Bb Bb    
There's a picture on my kitchen wall
Dm Dm
Looks like Jesus and his friends involved
G G Cm Cm
There's a party getting started in the yard
Cm Cm Ebm Ebm Bb Bb
There's a couple getting steamy in the car
Dm Dm Gm Gm
Parked in the drive
Cm Cm Eb Eb F F
Was I too young to see this with my eyes?
------------------------------------------------------------
Bb Bb
By the pool last night, apparently
Dm Dm
The chemicals weren't mixed properly
G G Cm Cm
You hit your head and then forgot your name
Cm Cm Ebm Ebm Bb Bb Dm Dm Gm Gm
And then you woke up at the bottom by the drain
Cm Cm Eb Eb F F
And now your altitude and memory's a shame
------------------------------------------------------------
Bb Bb Cm Cm Dm Dm Cm Cm
What about taking this empty cup and filling it up
Bb Bb Cm Cm
With a little bit more of innocence
Dm Dm Cm Cm Bb Bb
I haven't had enough, it's probably because when you're young
D7 D7 Gm Gm Ab Ab
It's okay to be easily ignored
Eb Eb Eb Eb F F F# F#
I?d like to believe it was all about
F F Bb Bb
Love for a child
------------------------------------------------------------
Dm Dm
And when the house was left in shambles
G G Cm Cm
Who was there to handle all the broken bits of glass
Cm Cm Ebm Ebm Bb Bb
Was it mom who put my dad out on his ass
Dm Dm Gm Gm
Or the other way around
Cm Cm Eb Eb F F
Well I'm far too old to care about that now
------------------------------------------------------------
Bb Bb Cm Cm Dm Dm Cm Cm
What about taking this empty cup and filling it up
Bb Bb Cm Cm
With a little bit more of innocence
Dm Dm Cm Cm Bb Bb
I haven't had enough, it's probably because when you're young
D7 D7 Gm Gm Ab Ab
It's okay to be easily ignored
Eb Eb Eb Eb F F F# F#
I?d like to believe it was all about
F F Bb Bb
Love for a child
------------------------------------------------------------
Ab Ab Cm Cm Bb Bb Dm Dm
It's kinda nice to work the floor since the divorce
Ab Ab Cm Cm Bb Bb
I've been enjoying both my Christmases and my birthday cakes
Ab Ab Cm Cm Bb Bb Dm Dm
And taking drugs and making love at far too young an age
Ab Ab
And they never check to see my grades
F F F7 F7
What a fool I'd be to start complaining now
------------------------------------------------------------
Bb Bb Cm Cm Dm Dm Cm Cm
What about taking this empty cup and filling it up
Bb Bb Cm Cm
With a little bit more of innocence
Dm Dm Cm Cm Bb Bb
I haven't had enough, it's probably because when you're young
D7 D7 Gm Gm Ab Ab
It's okay to be easily ignored
Eb Eb Eb Eb F F F# F#
I?d like to believe it was all about
F F Bb Bb
Love for a child
Eb Eb F F F# F# F F Bb Bb
It was all about Love...
