Taylor Swift - Death By A Thousand Cuts Chords

[intro]
My, my, my, my (my, my, my, my)
My, my, my, my (my, my, my, my)

E        B
  My, my, my, my
C#m        B
   My, my, my, my
A        C#m
  My, my, my, my
F#m         B
   My, my, my,  my

[chorus 1]
E                 B                 C#m
Saying goodbye is death by a thousand cuts
           B
Flashbacks waking me up
A                       C#m
  I get drunk, but it's not enough
           F#m                       B
'Cause the morning comes and you're not my baby

E                   B               C#m
  I look through the windows of this love
               B
Even though we boarded them up
A                  C#m
  Chandelier still flickering here
         F#m             B                  E
'Cause I can't pretend it's okay when it's not
 B                           A    B
    It's death by a thousand cuts

[verse 1]
E                       B                          A
  I dress to kill my time, I take the long way home
                                  B
I ask the traffic lights if it'll be alright, they say, "I don't know"
E                       B                A
  And what once was ours, is no one's now
                               B
I see you everywhere, the only thing we share is this small town
E                            B                 A
  You said it was a great love, one for the ages
                              B
But if the story's over, why am I still writing pages?

[chorus 2]
       E                 B                 C#m
'Cause saying goodbye is death by a thousand cuts
           B
Flashbacks waking me up
A                      C#m
  I get drunk, but it's not enough
           F#m                        B
'Cause the morning comes and you're not my baby

E                   B            C#m
  I look through the windows of this love
               B
Even though we boarded them up
A                  C#m
  Chandelier still flickering here
         F#m            B                       E
'Cause I can't pretend it's okay when it's not
B                            A    B
    It's death by a thousand cuts

[verse 2]
E                                B
  My heart, my hips, my body, my love
                                        A
Tryna find a part of me that you didn't touch
                                B
Gave up on me like I was a bad drug
                                        E
Now I'm searching for signs in a haunted club

                                 B
Our songs, our films, united, we stand
                                    A
Our country, guess it was a lawless land
                                      B
Quiet my fears with the touch of your hand
                                    E
Paper cut stings from our paper-thin plans

                                B
My time, my wine, my spirit, my trust
                                        A
Tryna find a part of me you didn't take up
                                 B
Gave you too much, but it wasn't enough
                                              E B C#m B
But I'll be alright, it's just a thousand cuts

[chorus 3]
A                       C#m
  I get drunk, but it's not enough
F#m                 B
   'Cause you're not my baby
E                    B               C#m
  I look through the windows of this love
               B
Even though we boarded them up
A                  C#m
  Chandelier still flickering here
         F#m             B                   E
'Cause I can't pretend it's okay when it's not, no it's not
B                            A    B
    It's death by a thousand cuts   (you didn't touch)

[post-chorus]
                                        E
Tryna find a part of me that you didn't touch
            B                                 A
My body, my love, my trust (it's death by a thousand cuts)
               B
But it wasn't enough, it wasn't enough, no, no

[outro]
E  B  C#m            B
           I take the long way home
A           C#m                      F#m
  I ask the traffic lights if it'll be alright
           B
They say, "I don't know"
