[Verse 1]
A
 I blew things out of proportion, now you're blue
D
 Put you in jail for something you didn‘t do
A
 I pinned your hands behind your back, oh
D
 Thought I had reason to attack, but no

[Pre-Chorus]
A
Fighting with a true love is boxing with no gloves
D
Chemistry 'til it blows up, 'til there’s no us
E                            D
Why'd I have to break what I love so much?
     E                 D             PAUSE
It's on your face, and I'm to blame, I need to say
[Chorus] A E Bm Hey, it's all me, in my head D A I'm the one who burned us down E Bm But it's not what I meant D Sorry that I hurt you A E I don't wanna do, I don’t wanna do this to you (Ooh) Bm D I don’t wanna lose, I don't wanna lose this with you (Ooh) A E Bm I need to say, hey, it’s all me, just don't go D PAUSE Meet me in the afterglow
[Verse 2] A It's so excruciating to see you low D Just wanna lift you up and not let you go A This ultraviolet morning light below D Tells me this love is worth the fight, oh [Pre-Chorus] A I lived like an island, punished you in silence D Went off like sirens, just crying E D Why'd I have to break what I love so much? E D It’s on your face, don't walk away, I need to say
[Chorus] A E Bm Hey, it's all me, in my head D A I'm the one who burned us down E Bm But it's not what I meant D Sorry that I hurt you A E I don't wanna do, I don’t wanna do this to you (Ooh) Bm D I don’t wanna lose, I don't wanna lose this with you (Ooh) A E Bm I need to say, hey, it’s all me, just don't go D Meet me in the afterglow [Bridge] A Tell me that you're still mine E Tell me that we'll be just fine Bm Even when I lose my mind, I need to say A Tell me that it's not my fault E Tell me that I'm all you want Bm Even when I break your heart, I need to say [Chorus] A E Bm Hey, it's all me, in my head D A I'm the one who burned us down E Bm But it's not what I meant D Sorry that I hurt you A E I don't wanna do, I don’t wanna do this to you (Ooh) Bm D I don’t wanna lose, I don't wanna lose this with you (Ooh) A E Bm I need to say, hey, it’s all me, just don't go D Meet me in the afterglow [Outro] A - E - Bm - D x2
