[Verse 1]
A                          Bm 
It’d be so brave of me to walk away
D 
..Leave this apartment, leave this place we taint
         A                            Bm 
Hold my head, sleep on it, keep you waiting
        D 
Draw it out, give you space ’til it pains you

[Refrain]
A                             Bm 
We sit in silence here in the bed we made
D                            
..I sit beside you, wearily taking your weight
          A                         Bm 
You pull back, I reach out, try to save you
        D 
Come undone then go numb, like it’s easy to

[Chorus]
A                        Bm                            D 
..I’m playing all of my cards, sweetheart, but I’m no match for your demons
I know that I won’t beat them
A                        Bm                  D 
Questions I should never ask are all that I seem to ponder lately
As times ahead look hazy
F#m                 E
..What do I have to do
                   D                            E
Just to make you believe so you can cherish me like
I cherish you?

[Interlude]
A  E  D
....I cherish you?

[Verse 2]
A                             bm 
Summer was wondrous feeling assured and safe
 D 
Soaked in daylight and love
We were thinking straight
   A                            Bm 
Photographs show us as we were then, babe
            D 
Look at us now, tearing this down like we want it this way
[Refrain]
D                         Bm 
My childhood room is in boxes
                     F#m 
Packed up half of my life
                     E    
Everything I have to offer is in your hands, still I
D                   Bm 
Feel I may not be enough
                             F#m
You think I don’t fit quite right
                             E
But the way your body holds mine makes me think otherwise

[Chorus]
A                        Bm                            D 
..I’m playing all of my cards, sweetheart, but I’m no match for your demons
I know that I won’t beat them
A                        Bm                  D 
Questions I should never ask are all that I seem to ponder lately
As times ahead look hazy
F#m                 E
..What do I have to do
                   D                            E
Just to make you believe so you can cherish me like
I cherish you?

[Bridge]
A                  Bm 
What do I have to do
                   D 
Just to make you believe so you can cherish me like
I cherish you?
Bm                C#m
What do I need to say
                        D                     E
To bring you back to recenter and see me the way
I want you to?

[Chorus]
A                        Bm                            D 
..I’m playing all of my cards, sweetheart, but I’m no match for your demons
I know that I won’t beat them
A                        Bm                  D 
Questions I should never ask are all that I seem to ponder lat?ly
As times ahead look hazy
F#m                 E
..What do I have to do
                   D                            E
Just to mak? you believe so you can cherish me like
I cherish you?

A Bm  D

A B  D 
(I cherish you)

It’d be so brave of me to walk away
