Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Padriac My Prince  Bright Eyes

[Am]I had a brother once
[G]He drowned in a bathtub
[F]before he'd ever learned how to talk [E]           [Am]
And I don't know w[G]hat his name was
[F]but my mother does
[E]I heard her say it once
[Am]Padraic my prince, I have all but died
[G]From the sheer weight of my shame
[F]You cried but no one came
[E]And the water filled your tiny lungs
[Am]Appear, my dear, and cry for me
[G]Six years ago today
[F]That I laid you in your grave
[E]Your sweet young skin was shining then too
[Am]So tonight to celebrate i will... [F]
I will p[G]oison myself
[Am]Another coughing, shaking fit in a bathroom       [F]
That is spi[G]nning
So I c[C]lose the door [G]
And I res[Am]t my head on the tile floor
[C]Sickness and sleep [G]turning me cold           [Am]
[C]I'm still not sur[G]e
Is there some better [Am]place I could be heading towards?[F]
[C]Where the selfishly sick and[G] self-absorbed...   [Am]
[Am]Are welcome
[Am]I saw the future once
[G]I was drunk in a phone booth
[F]My eyes were wet and red
[E]But I could not tell what was said         [Am]
And through the screams of[G] the traffic
[F]Voices carried
[E]Saying I'm sorry
[Am]On a day so gray it's black inside
[G]Watching churches on TV
[F]In a coma you don't dream
[E]You just hope that someone sits with you
[Am]Babies turn blue when they're ignored
[G]Like the sky on summer days
[F]Before you turn and walk away
[E]It has changed you
[Am]So tonight to compensate I will...     [F]
I will p[G]oison myself
[Am]Another coughing, shaking fit in a bathroom       [F]
That is spi[G]nning

[Am]    [E]
