[Verse 1]

   Am                       D/F#                     G                          C

Am                                    D/F#
   The lights were low enough, you guessed
                     G                                 C
   You swapped your conscience with your father's medication
Am                                   D/F#
   Limped from Rome to Lawrenceville
               G                                   C
   And on the way, you wrote out a self-made declaration


Am                                   D/F#
   And when you got to Pleasant Hill
                   G                            C
   You forced the traffic to erase your family demons
Am                                  D/F#
   And made a pact with you and god
                 G                              C
   If you don't move, I swear to you I'm gonna make ya


[Chorus 1]

   C                         Em                        G                              C

       C        Em
Do you need me?

Do you need me?

Do you need me?

Do you need me?


[Verse 2]

   Am                        D                         G                         C

Am                                D
   When the first officer arrived
                   G                                 C
   It happened to be the high school bully of your brother
Am                        D
   When you finally recognized
                  G                               C
   You felt some guilt that you had even let him touch you


Am                                    D
   Can you hear me, what's your name?
                   G                                C
   You could not speak just laid amazed at all the damage
Am                                D
   As the high school's letting out
            G                                        C
   All the kids are sayin' the same thing that they used to


[Chorus 2]

        C     Em
It's an alien
        G     C
It's an alien
        C     Em
It's an alien
        G     C
It's an alien


[Interlude]

Am  D  G  C
Am  D  G  C


[Verse 3]

Am                                 D
   The lights are low enough you guessed
             G                              C
   Hospital food, there's never enough medication
Am                              D
   The doctor asked about your ears
                  G                                 C
   You said your mom said you were made from a revelation


Am                        D
   The revelation never scares
                G                                   C
   If you came from your drunken dad and a pair of scissors
Am                                D
   Were you just finally letting go?
            G                                 C
   Did you mean to take out all those people with you?


[Chorus 3]

       C       Em
Didn't mean to
       G       C
Didn't mean to
       C       Em
Didn't mean to
       G       C
Didn't mean to

            C                          Em
Oh I didn't mean ------------------ to
            (Take the time to learn to let you go)
            G                  C
Oh I didn't mean ---------- to
              (Don't let me go)
            C                          Em
No I didn't mean ------------------ to
            (Take the time to learn to let you go)
            G                   C
Oh I didn't mean ----------- to
              (Never let you go)


[Outro]
Am  G
Am  G

Am                                                                 G
Time is here to take your last amendments and believe them on your own
Am                                                        G
Time is here to take you by the hand and leave you there alone
Am                                                              G
Time has come to take the last commandment and to carve it into stone
Am                                                        G
Time has come to take you by the hand and leave you here alone
