[Verse]
  D              F                  C             D
I have this new tattoo of which the story must be told
  D               F           C              D
About the night I almost overdosed ten years ago
  D              F             C               D
I woke up in the hospital with skin clammy and cold
    D             F              C                 D
And tubes in my urethra, down my throat, and up my nose
   D               F                C                D
My friends and the doctors were all shocked I wasn’t dead
      D             F                C                D
That’s when Katrina looked at me and this is what she said


[Chorus]
            D    F   C  D
Walk like thunder
            D    F   C  D
Walk like thunder
            D    F   C  D
Walk like thunder
            D    F   C  D
Walk like thunder


[Verse]
     D               F            C                D
So I walked to the rebel spot, I walked all over uptown
  D                 F        C             D
I walked right side up and I walked upside down
  D               F            C                 D
I walked to Chetzemoka with my eyes fixed on the ground yeah
   D               F                 C                 D
We walked all over Chetze Beach and kept the rocks we found

[Verse]
       D                 F                         C              D
Then I walked back to my parents’ house, I walked back to my old bed yeah
          D                    F            C              D
I walked back and I walked fast past all the voices in my head
  D               F            C               D
I walked with the sweats and I walked with the chills
        D               F       C                 D
I walked in New York City and I walked in Bedford Hills

[Verse]
         D           F              C                D
I walked into open mic nights and I walked into the rooms
         D               F         C              D
I walked feeling optimistic and I walked feeling doomed
  D                 F                C                D
I walked with some mama’s boys and I walked with some punks
          D                 F               C                  D
I walked dressed up like a rabbit, I walked dressed up like a skunk

[Verse]
  D                 F           C                 D
I walked with some givers and I walked with some leeches
        D            F              C              D
I walked all by myself and I walked with the Moldy Peaches
         D               F             C                D
I walked all over the world so I could sing my songs to you
       D                   F               C              D
And to your most desperate emails I said, “This is what I do.”

[Chorus]
            D    F   C  D
I Walk like thunder
            D    F   C  D
Walk like thunder
            D    F   C  D
Walk like thunder   
            D    F   C  D
Walk like thunder

[Verse]
       D            F         C        D
But at some point I got so comfortable
       D             F           C              D
That I didn’t even realize that I’d started to crawl
        D               F         C                D
Then my old friend Ammi died at 37 of a heart attack
       D                      F             C                   D
And I cracked cause people my age are not supposed to die like that
         D             F             C                 D
No no no no people my age are not supposed to die like that

[Verse]
           D         F         C            D
He was the old manager of the sidewalk café
     D                  F                C                  D
That place was a second home to me, it’s where I learned to play
         D        F          C              D
And his personality really helped create a space
        D                  F               C              D
Where a bunch of honest misfits could all gather and feel safe

[Verse]
         D            F              C              D
He was a cynic, a supporter, he was crazy, he was queer
             D                  F                C                     D
He’d either yell out, “Cut the bullshit” or he’d say, “I’m glad you’re here.”
           D               F              C            D
And it was always such an honour to have Ammi on my side
            D               F               C                  D
That’s why it hit me like a Mack truck when I found out that he died
         D                F             C              D
Yeah, it hit me like a Mack truck when I found that he died

[Verse]
            D       F              C             D
Then enter Alex, 33 years old and so sick with the cancer
    D                F          C                 D
And trapped inside a body that betrayed his real gender
   D               F                  C              D
We all hoped and prayed that he would go into remission
         D                  F                 C             D
At least long enough, just long enough to complete his transition
          D               F          C                   D
He said, “Kimya, did you know Eleventeen’s my favourite song?”
             D                 F                  C              D
I said, “Then get your ass on stage right now and you can sing along.”

[Verse]
           D            F           C              D
That’s the very first song I ever wrote all by myself
            D             F           C                  D
It’s about angels and recovery and friends and hope and health
       D                 F              C                  D
By the time we finished singing he was pissed off, he was scared
            D                 F            C              D
He said, “I lost my home, my lover, my insurance, and my hair.
    D          F               C              D
And now I’m about to lose you too, my new friend.”
   D                F                  C              D
I looked into those big blue eyes and said we’ll meet again
     D                  F                  C              D
Yeah I looked into his sad blue eyes and said we’ll meet again

[Verse]
               D               F              C              D
Then I got the phone call from Alyssa and she told me he was dying
       D                    F            C              D
By the time I got to his bedside we were both already flying
        D                  F                 C              D
We held hands and we sang songs, tried to be strong floated around
         D                   F                      C                  D
While I cursed the skin that he was in for all the ways it had let him down
        D                    F                      C                  D
Yeah I cursed the skin that he was in for all the ways it had let him down

[Verse]
           D               F           C              D
But at the same time I was taking my own body for granted
 D               F            C                   D
First I lost sight of my feet then they became unplanted
      D              F           C              D
And I never felt so stupid or so selfish or so sad yeah
   D              F               C              D
My body had been good to me and I treated it so bad yeah
  D               F               C              D
My body had been good to me and I treated it so bad

[Verse]
               D              F       C                  D
Then he said, “Mama, I don’t want my friends to watch me die.”
     D                            F           C              D
So I kissed his cheek, made him a shirt, and then I said goodbye
         D        F           C              D
And they cremated him in the shirt that I drew
        D               F                 C         D
Of the two of us that said they’re flying over you too
        D             F            C              D
Now the silver pink ponies have my homie in their crew
     D                F             C              D
So I tightened up my laces and knew what I had to do

[Outro]
          D       F    C  D
I started walking again
          D       F     C           D
I started walking again, I miss my friends
          D       F    C  D
I started walking again
          D       F     C           D
I started walking again, I miss my friends
          D       F    C  D
Walk like thunder
