[Intro]
Amaj7 Dsus2 A Asus2
Amaj7 Dsus2 A Asus2

[Verse 1]
A7         Dsus2              A
  I wanna fall inside your ghost
     Asus2        A7      Dsus2    A  Asus2
And fill up every hole inside my mind
A7             Dsus2      A
  And I want everyone to know
     Asus2       A7      Dsus2
That I am half a soul divided
A Asus2

[Pre-Chorus]
Bm                                 C
Sometimes we will die and sometimes we will fly away
Bm                             F             E
Either way you're by my side until my dying days
    Bm                            E
And if I'm not there and I'm far away, I said

[Chorus]
A      C#m    A7
 "Don't be afraid."
       A       C#m     A7
I said, "Don't be afraid."
            Aadd4
We're going home.

[Verse 2]
A7 Dsus2 A Asus2
A7 Dsus2 A Asus2

A7          Dsus2            A
  I wanna strip myself of breath
  Asus2                A7        Dsus2    A   Asus2
A breathless beast of death I've made for you
A7           Dsus2               A
  A mortal writing piece of song
      Asus2          A7
Will help me carry on
      Dsus2       A Asus2
But these you heard

[Pre-Chorus]
Bm                                 C
Sometimes we will die and sometimes we will fly away
Bm                             F             E
Either way you're by my side until my dying days
    Bm                            E
And if I'm not there and I'm far away, I said

[Chorus]
A      C#m    A7
 "Don't be afraid."
       A       C#m     A7
I said, "Don't be afraid."
            Aadd4
We're going home.

[Verse 3]
A C#m A7
A C#m A7
        Okay
A
So the hearse ran out of gas
  C#m
A passenger person grabbed a map
        A7
And the driver inside it contrived a new route to save the past
   A
He checked his watch and grabbed a cab
  C#m
A beautifully plain taxi cab
  A7
A cab, had it cleared out back
A7
And two men started to unpack
A
Driving once again
C#m
But now this time there were three men
A7
And then I heard one of them say
A7
"I know the night will turn to grey
  A
I know the stars will start to fade
     C#m
When all the darkness fades away
   A7
We had to steal him from his fate
A7
So he could see another day"
A                      C#m
Then I cracked open my box
                             A7
Someone must have picked the lock
A7
A little light revealed the spot
                         A
Where my fingernails had fought
                      C#m
Then I pushed it open more,
                         A7
Pushing up against the door
A7
Then I sat up off the floor
A7
And found the breath I was searching for
A                              C#m
Then there were three men up front
                           A7
All I saw were backs of heads
                                                       A
And then I asked "am I alive and well or am I dreaming dead?"
                              C#m
And then one turned around to say,
                                  A7
"We're driving toward the morning sun
A7
Where all your blood is washed away
A7
And all you did will be undone. "

[Outro]
A C#m A7
        A       C#m     A7
I said, "Don't be afraid."
        A      C#m A7   
I said, "Don't be afraid."
