                 D
She's never alone,
              A                                     B
because she's scared of what she might say to herself 
       A                               D   F#    G    A        B
Always drinking in the backroom of the bar where everyone turns in
              A
A half-hearted grin 
                   D
She won't be afraid
           A                             B
as long as that prescription keeps going through
            A                              D   F#    G       A  Riff 1
And all the happy pills make her look like cardboard cut out of someone
                 Riff 2  
I use to learn from
              D ,D/C#     B
But on the phone,   she's telling everyone, 
                 G(10th fret)
that there was a blue sky,
         F#(9th fret) E(7th fret)
she left behind 
             D                  D/C#
And there's a place that no one knows about,
         Riff 3
Away from integrity
             B                D                     Riff 4(Bridge)
she writes a book in her head that nobody will read 
                D
Whatever you say,
             A                                B
please don't talk about the time when she was young
      A                               
Apparently that was a different person
D   F# G    A        Riff 1                   Riff 2
and so long ago it's strange to me, there's no history
D                 D/C#       B 
But there's a past and she's telling everyone 
             G(10th fret)
It must be a garden, 
             F#(9th fret) E(7th fret)
that wouldn't grow 
              D                    D/C#
With roots of shame, too sensitive to blame 
                 Riff 3
to herself as we watch he drown, 
                 B               D                 play interlude
I can't save the queen without a kingdom or a crown

D                                A 
Somewhere in this lonely game of sympathy 
           B             A             G
there is a selfish dream That makes me sick 
D                                      A
Standing on the high wire while you're on the ground 
               B    /   C#    /       D     Riff 5
To you what is dangerous  is safe and sound...

You let me down
