x2

---VERSE 1---


E7               A/E             E7 (E9sus4) A
Sheets of empty canvas, untouched sheets of clay

     E7              A/E              E7 (E9sus4) A
Were laid spread out before me as her body once did

E7       A/E                      E7       A
All five horizons revolved around her soul as the earth to the sun

E7             A/E            ( Asus4) E7     (E9sus4) E7
Now the air I tasted and breathed has taken a turn


---CHORUS 1--- [KEY G]

C                            (E9sus4) Em
Hmmmm, and all I taught her was everything
       C                  (E9sus4) Em
Hmmmm, How quick the sun can drop away

           D
And now my bitter hands,
      C
Cradle broken glass 
            Em
Of what was everything
        D
Oh, the pictures had
              C
Have all been washed in black
              E
Tattooed everything


---VERSE 2--- [KEY A]

E          A/E              E         (E9sus4) A
I  take a  walk outside I'm surrounded by some kids at play
    E                   A/E     Asus4  A/E  E
Oh, I can feel their laughter          so,  why do I sear


---CHORUS 2--- [KEY G]

    C                                        Em   
Hmm and twisted thoughts that spin 'round my head, I'm spinning, oh
              C                 (E9sus4) Em
I'm spinning, How quick the sun can drop away
           D            Dsus4
And now my bitter hands
       C               Csus4
Cradle broken glass
                Em
Of what was everything
        D
All the pictures have
         C
All been washed in black
             Em
Tattooed everything
        D
All the love gone bad
          C
Turned my world to black
             D 
Tattooed all I see,
         C
All that I am,
         Em    D  C
All I'll be       Yeah

Em      D       C
Uh huh  Uh huh

---ENDING---

  Em
I know someday you'll have a beautiful life,
  D                       C
I know you'll be a star in somebody else's sky
    Em        D            C
But why, why, why can't it be,
                 Em     A      C
Why can't it be mine


Em    D    C (till end)

Em    A    C (can mix it up)

Em    D    C  ...  Em
