Verse:
They would yell, they would scream, they were fighting it out
She would hope, she would pray, she was waiting it out
Holding on to a dream, watch you watch as its walls fall down


Bbm                                                 
Sharp words like knives, they were cutting her down
Gb
Shattered glass like the past it’s a memory now
Ab                                             Gb
Holding on to a dream, watch you watch as its walls fall down

Chorus:
Db                                    Ab
Hey mum, hey dad, when did this end?
                                   Bbm
When did you lose your happiness?
                              Gb
I’m here alone inside of this broken home
Db                                          Ab
Who’s right, who’s wrong, who really cares?
                                            Bbm
The fault, the blame, the pain’s still there
                              Gb
I’m here alone inside of this broken home
                Bbm
This broken home

Verse:
Bbm                                                  Gb
Wrote it down on the walls, she was screaming it out
                                                      Ab
Made it clear, she’s still here, are you listening out
                                                  Gb
Just a ghost in the halls feeling empty, they’re vacant now


Bbm                                                         Gb
All the battles, all the wars, all the time that you fought
                                                                 Ab
She’s the scar, she’s the bruises she’s the pain that you brought
                                                     Gb
There was life, there was love like a light and it’s fading out

Chorus:
Db                                    Ab
Hey mum, hey dad, when did this end?
                                   Bbm
When did you lose your happiness?
                              Gb
I’m here alone inside of this broken home
Db                                          Ab
Who’s right, who’s wrong, who really cares?
                                            Bbm
The fault, the blame, the pain’s still there
                              Gb
I’m here alone inside of this broken home
                Bbm
This broken home

Bridge:
Bbm
You’ve gotta let it go
Gb
You’re losing all your hope
Db
Nothing left to hold
Ab
Locked out in the cold
Bbm
You’re painting memories
Gb
Then wash out all the scenes
Db
I’m stuck in between
Ab
a nightmare and lost dreams


Db                                    Ab
Hey mum, hey dad, when did this end?
                                   Bbm
When did you lose your happiness?
                              Gb
I’m here alone inside of this broken home

Chorus:
Db                                    Ab
Hey mum, hey dad, when did this end?
                                   Bbm
When did you lose your happiness?
                              Gb
I’m here alone inside of this broken home
Db                                          Ab
Who’s right, who’s wrong, who really cares?
                                            Bbm
The fault, the blame, the pain’s still there
                              Gb
I’m here alone inside of this broken home
                Bbm
This broken home

  1. I find that if you’re playing one down for each note, after every f there should be a c

  2. PierceTheAmrii

    what’s the strumming pattern?

  3. Strum pattern?

  4. Finish the first part of -1, otherwise -1 is easier

  5. 5secondsofukuleles

    go to -1 for easier chords :)
