Verse 1:
Fm(PM)     Eb
  Farewell heartless world,
Fm                Eb
  I'll send you a postcard burnt,
     C#                     G#                          Eb--Cm
  In flames You've tried so hard to extinguish with the fear of failing,
Fm                     Eb
  I'll write down everything I have learned,
Fm                      Eb
  And edit it down to a single word,
C#---G#
  Lo---ve
      Cm
  For you I'm waiting, anticipating


Chorus:
Fm                          G#
Sparks will fly beneath the luna alight,
           C#
Lazarus at Frankenstein's, babe I'll be a, 
G#(break)        Cm--Eb
  Flatliner for a... Heartkiller
  Fm                      G#
A little we die above the lesser light,
            C#
For you I'm open wide, babe I'll be a,
G#(break)      C#--Eb
  Flatliner for a... Heartkiller

(Play main riff chords once with solo)
Heartkiller


Verse 2:
Fm         Eb
  Top hats off to the return,
Fm               Eb
  Of the beat to lick a wound to,
C#           G#                     Eb--Cm
  Cursed for some and blessed for a few,
Fm                   Eb
  It doesn't have to make any sense at all,
Fm                      Eb
  Come hither and we'll fall,
C#---G#      C#---G#
  In lo---ve, for lo---ve
      Cm
  I'm crawling out of patience baby


(Repeat chorus)

Paint all your sorrows for me to sing
