[Intro]
C#m G#/C E
E E A F#m
E E A F#m
D#m C#m B

[Verse]
  A                             
I cut open my palm and held it out to you.
B           C#m                       A
You did the same with your old army surplus blade.
B  A                                
My blood's never as warm as I'd expect it.
B               C#m                         A
You grabbed my hand adorned in wildflower warpaint.

         F#m D           A
You made yellows out of Marigolds.
          F#m    G#       A
You made purple out of Camellias.

             A
We charged headfirst into the woods with bows and arrows drawn.
B         A
Crudely fashioned--sticks and rubber bands and spray paint.
C#m A
We swore ourselves protectors from all the evil in the world.
B             A            C#m                A
You weren't born my brother but you're gonna die that way.

[Chorus]
E                                                                C#m B
You ran alone, in the falling snow, barefoot down White's Road.
E                                                              C#m   B
I watched your bruises grow,Strangely beautiful, Purple and yellow.
            A                                                                   E
You said, "Don't. Don't take me home. Don't take me home. Don't take me home."

[Verse]
      A 
Your father came in angry like a thunderstorm.
B             A                                                          E
He tossed you room from room and I watched color draining from your face.
A
Fault lines started forming underneath all of your floorboards.
B       A
We sat terrified, waiting on an earthquake.
   F#m         D         A
I watched you put on a brave face.
             F#m  G#m     A
I wanted so badly to be brave.

[Chorus]
E                                                                C#m B
You ran alone, in the falling snow, barefoot down White's Road.
E                                                              C#m   B
I watched your bruises grow,Strangely beautiful, Purple and yellow.
            A                                                                   E
You said, "Don't. Don't take me home. Don't take me home. Don't take me home."

[Bridge]
E         
Whoa oh oh
      B A  E
Whoa oh oh oh
E
Whoa oh oh
     B  A  E
Whoa oh oh oh

      A
They kicked you out to teach you what a man is.
B                   C#m           A
I don't think I'll ever know what that means.
              E                               A
They'll put a gun into your hand and call you weak until you're violent.
       B
Don't believe it.
         C#m                    A
They're hateful because they're empty.
          B          G#m      A
We got a chance to break the cycle.
                 C#m    G#/B    B
We could be the heroes that we always said we'd be.
A                                                          E
But don't take me home. Don't take me home. Don't take me...

A                                                       E
  Don't take me home. Don't take me home. Don't take me Home, home.
A                                                       E
 Don't take me home. Don't take me home. Don't take me Home, home.
A              E                   B           F#m  E    
 Don't take me home. Don't take me home. Don't take me..
