am]love
Even though we [C]boarded them up
[F] Chandelier still [Am]flickering here
'Cause I [Dm]can't pretend [Gsus4]it's o[G]okay when it's [C]not
[G/B] It's death by a [Em]thousand [F]cuts [G]
 
 
(Verse 2)
[C] My heart, my hips, my body, my [G/B]love
Tryna find a part of me that [Em]you didn't [F]touch
Gave up on me like I was a bad [G]drug
Now I'm searching for signs in a haunted [C]club
 
Our songs, our films, united we [G/B]stand
Our country, guess it was a [Em]lawless [F]land
Quiet my fears at the touch of your [G]hand
Paper cut stings from our paper-thin [C]plans
 
My time, my wine, my spirit, my [G/B]trust
Tryna find a part of me you [Em]didn't take [F]up
Gave you too much but it wasn't e[G]enough
But I'll be alright, it's just a thousand[C]thousand cuts [G/B] [Am] [G]
 
 
(Chorus 3)
[F] I get drunk, but it's [Am]not enough
[Dm] 'Cause you're [Gsus4]not my [G]baby
[C] I look through the [G/B]windows of this [Am]love
Even though we [C]boarded them up
[F] Chandelier still [Am]flickering here
'Cause I [Dm]can't pretend [Gsus4]it's o[G]okay when it's [C]not, no it's not
[G/B] It's death by a [Em]thousand [F]cuts [G] (you didn't touch)
 
 
(Post-Chorus)
Tryna find a part of me that you didn't [C]touch
My body, my [G/B]love, my trust (it's death by a [Em]thousand [F]cuts)
But it wasn't e[G]enough, it wasn't enough, no, no
 
 
(Outro)
[C] [G/B] [Am] I take the [C]long way home
[F] I ask the [Am]traffic lights if it'll [Dm]be alright
They say, "[Gsus4]"I [G]don't know"
