Verse 1
          Bm                   Aadd4/C#
I’ve been living with a curse
G/D                             D
Combing through the pages of my youth
There’s a million soggy miles
Bm                  G           D5    Dsus4 D
Soaking through the soles of my shoes
              Bm                    Aadd4/C#
And I’ve been staying up all night
        G/D                         D
I don’t give a damn to sleep anymore
My eyelids are heavy
       Bm           G           D5    Dsus4 D
But my dreams don’t sing like before

       Bm         Aadd4              G              D
And I apologize a thousand times for holding up the show
  Bm             Aadd4                 G                   D
I always had the words, but they don’t quite know where to go
         A                            Bm*        G    Gadd#11 G
You said give me one good reason, now give me 20 more
      G5             D/A           G              D5    Dsus4 D
Don’t give yourself away to settle someone else’s score

D5 Dsus4 D

Verse 2
I got the guiltiest conscience
Aadd4/C#        G/D                   D
Listening for a saviour on a Saturday night
I got my ear to the ground
Bm             G              D5    Dsus4 D
You got Easter Sunday in your eyes

       Bm          Aadd4    G          D
And I apologise if I seem a little overwhelmed
    Bm               Aadd4        G             D
I’m thirsty, but the holy keep on pissing in my well
A                     Bm*           G    Gadd#11 G
I had a purpose and a song that was true
      G5               D/A           G                D5    Dsus4 D
But I ain’t ever had a lick of sense when it comes to you

D5 Dsus4 D

D5 Dsus4 D

   Bm        Aadd4    G           D
So try to be patient, try to understand
Bm           Aadd4            G         D
I’m a child, trying to do the work of a man
   A                  Bm*           G    Gadd#11 G
My pockets are empty, I don’t own a thing
               G5               D/A     G              D5    Dsus4 D
But I’d take a diamond from the sky and put it in your ring
