TITLE: One More Minute
Lyrics and Chords

Well, I heard that you're leavin'
Gonna leave me far behind
'Cause you found a brand new lover
You decided that I'm not your kind

/ G - C - / / E - Am - / D7 - GF EmDm /

So I pulled your name out of my Rolodex
And I tore all your pictures in two
And I burned down the malt shop where we used to go
Just because it reminds me of you

/ C G C - / F - C - / E - Am - / D7 - Dm G /

  That's right, you ain't gonna see me cryin'
  I'm glad that you found somebody new
  'Cause I'd rather spend eternity eating shards of broken glass
  Than spend one more minute with you

  / F G C - / / F G Am F / C G C - /

I guess I might seem kinda bitter
You got me feelin' down in the dumps
'Cause I'm stranded all alone in the Gas Station of Love
And I have to use the self-service pumps

/ G - C - / / E - Am - / D7 - Dm G /

  Oh, so honey, let me help you with that suitcase
  You ain't gonna break my heart in two
  'Cause I'd rather get a hundred thousand paper cuts on my face
  Than spend one more minute with you

I'd rather rip out my intestines with a fork
Than watch you going out with other men
I'd rather slam my fingers in a door
Again and again and again and again and again
Oh, can't you see what I'm tryin' to say, darlin'

/ Am - Em - / Dm G C - / Am - E Am / D - G - /

  I'd rather have my blood sucked out by leeches
  Shove an ice pick under a toenail or two
  I'd rather clean all the bathrooms in Grand Central Station with my tongue
  Than spend one more minute with you

  Yes, I'd rather jump naked on a huge pile of thumbtacks
  Or stick my nostrils together with Krazy Glue
  I'd rather dive into a swimming pool filled with double-edged razor blades
  Than spend one more minute with you

  ... / C G Am - /

I'd rather rip my heart right out of my rib cage with my bare hands
And then throw it on the floor and stomp on it 'til I die
Than spend one more minute with you

/ F - G - / Am - Fm - / C G C - /
