[Verse I]
Em                      D               G   Am7 
I'm still alive but I'm barely breathing
     Em              D                       G   Am7
Just prayed to a god that I don't believe in 
    Em               D           G  Am7
Cos I got time while she got freedom
    Em                        D                  G   Am7
Cos when a heart breaks no it don't break even

    Em                D          G       Am7
Her best days will be some of my worst 
    Em                       D     G       Am7
She finally met a man that's gonna put her 1st
      Em                   D            G    Am7
While I'm wide awake she's no trouble sleeping
    Em                        D             G         Am7
Cos when a heart breaks no it don't break even, even, no

[Chorus]
C         G                       D                   Em
What am I supposed to do when the best part of me was always you
C         G                        D                  Em   
What am I supposed to say when I'm all choked up that you're OK
C   G          D  Em  
I'm falling to pieces, yeah 
C   G          D  Em  
I'm falling to pieces 

Em - D - G - Am7

[Verse II]
     Em                    D              G   Am7    
They say bad things happen for a reason 
    Em                  D                   G    Am7 
But no wise words gonna stop the bleeding
    Em                   D             G      Am7 
Cos she's moved on while I'm still grieving 
    Em                        D                  G   Am7  
And when a heart breaks no it don't break even (even, no)

[Chorus]
C         G                       D                   Em
What am I supposed to do when the best part of me was always you
C         G                        D                  Em   
What am I supposed to say when I'm all choked up that you're OK
C   G          D  Em  C  
I'm falling to pieces yeah
G              D  Em  
I'm falling to pieces yeah
C   G          D  Em  
I'm falling to pieces 
(One still in love while the other one's leaving)
C   G          D  Em  
I'm falling to pieces 
(Cos when a heart breaks no it don't breakeven)

Em - D - G - Am7
Em - D - G - Am7

[Bridge]
            Em                     D
You got his heart and my heart and none of the pain
G                       Am7
You took your suitcase, I took the blame. 
        Em                       D          G      Am7
Now I'm tryna make sense of what little remains, oh
        Am7 (gradual softer strum)
Cos you left me with no love, no love to my name

Em                      D                 G   Am7 
I'm still alive but I'm barely breathing
     Em              D                         G   Am7
Just prayed to a god that I don't believe in 
    Em               D             G   Am7
Cos I got time while she got freedom
    Em                        D                  
Cos when a heart breaks no it don't...
G
No, it don't break
       Am7           C
No, it don't break even, no! 

[Chorus]
C         G                       D                   Em
What am I supposed to do when the best part of me was always you
C         G                        D                  Em   
What am I supposed to say when I'm all choked up that you're OK
C   G          D  Em  C  
I'm falling to pieces yeah

(Oh, I'm falling, I'm falling... yeah)
G              D  Em  
I'm falling to pieces yeah
C   G          D  Em  
I'm falling to pieces 
(One still in love while the other one's leaving)
C   G          D  Em  
I'm falling to pieces 

(Cos when a heart breaks no it don't breakeven)
