Broken Mess

Capo on 1st fret
	  		


VERSE 
           C             Dm  
He can't sleep, he can't eat 

            Am  
He keeps thinking about her 

C                  G             F  
Behind the locked door of her bedroom 

          Am                    C 
As she knowingly tortures the shell 

         G              F 
That is left of her bridegroom 

verse 2  

And what did he do to deserve 
This whore of a wife who parades 
Her disgrace to his face now 
When he loved her and gave up his life 
In more ways than she knows how 

Chorus 
G                          C                 Am  
And all I can say is that love is a terrible art 

                 Dm                             G 
It's a hook in the heart that can drag you on broken glass 

             C                          Am  
And as you protest the shards in your flesh 

                         Dm                         G          Am  
The hook tears out your chest until you're just a broken mess 

VERSE 

Where is God in this rot? 
Depraved she commits the most heinous 
Of sins and breaks her vows 
But he loves her despite all the crimes 
She devises in his house 

verse 2  

Where is God? I've been taught 
That He's close to the broken 
It's true I have spoken with Him some 
When I look in my brother's eyes 
I can see where his love comes from 

Chorus 

And all he can say is that love is a terrible art 
It's a hook in the heart that can drag you on broken glass 
And as you protest the shards in your flesh 
The hook tears out your chest until you're just a broken mess 

BRIDGE  
F                 G 
But he has mercy on her lover 

     C  
And does not bleed him dry 

    Dm             Am                   G 
A credit to his self-control if it were me 


That monster would probably die 

Chorus 

Love is a beautiful thing 
She can make your heart sing 
When you're walking on broken glass 

OUTRO 

C 
She will open your eyes 

Am 
Make your heart feel alive 

Dm 
Point you toward the sunrise 

G 
Help you leave all this broken mess behind 

F    G                Em  
Love is a beautiful thing 

F                    C             G 
Will you leave your broken mess behind? 

     F   G               Em  
Oh, love is a beautiful thing 

F                     C           G 
Will you leave your broken mess behind? 

     F   G     Em  
Oh, love, oh, love 

F                     C           G 
Will you leave your broken mess behind? 

     F    G    Em  
Oh, love, oh, love 

F                     C            G 
Will you leave your broken mess behind?
