Intro -x2-: A Asus4 A Asus2

Verse 1:
A       Asus4              A        
I wanna fall inside your ghost
  Asus2          A     Asus4     A      Asus2
And fill up every hole inside my mind
A            Asus4      A  
And I want everyone to know
     Asus2       A    Asus4  A    Asus2
That I am half a soul divid..ed

Chorus:
Bm                              E                      
Sometimes we will die and sometimes we will fly away
Bm                            Gbm             E
Either way you're by my side until my dying days
Bm                                 E
And if I'm not there and I'm far away


           A   Amaj7  Gbm
I said, "Don't be afraid."
           A   Amaj7  Gbm               Asus4
I said, "Don't be afraid. We're going home."

Interlude -x2-: A  Asus4  A  Asus2

Verse 2:
A        Asus4             A 
I wanna strip myself of breath
   Asus2             A         Asus4     A   Asus2  
A breathless piece of death I've made for you
A         Asus4            A        Asus2           A    
A mortal writing piece of song will help me carry on
    Asus4     A      Asus2
But this you heard

Chorus:
Bm                             E                      
Sometimes we will die and sometimes we will fly away
Bm                            Gbm            E
Either way you're by my side until my dying days
Bm                                 E
And if I'm not there and I'm far away


           A   Amaj7 Gbm
I said, "Don't be afraid."
           A   Amaj7 Gbm               Asus4
I said, "Don't be afraid. We're going home."

Interlude -x2-: A  Amaj7  Gbm

Verse 3:
A                        Amaj7    
So the hearse ran out of gas
                             Gbm
A passenger person grabbed a map
                          
And the driver inside it contrived a new route to save the past
A                                          
And checked his watch and grabbed a cab
Amaj7
A beautifully plain taxi cab
Gbm                             
A cab, had it cleared out back and two men started to unpack


A
Driving once again
    Amaj7
But now this time there were three men
    Gbm
And then I heard one of them say,
 
"I know the night will turn to gray
  A
I know the stars will start to fade
   Amaj7
When all the darkness fades away
  Gbm
We had to steal him from his fate

So he could see another day."


A                      Amaj7
Then I cracked open my box
                             Gbm
Someone must have picked the lock
                           
A little light revealed the spot
                            A
Where my fingernails had fought
                       Amaj7
Then I pushed it open more
                       Gbm
Pushing up against the door
                     
Then I sat up off the floor
                                      A
And found the breath I was searching for


                              Amaj7
Then there were three men up front
                         Gbm
All I saw were backs of heads
                                                         A
And then I asked, "Am I alive and well or am I dreaming dead?"
                              Amaj7
And then one turned around to say,
                                  Gbm
"We're driving toward the morning sun
                               
Where all your blood is washed away
                           A
And all you did will be undone."

Interlude: Amaj7 Gbm


           A   Amaj7 Gbm
I said, "Don't be afraid."
           A   Amaj7 Gbm              Asus4
I said, "Don't be afraid. We're going home."
