Props to Abe who helped me out a bit <3.

Not a 100% sure but it sounds pretty ok. Also not sure about the song title, it's new
and I recorded it at a concert and really couldn't see the chords.

Welcome to all comments so I can correct. Thanks <3.

	E     E/C#     A     B7
E E A B7--
E E/C# A B7 Can't pretend that all is well it's like I'm haunted by a ghost
E E/C# A B7 There are times I cannot speak your name but I catch it in my throat
E E/C# A B7 And if I don't sing this song it's out of fear of sour notes (not sure
if that's 'of' OR 'or') Progression x 1 (E E/C# A B7)
E E/C# A B7 Oh I feel like a miser Oh I feel low and mean
E E/C# A B7 For accusing you of stealing what I offered you for free
E E/C# A B7 Oh it beggars the belief sometimes what thieves we lovers be
Progression x 1 (E E/C# A B7)
E E/C# A B7 Oh I don't know who you're with these days might be with someone new
E E/C# A B7 And if you are I hope he treats you like a lover ought to do
E E/C# A B7 But whoever makes you happy it don't really matter who
E E/C# A B7 I've got a new lover now I hope you've got a lover too
Progression x 4 (E E/C# A B7)
E E/C# A B7 Praise the water under bridges praise the time we say we'll heal
E E/C# A B7 Praise the fonder that still grows on the absent heart and fields
E E/C# A B7 Praise be to this pain these days it's all I seem to feel (not
sure on lyric? all the same i fear? all the same i feel?) Progression x 1 (E E/C# A B7)
E E/C# A B7 Perhaps the fault was mine perhaps I just ignored
E E/C# A B7 Who you were always gonna be instead of who I took you for
E E/C# A B7 I've been treated worse it's true still I expected more
Progression x 1 (E E/C# A B7)
E E/C# A B7 But I will not chase your shadow as you go from room to room
E E/C# A B7 Dropping handkerchiefs and daggers smoking guns and other clues
E E/C# A B7 For what someone did with someone and who did what to who
E E/C# A B7 I've got a new lover now I hope you've got a lover too.
Progression x 4
E E/C# A B7 I got a new lover now she knows just what I need
E E/C# A B7 When I wake up in the night she can read me back my dreams
E E/C# A B7 And she loves them cause she never needs to tell me what they mean
Progression x 1 (E E/C# A B7)
E E/C# A B7 I got a new lover now I know that she's not mine
E E/C# A B7 And I only want to hold her I don't need to read her mind
E E/C# A B7 And she only looks like you when she's in a certain light
Progression x 1 (E E/C# A B7)
E E/C# A B7 I hope you've got a lover now hope you've got somebody who
E E/C# A B7 Can give you what you need like i couldn't seem to do
E E/C# A B7 But if you're sad and you are lonesome and you've got nobody true
E E/C# A B7 I'd be lying if I said that didn't make me happy too.
Progression x 1 (E E/C# A B7)
E E/C# A B7 I'd be lying if I said that didn't make me happy too.
Progression x 4 Ring out E
