Verse 1:
Dm           C
  We gather here, we line up
 Am                      Bb
Weeping in a sunlit room
    Dm           C     Am                      Bb
And   if I'm on fire, you'll be made of ashes too
 Dm                  C
Even on my worst day,  did I deserve babe
Am                   Bb
   All the hell you gave me
Dm
  'Cause I loved you
C                   Am                  Bb
  I swear I loved you   'til my dying day

Chorus:
F    Gm           Dm          Bb                F      Gm
        I didn't have it in myself to go with grace
                Dm          Bb       F         Gm
And you're the hero flying around saving face
            Dm               Bb                  F
And if I'm dead to you, why are you at the wake
            Gm               Dm
Cursing my name, wishing I stayed
            Bb
Look at how my tears ricochet

Verse 2:
Dm           C       Am                            Bb
  We gather stones, never knowing what they'll mean
Dm         C      Am                        Bb
  Some to throw, some to make a diamond ring
       Dm                   C
  You know I didn't want to   have to haunt you
Am                        Bb
  But what a ghostly scene
Dm                        C                Am             Bb
  You wear the same jewels  that I gave you  as you bury me
 
Chorus:
F    Gm           Dm          Bb                F     Gm
        I didn't have it in myself to go with grace
                 Dm                 Bb       F           Gm
'Cause when I'd fight, you used to tell me I   was brave
            Dm               Bb                  F
And if I'm dead to you, why are you at the wake
            Gm               Dm
Cursing my name, wishing I stayed
            Bb
Look at how my tears ricochet
 
Bridge:
F              Gm             Dm
  And I can go anywhere I want
         Bb                 F
Anywhere I want, just not home
                 Gm                       Dm
And you can aim for my heart, go for blood
                     Bb               F
But you would still miss me in your bones
           Gm            Dm            Bb                 F
And I still  talk to you    -When I'm screaming at the sky-
                  Gm              Dm              Bb
And when you can't sleep at night  -You hear my stolen lullabies-
 
Chorus:
          Dm          Bb                F     Gm
I didn't have it in myself to go with grace
            Dm                Bb         F          Gm
And so the battleships will sink beneath  the waves
            Dm              Bb                   F
You had to kill me, but it killed you just the same
              Gm               Dm
Cursing my name, wishing I stayed
                      Bb
You turned into your worst fears
F                          Gm                   Dm
  And you're tossing out blame, drunk on this pain,
                  Bb
Crossing out the good years
           F              Gm               Dm
And you're    cursing my name, wishing I stayed
            Bb
Look at how my tears ricochet
