 F                       C
I put on that sweater you gave me
 Am                       G
I woke up in the kitchen a few minutes later
  F                     C
I didn't know how I had gotten there
Did you guide me

      F                 c
I didn't make it to your funeral
            Am           G
I didn't want ritual nor resign
  F                   C
I just wanted to hold hands with
 F           C
J.P and Mary-Jo

But I couldn't conjure tears
We're too good for stupid angels
Blackness held its breath beside me
And burned the air till it was gone
           F    C
Till it was gone
           F    G
Till it was gone

Couldn't pay my respects to a dead man
Your life was much more to me
And I chased away with sticks and stones
But that rage kept following me
Following Me
Following Me

So lost I was asleep in the palms of your hand
In dreams we were happy and safe
I can't comprehend the ways I miss you
They come to light in my mistakes
In my mistakes
In my mistakes

       F               Em
Now I'm travelling down Tacoma way
       C              F
And the world turns in slow motion
       C                    G
It's the twilight of our old home
       F        G         C
And I'm still in love with you

  F               Em
Oh here on South Tacoma way
     C             F
We've memories for matinees
       Am                   G
And the tears come warm and heavy
       F             G         C
And the cross streets bare your name
       F             G         C
And the cross streets bare your name
