This is one of the saddest Ayreon songs ever... though this is very nice to play! 
especially if you got a vocalist or you are a vocalist... =)

Day six: Childhood (original)

Intro: Em  C  D  C  Em    Em  D  C  Em

Verse:
      Em         C            D
[Agony] You're alone in your bedroom
 C               Em      D             C    Em 
Hiding from the world, staring at the ceiling
    Em       C              D
[Me] Mother said 'he'll be home soon'
 C          Em            D               C     Em
But he never was, and I knew how she was feeling


Chorus:
     F#m           D                   F#m            D
[Fear] You always let him down; 'you'd never be like him'
 F#m          Bm      A               E
He'd always break you, never let you win
 F#m        D          F#m                D
No matter what you said, he'd always disagree
 F#m           Bm             A
You swore that one day you would be
         E                       Em  C  D  C   Em  D  C  Em
better than him...one day you'd win



Verse:
       Em              C          D
[Agony] You're hiding out in the cellar
 C           Em      D                C    Em
Aching and ashamed, covering up the bruises
    Em     C            D
[Me] And then he would tell her
        C                Em            D             C   Em
How I tripped and hurt my head, how I'd always be a loser


Chorus:

     F#m           D                   F#m            D
[Fear] You always let him down; 'you'd never be like him'
 F#m          Bm      A               E
He'd always break you, never let you win
 F#m        D          F#m                D
No matter what you said, he'd always disagree
 F#m           Bm             A
You swore that one day you would be
         E                       Em  
better than him...one day you'd win

(Instrumental section)
[ Tab from: http://www.guitaretab.com/a/ayreon/179032.html ]
Verse:
       Em            C            D
[Agony] You're all alone in your bedroom
 C                      Em         D          C        Em
How could you learn to care, when nobody cares for you
    Em       C            D
[Me] Mother said he'd be home soon
 C          Em             D              C     Em
But he never came, as for me...he didn't have to...
