E, A, E, B, A x2

  When you were young
             B              A       E
You were the king of carrot flowers
                          B                    A     B
And how you built a tower tumbling through the trees
                          A                   E
In holy rattlesnakes that fell all around your feet

A, E, B, A

E                                       B            A        E
  And your mom would stick a fork right into daddy's shoulder
                                     B              A      B
And your dad would throw the garbage all across the floor
                               A                       E
As we would lay and learn what each other's bodies were for

A, E, B, A

  And this is the room 
         B                   A        E
One afternoon I knew I could love you
                         B              A    B
And from above you how I sank into your soul
                             A              E
Into that secret place where no one dares to go

A, E, B, A

E                                       B          A        E
  And your mom would drink until she was no longer speaking
                               B                 A   B
And dad would dream of all the different ways to die
                            A               E
Each one a little more than he could dare to try
