    Intro: / Am - - - / G - - - / C - - - / F - - - /

     

    Am                    G                             C    F

        I thought that I've been hurt before

               Am                G                        C    F

    But no one's ever left me quite this sore

    Am                          G                      C       F

         Your words cut deeper than a knife

                    Am                  G                        F

    Now I need someone to breathe me back to life

     

    Pre-Chorus:

    F                                    G          

        Got a feeling that I'm going under

    Am (2)                              

         But I know that I'll make it out alive

    F                          G

        If I quit calling you my lover

    Am         G

    Move on

     

    Chorus:

                             Am                              G

    You watch me bleed until I can't breathe

                        C                              F

    I'm shaking, falling onto my knees

                        Am                     G

    And now that I'm without your kisses

    F                      C

    I'll be needing stitches

           Am                 G                     

    I'm tripping over myself,

                      C                                  F      

    I'm aching begging you to come help

                        Am                     G

    And now that I'm without your kisses

    F                      C

    I'll be needing stitches

     

     

    Am                   G                         C    F

        Just like a moth drawn to a flame

                 Am                    G                         C    F

    Oh, you lured me in, I couldn't sense the pain

    Am                  G                            C   F

        Your bitter heart cold to the touch

                             Am                 G

    Now I'm gonna reap what I sow

                              C                 F

    I'm left seeing red on my own

     

    Pre-Chorus

     

    Chorus

     

    Am                                      G           

    Needle and the thread, gotta get you out of my head

    C                                           F                

    Needle and the thread, gonna wind up dead

     

     

    x3

    Am                                      G           

    Needle and the thread, gotta get you out of my head

     C                           N.C.

    get you out of my head

     

    Chorus

     

    A Capella:

    (And now that)

    I'm without your kisses

    I'll be needing stitches

    (And now that)

    I'm without your kisses

    I'll be needing stitches

     

    End
