lyrics

FOR THE RECORD

verse: G6 G x3 Em Em/F# G
chorus: Em C G x2
outro: Em C G D

for the record this is gonna hurt
i shed a tear for you at work
surrounded by people i didn't wanna tell
oh i hid it well.
i wanna risk it but i don't wanna fail
launch the boat with the broken sail
watch it sink beneath the

[chorus]
waves...anyways, what is beneath?
it'll stay the same just out of reach.

come clean with the wisdom of a year
you'll find love but you won't find it here
just a heart that'll never be enough
shy as you are you do not know your worth
your tears are the salt on the face of the earth
& i'm the only thing you should

[ch]
change...it's a shame
to look into these blue eyes.

[outro]
for the record you're the last word x2
this old memory you inside me

[verse]
this is gonna hurt
this is gonna hurt (end on [C])
