Writer In The Dark Chords by Lorde

[Verse 1]
D
  Break the news, you're walking out
C
  To be a good man for someone else
D                             C   Cmaj7
  Sorry I was never good like you

D
  Stood on my chest and kept me down
     C
Hated hearing my name on the lips of a crowd
D                               C
  Did my best to exist just for you


[Pre-Chorus 1]
                D                              C 
Bet you rue the day you kissed a writer in the dark
                D                              C
Bet you rue the day you kissed a writer in the dark
                D                                 C
Now she's gonna play and sing and lock you in her heart
                D                C             G
Bet you rue the day you kissed a writer in the dark


[Chorus 1]
G                              Am               Em
  I am my mother's child, I'll love you 'til my breathing stops
     Am                Em               D   
I'll love you 'til you call the cops on me
G                             Am            Em
  But in our darkest hours, I stumbled on a secret power
     Am            Em              D
I'll find a way to be without you, babe


[Verse 2]
D
  I still feel you, now and then
C
  Slow like pseudo-ephedrine
D                                    C        Cmaj7
  When you see me, will you say I've changed?

D
  I ride the subway, read the signs
  C
I let the seasons change my mind
  G                                       D
I love it here since I've stopped needing you


[Pre-Chorus 2]
                D                              C 
Bet you rue the day you kissed a writer in the dark
                D                              C
Bet you rue the day you kissed a writer in the dark
                D                                 C
Now she's gonna play and sing and lock you in her heart
                D                C             G
Bet you rue the day you kissed a writer in the dark


[Chorus 2]
G                              Am               Em
  I am my mother's child, I'll love you 'til my breathing stops
     Am                Em               D   
I'll love you 'til you call the cops on me
G                             Am            Em
  But in our darkest hours, I stumbled on a secret power
     Am            Em              D
I'll find a way to be without you, babe


[Chorus 3]
G                              Am               Em
  I am my mother's child, I'll love you 'til my breathing stops
     Am                Em               D   
I'll love you 'til you call the cops on me
G                             Am            Em
  But in our darkest hours, I stumbled on a secret power
     Am            Em              D
I'll find a way to be without you, babe


[Outro]
G  Am  Em  Am  Em  D
G  Am  Em  Am  Em  D
