[Verse 1]
(D)        A
I was born old
       Bm           F#m
I grew up but I got younger
       Bm       F#m
I was torn, and cold
        Bm                    A
Now I’m fine but there’s this hunger
      G               A
And a thirst for the days
       D           F#m
Before I went and razed it all
G   A   D
To the ground

[Verse 2]
Got a job, found God
I did everything they told me
Spoiled the child, spared the rod
And found someone new to hold me
Though the love’s not as real
As what I used to feel when it
All went wrong

D           A
La da da da da da,
Bm          F#m
La da da da da da
G        D         A        D
La da da da da da, La da da da

[Verse 3]
She was young, not scared - she was everything I wanted
I was dumb, unprepared - had no idea that I was haunted
By the ghosts of a life the night I hid the knives
And it all went wrong

[Verse 4]
It’s an old wound, but it opened in a new way
In a rest room in a rest stop on the thruway
She calls up her parents
And admits with embarrassment
She was wrong

G                A
Speaking of your mother
Bm             A7
This is how it goes:
         G               A
When the world gets you down
I suppose
Gm          A7             Bm
You can fly away somewhere else
G           A
Of your own volition
Bm          A7
Of your own accord
            G                A
When you’re sad, when you’re angry
When you’re bored,
       Gm               A7           Bm
You’ve got to do what’s best for yourself
G        A           D            Bm
Ooo ooo ooooo ooo oo oo oo oo oo oo
G           A
La da da da dum

[Verse 5]
I awoke; you were gone
There was nothing left to hold onto
I was blind, I was wrong
But I could find you if I want to
So I fly to the coast where
The boys you love most
Sing into your eyes

[Verse 6]
I was lost, now I’m found
I can see, but miss the blindness
Here’s my cross; pound
It’s your mouth, your kiss, your kindness
My stigmata’s the regret for how
I could have let it all
Go so wrong

[Bridge 2]
          G           A
I’m going back to the place
            D             A
Where they laughed in my face
        G   A
When it all went
D   Bm
All went
G   A    Bm
All went wrong
       G   A
Yes it all went -
       D            Bm
Isn’t this what you wanted, darling?
G   A
All went...
