Note: occasionally on the Cadd9 chords an extra note is added to make it go from x32030
x32031 and then back again. also during the "and special occasions..." part of the verse
is a discordant chord shift but just alter the Dsus2 chord briefly from x00230 to x00330 
then back again.

that you've lost, that you've lost, do you know what you've lost?

C
but i'm on to you, i'm on to you

G
so take whatever you'd like
Bb
i'll strike like the States on fire

About the artist behind Truce:

The Dresden Dolls[1] are an American musical duo from Boston, Massachusetts. Formed in 2001, the group consists of Amanda Palmer (vocals, piano, harmonica, ukelele) and Brian Viglione (drums, percussion, guitar, vocals). The two describe their style as "Brechtian punk cabaret", a phrase invented by Palmer because she was "terrified" that the press would invent a name that "would involve the word gothic."[2] The Dresden Dolls are part of an underground dark cabaret movement that started gaining momentum in the early 1990s.
