Intro: C, ("...two, one-two-three-four") 
       C G x2

C                    G
The only girl I've ever loved
C                      G
Was born with roses in her eyes
C                        G
But then they buried her alive 
            D              C
One evening nineteen-forty-five
              D             G
With just her sister at her side 
         D                C
And only weeks before the guns 
             D             G
All came and rained on everyone 
            D             C
Now she's a little boy in Spain 
        D                  G
Playing pianos filled with flames
         D                C
On empty rings around the sun
            D            C      G
All sing to say my dream has come

                        C             G
        But now we must pick up every piece     
               C               G
        Of the life we used to love 
        Just to keep ourselves
           G                D   
        At least enough to carry on

(same as verse1)
And now we ride the circus wheel
With your dark brother wrapped in white
Says it was good to be alive
But now he rides a comet's flame 
And won't be coming back again
The Earth looks better from a star
That's right above from where you are 
He didn't mean to make you cry 
With sparks that ring and bullets fly 
On empty rings around your heart
The world just screams and falls apart 

    G      A     C    C      G 
And here's where your mother sleeps
    G    A  C   C               G             D
And here is the room where your brothers were born
G A  C     C      G
Indentions in the sheets 
            G A    C    C               G      D
Where their bodies once moved but don't move anymore
            C      G       C     G
And it's so sad to see the world agree 
            C                G                 D
That they'd rather see their faces filled with flies
G   A    C   C       G    C     
All when I'd want to keep white roses in their eyes
