She's never alone[D],
because she's [A]scared of what she might say to hersel[B]f
Always [A]drinking in the backroom of the [D]bar [F#]where [G]every[A]one turns[B] in
A half-hearted[A] grin
She won't be afraid[D]
as long as [A]that prescription keeps going [B]through
A D F# G A Riff 1
And all the happy pills make her look like cardboard cut out of someone
Riff 2
I use to learn from
D ,D/C# B
But on the phone, she's telling everyone,
G(10th fret)
that there was a blue sky,
F#(9th fret) E(7th fret)
she left behind
And there's a[D] place that no one [D/C#]knows about,
Riff 3
Away from integrity
B D Riff 4(Bridge)
she writes a book in her head that nobody will read
Whatever you say[D],
please don't [A]talk about the time when she was [B]young
Appare[A]ntly that was a different person
D F# G A Riff 1 Riff 2
and so long ago it's strange to me, there's no history
[D]But there's a past[D/C#] and she's [B]telling everyone
G(10th fret)
It must be a garden,
F#(9th fret) E(7th fret)
that wouldn't grow
With roots of [D]shame, too sensitive [D/C#]to blame
Riff 3
to herself as we watch he drown,
B D play interlude
I can't save the queen without a kingdom or a crown
[D]Somewhere in this lonely game of [A]sympathy
there is a [B]selfish dream [A]That makes me [G]sick
[D]Standing on the high wire while you're [A]on the ground
B / C# / D Riff 5
To you what is dangerous is safe and sound...
You let me down
-play outro
