Broken strings    (video)    (intro)

 

                 Am                    C

1. Let me hold you for the last time

                 F

    it's the last chance to feel again,

                   Am                     C                   F    

    but you broke me, now I can't feel anything.

                 Am                     C

    When I love you, it's so untrue,

       F

    I can't even convince myself

                      Am                     C                           F    

    when I'm speaking, it's the voice of someone else.

 

                F     G   Am   F              G            Em

    Oh, it tears me up, I try to hold on, but it hurts too much,

       F            G               Em                    F                       

    I try to forgive, but it's not enough to make it all okay.

 

                 Dm                    Am                      C           G 

You can't play on broken strings, you can't feel anything 

                Dm                        Am

that your heart don't want to feel,

            C                                          G

I can't tell you something that ain't real.

               F                    Am               C                            G

Oh, the truth hurts and lies worse, how can I give anymore,

            Dm                   Am               G

when I love you a little less than before ?

 

                    Am        C      

3. Oh, what are we doing ?

                  F

    We are turning into dust,

                 Am                C          F   

    playing house in the ruins of us.

                   Am                       C     

    Running back through the fire.

                           F

    when there's nothing left to save,

                  Am                    C                                  F           Dm

    it's like chasing the very last train, when it's too late, too late.

 

 

 

 

 

 

                F     G   Am   F              G            Em

    Oh, it tears me up, I try to hold on, but it hurts too much,

       F            G               Em                    F               

    I try to forgive, but it's not enough to make it all okay.

 

                 Dm                    Am                      C           G 

You can't play on broken strings, you can't feel anything 

                Dm                        Am

that your heart don't want to feel,

            C                                          G

I can't tell you something that ain't real.

               F                    Am               C                            G

Oh, the truth hurts and lies worse, how can I give anymore,

            Dm                   Am               G

when I love you a little less than before ?

 

                     F                             Am

    But we're running through the fire,

                            C                  Dm

    when there's nothing left to save.

                    F                      Am

    It's like chasing the very last train,

                     C                         Em       Dm

    when we both know it's too late (too late).

 

                                                Dm                   Am              G

+ CHORUS      +  Oh, when I love you a little less than before.

 

                Am                     C

    Let me hold you for the last time,

               Dm                             F

    it's the last chance to feel again.
