Intro

Bm G Bm G D Asus4

Verse 1

BmGoodbye circus wheel GMay you rest along the sea DI have given you the fire of my youth Asus4And the triumph o're my enemies BmGoodbye fair weather home, and your faithless factories GI have given you the blood and the truth Dfrom the wounds they laid Asus4onto me BmAnd whatever they left, Awell, I kept it fGor my own heart

Chorus

DAnd the lonesome all understand Asus4With the choirs in my head BmAnd we were orphans before GWe were ever the sons of regret AMy baby DAnd on and on and on Asus4the alphabet boys carry on BmWe were orphans before GWe were ever the sons of these songs

Verse 2

BmAnd now my lights, they never go down Gthey waltz the moon and stars for me now DSo you can find some local libertine Asus4to take your daughters out on the town BmAnd I can feel it in my aging bones GHow the sound of the rain mixes up Dinto the fountains where I drank my Asus4hero's blood BmSo I left you to fAind my veryG own hat full of rain

Chorus

DAnd the lonesome all understand Asus4With the choirs in my head BmAnd we were orphans before GWe were ever the sons of regret AMy baby DAnd on and on and on Asus4the alphabet boys carry on BmWe were orphans before GWe were ever the sons of these songs

Bridge

FmNow I'm trying to keep it straight BmLearning all the streets and the alleyways GAnd learning where they lead DNow that I'm left alone here to drive FmBut it's so hard to stand on your own BmAgainst mirror of glass, hard and cold DBut the clothes I wore GJust don't fit my soul anymore DNo the clothes I wore GJust don't fit my soul anymore

Chorus

DAnd the lonesome all understand Asus4With the choirs in my head BmAnd we were orphans before GWe were ever the sons of regret AMy baby DAnd on and on and on Asus4the alphabet boys carry on BmWe were orphans before GWe were ever the sons of these songs

Outro

DWhen we were young BmWe were diamond Sinatras GLike something I saw in a dream DWe kept our secrets in rooms Bmlocked up tight like a tomb GWhere the ballerinas lay
