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

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

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