Verse one.

  C

I clung to your world.

       D

To the beginning and the end.

     Bflat.

But for all I cried out to you.

  Bflat.            C

Did you ever really see me?

  Bflat.    (Slide )    C

Was I talking to myself?

But

Chorus one.

C.      D

All the little things,

      Bflat.      C

Went right to my soul.

    C.          D

Where I keep you safe.

    Bflat.      C

So you can not hurt me.

       C.       D

But for all the ********,

      Bflat.     C

It was all just the same.

     Bflat.    C

We’re we both to blame.

C (slow strum.)

For all the little things. (Rest)

Verse two.

C

So you held onto me,

        D

While I slipped through your fingers.

    Bflat

I’d already given up,

     C

The hope you’d ever hear me.

          D.            C

When the love was one sided,

       D.       C

Your attention divided.

     Bflat.                    C

You broke my heart. (can’t you see?)

And

Chorus two.

C.      D

All the little things,

      Bflat.        C

Went straight to my head.

           C.        D

Where they build their homes,

    Bflat.            C    

So you can always hurt me.

        C.     D

But for all the self hate,

      Bflat.           C

That shall not speak its name.

         Bflat.   C

Were we both to blame.

C (slow strum)

For all the little things. (Rest)

Bridge

All the times I lied,

All those tears I cried.

The times I tore myself apart inside.

Did you ever once see?

That I’d already died, again and again and again and again and again! (Sustain)

Last vers.

C

All the times you broke my heart. 

     D

And I learned not to feel.

  Bflat.       C

Not to see you for real.

    C.

For all the times I fell apart,

     D

Where was I to start?

      Bflat.           C

With all the pieces of my heart!

Last chorus.

C.      D

All the little things. (Every little thing!)

      Bflat.       C

They get under my skin.

       C.       D

Where I keep my pain.

Bflat.             C

Locked away from your eyes.

        C.     D

But for all that you knew,

         Bflat.          C

I was just hiding from the rain.

   Bflat.    C

How could I sustain? (Sustain…)

Repeat first chorus…

Outro (loop chorus chords)

Oh honey. We’re both to blame(sustain)
