DBy the second Averse, dear friends My Bmhead will burst, my Glife will end So, I'd Alike to start this one off by saying D"Live and love" DI was young and at Ahome in bed And I was Bmhanging on the words Gsome poem said In A'31 I was Dimpressionable I was Emupsettable

Bridge

I tried to Bmmake my breathing sGtop, my heart beat sAlow So, when my Bmmom and John came inG, I would be coAld

Verse 2

DFrom a bridge on Washington AAvenue, The Bmyear of 19G72 Broke myA bones and skull, and it wasD memorable It was Dhalf a second in; I was Ahalfway down- Do you Bmthink I wanted to Gturn back around and Ateach a class Where you Dkiss the ass that I've exEmposed to you?

Bridge

And at the Bmfuneral, the GUniversiAty Cried at three Bmpoems they'd Gpresent in place of aA broken me

Verse 3

DI was breaking in a Acase of suds At the BmBrass Rail, a Gfall-down drunk with his Atongue torn out and his Dballs removed And I Dknew that my last Alines were gone, while Bmstupidly I Glingered on, Oh, but Awise men know when it's Dtime to go And so EmI should, too

And so I Bmfly into the Gbrightest winter Asun Of this Bmfrozen town. I'm Gstripped down to move Aon, my friends: I'm Emgone F G A Pre-chorus and Chorus: Well, DI hear my faGther Dfall G And DI hear my moGther Dcall G And DI hear the oGthers Dall whisper "Come Ahome" I'm sorry to Dgo G D DI loved you allG so But Dthis is the worst tripA I've ever been Don G D So, Dhoist up the John GB. Dsail G DSee how the main Gsail Dsets G I'm Dfull in my heart and Gmy Dhead and I wanna go Ahome With a book in each Dhand G D DIn the way I had Gplanned Well, Dthis is the worst tripA I've ever been Don So, Dhoist up the John GB. Dsail G DSee how the main Gsail Dsets G I'm Dfull in my heart and Gmy Dhead and I wanna go Ahome With a book in each Dhand G D DIn the way I had Gplanned I Dfeel so broke up,A I wanna go Dhome.
