This is one of the saddest Ayreon songs ever... though this is very nice to play! 
especially if you got a vocalist or you are a vocalist... =)
2 versions: Orginal and a radio version performed by Arjen Lucassen and Marjan Welman.

Day six: Childhood (original)

Intro: Em  C  Am  C   Em  D  C  Em

Verse:
      Em         C            Am
[Agony] You're alone in your bedroom
 C               Em      D             C    Em 
Hiding from the world, staring at the ceiling
    Em       C              D
[Me] Mother said 'he'll be home soon'
 C          Em            D               C     Em
But he never was, and I knew how she was feeling


Chorus:
     F#m           D                   F#m            D
[Fear] You always let him down; 'you'd never be like him'
 F#m          Bm      D               A
He'd always break you, never let you win
 F#m        D          F#m                D
No matter what you said, he'd always disagree
 F#m           Bm             D
You swore that one day you would be
         A                       Em  C  Am  C   Em  D  C  Em
better than him...one day you'd win



Verse:
       Em              C          Am
[Agony] You're hiding out in the cellar
 C           Em      D                C    Em
Aching and ashamed, covering up the bruises
    Em     C            D
[Me] And then he would tell her
        C                Em            D             C   Em
How I tripped and hurt my head, how I'd always be a loser


Chorus:

     F#m           D                   F#m            D
[Fear] You always let him down; 'you'd never be like him'
 F#m          Bm      D               A
He'd always break you, never let you win
 F#m        D          F#m                D
No matter what you said, he'd always disagree
 F#m           Bm             D
You swore that one day you would be
         A                       Em  
better than him...one day you'd win

(Instrumental section)

Verse:
       Em            C           Am
[Agony] You're all alone in your bedroom
 C                      Em         D          C        Em
How could you learn to care, when nobody cares for you
    Em       C            D
[Me] Mother said he'd be home soon
 C          Em             D              C     Em
But he never came, as for me...he didn't have to...

In the original key:
the chords for the intro/verse should be Em, C, Am, C; Em, D, C, Em.
the chorus should be F#m, Bm, F#m, D; F#m, Bm, D, A.

In the Radio Edit key that would make it:
intro/verse Am, F, Dm, F; Am, G, F, Am.
chorus Bm, Em, Bm, G; Bm, Em, G, D.

That sounds at least closer to me.
