Capo 2

A
When I was young, I knew a girl
      D                     A
Who wouldn't love god as a test
    D                   A
Or gamble with her happiness
             E
And so led astray

So she did turn
Her father would say,
'You're only a guest of the master'
But passion was her sunday best
And she fell away

         A
She fell away, She fell away
         D                         A
She fell away from the side of the lord
            F#m                 E
And she was free to do what she wanted
                   D
With clouds of her own
          A
Na na na na

When she grew up, she fell in love
She thought it was all that she wanted
She knew how it felt to be haunted
And he ran away

Picked herself up
And said through her tears
Don't waste anymore of your time
You'll spend it all standing in line
They'll turn you away

She fell away, She fell away
She fell away from the side of the lord
And she was free to do what she wanted
With clouds of her own
Na na na na

       D Bm  A  
Oh but superstition
         D       Bm A
And your heart's permission  
              F#m                       D
'Cause you're good enough, good enough, good enough
            E
To make it alone

A D A D A E F

              Bb
Then when she died
She didn't ask god
   D#                     Bb
To take her back into his graces
      D#                Bb
She'd taken on to many shapes
                  F
And too many were strange

And as they lay her in to the ground
Her spirits, they all flew all away
The sun shone so bright on that day
You thought it was spring

         Bb
She fell away, She fell away
         D#                        Bb
She fell away from the side of the lord
            Gm                  F
And she was free to do what she wanted
                   D#
With clouds of her own
