[Bridge]
GFor fourteen years my body betrayed me
DThe one I cannot live without must live on without me
Em CUnread books on dusty shelves tell a story of their own
GI know in time we all find peace of mind
DWhen optionless we do what we must do
EmBut that was barely good enough and you
CYou stole my heart and then you stole my tools
CYou stole my tools, you stole my tools
GFor fourteen years my body betrayed me
DThe one I cannot live without must live on without me
Em CUnread books on dusty shelves tell a story of their own
GI know in time we all find peace of mind
DWhen optionless we do what we must do
EmBut that was barely good enough and you
CYou stole my heart and then you stole my tools
C GYou stole my tools, you stole my tools
[Outro] G Em (x3) C D
