True Sadness  The Avett Brothers

[G] [C] [G] [C]  
[G]you were a friend to me [C]when my wheels were off the track
and [Am]though you say there is no need [C]i intend to [D]pay you back
[G]when my mind was turning loose and [C]all my thoughts were turning black
[Am]you shined a light on me and [C]i intend to [D]pay you back
[G]when i was a child i de[C]pended on a bottle
and [Am]full grown i've been known to [C]lean on a [D]bible
but [G]you're the real deal in a [C]world of imposters
and [Am]i've seen the program make [C]men out of [D]monsters
'cause [C]i still wake up [G]shaken by dreams
and [C]i hate to say it but the [G]way it seems
is that [C]no [D]one is [G]fine[C]
take the [D]time to [G]peel a few layers
and [Em]you will find
[C]tru[D]e [G]sadness
[G]adam and eve must have [C]really done a number
on that [Am]garden when the [C]apple was [D]finished
[G]leaving behind them a [C]den made of sadness
and [Am]damn if that can't or [C]won't be re[D]plenished
[C]angela became a [G]target
as [D]soon as her beauty was [G]seen
by [C]young men who try to re[G]duce her down
to a [Am]scene on an x-rated [D]screen
is she not [C]more than the curve of her [G]hips
is she not [C]more than the shine on her [G]lips
does she not [C]dream to see and to [G]live and to dance down her [D]own path
[Am]without being [D]torn apart
does she not have a [C]heart
i [G]cannot go on with this [C]evil inside me
i [Am]step out my front door and i [C]feel it sur[D]round me
just [G]know the kingdom of [C]god is within you
[Am]even though the battle is [C]bound to con[D]tinue
[Em]true [C]sadness
[Em]true [C]sadness
[(C)]true [D]true [G]sadness
[G] [C] [G] [C] [G] [C] [G] [D] [G]
