Verse:
    BbBb chord                             FF chord
The air begins to feel a little thin
     DmDm chord                           CC chord
As I start the car and then I begin
   BbBb chord                         FF chord
To add the miles piled up behind me
  DmDm chord                           CC chord
I barely feel a smile deep inside me


      BbBb chord                                FF chord
And I begin to envy the headlights driving south
          DmDm chord                             CC chord
I want to crack the door so I can just fall out
     BbBb chord                              FF chord
But then I remember when you packed my car
    DmDm chord                                  CC chord
You reached in the back and bucked up your heart
    BbBb chord     FF chord     DmDm chord   CC chord
For me to drive away with

Chorus:
  BbBb chord        FF chord        DmDm chord
I began to understand
   CC chord         BbBb chord
Why God died

Interlude -x2-: BbBb chord FF chord DmDm chord CC chord

Verse:
    BbBb chord                           FF chord
The demon sat there waiting on her porch
         DmDm chord                             CC chord
It was a little dark so we held a makeshift torch
    BbBb chord                          FF chord
And when my car was far out of sight
   DmDm chord                                         CC chord
He crept in her room and stayed there for the night

           BbBb chord
And then I felt chills in my bones
             FF chord
The breath I saw was not my own
          DmDm chord
I knew my skin that wrapped my frame
        CC chord
Wasn't made to play this game
            BbBb chord
And then I saw Him, torch in hand
            FF chord
He laid it out, what he had planned
           DmDm chord
And then I said, I'll take the grave
              CC chord
Please, just send them all my way

Interlude -x2-: BbBb chord FF chord DmDm chord CC chord

Chorus:
  BbBb chord        FF chord       DmDm chord
I began to understand
  CC chord
Why God died

Interlude -x2-: BbBb chord FF chord DmDm chord CC chord

Outro:
    BbBb chord                            FF chord
The air begins to feel a little thin
         DmDm chord                          CC chord
As we're waiting for the morning to begin
BbBb chord                                FF chord
But for now you told me to hold this jar
           DmDm chord
And when I looked inside, I saw
         CC chord
It held your heart


    BbBb chord     FF chord       DmDm chord CC chord
For me to walk away with
  BbBb chord         FF chord      DmDm chord
I began to understand
  CC chord
Why God died

  1. ive got a jar of dirt!

  2. the pattern i used was D D D DUD D D DU

  3. It’s actually goes Bb, F, Dm and then Csus4. I can hear it from the piano. To do the Csus4 shape, just do your C and then add a finger to the first fret of the 2nd lower string.

  4. Dat lone birb

    I’m sorry but when it gets to the lyric: “But for now you told me to hold this jar and when I looked inside, I saw It held your heart”

    I cant not think of pirates of the Caribbean I got a jar of dirt…

  5. Panic! At the twenty øne chemical disco brides

    Hai yeah that’s what I was thinking, but to play forest, I put a capo on the third fret

  6. Legit same chords as forest…

  7. ThatCrazyPanda

    +2 is much better to play in. It sounds better and it’s easier to play!
