[Verse]
Em
Remember your last birthday?
                  
Three months before June
Bm
I bought two cards 'cause I

Just couldn't choose
Em
I wrote, "Love you, forever"

Like I always do
Bm
But now I'm in the kitchen

They're all that's left of you
[Pre-Chorus]
      Em                                   
And I had to burn my house down just to forget the way
    Bm                                 
We used to lie, drunk on the floor, just drinking all day
   Em                 
Now I can't bear the burden of what I'm still to find
      Bm         
This place ain't big enough for me and what's left behind

[Chorus]
     Em                                        Bm
So I try, I try to cast you straight into the fire
                                     Em
Breathe the smoke of what is left behind
                                     Bm
I try to cast you straight into the fire

[Verse]
Em
Caught in an endless Sunday

My pride's split in two
Bm
Paint over words you wrote me

With wet baby blue
Em
But I can still feel the tether
Pulling me to you
Bm
Wherever I go, you're never

Too far from my view

[Pre-Chorus]
             Em
That's why I had to burn my house down just to forget the way
       Bm
You'd stare at me and say that you could watch me all day
    Em  
Now I can't bear the burden of what I'm still to find
      Bm  
This place ain't big enough for me and what's left behind

[Chorus]
     Em                                        Bm
So I try, I try to cast you straight into the fire
                                     Em
Breathe the smoke of what is left behind
                                     Bm
I try to cast you straight into the fire

[Bridge]
    Em
But ever since I moved house

I dream every night
Bm  
They're vivid and full of color

They always burn bright
Em
The images never leave me

And put up a fight
  Bm
'Cause there wasn't a fire hot enough

To burn you out of my mind

[Chorus]
     Em                                        Bm
So I try, I try to cast you straight into the fire
                                     Em
Breathe the smoke of what is left behind
                                     Bm
I try to cast you straight into the fire
The fire, the fire, the fire

[Outro]
     Em                                        Bm
So I try, I try to cast you straight into the fire
                                     Em
Breathe the smoke of what is left behind
                                     Bm
I try to cast you straight into the fire

The fire, the fire, the fire
Em   Bm
