        Bm       G       A       D       Em

[Intro]: D  Bm  A  G x2

[Verse 1]
 D                  Bm                   A      G
 Lying next to you, wishing I could disappear, ay,
 D                       Bm                   A       G
 let you fall asleep and vanish out into thin air, ay ayy...
          Bm              G              D                  A
 It's the elephant in the room and we pretend that we don't see it...
          Bm             G                Em                    A
 It's the avalanche that looms above our heads, that we don't believe in...


[Chorus]
 D                     Bm                     A     G                    
 Trying to be perfect, trying not to let you down, yeah...
 D                       Bm                         A     G
 Honesty is honestly the hardest thing for me right now, yeah.
           Bm                    G 
 While the floors underneath our feet are crumbling,
     D                 A   
 the walls we built together, tumbling,
 Bm                 G               Em
 I still stand here holding up the roof, 
           A
 cuz it's easier than telling the truth...

Bm   G    D   A...

[Verse 2]
 D                              Bm                 A      G
 I still keep your photographs, I remember how we used to laugh...
 D                             Bm                   A       G
 I can keep on losing sleep if you're ok with being torn in half.
          Bm              G              D                  A
 It's the elephant in the room and we pretend that we don't see it...
         Bm              G               Em                   A
 It's an avalanche that looms above our heads, and we don't believe it...


[Chorus]

 D                     Bm                     A     G                    
 Trying to be perfect, trying not to let you down, yeah...
 D                       Bm                         A     G
 Honesty is honestly the hardest thing for me right now, yeah.
           Bm                    G 
 While the floors underneath our feet are crumbling,
     D                 A   
 the walls we built together, tumbling,
 Bm                 G               Em
 I still stand here holding up the roof, 
           A
 cuz it's easier than telling the truth...

[Bridge]
Bm      A                          G  
 Stop ignoring that our hearts are mourning, and let the rain come in...
Bm       A                     G                          A     Bm  A
 Stop pretending that it's not ending, and let the end begin...
 G     D   Bm   A   G
 oh, yeah....

[Chorus]
 
 D                     Bm                     A     G                    
 Trying to be perfect, trying not to let you down, yeah...
 D                       Bm                         A     G
 Honesty is honestly the hardest thing for me right now, yeah.
           Bm                    G 
 While the floors underneath our feet are crumbling,
     D                 A   
 the walls we built together, tumbling,
 Bm                 G               Em
 I still stand here holding up the roof, 
           A                        Bm    G    D    
 cuz it's easier than telling the truth...
      A                         Bm    G    D    A...
 It's easier than telling the truth...
