Intro - Em

Verse:

Em                                 C                              G
My friends say I've got to stay behind,'cause they've seen this kind,
                B7
Just like they all told me so.
Em                             C
I'll begin to piece it all in one, just another song,
                B7                                   Em
Just another pipe dream for the child who hung his head.

Chorus:

Em                C                  G
It was not my fault, it was not my day,
                  B7                         Em
But it made me strong, it made me wait for love.
                  C                     G
And I found so much, and I've paid my debts,
                 B7                        Em      B7
For the kindness I was shown to use as my own.

Verse:
Em                                  C                G
All my tears and comforts led the way, in a final play,
          B7                              Em
That had scenes of heroes making up for loss.
And his story cost, paper melted down.
Made of blankets for the child who ran away.

Chorus

Bridge:
Em                        C
Sip the same depressing fuel
                          G
Make and break your every rule.
                          B7
And if the laughter is all night,
                            Em
At least it's helping me to write.
                          C
When everything is overboard
                               G
The perfect crew you can't afford,
                            B7
There is no truth without unjust
                            Em
And in the music I could trust.

Chorus:

                 
It was not my fault, it was not my day,
Oh, but it made me strong, it made me wait for love.
And I found so much, and I've paid my debts,
For the kindness I was shown to use as my own.
