Intro - x2 -: E Dbm A B

E               Dbm
I open my lungs dear, 
A                 B           E  Dbm      
I sing this song at funerals, no rush.
A                       B               E Dbm
These lyrics heard a thousand times, just plush.
A                  B                 E                   Dbm
A baby boy you've held so tightly, this pain it visits almost nightly.
A         B                      E
Missing hotel beds I feel your touch.


E          Dbm
I will await dear, 
A               B      E     Dbm
A patient of eternity, my crush.
A            B      E   Dbm
A universal still, No rust.
A               B 
No dust will ever grow on this frame, 
E                       Dbm  
One million years I will say your name.
A                   B               E
I love you more than I can ever scream.


        E         Dbm
Booked our flight those years ago, 
    A                B
I said I love you as I left you.
    E              Dbm
'Grets still haunt my hollow head, 
      A         B              E
I promised you I will see you again.

Again.


E               Dbm
I sit here and smile dear, 
A                  B              E   Dbm
I smile because I think of you, I blush.
A                   B             E    Dbm
These bleeding hollow dials, this fuss.
A                   B
Fuss is made of miles and travels 
E                   Dbm
when roadways are but stones and gravel.
A           B                    E
A bleeding heart can conquer every crutch.

Interlude: E B Abm A

        E         Dbm 
Booked our flight those years ago, 
      A               B
You said you loved me as you left me.
   E                Dbm
'Grets still haunt your saddened head but 
     A          B          
I promised you I will see you.
        E         Dbm
Booked our flight those years ago, 
    A                  B
I said I loved you and I left you.
   E             Dbm
'Grets no longer in my head, 
      A                 B            E
But I promised you and now I'm home again, 

again, again, again, again, again.

I'm home again

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
