Verse 1:
Eb
I knew
                                            Bb
When you told me you don't wanna go home tonight
                                                  Ab
And you tried to just shrug it off when I asked you why
 
Somebody hurt you
 
Somebody hurt you
Bb
But you're here by my side
       Eb
And I knew
                                                 Bb
'Cause I can recall when I was the one in your seat
                                             Ab
I still got the scars and they occasionally bleed
 
Cause somebody hurt me
 
Somebody hurt me
Eb
But I'm staying alive
 
Pre-Chorus:
           Ab
And I can tell
 
When you get nervous
                  Bb
You think being yourself
 
Means being unworthy
                    Ab
And it's hard to love
Ab
With a heart that's hurting
           Bb
But if you want to go out dancing
 
Chorus:
          Eb
I know a place
                       Bb
I know a place we can go
                      Cm
Where everyone gonna lay down their weapon
Cm                    Fm
Lay down their weapon
                      Bb
Just give me trust and watch what'll happen
         Eb
'Cause I know
                        Bb
I know a place we can run
                      Cm
Where everyone gonna lay down their weapon
 
Lay down their weapon
Fm                      Bb

Just lay down your weapon
 
Verse 2:
Eb
Right now
                                                  Bb
It's like you're carrying all the weight of your past
                                                 Ab
I see all your bruises, yellow, dark blue, and black
 
But baby a bruise is only your body

Tryna keep you intact
         Eb
So right now
                                         Bb
I think we should go get drunk on cheap wine
Bb                                     Ab
I think we should hop on the purple line
 
'Cause maybe our purpose
                  Bb
Is to never give up when we're on the right track
 
Pre-Chorus:
           Ab
And I can tell
 
When you get nervous

You think being yourself
 
Means being unworthy
                    Ab
And it's hard to love
