Intro:
   G   D   Bm   C
   Em  D   Bm   C  -x2-
 
Verse 1:
Em           D
  We gather here, we line up
 Bm                      C
Weeping in a sunlit room
    Em           D     Bm                      C
And   if I'm on fire, you'll be made of ashes too
 Em                  D
Even on my worst day,  did I deserve babe
Bm                   C
   All the hell you gave me
Em
  'Cause I loved you
D                   Bm                  C
  I swear I loved you   'til my dying day

Chorus:
G    Am           Em          C                G      Am
        I didn't have it in myself to go with grace
                Em          C       G         Am
And you're the hero flying around saving face
            Em               C                  G
And if I'm dead to you, why are you at the wake
            Am               Em
Cursing my name, wishing I stayed
            C
Look at how my tears ricochet
 
Interlude: G    Am   Em   C
 
Verse 2:
Em           D       Bm                            C
  We gather stones, never knowing what they'll mean
Em         D      Bm                        C
  Some to throw, some to make a diamond ring
       Em                   D
  You know I didn't want to   have to haunt you
Bm                        C
  But what a ghostly scene
Em                        D                Bm             C
  You wear the same jewels  that I gave you  as you bury me
 
Chorus:
G    Am           Em          C                G     Am
        I didn't have it in myself to go with grace
                 Em                 C       G           Am
'Cause when I'd fight, you used to tell me I   was brave
            Em               C                  G
And if I'm dead to you, why are you at the wake
            Am               Em
Cursing my name, wishing I stayed
            C
Look at how my tears ricochet
 
Bridge:
G              Am             Em
  And I can go anywhere I want
         C                 G
Anywhere I want, just not home
                 Am                       Em
And you can aim for my heart, go for blood
                     C               G
But you would still miss me in your bones
           Am            Em            C                 G
And I still  talk to you    -When I'm screaming at the sky-
                  Am              Em              C
And when you can't sleep at night  -You hear my stolen lullabies-
 
Chorus:
          Em          C                G     Am
I didn't have it in myself to go with grace
            Em                C         G          Am
And so the battleships will sink beneath  the waves
            Em              C                   G
You had to kill me, but it killed you just the same
              Am               Em
Cursing my name, wishing I stayed
                      C
You turned into your worst fears
G                          Am                   Em
  And you're tossing out blame, drunk on this pain,
                  C
Crossing out the good years
           G              Am               Em
And you're    cursing my name, wishing I stayed
            C
Look at how my tears ricochet
 
Outro -x3-: G  Am  Em  C

What strum pattern is everyone using?
