I did this chord chart on piano but its meant to be 
picked on a guitar so a lot of this song has 
to be from listening to it to get a feel for 
how to play it on whichever instrument. 

During the verses where they have the first 
chord sustained, they alternate within the lead guitar 
between sus4 and sus2- listen to the song for the
main instrumental melody. 

[Verse 1]
Eb
Oh god this hurts. I'm holding myself together, I'm doing your work. 
(Eb)
You say the damage has been done, and there's not use carrying on like we're 
Eb/Bb (add6)
still in love. 
Bb
You didn't even think to tell me things would be fine. 
Eb                                      [ch]Eb/Ab[/ch]     Eb/Bb
Left nothing to assure your heart still beats with mine. 

[Chorus]
[ch]Eb/Ab[/ch]     Eb/G               Bb                             [ch]Eb/Ab[/ch]
You never meant to cause me pain, you never meant to be that way. 
(Eb/Ab         Eb/G         Bb                       
I don't know if I can last another day in your arms. 
[ch]Eb/Ab[/ch]                    Eb/G                 Bb             [ch]Eb/Ab[/ch] 
Open the curtains to the sun, crawl down the fire escape and run,
(Eb/Ab)                   Bb/G           [ch]Eb/C[/ch]
I gotta get away from the hold you got on me. 

[Verse 2]
Eb   
I've given you all the tools to make me stay. 
(Eb)                     [ch]Eb/Ab[/ch]  Eb/Bb
I'm singing out ultimatums everyday. 

I don't think I'd ever have the strength to up and leave. 
[ch]Eb/Ab[/ch]                         Eb/G            Bb
I wanna love you all the time, won't you just let me? 

[Chorus]
[ch]Eb/Ab[/ch]     Eb/G               Bb                             [ch]Eb/Ab[/ch]
You never meant to cause me pain, you never meant to be that way. 
(Eb/Ab         Eb/G         Bb                       
I don't know if I can last another day in your arms. 
[ch]Eb/Ab[/ch]                    Eb/G                 Bb             [ch]Eb/Ab[/ch] 
Open the curtains to the sun, crawl down the fire escape and run,
(Eb/Ab)                   Bb/G           [ch]Eb/C[/ch]
I gotta get away from the hold you got on me.
