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

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

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