[Intro]

Am C
Am C
Am C
G Am

[Verse 1]

Am C
Come on skinny love just last the year
Am C
Pour a little salt we were never here
Am C
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
G Am
Staring at the sink of blood and crushed veneer

Am C
I tell my love to wreck it all
Am C
Cut out all the ropes and let me fall
Am C
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
G Am
Right in the moment this order’s tall

[Chorus]

C
I told you to be patient
G F
I told you to be fine
C
I told you to be balanced
G F
I told you to be kind
C
In the morning I’ll be with you
G F
But it will be a different “kind”
C
I’ll be holding all the tickets
G F
And you’ll be owning all the fines

[Verse 2]

Am C
Come on skinny love what happened here
Am C
Suckle on the hope in lite brassiere
Am C
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
G Am
Sullen load is full; so slow on the split

[Chorus]

C
I told you to be patient
G F
I told you to be fine
C
I told you to be balanced
CG F
I told you to be kind
C
Now all your love is wasted?
G F
Then who the hell was I?
C
Now I’m breaking at the bridges
G F
And at the end of all your lines

[Outro]

C
Who will love you?
G F
Who will fight?
C G F
Who will fall far behind?
