John Moreland – Lies I Chose To Believe chords

G  Bm G  D x2

[Verse 1]
G BmWell I've gone and lost my faith in photographs
D G DCursed those martyrs that mark my past
G BmAnd I long for a day when we'll look back and laugh
D GAbout all this
G BmBut good luck finding your peace of mind
D A G DBeing born into these brutal times
G Bm DAnd these days I don't pray when I close my eyes
A GI just bite my tongue a bit harder
[Chorus 1]
D A GCause you were a lie I chose to believe
D A G DA lie I chose to believe
[Verse 2]
G BmLet's float these gutters up past heaven's gate
D G DGet me out of these damn desert states
G BmDid you hear the one about the hand of fate?
A GOh man, It'll make your heart stop
G BmDo you ever wish you could just back out?
D A G DTake your nickels and go cash out?
G BmForget the faces you've been crying about
D GAnd see where forgiveness takes you?
[Chorus 2]
D A Ga lie I chose to believe
D A G DYou were the lie I chose to believe
ASweet surrender like the break of dawn
G DWith the map laid out and the arrows drawn
ABut I think too much and wait too long
G DAnd I never tell but you know
D Bm AHow to lift me when I sink too low
[Verse 3]
G BmNow I've found me a reason to be a man
D G DOut on the shoulder with an outstretched hand
G BmJust a little solid ground to stand
D A GIs all I ever needed
G BmSo I'll shout it out from the heavens above
D G DHell ain't nothin' but the devil's drug
G BmWell love isn't the sickness, that I once thought it was
D A GWhen I was too surrounded to see
[Chorus 3]
D A Ga lie I chose to believe
D A Ga lie I chose to believe
D A Gyou were the lie I chose to believe
