F#m D F#m D


F#m                        D                  F#m              D
You’d think that I would learn to hold my tongue once and for all.
F#m                D                          F#m                     D
But I’m growing old and still running off my mouth like I can’t get enough.
E              F#m           D
But save your mercy for the lost.
E               F#m            D
I don’t have time for these regrets.
    E                F#m            D
And don’t you dare remind me of the cost 
E               F#m             D
‘cause how the hell could I forget?

F#m D F#m D

F#m              D                    F#m                         D
And I’ve gotten good at pulling people in and pushing everyone away.
F#m             D                       F#m                               D
I’ve shouted words and said hateful things that no one decent should say.
E           F#m              D
But save forgiveness for the weak.
E            F#m            D
I’ve made it this far on my own.
E             F#m             D
And I’m not the man of your dreams
E                   F#m            D
but more like the sinner that you stone.

F#m E D E 


F#m          E                      D
God only knows the darker side of me.
                  E                       F#m
The pieces of my heart I don’t want you to see.
               E                      D
And heaven forbid you find out who I am
                       E                          F#m
‘cause if you knew the truth I’m terrified you’ll leave.
              E                  D
I’ve got to change or I’ll die alone.
               E                                 F#m
And I don’t deserve all the grace that you’ve displayed.
                      E                                D
I’ll nail you to the cross again ‘cause once was not enough.
                       E                   F#m
My sinful heart feels way too gone now to ever be saved.


D E C#sus2 F#m x4


E          F#m                D
So keep me close to where you are
E            F#m                D
‘cause God knows I’m prone to stray.
E            F#m             D
And write my name upon your heart
E                 F#m         D
and swear you’ll always keep me safe.

Not many people know these/this guy(s) I don't expect you will get many hits right now (but eventually)I don't hear an A chord at all in this song. AND I would tend to write the C#m rather than Dbm. (yeah essentially the same chord I know) but more people count up the frets when learning, therefore more new players would be inclined to know what that chord is. I actually prefer C#sus2 which I think fits better. I like the song though, so 4 stars from me, thank you I do like this contribution. I would want to tweak it a bit myself...still very good. Thanks
BTW, I would only put F#m D as the intro, like you had after the 1st verse. That is all I hear on the recording I have, maybe you have a different version I don't know. If so void this comment.

Thanks for the corrections and feedback!

I've now changed the A chords to F#m's as I agree that it's how they are in the original and I've also changed the Dbm to be a C#m. I didn't make the Dbm a C#sus2 as I don't think it sounds correct but we might be playing the chord differently?

The difference between the chords, C#m and C#sus2 is lifting off your middle finger off the b string. It is more about how you like to play it. The sound difference is very slight especially when strumming not very many would even notice - but because of the chord shape it is closer to the next chord shape to play. I am glad you made the changes, not for my sake but for other new players who would not be able to figure it out on their own. Now I can gave you 5 star rating.
