Verse:
Gb
I can't take them on my own, my own
Oh, I'm not the one you know, you know
I have killed a man and all I know
Is I am on the run and go.

Chorus:
                             B
Don't wanna call you in the nighttime
                             Gb
Don't wanna give you all my pieces
                             B
Don't wanna hand you all my trouble
                             Gb
Don't wanna give you all my demons
                           B
You'll have to watch me struggle
                      Ebm
From several rooms away
       Gb          Db         Gb   
But tonight I'll need you to stay.

Interlude:
Gb       B Gb   Ebm B Gb Db Ebm B Gb
Do-do-do-do, do-do-do-do...

Verse:
Gb
I am up against the wall, the wall
For I hear them coming down the hall
I have killed a man and all I know
Is I am on the run and go.

Chorus:
                             B
Don't wanna call you in the nighttime
                             Gb
Don't wanna give you all my pieces
                             B
Don't wanna hand you all my trouble
                             Gb
Don't wanna give you all my demons
                           B
You'll have to watch me struggle
                      Ebm
From several rooms away

But tonight I'll need you to stay.

Ab    Eb    Fm Bbm    Ab     Eb   C   Db Eb
Cold nights under      siege from accusations
  Ab Eb  Fm Bbm     Ab  Eb  C     Db Eb
Cerebral thunder in one-way conversations

    Lyrics for people who love this song but cant play it well:

    I can’t play this my own, my own
    These are not the chords I know, I know
    I have killed my ears and all I know
    Is I am on the run and go

    Don’t want to call you in the nighttime
    Don’t want to give you all my pieces
    Don’t want to hand you all my troubles
    Don’t want to give you all my demons
    You’ll have to watch me struggle

  8. JoshDunIsBae

    LOVE this song! I’m just confused about the key change, it doesn’t sound right when I’m singing as well as playing…

  9. The ACTUAL lyrics:

    I can’t do it on my own, my own,
    Pa, I’m not the one you know, you know
    I have killed a man and all, I know,
    Is I, am on the run and go-

    And then:

    I am up against the wall, the wall,
    Pa, I hear them coming down, the hall
    I have killed a man and all, I know
    Is I, am on the run and go

  10. imnotgoodatthis

  11. where it says nights, from, cerebral, and one-way in one of the verses, try changing the Eb to a D.

  12. thenamesizzy_

  13. Caitlyn O'loughlin

    That isn’t much betterwhen it comes to, “cold nights. . . “

  14. michelleyas

    For an easier version try -1 with capo on 1 to stay in the same key :)
