 Black Ribbons- E Capo 1
Verse 1
E                                 C#m
Broke down at the end of the night 
Can't seem to get anything right 
So numb I can't feel things anymore 
Somehow could feel me letting go 
A              B              
I know there's so many things 
E                       C#m
That I need to do and I need to say 
A                  E
No matter how hard I try 
I can't get the words out right 

Man down, tie a ribbon around my soul 
C#m              A
I'm in the black and I'm out of control 
Like a ship that's lost in the night 
A                B
With no direction or guiding light 

Man down and I'm drowning in the pain 
Face down like a needle in the vein 
You're the only thing that keeps me sane 
But somehow I can't keep you out of my rain 
E                               C#m  A
I see you standing in the rain 

Verse 2
The lights in the city feel so bright 
All these colors I've got inside 
And in these streets I feel like a foreigner 
All I paint is myself in a corner 

Going on seems to hurt so much 
All the world seems so cold to the touch 
When I go to sleep I don't dream 
I just see a blank television screen 


Verse 3
Tie a ribbon for the child in me 
On every door and on every tree 
Make it black for the way that I feel 
'Cause black is the only color that's real 

Chorus- Starting at the Second Stanza ( Man Down and I'm drowning in the Pain)

Outro ( Verse 1)

Broke down at the end of the night 
Can't seem to get anything right
