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

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

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