Verse 1
Cm               Ab                Eb                  
I don't like walking around this old and empty house
Cm                     Ab                Eb
So hold my hand, I'll walk with you my dear
Cm                Ab           Eb
The stairs creak as I sleep, it's keeping me awake
Cm                      Ab                 Eb
It's the house telling you to close your eyes
Cm           Ab        Eb
Some days I can't even trust myself
Cm                  Ab            Eb
It's killing me to see you this way

Chorus
                   Cm        Ab

Verse 2
            Cm          Ab            Eb                  
There's an old voice in my head that's holding me back
Cm               Ab                Eb
Tell her that I miss our little talks
Cm                Ab         Eb
Soon it will be over and buried with our past
Cm                 Ab                   Eb
We used to play outside when we were young - and full of life and full of love -
Cm          Ab             Eb
Some days I don't know if I am wrong or right
Cm                     Ab               Eb
Your mind is playing tricks on you my dear

Chorus
                   Cm        Ab         
'Cause though the truth may vary
    Eb           Bb
This ship will carry
      Cm    Ab        Eb     Bb
Our bodies safe to shore  Hey!
Cm                  Ab    Eb     Bb
Don't listen to a word I say. Hey!
Cm                 Ab       Eb     Bb
The screams all sound the same. Hey!
                   Cm        Ab         
'Cause though the truth may vary
    Eb           Bb
This ship will carry
      Cm    Ab        Eb     Bb
Our bodies safe to shore

Verse 3
Cm
You're gone, gone, gone away. I watched you disappear
Cm 
All that's left is a ghost of you
Cm
Now we're torn, torn, torn apart, there's nothing we can do. 
Cm
Just let me go, we'll meet again soon.
Cm               Ab              Eb 
Now wait, wait, wait for me. Please hang around
Cm         Ab            Eb      Bb
I see you when I fall asleep. Hey!

  1. play -1, capo on the first fret and im not sure about strumming pattern

    • reading is as much fun as a girl can have without taking her clothes off.

      i do dduudu(traditional Hawaiian) for most except verse 3 and just do a single strum down(i am playing on -1 with capo so its an Am for me)! i hope this helped

  2. Transpose to -1 for easier chords

  3. Ah this feeels so god to play
