intro: G D-Dsus2 Am        (when you see D play D-Dsus2)

G              D          Am
I could have treated you better
G                       D         Am
But you couldn't have treated me worse
G        D      Am
But it's he who laughs last
G  D             Am
Is he who cries first

G            D             Am
Sometimes I feel I know strangers
G           D       Am
Better than I know my friends
G       D     Am
Why must a beginning
G       D          Am
Be the means to an end

      G             Cadd9
The stones from my enemies
G                 Cadd9
These wounds will mend
   Em           D
But I cannot survive

G         D                  Am
When the last word has been spoken
                  G              D            Am
And we've beared witness to the final setting sun
G                 D          Am
All that shall remain is a token
G              D        Am
Of what we've said and done

G              D             Am
When all we've had has been forsaken
G                   D           Am
Distant church bells no longer ring
G          D                Am
That's the sound of a heart taken
G                 D        Am
And the story of tears from a king


      G             Cadd9
The stones from my enemies
G                 Cadd9
These wounds will mend
   Em           D
But I cannot survive             
    Cadd9   (***)   G            
the roses from my friends
   Em           D      Cadd9-Bm5*-Asus4
oh i cannot survive the roses


(repeat verse)
This may be the last time I see you
Forgive me for holding you close
This may be the last time that I see you
So of this moment I will make the most
This may be the last time I see you
But if you keep me in your heart
Together we shall be eternal
If you believe
We shall never part

      G             Cadd9
The stones from my enemies
G                 Cadd9
These wounds will mend
   Em           D
But I cannot survive             
    Cadd9   (***)   G            
the roses from my friends
   Em           D      
oh i cannot survive

Cadd9 Bm5* Asus4 (x3)
the roses...

          Cadd9     Bm5* Bb5* Cadd9   G
