Intro: Bm, G, Bm, G, D Asus4 (x2)

Verse 1: 
Bm
Goodbye circus wheel
G
May you rest along the sea 
D
I have given you the fire of my youth 
Asus4
And the triumph o're my enemies
Bm
Goodbye fair weather home, and your faithless factories
G
I have given you the blood and the truth
D                         Asus4
from the wounds they laid onto me
Bm                      A                G
And whatever they left, well, I kept it for my own heart

Chorus: 
D
And the lonesome all understand
Asus4
With the choirs in my head
Bm
And we were orphans before
G
We were ever the sons of regret
A
My baby
D
And on and on and on
Asus4
the alphabet boys carry on
Bm 
We were orphans before
G
We were ever the sons of these songs

Verse 2:
Bm
And now my lights, they never go down
G
they waltz the moon and stars for me now
D
So you can find some local libertine
Asus4 
to take your daughters out on the town
Bm
And I can feel it in my aging bones
G
How the sound of the rain mixes up
D                                   Asus4
into the fountains where I drank my hero's blood
Bm                A          G
So I left you to find my very own hat full of rain

Chorus: 
D
And the lonesome all understand
Asus4
With the choirs in my head
Bm
And we were orphans before
G
We were ever the sons of regret
A
My baby
D
And on and on and on
Asus4
the alphabet boys carry on
Bm 
We were orphans before
G
We were ever the sons of these songs

Bridge:
F#m 
Now I'm trying to keep it straight
Bm
Learning all the streets and the alleyways
G
And learning where they lead
D
Now that I'm left alone here to drive
F#m
But it's so hard to stand on your own
Bm 
Against mirror of glass, hard and cold
D
But the clothes I wore
G
Just don't fit my soul anymore
D
No the clothes I wore
G
Just don't fit my soul anymore

Chorus: 
D
And the lonesome all understand
Asus4
With the choirs in my head
Bm
And we were orphans before
G
We were ever the sons of regret
A
My baby
D
And on and on and on
Asus4
the alphabet boys carry on
Bm 
We were orphans before
G
We were ever the sons of these songs

Outro:
D	
When we were young
Bm
We were diamond Sinatras
G
Like something I saw in a dream
D
We kept our secrets in rooms
Bm
locked up tight like a tomb
G
Where the ballerinas lay
