Intro: C chordC, G chordG, C chordC, G chordG

C chordC G chordG
The only girl I've ever loved

C chordC G chordG
Was born with roses in her eyes

C chordC G chordG
But then they buried her alive

D chordD C chordC
One evening nineteen forty-five

D chordD G chordG
With just her sister at her side

D chordD C chordC
And only weeks before the guns

D chordD G chordG
All came and rained on everyone

D chordD C chordC
Now she's a little boy in Spain

D chordD G chordG
Playing pianos filled with flames

D chordD C chordC
On empty rings around the sun

D chordD C chordC G chordG
All sing to say my dream has come



C chordC G chordG
But now we must pack up every piece

C chordC G chordG
Of the life we used to love

C chordC
Just to keep ourselves

G chordG D chordD D7 chordD7
At least enough to carry on



C chordC G chordG
And now we ride the circus wheel

C chordC G chordG
With your dark brother wrapped in white

C chordC G chordG
Says it was good to be alive

D chordD C chordC
But now he rides a comet's flame

D chordD G chordG
And won't be coming back again

D chordD C chordC
The Earth looks better from a star

D chordD G chordG
That's right above from where you are

D chordD C chordC
He didn't mean to make you cry

D chordD G chordG
With sparks that ring and bullets fly

D chordD C chordC
On empty rings around your heart

D chordD C chordC G chordG
The world just screams and falls apart



C chordC G chordG
But now we must pack up every piece

C chordC G chordG
Of the life we used to love

C chordC
Just to keep ourselves

G chordG D chordD D7 chordD7
At least enough to carry on



G chordG Am chordAm G chordG C chordC G chordG
And here's where your mother sleeps

G chordG Am chordAm G chordG C chordC G chordG D chordD
And here is the room where your brothers were born

G chordG Am chordAm G chordG C chordC G chordG
In-den-tions in the sheets

G chordG Am chordAm G chordG C chordC G chordG D chordD
Where their bo-dies once moved but don't move anymore

C chordC G chordG C chordC G chordG
And it's so sad to see the world agree

C chordC G chordG D chordD
That they'd rather see their faces filled with flies

G chordG Am chordAm G chordG G chordG D chordD G chordG
Oh and I'd want to keep white roses in their eyes


C chordC, G chordG, C chordC, D chordD, D7 chordD7, C chordC, G chordG
