Verse 1:

        (Main Progression)

On a Monday, I am waiting

Tuesday, I am fading

             Gsus2(2)                      Asus2(2)

And by Wednesday, I can't sleep

                 (Main Progression)

Then the phone rings, I hear you

And the darkness, is a clear view 

                 Gsus2(2)              Asus2(2)

Cuz you've come to, rescue me

 

Pre-Chorus 1:

Bm(2)                         G(2)

Fall, with you I fall so fast

Bm(2)                                                     

I can hardly catch my breath,

I hope it lasts

Ohh, it seems like I can finally rest my

D                             G       Em7                  Asus4

head on something real--I like the way that feels

D   G            Em7               Asus4

Ohh, it's as if you know me better than I

D                    G       Em7                  Asus4

ever knew myself--I love how you can tell

 

           Dsus2(8)

Oh the pieces, the pieces, pieces of me (x2)

 

 

 

Verse 2:

          (Main Progression)

I am moody, messy

I get restless, and it's senseless

              Gsus2(2)                Asus2(2)

How you never seem to care

               (Main Progression)

When I'm angry, you listen

When your happy, it's a mission

              Gsus2(2)                Asus2(2)

And you won't stop, til I'm there

 

Pre-Chorus 2:

Bm(2)                         G(2)

Fall, with you I fall so fast

           Bm(2)                                                     

When I hit that bottom crash,

                C       G

You're all I have

 

Chorus

Oh the pieces, the pieces, pieces of me

How do you know everything I'm

D/F#                            G

about to say?  Am I that obvious?

And if it's written on my face

I hope it never goes away
