I saw the previous version and it was in the right key but some
of the chords were wrong so here's the proper version plz rate:)

   E  A  B  C#m     NOTE: You can also place a capo on 2nd and play
e|-0--0--0--0---|         D,G,A,Bm in place of E,A,B,C#m but i prefer
B|-0--0--0--0---|         to play without a capo as it is somewhat easier
G|-1--2--4--6---|         and sounds more fuller
D|-2--2--4--6---|
A|-2--0--2--4---|
E|-0--0--0--0---|

Intro: B, C#m, E, A X2

Verse 1

E                   B                          A
I used to think one day we'd tell the story of us
How we met and the sparks flew instantly
E             B                        A
People would say, "they're the lucky ones"
E                   B                       A
I used to know my place was a spot next to you
                                         E
Now I'm searching the room for an empty seat
                            B                    A
'Cause lately I don't even know what page you're on
B                  C#m
Oh, a simple complication
 E         A              E
Miscommunications lead to fall out
A
So many things that I wish you knew
B
So many walls up I can't break through

Chorus

E                   B                A
Now I'm standing alone In a crowded room And we're not speaking
E                 B                  A
And I'm dying to know Is it killing you Like it's killing me?
C#m                    B                     E                      A
  I don't know what to say Since a twist of fate When it all broke down
         C#m                 B                  A
And the story of us Looks a lot like a tragedy now
Next chapter

B,C#m,E,A

Verse 2

E                     B
How'd we end up this way?
                  A
See me nervously pulling at my clothes And trying to look busy
E                       B             A
And you're doing your best to avoid me
E                          B                          A
I'm starting to think one day I'll tell the story of us

How I was losing my mind when I saw you here
E                  B                              A
But you held your pride like you should have held me
B                             C#m
Oh, we're scared to see the ending
E              A                E
Why are we pretending this is nothing?
   A
I'd tell you I miss you but I don't know how
 B
I've never heard silence quite this loud

Chorus

E                   B                A
Now I'm standing alone In a crowded room And we're not speaking
E                 B                  A
And I'm dying to know Is it killing you Like it's killing me?
C#m                    B                     E                      A
  I don't know what to say Since a twist of fate When it all broke down
         C#m                 B                  A
And the story of us Looks a lot like a tragedy now

B,C#m,E,A X2
Bridge

E
This is looking like a contest
 A 
  Of who can act like they care less
    C#m                     B              A
But I liked it better when you were on my side
E                             A
The battle's in your hands now But I would lay my armor down
    C#m             B                 A
If you'd say you'd rather love than fight
A
So many things that you wish I knew
B
But the story of us might be ending soon

Chorus

E                   B                A
Now I'm standing alone In a crowded room And we're not speaking
E                 B                  A
And I'm dying to know Is it killing you Like it's killing me?
C#m                    B                     E                      A
  I don't know what to say Since a twist of fate When it all broke down
         C#m                 B                 
And the story of us Looks a lot like a tragedy
 A          E  B  A
now now, now         And we're not speaking
E                 B                  A
And I'm dying to know Is it killing you Like it's killing me?
C#m                    B                     E                      
  I don't know what to say Since a twist of fate 
                    A             C#m
'cause we're going down And the story of us
        B                   A
Looks a lot like a tragedy now
