Sam Smith - Burning Chords

[Intro]
N.C.
I've been burning, yes, I've been burning
N.C.
Such a burden, this flame on my chest
N.C.
No insurance to pay for the damage
N.C.
Yeah, I've been burning up since you left

[Verse 1]
          F#m
I've been smoking, oh
          Em
More than twenty a day
              F#m
Blame it on rebellion
      Em
Don't blame it on me
           F#m
Wish I was younger
            Em
Back to the nineteenth of May
              F#m
I had an open mind
               Em
Swore to never change

[Pre-Chorus]
          Bm
Funny how time goes by
       Em
Had respect for myself
               Bm
That river ran dry
                Em
You reached the limit
  Bm
I wasn't enough
              Em
It's like the fire replaced all the love

[Chorus]
          A
I've been burning
               E
Yes, I've been burning
       G
Such a burden
     Em          G
This flame on my chest
   A                        E
No insurance to pay for the damage
                G                    Em
Yeah, I've been burning up since you left

[Verse 2]
    F#m
Oh, have you ever called
       Em
I will burst straight back
F#m
Give you my forgiveness
        Em
And the shirt off my back
   F#m
No friends to turn to
        Em
Yeah, I messed up that
              F#m
Wish we could smoke again
           Em
Just for a day, oh

[Pre-Chorus]
          Bm
Funny how time goes by
       Em
Had respect for myself
               Bm
That river ran dry
                Em
You reached the limit
  Bm
I wasn't enough
              Em
It's like the fire replaced all the love

[Chorus]
          A
I've been burning
               E
Yes, I've been burning
       G
Such a burden
     Em          G
This flame on my chest
   A                        E
No insurance to pay for the damage
                G                    Em
Yeah, I've been burning up since you left

[Outro]
G                                    Em
Yeah, I've been burning up since you left
G                                  Em
Oh, I've been burning up since you left
