E                   Asus2 Asus2/G#
All of a sudden she disappears,
just yesterday she was here
somebody tell me if I am sleeping
someone should be with me here (cause I don't want to be alone)

Chorus:

Guitar 1 plays this riff twice

*Second time, end here      ^

B                         A            E
I wanna be the knife that cuts into my hand
and I wanna be scattered from here in this catapult
What a big baby    won't somebody save me please

B                     A
You won't find nobody home

Verse 2: (same as first)

all of these quiet battered voices
wait for the hunger to come
we got little revolvers and stupid choices
and no one to say when we're done
(Well I don't wanna bring you down)

I wanna be the light that burns out your eyes
'cause I know there's little things about me
that would sing in this silence of so much rejection
in every connection I make
I can't find nobody home
