Note: Thanks for youtube user madeindar for the chords. This isn't meant to match what
Dallas plays on the record, but I found these chords are good to use when you just want
to play the song in standard tuning. The switch from Em to Em9/D to Cmaj7 is pretty quick so
look out for that. Also, when playing the C, if you lift off your first finger after the
first measure it sounds a bit better. 

(Verse 1)

Em             Em9/D Cmaj7
Your words are like knives

Em                Em9/D Cmaj7
They peel my skin and pierce my soul

Em                  Cmaj7
Your body will burn tonight

Em                    Em9/D Cmaj7  
Though your heart may still remain cold

(Chorus)

Em9/D*            C
And I will blame myself

Em9/D*            C
And I will blame myself

Em9/D*                              C
For holding onto what i hoped would keep you by my side.

Em9/D*        C
I will blame myself

(Verse 2)

Em         Em9/D Cmaj7   
The sheets are stained with

Em       Em9/D Cmaj7
Memories of    your soft kiss

Em           Em9/D Cmaj7
Now this is all I  have

Em            Em9/D Cmaj7
Paper and pen to remember you with

(Chorus)

Em9/D*            C
And I will blame myself

Em9/D*            C
And I will blame myself

Em9/D*                              C
For holding onto what i hoped would keep you by my side.

Em9/D*        C
I will blame myself

(Outro)

G     C
Can I have you?

G     C
Can I have you?

G     C
Can I have you?

G     C         Em9/D*
Can i have you?
