Intro: G    B  C      

G          Bm         C         G         
Sleep don't visit, so I choke on sun
        C         G  D
And the days blur into one
        C           G            C           G    D
And the backs of my eyes hum with things I've never done

G         Bm             C          G  
Sheets are swaying from an old clothesline
       C      G       D          C        G
Like a row of captured ghosts over old dead grass
          C           G       D
Was never much but we made the most

        Em    D     C     G  
Welcome home
        Em  D   C     G  

G        Bm       C       G
Ships are launching from my chest
          C         G      D 
Some have names but most do not
       C         G            C         G         D
If you find one, please let me know what piece I've lost

G       Bm        C      G
Heal the scars from off my back
        C         G  D
I don't need them any more
        C          G               C       G    D
You can throw them out or keep them in your mason jars

          Em    D     C     G  
I've come home

       Em          C        G  
All my nightmares escaped my head
        Em                C        G
Bar the door, please don't let them in
         Em      C        G  
You were never supposed to leave
       Em    C                G 
Now my head's splitting at the seams
    C       G      D
And I don't know if I can

Here, beneath my lungs, I feel your thumbs press into my skin again

  1. The easiest chords are +5

  2. matterhorn36

    If you want to play in the key of the actual song, transpose it to -1.

  3. Rainbow bridge

    Nice song!

  4. I’m pretty sure the B in the intro should be a Bm.
