Should've Kept My Eyes Shut  The Beautiful South

[D] [Bm] [D] [Bm]  
I should've kept my [D]eyes shut[Bm]
But I had to go and [D]peep[Bm]
But when you [D]saw what I [Bm]saw
Well, it's [Em]hard just to [A]roll back to [Bm]slee[A]p
I would've kept me eyes shut
But I thought I heard you scream
And I've a penchant for violence
You don't seem to find in a dream
The [G]scene a little [D]clearer
My [G]father with a [D]rope
And [G]in the cage, [D]centre-stage
It's [Bm]mother who's destined to [A]choke
And she [Em]choke and we [A]choke
On the [D]words that we wish we'd not [G]spoke
[Em]Just when you felt you had [A]someone to trust
[D]Up comes the man with a [Db]dagger and [G]cloak[A]
I should've read the novels
Believed every word
But the stories they wrote
Were so different to ones that I'd heard
I should've kept my eyes shut
My mouth should've closed
But the mixture of vomit and blood
Just crept up through my nose
It became a little clearer
As soon as I awoke
My father stands with rope in hand
A screaming mother kneels in hope
And she hope and we hope
That the words that she said won't provoke
A smile is removed and a petal is crushed
What once was a laugh has turned into a joke
You should've kept your mouth shut
