E A Asus4 A
Sheets of empty canvas
E A A Asus4 A
untouched sheets of clay
E A
her lace spread out before me
E
as her body once did

E A Asus4 A
all five horizons,
E A Asus4 A
revolved around her soul as the earth to the sun
E A
now the air I tasted and breathed,
E
has taken a turn
C Em
oooh all I know I taught her was.. everything
C Em
oooh all I she gave me all.. that she wore
D
and my bitter hands
C
shake beneath the clouds
Em
of what was everything
D C
all the pictures have all been washed in black
Em
tatooed everything
E A Asus4 A
I take a walk outside
E A Asus4 A
I'm surrounded by some kids at play
E A
I can feel their laughter
E
so what can I say
C Em
ooh all my twisted thoughts they spin round my head im spinnin
C Em
oooh i'm spinnin how quick the sun can drop awayayayay
D
and my bitter hands
C
cradle broken glass
Em
of what was everything
D C
all my pictures have all been washed in black
Em
tatooed everything
D
all my love gone bad
C
turned my world to black
D
tatooed all I see
C
all that I am
Em
all that I'll beeeeeeee yeaahheah

D
I know some day you'll have a beautiful life
C
I know you'll be a sun,
Em D C
in somebody else's sky, whyhy, whyhy whyhy
Em
cant it be in, cant it be miiiiiiine.
