VERSE 1
G/B              -                     -
Unwanted, but breathing in the next room, sleeping
(D/F#)  Em7      -                     - 
 My  mother, sheís crying and my fatherís been drinking
(D/F#)    G/B    -                     -
In our run-down apartment where the roof is still leaking
(D/F#)     Em7   -                     -
Heís cursing and cussing itís just the whiskey talking


CHORUS

(Em7)       Cadd9        -     (Cadd9)   Em7       -
And Iíve got lots of memories like this one
(Em7)   Cadd9            -      (Cadd9)   Em7      -
Of empty days and nights spent tired and lonesome
(Em7)      A2/Dsus       -
When I think backÖ to all of it
   A2/Dsus    -          -             -                 -
Itís all too much oh itís all too much when youíre just a little kid

My little brother, just a newborn baby I
(D/F#)   Em7   -               - 
In the image of my mother, says heís a blessing
(D/F#)  G/B    -               -
But not to my father, oh how he hates him
(D/F#)    Em7  -               -
ďAn undeserving mistake,Ē He calls him a burden

Of empty days and nights spent tired and lonesome

When I think backÖ to all of it

Itís all too much oh itís all too much when youíre just a little kid



BRIDGE
Cadd9     A2/Dsus  Em7     Cadd9        A2/Dsus    Em7    Cadd9
And when I wake up in the morning it all feels like a bad dream
        A2/Dsus  Em7      Cadd9
One that follows you and haunts you endlessly

Yeah, haunts me endlessly


VERSE 3
G/B                -               -
     Well, broken and beaten from the abuse and the cheating
(D/F#)   Em7       -               -
The addiction, and the lying and the promise of leaving
(D/F#)     G/B     -               -
While my old man was a bastard, I admired and loved him
(D/F#)   Em7       -               -
And us two kids, we were born in to a family, not a fortune, oh
