[Verse]
       Gm
Let me hold you
        A#
For the last time
         D#
It's the last chance to feel again
        Gm
But you broke me
      A#             D#      Cm
Now I can't feel anything
       Gm
When I love you,
        A#
It's so untrue
  D#
I can't even convince myself
         Gm
When I'm speaking,
         A#                D#    Cm
It's the voice of someone else


[Pre-chorus]
      D#     F  Gm
Oh it tears me up
  D#           F          Dm
I try to hold on, but it hurts too much
  D#         F              Dm            D#~               D#
I try to forgive, but it's not enough to make it all okay


[Chorus]
          Cm              Gm
You can't play on broken strings
          A#       F
You can't feel anything
          Cm                  Gm
That your heart don't want to feel
        A#                             F
I can't tell you something that ain't real
       D#
Oh the truth hurts
    Gm
And lies worse
A#                 F
How can I give anymore
       Cm                Gm          F
When I love you a little less than before


[Verse]
        Gm     A#
Oh what are we doing
       D#
We are turning into dust
        Gm           A#        D#    Cm
Playing house in the ruins of us
        Gm               A#
Running back through the fire
             D#
When there's nothing left to save
          Gm               A#
It's like chasing the very last train
              D#    Cm
when it's too late


[Pre-chorus]
      D#     F  Gm
Oh it tears me up
  D#           F          Dm
I try to hold on, but it hurts too much
  D#         F              Dm            D#~              D#  D#  D#
I try to forgive, but it's not enough to make it all okay


[Chorus]
          Cm              Gm
You can't play on broken strings
          A#       F
You can't feel anything
          Cm                  Gm
That your heart don't want to feel
        A#                             F
I can't tell you something that ain't real
       D#
Oh the truth hurts
    Gm
And lies worse
A#                 F
How can I give anymore
       Cm                Gm          F
When I love you a little less than before


[Verse]
          Gm                  A#
But we're running through the fire
             D#
When there's nothing left to save
          Gm               A#
It's like chasing the very last train
        D#                  Cm~
When we both know it's too late (too late)


[Chorus]
          Cm              Gm
You can't play on broken strings
          A#       F
You can't feel anything
          Cm                  Gm
That your heart don't want to feel
        A#                             F
I can't tell you something that ain't real
         D#
Well the truth hurts
    Gm
And lies worse
A#                 F
How can I give anymore
       Cm                Gm          F
When I love you a little less than before
          Cm                Gm          F
Oh when I love you a little less than before


[Outro]
       Gm               A#
Let me hold you for the last time
         Cm                   D#~
It's the last chance to feel again
