[Verse]
Em                     A
I want you to know that I'm happy for you.
Em                    A
I wish nothing but the best for you both.
        Em
Another version of me Is she preverted like me?
          A
Would she go down on you in a theatre?
               Em
Does she speak eloquently?And would she have your baby?
               A
I'm sure she'd make a really excellent mother.


[Pre-Chorus]
           Em
'Cause the love that you gave that we made
               G                            A
wasn't able to make it enough for you to be open wide. No,
    Em
and everytime you speak her name
         G
does she know how you told me you'd hold me
      A
until you died? 'Til you died,

but you're still alive.


[Chorus]
        E            D
And I'm here to remind you
           G                      A
of the mess you left when you went away.
         E        D
It's not fair to deny me
         G                   A
of the cross I bare that you gave to me.
A
You, you, you oughta know.


[Verse]
Em
You seem very well.
A
Things look peaceful.
Em
I'm not quite as well.
A
I thought you should know.


[Bridge]
          Em
Did you forget about me Mr. Duplicity?
          A
I hate to bug you in the middle of dinner.
         Em
It was a slap in the face how quickly I was replaced,
             A
and are you thinking of me when you fuck her?


[Pre-Chorus]
           Em
'Cause the love that you gave that we made
              G                            A
wasn't able to make it enough for you to be open wide. No,
    Em
and everytime you speak her name
         G
does she know how you told me you'd hold me
   A
until you died? 'Til you died, but you're still alive.


[Chorus]
        E        D
And I'm here to remind you
           G                      A
of the mess you left when you went away.
         E        D
It's not fair to deny me
         G                   A
of the cross I bare that you gave to me.

You, you, you oughta know.


[Pre-Chorus]
          Em
Cause the joke that you laid in the bed that was me,
         G                          A
and I'm not gonna fadeas soon as you close your eyes, and you know it.
    Em
And everytime I scratch my nails down
G
someone else's back
           A
I hope you feel it. Can you feel it?


[Chorus]
        E            D
And I'm here to remind you
           G                      A
of the mess you left when you went away.
         E        D
It's not fair to deny me
         G                   A
of the cross I bare that you gave to me.

You, you, you oughta know.


[Chorus]
    E            D
I'm here to remind you
           G                      A
of the mess you left when you went away.
         E        D
It's not fair to deny me
         G                   A
of the cross I bare that you gave to me.

You, you, you oughta know.
