August / Illicit Affairs / My Tears Ricochet | The Eras Tour

≣≣
Tone: [D]
Capo: 3
 
(Verse 1)
[D]Salt air [G]and the rust on your [Em]door
I never needed [A]anything more
[D]Whispers [G]of "Are you sure?"
[Em]"Never have I [A]ever before"
 
 
(Chorus)
But [D]I can see us lost in the memory
[G]August slipped away into a moment in [Em]time
'Cause it was never [A]mine
And [D]I can see us twisted in bedsheets
[G]August sipped away like a bottle of [Em]wine
'Cause you were never [A]mine
 
 
(Verse 2)
[D]Your back [G]beneath the sun
[Em]Wishin' I could [A]write my name on it
[D]Will you call [G]when you're back at school?
[Em]I remember [A]thinkin' I had you
 
 
(Chorus)
But [D]I can see us lost in the memory
[G]August slipped away into a moment in [Em]time
'Cause it was never [A]mine
And [D]I can see us twisted in bedsheets
[G]August sipped away like a bottle of [Em]wine
'Cause you were never [A]mine
 
[D] [G] [Em] [A]
 
 
(Bridge)
[D]Back when we were still changin' for the [G]better
Wanting was enough [Em]
For me, it was enough [A]
To live for the [D]hope of it all
Cancel plans just in [G]case you'd call
And say, "Meet me behind the mall" [Em]
So much for summer love [A]and saying "us"
'Cause you weren't mine [D]to lose [G]
You weren't mine to [Em]lose, oh [A]
 
 
(Chorus)
But [D]I can see us lost in the memory
[G]August slipped away into a moment in [Em]time
'Cause it was never [A]mine
And [D]I can see us twisted in bedsheets
[G]August sipped away like a bottle of [Em]wine
'Cause you were never [A]mine
 
 
(Outro)
[D]'Cause you were never [G]mine
Never [Em]mine
[A]But do you remember?
Remember [D]when I pulled up and said "Get in the car"
And then [G]canceled my plans just in case you'd call?
[Em]Back when I was livin' for the
hope of it all, for the [A]hope of it all
"Meet me behind the mall"
(Remember [D]when I pulled up and said "Get in the car")
(And then [G]canceled my plans just in case you'd call?)
[Em](Back when I was livin' for the hope
of it all, for the [A]hope of it all)
("Meet me behind the mall")
Remember [D]when I pulled up and said "Get in the car"
And then [G]canceled my plans just in case you'd call?
[Em]Back when I was livin' for the hope
of it all (For the [A]hope of it all)
For the hope of it [D]all, for the [G]hope of it all
(For the [Em]hope of it all, for the [A]hope of it all)

[D] [Bm] [G] [D]
 
(Bridge)
[D]And you wanna scream
[D]Don't call me "kid, " don't call me "baby"
[Bm]Look at this godforsaken mess that you made me
[G]You showed me colors you [F#m]know I can't see with [A]anyone else
[D]Don't call me "kid, " don't call me "baby"
[Bm]Look at this idiotic fool you made me
[G]You taught me a secret [F#m]language I can't speak with [A]anyone else
[D]Don't call me "kid, " don't call me "baby"
[Bm]Look at this godforsaken mess that you made me
[G]You showed me colors you [F#m]know I can't see with [A]anyone else
[D]Don't call me "kid, " don't call me "baby"
[Bm]Look at this idiotic fool you made me
[G]You taught me a secret [F#m]language I can't speak with [A]anyone else
 
 
(Outro)
And you [Bm]know [A]damn [G]well
For you, I would [A]ruin myself
[D]A million little times
[Bm]And that's the thing about illicit affairs [G] [A]

[F#m] [E] [C#m] [D]
[F#m] [E] [C#m] [D]
 
(Verse 1)
[F#m]We gather [E]here, we line up, [C#m]weepin' in a sunlit room [D]
And [F#m]if I'm on [E]fire, [C#m]you'll be made of ashes, [D]too
[F#m]Even on my worst day, [E]did I deserve, babe
[C#m]All the hell you [D]gave me?
[F#m]'Cause I loved you, [E]I swear I loved you [C#m]
'Til my dying [D]day
 
 
(Chorus)
[A] [Bm]I didn't [F#m]have it in [D]myself to go with [A]grace [Bm]
And you're the [F#m]hero flying [D]around, [A]saving face [Bm]
And if I'm [F#m]dead to you, why [D]are you at the wake? [A]
Cursing my [Bm]name, wishing I [F#m]stayed
Look at how [D]my tears ricochet
 
[A] [D] [F#m] [Bm]
 
(Verse 2)
[F#m]We gather [E]stones, [C#m]never knowing what they'll mean [D]
[F#m]Some to [E]throw, [C#m]some to make a diamond ring [D]
You [F#m]know I didn't want [E]to have to haunt you
[C#m]But what a ghostly scene [D]
[F#m]You wear the same jewels [E]that I gave you [C#m]
As you bury [D]me
 
 
(Chorus)
[A] [Bm]I didn't [F#m]have it in [D]myself to go with [A]grace [Bm]
'Cause when I'd [F#m]fight, you used to [D]tell me I [A]was brave [Bm]
And if I'm [F#m]dead to you, why [D]are you at the wake? [A]
Cursing my [Bm]name, wishing I [F#m]stayed
Look at how [D]my tears ricochet
 
 
(Bridge)
And I can go anywhere I want
Anywhere I want, just not [A]home
And you can aim [Bm]for my heart, go for blood [F#m]
But you would still [D]miss me in your [A]bones
And I still [Bm]talk to you [F#m](When I'm [D]screaming at the [A]sky)
And when you can't [Bm]sleep at night [F#m](You hear my [D]stolen lullabies)
 
[A] [Bm] [F#m] [D]
 
(Chorus)
I didn't [F#m]have it in [D]myself to go with [A]grace [Bm]
And so the [F#m]battleships will [D]sink beneath [A]the waves [Bm]
You had to [F#m]kill me, but it [D]killed you just the [A]same
Cursing my [Bm]name, wishing I stayed [F#m]
You turned into your [D]worst fears
[A]And you're tossing out [Bm]blame, drunk on this pain [F#m]
Crossing out the [D]good years
And you're [A]cursing my [Bm]name, wishing I [F#m]stayed
Look at how [D]my tears ricochet
 
[A] [Bm] [F#m] [D]
