[Verse 1]
C                          Fmaj7/C
And lover, where’d you lose your patience 
               C
I know you had your patience 
            Fmaj7/C
And I was just a kid 

[Verse 2]
C                               Fmaj7/C
And clueless, you never stop to wonder 
                         C
If lightning strikes the thunder 
                   Fmaj7/C
Or if it’s just coincidence 

[Chorus 1]
C
Every time your father beat you down 

You told him, "Dad it wont be long," 
            Fmaj7/C
And as your tiny body slept that night, I had my lamplight burning strong

[Verse 3]
C
And hated 
                  Fmaj7/C                           C
Your bedroom is a dark place, but you've broken all the doorways 
                     Fmaj7/C
And now you're stuck inside 

[Verse 4]
C
But hopeful
              Fmaj7/C                                       C
Your memory's still around though, you can see it from your window 
                Fmaj7/C
As it starts to pass you by 

[Pre-Chorus]
Am
Now I'm in your car, you hold your apples in your arms 
         Fmaj7/C
You're a friend I used to know, but you still lean against my walls 
        Am
Tell me beauty I won't bluff, I set my mind to worthless stuff 
          Fmaj7/C
But I was hoping you'd have the decadence, the appetite of love 
           C                    Fmaj7/C
But that's alright, yeah that’s alright 

[Chorus 2]
C
Every time your father beat you down 

You told him, "Dad it wont be long," 
            Fmaj7/C
And as your tiny body slept that night, I had my lamplight burning strong 

             C
And when you came to me, and said, "We gotta leave," 

And so we took your parents' car 
            Fmaj7/C
And as your tiny body slept that night, I had my lamplight burning strong 

            C
And when we got away, but in a couple days 

We crashed in Arkansas 
            Fmaj7/C
And as your tiny body slept that night, I had my lamplight burning strong 

             C
And when the cop cars came and took you away 

I knew I had to write this song 
            Fmaj7/C
And as your tiny body slept that night, I had my lamplight burning strong

C Fmaj7/C x3
