The Craving Chords

(Version #1)
Twenty One Pilots
[Intro]
C G B7 Em
C G Bm
 
 
[Verse 1]
C              G
Seems I get in my own way
    B7                Em
The more I think, the less I say
C           G            Bm
I hope I communicate the craving
Am                              C
Now I see intentions don't mean much
 
 
[Chorus]
Em               C
Say enough, say enough
      G
Did I let her know, let her know
Bm   Em       C       G
If I found my body in chains
    B7           Em
I'd lay down and wait
    C                  G  B7 Em
And hope she looks for me
    C                  D
And hope she looks for me
 
 
[Verse 2]
C                 G
She just wants to catch a wave
B7                 Em
Ride it off to the end of the days
  C               G           Bm
I hope that I can satiate the craving
Am                               C
Now I see the gesture don't mean much
 
 
 
[Chorus]
Em               C
Say enough, say enough
      G
Did I let her know, let her know
Bm   Em       C       G
If I found my body in chains
    B7           Em
I'd lay down and wait
    C                  G  B7 Em
And hope she looks for me
    C                  D
And hope she looks for me
 
Ooh
 
 
[Instrumental]
C G B7 Em
C G Bm
Am C
 
 
[Chorus]
Em               C
Say enough, say enough
      G
Did I let her know, let her know
Bm   Em       C       G
If I found my body in chains
    B7           Em
I'd lay down and wait
                C             G
'Cause it's the fеar of the unknown
              B7            Em
That cripples evеry step we take
           C                G
And I just hate to put this on her
      B7                Em             D       C   G B7 Em  C G
But I swear that I will give more than I take away
        Bm
Mm, the craving
Am                              C
Now I see intentions don't mean much
