Poets of the Fall - Roses

Very easy to play. Make it interesting with chord variants (and different 
Hand damping the last stroke in the verses, and just using the (x000xx)-strings in the prechorus.

Em C G D * 2

---Verse 1 (melody variant 1):
Em                C                   G                       D
I've walked the distance, I paid my dues and tried to have a go
             Em               C     G        D
at what I thought I knew was real, held no appeal
Em              C                      G                      D
I've been to places, I've seen the tidings, I bought a book of rules
            Em                C        G           D
for every coin that I could steal

---Verse 2 (melody variant 2):
     Em    C      G     D        Em C G               D
And so I came to gaze upon the stars, when they were yet unborn

     Em   C        G      D      Em C          G          D
And consequently, tear at my old scars, and the mask I had outworn

Em            C      G     D
So when I'm crying alone
Em               C        G  D
Yeah, when I'm cold as a dying stone

Em          C       G   D
Grow me a garden of roses
Em             C        G    D
Paint me the colors of sky and rain
Em            C              G   D
Teach me to speak with their voices
Em           C            G   D
Show me the way and I'll try again

---Instrumental (as intro)

---Verse 3 (melody variant 1):
I've heard the rumors, started fires, I sowed a sordid lot of plays for keeps for what I 
behold the demons that I freed
I've tried my best at wearing the hard hat, but healing doesn't seem to happen when you 
away the seed

---Verse 4 (melody variant 2):
And so I came across the medicine man, and he showed me what I'd forlorn
For if I'm stayed it happens by my own hand, and my own voice full of scorn



---Middle eight:
D   Em            D          C
Without you I'm nothing at all
D    Em            D        C       D
And life has the face of a morbid game
     Em                D     C
With you nothing is impossible
   D            Em       C    Em 
It all seems to fit the frame


---Chorus * 3 with fade on the last one
