The parts that are only chords (mainly the verses) can be played differently as well.
I put the other way you could play it at the end!
Intro:

My, my, my, my
My, my, my, my
My, my, my, my
My, my, my, my


Intro/Chorus:

My, my, my, my
My, my, my, my
My, my, my, my
My, my, my, my


Saying goodbye is death by a thousand cuts
Flashbacks waking me up
I get drunk, but it's not enough
’Cause the morning comes and you're not my baby

I look through the windows of this love
Even though we boarded them up
Chandelier's still flickering here
’Cause I can't pretend it's okay when it's not

It's death by a thousand cuts


I dress to kill my time, I take the long way home
I ask the traffic lights if it'll be alright
They say, "I don't know"

And what once was ours is no one's now
I see you everywhere, the only thing we share
Is this small town

You said it was a great love, one for the ages
But if the story’s over, why am I still writing pages?

’Cause saying goodbye is death by a thousand cuts

I get drunk, but it's not enough
’Cause the morning comes and you're not my baby

It's death by a thousand cuts


My heart, my hips, my body, my love
Tryna find a part of me that you didn't touch
Gave up on me like I was a bad drug
Now I'm searching for signs in a haunted club

Our songs, our films, united we stand
Our country, guess it was a lawless land
Quiet my fears with the touch of your hand
Paper cut stings from our paper-thin plans

My time, my wine, my spirit, my trust
Tryna find a part of me you didn't take up
Gave you so much, but it wasn't enough
But I'll be alright, it's just a thousand cuts

'Cause I can't pretend it's okay when it's not

No, it's not
It's death by a thousand cuts (You didn't touch)


Tryna find a part of me that you didn't touch
My body, my love, my trust (It's death by a thousand cuts)
But it wasn't enough, it wasn't enough, no, no
