Gsus4  Em/G
poor   boy

    Cadd9    C6sus4*  Gsus4  Em/G  Dm  C6sus4
your wife is in hard  labor

   Gsus4       Em/G
the rhythm you know

     Cadd9       C6sus4        Gsus4  Em/G  Dm  C6sus4
is pulsing and drifting to the grave

Gsus4        Em/G
when you come too

         Cadd9       C6sus4        Gsus4     Em/G  Dm
you'll be asking yourself just one question

     C6sus4       Gsus4  Em/G  Dm
was I always this way?

     C6sus4       Gsus4  Em/G  Dm  C6sus4  Gsus4  Em/G  Dm  C6sus4
was I always this way?


Gsus4       Em/G
think back a year

     Cadd9      C6sus4       Gsus4   Em/G  Dm  C6sus4
when everything stood at the surface

Gsus         Em/G           Cadd9             C6sus4    Gsus4
bandage your cuts because you don't know what swims underneath

Em/G  Dm  C6sus4

Gsus4   Em/G
hold    tight

   Cadd9            C6sus4   Gsus4  Em/G
the bondage of this life is slipping

Dm   C6sus4         Gsus4  Em/G
 why shouldn't it be me?

Dm   C6sus4         Gsus4  Em/G  Dm  C6sus4  Gsus4  Em/G
 why shouldn't it be me?

Dm  C6sus4 Gsus4 Em/G Dm Em/G

C6sus4~
  when I come back

              Gsus4     Em/G
you'll be the brightest star

      Dm     Em/G 
in the black

C6sus4~          C6sus4~
  when there are days
                 Gsus4        Em/G       Dm  Gsus4
that you want the call we're all waiting for

    Em/G
think back

Gsus4  Em/G
poor   boy

Cadd9  C6sus4   Gsus4  Em/G  Dm  C6sus4
life is in hard labor

Gsus4  Em/G    Cadd9          C6sus4       Gsus4  Em/G  Dm  C6sus4
go     buy the flowers you'll leave on its grave

Gsus4        Em/G     Cadd9
then with the goal of movement

    C6sus4      Gsus4    Em/G  Dm
now one this is different

    C6sus4        Gsus4  Em/G  Dm
you don't want to change

    C6sus4        Gsus4~
I don't want to change

end on Gsus4


Enjoy :)
