Intro: 
    Dbm E A
    Dbm E A


Dbm             E                  A     Dbm
   I guess you really did it this time
         E                A     Dbm
Left yourself in your war path
          E                 A     Dbm
Lost your balance on a tightrope
          E                     A    B
Lost your mind trying to get it back


          Dbm    A                          B
Wasn't it easi--er in your lunchbox days?
         Dbm     A                  B
Always a bigger bed, to crawl into
          Dbm    A                                    
Wasn't it beautiful when you believed in everything
B  - once -       Dbm          A     
  And everybody believed in you


E                                   
 It's alright, just wait and see your,
B                                           Dbm
String of lights are still bright to me, oh
                                  A                         
Who you are is not what you've been, 
                         Dbm  E  A
You're still an innocent
                         Dbm  E  A
You're still an innocent


Dbm         E                      A    Dbm
  Did some things you can't speak of
      E                         A     Dbm
But tonight you'll live it all again
                E                      A     Dbm
You wouldn't be shattered on the floor now
                E                  A         B
If only you had seen what you know now then

      
          Dbm    A                                  B
Wasn't it easi--er in your firefly catching days?
               Dbm     A
And everything out of reach 
                                  B
Someone bigger brought down to you
          Dbm    A                                    B
Wasn't it beautiful running wild 'till you fell asleep
                    Dbm           A
Before the monsters caught up to you


E                                    B
 It's alright just wait and see your,
                                            Dbm
String of lights are still bright to me, oh
                                    A
Who you are is not what you've been,  
                        E
You're still an innocent


                                B
It's okay, life is a tough crowd,  
                                    Dbm
Thirty-two and still growing up now
                               A
Who you are is not what you did,  
                         Dbm E A
You're still an innocent 


Dbm                           
Time turns flames to embers, 
B
You'll have new September's
A
Everyone of us has messed up too, ooh
Dbm                            
Lives change like the weather, 
B
I hope you remember
A                         
Today is never too late to.. 
         Dbm E A    Dbm E A
Be brand newww..,  Oohohohoh


E                                    B
 It's alright, just wait and see your,
                                           Dbm
String of lights are still bright to me, oh
                                    A
Who you are is not what you've been,  
                        E
You're still an innocent


                                B
It's okay, life is a tough crowd,  
                                    Dbm
Thirty-two and still growing up now
                               A
Who you are is not what you did,  
                         Dbm E A
You're still an innocent 
                         Dbm E A
You're still an innocent


Dbm - once - E                  A 
Lost your Balance on a tightrope, ohoh
Dbm         E                    A 
It's never too late to get it back

  1. -4 is easiest

  2. I like +1 the best :)

  3. UkuleleUnicorn

    Can I make a suggestion? E sounds fine during the chorus, but for the verses I think it should be replaced with B. In my opinion, it sounds more like the recording:

    Dbm B A Dbm
    “I guess you really did it this time…”

    The rest of the chords sound great, though. I love it :)
