 EAAsus4A
 Sheets of empty canvas        
 EAAsus4A
untouched sheets of clay               
 EA
 Were laid spread out before me
 E
as her body once did

 EAAsus4A
 All five horizons,        
 EAAsus4A
revolved around her soul (as the earth to the sun)      
 EA
 Now the air I tasted and breathed,
 E
has taken a turn

 CEm
Oooh and all I know I taught her was... everything
 CEm
Oooh I know she gave all... that she wore
 D
And now my bitter hands
 C
Chafe beneath the clouds
 Em
Of what was everything
 DC
Oh the pictures have, all been washed in black
 Em
Tatooed everything.

 EAAsus4A
take a walk outside       
 EAAsus4A
I'm surrounded by some kids at play        
 EA
 I can feel their laughter
 E
So why do I sear

 CEm
Ooh and twisted thoughts they spin... round my head (I'm spinnin')
 CEm
Oooh I'm spinning how quick the sun can drop away-ay-ay-ay-ay
 D
And my bitter hands
 C
Cradle broken glass
 Em
Of what was everything
 DC
All the pictures had all been washed in black
 Em
 Tatooed everything
 D
All the love gone bad
 C
turned my world to black
 D
tatooed all I see
 C
All that I am
 EmDC
All that I'll be...    yeaah-heah
 Em
know some day you'll have a beautiful life
 D
know you'll be a sun,
 CEmD
In somebody elses sky, why, why   why
 CEmDCEm
can't it be, can't it be mine  .

after,  "the air has turned," there aren't other words... the other part is "cradle broken glass"
