Tabbed by: adslam3


This is the first song off of the "bruises from your bad dreams" EP.

For the verses, you should play the A like a barre chord (577655).
I've seen Jarrod use an open A (-02220) for the chorus.

The chords ending in "5" are just power chords: D5 -577-- , C#5 -466--,B5 -244--.A chord chart is at the bottom.ENJOY.
VERSE 1
AIt's been several hours,
F#mSince our incident
BmClothes are torn, glass shattered
D5 C#5 B5 EIt was a year leading up to this event,
D5 C#5 B5 EShe had a melt down, cried wolf, and can't be trusted
AYou took the biggest knife in the kitchen you could find,
F#mCalled the police and claimed that I was trying,
Bm D ETrying to kill you, when in fact I was trying to save your life
AYou had me trapped in my own apartment,
F#m24 hours, dodging clenched fists,
Bm D EScribbling letters, bidding your friends and family farewell
CHORUS
A F#mDesperate hands and a hollow heart,
Bm D EWhiskey unleash the beast starving inside of me,
A F#mNo one will understand us.
Bm D EFeel less like her lover and more like her father
VERSE 2
AAre you gonna be a good girl?
F#mCan you make me that promise?
BmNot to lash out on me,
D5 C#5 B5 EHow is it that you made my life a living hell,
D5 C#5 B5 EBut I still find you to be irreplaceable
AWhich of my things did you sneak out last night?
F#mIn hopes to bring us together one last time
Bm D ERansom being the only thing that you have left
CHORUS
A F#mDesperate hands and a hollow heart,
Bm D EWhiskey unleash the beast starving inside of me,
A F#mNo one will understand us.
Bm D EFeel less like her lover and more like her father
BRIDGE
F#m D A EThreatened to throw yourself out of the car
F#m D A EIn rush hour traffic, sixteen miles an hour.
F#m D A EThere's a better way, don't you think?
F#m D A EJust if we wait until we get home
CHORUS 3/End
A F#mDesperate hands and a hollow heart,
Bm D EWhiskey unleash the beast starving inside of me,
A F#mNo one will understand us.
Bm D EFeel less like her lover and more like her father
