C chordC, G chordG, F chordF, Fm chordFm
Am chordAm, G chordG

no guitar during this part
I was kidnapped real young by the sweet taste of love
Built a fondness for things that just weren't good enough
I cradled the crow always shooed off the dove
Which tagged me a naïve son


C chordC
So the fortunate kids yeah they left on their lights
G chordG F chordF
And they stuck up their noses and started some fights
C chordC
Their parents all cackled at dirt on my hands
F chordF Fm chordFm
While my father was slaving my mother explained it
Am chordAm (wait a little bit then strum G chordG real fast)
Sometimes that's just how it is


C chordC
So my sister went kissing a maple-skinned boy
G chordG F chordF
Finally held up her fists said I'm done being coy
C chordC G chordG
And the neighbourhood boys started buzzing with joy
F chordF Fm chordFm
We finally had front-page news
C chordC
Although it was sad I couldn't help but laugh
G chordG F chordF
Such ridiculous hate in the hot summer sweat
C chordC G chordG
I laid on my back let the punk record spin
F chordF Fm chordFm
The stomping guitar it was shooting out stars
Am chordAm G chordG F chordF Fm chordFm
It all went to my heart yeah some rainbows in the dark


C chordC F chordF
So I called up danger my friends and some strangers
C chordC F chordF
They stumbled and wavered one called me his saviour
C chordC F chordF
They slipped me the blood in the whole of the vial
G chordG F chordF
But I didn't feel them change


Am G ---don't miss this little interlude here--


C chordC
Then I met a man with a fist for a hand
G chordG F chordF
Held me flat on my back taught me how to give in
C chordC G chordG
Some phrases were shot pretty roses got tossed
F chordF Fm chordFm
The gift of a fat-lipped grin
C chordC
Now they're drilling my teeth while I'm soiling sheets
G chordG F chordF
With my lover she's counting the diamonds on rings
C chordC G chordG
And even when truth doesn't help with the sting
F chordF Fm chordFm
Out of no numbers some harsh looking colour
Am chordAm G chordG
You pull them out feel they're changed
F chordF Fm chordFm
No need for a thousand cranes


C chordC F chordF
So I thank the city the lights that it's spinning
C chordC F chordF
The friends that I have and the shoes we re not shining
C chordC F chordF
The drunk horn s so violent all spinning out sounds
G --- it sounds like there is no chord change here, but I am not sure ---
But the colour s so vibrant the colour s so loud
C chordC F chordF
The newly-born crying realizing what life is
C chordC F chordF
In the eyes of my grandpa the right people dying
C chordC F chordF
The see-saw of love its rickety bounce
G -- again with no chord change?? --
The feeling of coming the feeling of going
D chordD G chordG
The mother the child the tame and the wild
D chordD G chordG
The sleeping in minor the gold leaf the tire
D chordD G chordG
The crooked the straight all the hip and the fake
F chordF Fm chordFm
Oh I'm finally feeling the stitching of beautiful seams
C chordC F chordF G chordG
Sometimes you just can't hold back the river
Sometimes you just can't hold back the river
Sometimes you just can't hold back the river
Sometimes you just can't hold back the river
F chordF G chordG F chordF G chordG F chordF G chordG
Hold back the river hold back the river hold back the river

end with
F chordF, Fm chordFm, Am chordAm
