Lorde - Writer In the Dark Chords

[verse 1]
D
 Break the news, you're walking out
C
 To be a good man for someone else
D                             C   Cmaj7
 Sorry I was never good like you
D
 Stood on my chest and kept me down
     C
Hated hearing my name on the lips of a crowd
D                               C
 Did my best to exist just for you

[pre-chorus 1]
Bet you rue the
D                              C
day you kissed a writer in the dark
Bet you rue the
D                              C
day you kissed a writer in the dark
Now she's gonna
D                                 C
play and sing and lock you in her heart
Bet you rue the
D                C             G
day you kissed a writer in the dark

[chorus 1]
G
 I am my mother's child, I'll
  Am             Em
love you 'til my breathing stops
     Am
I'll love you 'til you
  Em             D
call the cops on me
G
 But in our darkest hours, I
  Am          Em
stumbled on a secret power
     Am            Em              D
I'll find a way to be without you, babe

[verse 2]
D
 I still feel you, now and then
C
 Slow like pseudoephedrine
D
 When you see me, will you say I've
 C        Cmaj7
changed?
D
 I ride the subway, read the signs
  C
I let the seasons change my mind
  G                                       D
I love it here since I've stopped needing you

[pre-chorus 2]
Bet you rue the
D                              C
day you kissed a writer in the dark
Bet you rue the
D                              C
day you kissed a writer in the dark
Now she's gonna
D                                 C
play and sing and lock you in her heart
Bet you rue the
D                C             G
day you kissed a writer in the dark

[chorus 2]
G
 I am my mother's child, I'll
Am               Em
love you 'til my breathing stops
     Am
I'll love you 'til you
Em               D
call the cops on me
G
 But in our darkest hours, I
 Am            Em
stumbled on a secret power
     Am            Em              D
I'll find a way to be without you, babe

[chorus 3]
G
 I am my mother's child, I'll
Am               Em
love you 'til my breathing stops
     Am
I'll love you 'til you
 Em              D
call the cops on me
G
 But in our darkest hours, I
 Am           Em
stumbled on a secret power
     Am            Em              D
I'll find a way to be without you, babe
