[Verse 1]
(D)        AI (x02220@1)was born old
       Bm (x24432@1)         F#mI (244222@1)grew up but I got younger
       Bm (x24432@1)     F#mI (244222@1)was torn, and cold
        Bm (x24432@1)                  ANow (x02220@1)I'm fine but there's this hunger
      G (320003@1)             AAnd (x02220@1)a thirst for the days
       D (xx0232@1)         F#mBefore (244222@1)I went and razed it all
G (320003@1) A (x02220@1) DTo (xx0232@1)the ground

[Verse 2]
Got a job, found God
I did everything they told me
Spoiled the child, spared the rod
And found someone new to hold me
Though the love's not as real
As what I used to feel when it
All went wrong

D (xx0232@1)         ALa (x02220@1)da da da da da,
Bm (x24432@1)        F#mLa (244222@1)da da da da da
G (320003@1)      D (xx0232@1)       A (x02220@1)      DLa (xx0232@1)da da da da da, La da da da

[Verse 3]
She was young, not scared - she was everything I wanted
I was dumb, unprepared - had no idea that I was haunted
By the ghosts of a life the night I hid the knives
And it all went wrong

[Verse 4]
It's an old wound, but it opened in a new way
In a rest room in a rest stop on the thruway
She calls up her parents
And admits with embarrassment
        BmShe (x24432@1)was wrong

G (320003@1)              ASpeaking (x02220@1)of your mother
Bm (x24432@1)           A7This (x02020@1)is how it goes:
         G (320003@1)             AWhen (x02220@1)the world gets you down
     BmI (x24432@1)suppose
Gm (355333@1)        A7 (x02020@1)           BmYou (x24432@1)can fly away somewhere else
G (320003@1)         AOf (x02220@1)your own volition
Bm (x24432@1)        A7Of (x02020@1)your own accord
            G (320003@1)              AWhen (x02220@1)you're sad, when you're angry
            BmWhen (x24432@1)you're bored,
       Gm (355333@1)             A7 (x02020@1)         BmYou've (x24432@1)got to do what's best for yourself
G (320003@1)      A (x02220@1)         D (xx0232@1)          BmOoo (x24432@1)ooo ooooo ooo oo oo oo oo oo oo
G (320003@1)         ALa (x02220@1)da da da dum

[Verse 5]
I awoke; you were gone
There was nothing left to hold onto
I was blind, I was wrong
But I could find you if I want to
So I fly to the coast where
The boys you love most
Sing into your eyes

[Verse 6]
I was lost, now I'm found
I can see, but miss the blindness
Here's my cross; pound
It's your mouth, your kiss, your kindness
My stigmata's the regret for how
I could have let it all
Go so wrong

[Bridge 2]
          G (320003@1)         AI'm (x02220@1)going back to the place
            D (xx0232@1)           AWhere (x02220@1)they laughed in my face
        G (320003@1) AWhen (x02220@1)it all went
D (xx0232@1) BmAll (x24432@1)went
G (320003@1) A (x02220@1)  BmAll (x24432@1)went wrong
       G (320003@1) AYes (x02220@1)it all went -
       D (xx0232@1)          BmIsn't (x24432@1)this what you wanted, darling?
G (320003@1) AAll (x02220@1)went...
