Avenged Sevenfold

Intro : Dm, Fm 2x

Dm                               C#5
Before the story begins, is it such a sin,
Fm                 G#m
For me to take what’s mine, until the end of time?
Dm                       C#5
We were more than friends, before the story ends,
Fm                G#m
And I will take what’s mine, create what
God would never design

Dm              A
Our love had been so strong for far too long,
I was weak with fear that
Dm [followed by A small breakdown of G#5, G5, F5]
Something would go wrong,
Dm           A
Before the possibilities came true,
G#m        Dm [followed by A small breakdown of G#5,
I took all possibility from you

Dm     F           Fm      G#m
Almost laughed myself to tears,
Dm      F         Fm       Dm
Conjuring her deepest fears

Dm                C#5           (F5 slide to G#5   3x)
Must have stabbed her fifty fucking times,

I can’t believe it,
Dm            C#5            (F5 slide to G#5   3x)
Ripped her heart out right before her eyes,
(guitar silent for eat it eat it eat it)
Eyes over easy, eat it, eat it, eat it

She was never this good in bed
Even when she was sleepin’

Now she’s just so perfect I’ve
Never been quite so fucking deep in
(here the strings of the orchestra do a walk down of sorts –
I simplified it for cuz it’s really hard to sing
to if you play the real riff)

One Bar of Dm, Bb before singing continues

Dm            Bb
It goes on, and on, and on,
Dm               Bb
I can keep you lookin’ young and preserved forever,
Dm                   Bb
With a fountain to spray on your youth whenever

(the string walk down section which
I simplified is now over)

Gm                  C
‘Cause I really always knew that my little crime
F                       Dm
Would be cold that’s why I got a heater for your thighs
Bb       C               F
And I know, I know it’s not your time
But bye, bye
Bb                    C
And a word to the wise when the fire dies
A                          Dm, C, Bb
You think it’s over but it’s just begun
But baby don’t cry

Bb            C
You had my heart, at least for the most part
F        C            Dm             C    Bb
‘Cause everybody’s gotta die sometime, we fell apart
Let’s make a new start
F        C       Dm                  C      Bb
‘Cause everybody’s gotta die sometime yea-yeah
But baby don’t cry-ay-ay-ay-ay

(Repeat all relevant parts until the end
of the second chorus)


Dm, A, Fm, Fm 2x
NOW BE CAREFUL HERE – sometimes the chord
changes on the male voice, and sometimes on
female voice – pay close attention

Dm     Bb      Gm         F
I will suffer for so long

(What will you do, not long enough)
To make it up to you
(I pray to God that you do)
I’ll do whatever you want me to do
A                      Dm
(Well then I’ll grant you one chance)
Bb   Gm
And if it’s not enough
(If it’s not enough, If it’s not enough)
If it’s not enough

(Not enough)
Try again

(Try again)
And again

(And again)
Over and over again

We’re coming back, coming back

We’ll live forever, live forever
Let’s have wedding, have a wedding
Let’s start the killing, start the killing
Dm, Fm 2x  and then A
And afterward (during the oooooohh-ing):

D5, C#5, Bb5, A5, E5 2x
