Verse:
    Bb                             F
The air begins to feel a little thin
     Dm                           C
As I start the car and then I begin
   Bb                         F
To add the miles piled up behind me
  Dm                           C
I barely feel a smile deep inside me


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

Chorus:
  Bb        F        Dm
I began to understand
   C         Bb
Why God died

Interlude -x2-: Bb F Dm C

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

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

Interlude -x2-: Bb F Dm C

Chorus:
  Bb        F       Dm
I began to understand
  C
Why God died

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


    Bb     F       Dm C
For me to walk away with
  Bb         F      Dm
I began to understand
  C
Why God died
