           C#m7
It's not a silly little moment
              Aadd9           E
It's not the storm before the calm
            C#m7
This is the deep and dying breath of
                     Aadd9   E
This love we've been working on

               C#m7
Can't seem to hold you like I want to
          Aadd9          E
So I can feel you in my arms
          C#m7
Nobody's gonna come and save you
                   Aadd9   E
We pulled too many false alarms

            B11
We're going down
             C#m7  Aadd9
And you can see it too
             B11
We're going down
         C#m7            Aadd9
And you know that we're doomed
    C#m7                          Aadd9    E
My dear, we're slow dancing in a burning room

          C#m7
I was the one you always dreamed of
             Aadd9           E
You were the one I tried to draw
             C#m7
How dare you say it's nothing to me
                            Aadd9    E
Baby, you're the only light I ever saw

              C#m7
I'll make the most of all the sadness
            Aadd9              E
You'll be a bitch because you can
           C#m7
You try to hit me just to hurt me

So you leave me feeling dirty
            Aadd9         E
Because you can't understand


            B11
We're going down
            C#m7    Aadd9
And you can see it too
            B11
We're going down
         C#m7             Aadd9
And you know that we're doomed
   C#m7                          Aadd9     E
My dear, we're slow dancing in a burning room
