Arpeggio#1
Someone said the bad ones always win 
So why am I standing here alone 
To bathe with my radio plugged in, 
Singing one of your favorite songs? 
Arpeggio#2
And all the words 
Are holding my body beneath the surface. 
You row back to shore 
And the sight of you waving drives me insane.

Em          C
 Shoot this hourglass, 
   G            D
I can't stand another second 
Em            C              G
Watching you sneak out of my life 
    D
And leave forever. 

Em

Em                C              G
 Someone said the bad ones always win 
           G/F#                 Em
So why is everybody throwing stones? 
                    C             G
I'll sleep with my radio plugged in 
              G/F#                 A7
But you ruined all of my favorite songs 
    A7 A7/Bm C
And all the world 
   G                G/F#
Is crashing upon my squeaking shoulders. 
    A7   A7 A7/Bm C 
You row back to shore 
    G
And leave me anchored, 
D
Dead and broken.

 Shoot this hourglass, 
I can't stand another second 
Watching you sneak out of my life 
And leave forever.
Em          C
Godspeed to all my letters, 
  G              D
I hope you could read 'em all 
    Em       C          D
And don't reply, I'm too scared 
              C
Of you saying "no".

                 G
 And all of these poems 
      D
Might reveal I'm in love. 
C              G
  Honestly I'm shocked 
   D
You're still gone.

 Shoot this hourglass, 
I can't stand another second 
Watching you sneak out of my life 
And leave forever.
Godspeed to all my letters, 
I hope you could read 'em all 
And don't reply, I'm too scared 
Of you saying "no".
