Verse 1 Chords:
 G                  D/F#  Em/G      Cadd           G-C-Em
These hammers and strings      Been following me around 
        G           D/F#        Em/G           Cadd      G    C       Em
From a box filled garage To the dark punk rock clubs Of 1000 American towns
        G              D/F#
And my friend calls me up, 
           Em/G        D               G              C
he says, "how have you been?" I say, "dear I've been well, 
           Em/G    D          G             D/F#
Yeah the money's coming But I miss you like hell. 
        Em/G          D        G-C-Em           
I still hear you in this old piano, oh yeah." 

Verse 2 Chords:
           G         Cadd        Em/G         D
She says, "Andy, I know that we don't talk as much 
       G               Cadd              Em/G            D
But I still hear your ghost in these old      punk rock clubs
        G              Cadd          Em/G          D
Come on,   write me a song, give me something to trust 
      G           Cadd        Em/G            D             C
Just promise you won't let it be,   just the keys that you touch." 

Chorus:
                        G                              D
Give me something to believe in, a breath from the breathing
                    Em                              C
So write it down, I don't think that I'll close my eyes 
                         G                                D
'Cause lately I'm not dreaming, so what's the point in sleeping?
                   Em                         C
It's just that at night, I've got nowhere to hide
                  G-C-G           G-C-Em
So I write you a lullaby     A lullaby 

Verse 3 Chords: Same as Verse 1
These hammers and strings Been following me around 
Behind passenger vans Through the snow, dirt, and sands 
Of 1000 American towns.
And my friend calls me up With her heart heavy still She says, 
"Andy, the doctors Prescribed me the pills. But I know I'm not crazy. 
I just lost my will. So why am I, why am I taking them still?" 

Chorus:
I need something to believe in, a breath from the breathing 
So write it down, I don't think that I'll close my eyes 
'Cause lately I'm not dreaming, so what's the point in sleeping? 
It's just that at night, I've got nowhere to hide 

Post-Chorus:
         Em            D       C
To the sleepless, this is my reply: 
                       G   Em  C  D       G      Em  C  D 
I will write you a lullaby,           A lullaby. 

Final Chorus:
                      G          
Give me something to believe in, 
                      Em              D            C
So write it down, I don't think that I'll close my eyes 
                       G                                C
'Cause lately I'm not dreaming, so what's the point in sleeping? 
                  Em                         C
It's just that at night, I've got nowhere to hide 
         Em            D       C
To the speepless, this is my reply:
                    G    C Em D        G    C Em D… (repeat to fade out)
I'll write you a lullaby          A lullaby,        a lullaby… etc
