    A5   A5            A5  A5 
For you,      I would tattoo me 
                                        E5 
With lines crossing into a hand and a heart that would never bleed 
           A5    A5      A5           A5 
With the twilight     and the horse drawn on my arm 
                         E5 
Standing for an addiction, pray we go unharmed. 
 

G5       G5              D5    D5 
  Here is my love and anger 
                        D5                D5 
You see now, these are my gods,   these are my scars 
      G5        G5              D5    D5 
Here is, here is my love and anger 
                                        D5   D5 
Well, these arms are burning, but they're open wide 
 
Some things, I hold too tightly 

Some things, I'll never, I'll never touch 

Oh, but I'm wearing down the stones in the river 

And you see all my life, I've painted with anger's brush 
 
Now, now could you lift me through my love and anger 

You see now, these are your gods, these are my scars 

Lift me through my love and anger 

Oh, well, my arms are burning, but they're open wide 
 
Oh, you precious kid 

I have a motion, and it's just for you 

I see a warrior, barefoot and dancing 

Oh with tears of pain and beauty, and all of this is true 
 
For you lift me through my love and anger 

You see now, these are my gods, these are your scars 

Lift me through my love and anger 

Oh, well, my arms are burning but they're open wide. 
 

A5              A5     A5         A5 
Pointing out the graveyards, I will be the reaper 
                      E5    E5 
If you will be the keeper of my heart 
A5           A5   A5           A5 
I will be the reaper if you will be the keeper 
                   E5    E5         A5 . 
  You are the keeper of this heart,   of my heart
