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


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

but you're still alive.


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


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


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


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


[Chorus]

         F                   G
of the cross I bare that you gave to me.

You, you, you oughta know.


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