Moderate strumming without a pick,but with lots of heart....

Em                  G             C               Em
At night' I woke up cryin' in the lane behind the house
Em             G               C                 Em 
Ghosts wet and steamin' by the time I figured it out

C                      Em
You didn't die in the fire
C                                   Em
Was the flood that carried you from me
C                                  Em
And the embers of your house still glowin'

Make it hard, hard, hard to...
C        Em
C                 Em
It's hard to breathe

Em               G       C             
Not much room to go more crazy
Em                 G               C            Em
A flamin' sword above my head for all of you to see

C               Em
Beware my girl, beware
Beware my girl, beware! of these

Memories, ies, ies... and what is
C           Em
Em      C              Em
What is reeeeeeaaaaaaallll

(strum briefly)

C                                 Em
I walk this world forever in a dream
C                              Em
Or is this the land of the living?
C                           Em
Or is this your way to tell me

That I, I, I couldn't
C                Em
Save you, ooooo ooo ooo
Em         C             Em
I Couldn't save you ooo oo oo

Em   G     C    Em     
(strum out with this progression X2, gradually slowing your pace the second time through)
