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

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