Intro: C C>let ring   G G>let ring   Am Am>let ring   F F>let ring

Verse:
C C
I thought I saw a man brought to life
Em Em F F
He was warm, he came around, like he was dignified
F F
He showed me what it was to cry

C C
Well you couldn't be that man I adored
Em Em F F
You don't seem to know, don't seem to care, what your heart is for
F F
But I don't know him anymore


Pre-Chorus:
Am Am
There's nothing where he used to lie
G G
My conversation has run dry
Em Em
Well that's what's going on
G G C C
Nothing's fine I'm torn


Chorus:
C C G G Am Am
I'm all out of faith, this is how I feel
F F C C
I'm cold and I am shamed, lying naked on the floor
G G Am Am
Illusion never changed, into something real
F F C C
I'm wide awake and I can see, the perfect sky is torn
G G Am Am F F
You're a little late, I'm already torn


2nd verse:
C C
So I guess the fortune teller's right
Em Em F F
I should have seen just what was there, and not some holy light
F F
But you crawl beneath my veins and now


Pre-Chorus:
Am Am
I don't care, I have no luck
G G
I don't miss it all that much
Em Em
There's just so many things
G G C C
That I can't touch I'm torn


Chorus:
C C G G Am Am
I'm all out of faith, this is how I feel
F F C C
I'm cold and I am shamed, lying naked on the floor
G G Am Am
Illusion never changed, into something real
F F C C
I'm wide awake and I can see, the perfect sky is torn
G G Am Am F F
You're a little late, I'm already torn
Am Am F F
Torn...


Bridge:
Am Am C C G G
Ooooooooh... Hoo ooooh ooooh


Pre-Chorus:
Am Am
There's nothing where he used to lie
G G
My inspiration has run dry
Em Em
That's what's going on
G G C C
Nothing's right I'm torn


Chorus:
C C G G Am Am
I'm all out of faith, this is how I feel
F F C C
I'm cold and I am shamed, lying naked on the floor
G G Am Am
Illusion never changed, into something real
F F C C
I'm wide awake and I can see, the perfect sky is torn
C C G G Am Am
I'm all out of faith, this is how I feel
F F C C
I'm cold and I am shamed, bound and broken on the floor
G G Am Am F F
You're a little late, I'm already torn
Am Am G G
Torn... (Torn!)


Outré:
C C - G G - Am Am - F F {x4 until fadeout}
