[Verse 1]
    A       E          A              E          D   
A beating heart gets thrown out of a car in the dark
   A                           E                        D   
I find it and I check it for scars and make sure it's clean
           A      E
Then I go back inside
                A              E           D
'Cause there's nothing for us here in the night
     A                        E           D   
Just a helicopter buzzing nearby, ruining my sleep

[Pre-Chorus]
    E             F#m                              D 
And I can feel a strong vibration when I look at you, you
     E     F#m                                    D      E
Everybody knows my failures, well I know theirs too, too..
[Chorus]
                 A
Is this what it takes
         E                       D  
What it takes to be impossibly great?
                              E        F#m        E   
'Cause if it is then I think maybe the less, the less
     D   
The less I knew the better
   E            A            E                             D
Please just be kind when I drag myself out on through the line
                                E         F#m        E    
'Cause in the end I think that maybe the less, the less
     D                 
The less I knew the better

[Verse 2]
             A        E
Yeah, that heart and me
    A              E          D 
At first we get on so splendidly
        A                                E
And we called you but you never seemed free
                   D
So we just drove around for a while
             A                   E
But then the...poetry of silence..
                            A              E   
It has this way of catching...me and that heart
       D                        A                       E                           D
And it...rises to tell us that all of this is grief and...everything we love is a shame

[Pre-Chorus]
     E           F#m                               D      
So I open up my window and I throw that heart through, through
         E     F#m                                   D       E 
Now everybody knows my failures, well I know theirs too, too..

[Chorus]
                    A
So is this what it takes
         E                       D
What it takes to be supposedly great?
                              E         F#m       E
'Cause if it is then I think maybe the less, the less
     D
The less I knew the better
   E            A           E                         D
Please just be kind when I drag myself out onto the night
                                E        F#m        E
'Cause in the end I think that maybe the less, the less
      D   
The less I knew the better
    
The less I knew the better
