The song is 4/4 so meaning each chord receives 4 count. Watch out for that E7 chord in the last chorus.

Also you can end the song with the C or Am chord after the last post chorus part if you don’t want to play the outro/instrumental part.

In the outro/instrumental part; you can change the E7 to G#diminished (xx6707 / 4×0434) to make the chord sound much darker.

[Verse 1]
F                              C  
You say things you don’t mean too damn convincingly
Am                          G
You take it back and then expect that it won’t stick to me
F                     C
Was just an argument, no ounce of truth in it
Am                           G
I wanna believe you but you came off so articulate

[Pre-Chorus]
F               C              Am
I’ve tried walking away in my head
        G                           F                  C
For a moment it’s peaceful then it scares me to death.......
      G
So I guess

[Chorus]
          F                   C
Sometimes tension brings us closer
             Am                              G
Is it wrong, I just wanna hold you when it’s over?
       F                 C
I get cold but you get colder
             Am                               G
Is it wrong, I just wanna hold you when it’s over?
       F                              C
You’re not the things you say, you’re not the things you do
               G                              Am
These are the lies I tell myself to stay with you
                F      F            G
Like sometimes tension, brings us closer
                                      F      Em     
I just wanna hold you when it’s over..............
          Am                               G
You know, I just wanna hold you when it’s over

[Verse 2]
Am                 
 You say love’s push and pull
F
 Well, you’re both the push and the pull
C                                  G/B
 And I’m hangin’ on for dear life ’cause I’m scared to let you go
Am                          F
 The good that’s left in us, it still feels good enough
C                         G/B
 Set us on fire and I’ll find a way to hold us up

[Pre-Chorus]
F             C                 Am
 I’ve tried walking away in my head
       G                            F                  C
For a moment it’s peaceful then it scares me to death.......
      G
So I guess
