VERSE

Em                       D7  D7add4 D7
You grew wings, on your heart
Cadd9                   Am7
But you let it out your ribcage
        Bm             D
and it flew into the dark

 Bm  D Em                  D7  D7add4 D7
Like a ghost, just like a ghost
 Cadd9                   Am7
And it flutters by my window

When I need my sleep the most

It's easy saying nothing when there's nothing to say
