Muted strumming during "One... Two... ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR!"

C, G

C GThe only girl I've ever loved
C GWas born with roses in her eyes
C GBut then they buried her alive
D COne evening Nine-teen-forty-five
D GWith just her sister at her side
D CAnd only weeks before the guns
D GAll came and rained on everyone
D CNow she's a little boy in Spain
D GPlaying pianos filled with flames
D COn empty rings around the sun
D GAll sing to say my dream has come
C GBut now we must pick up every piece
C GOf this life we used to love
C GJust to keep ourselves at least
DEnough to carry on!
C GAnd now we ride the circus wheel
C GWith your dark brother wrapped in white
C GSays it was good to be alive
D CBut now he rides a comet's flame
D GAnd won't be coming back again
D CThe Earth looks better from a star
D GThat's right above from where you are
D C He didn't mean to make you cry
D GWith sparks that ring and bullets fly
D COn empty rings around your heart
D GThe world just screams and falls apart
C GBut now we must pick up every piece
C GOf the life we used to love
C GJust to keep ourselves at least
DEnough to carry on!
G A B C GAnd here's where your mother sleeps
G A B C G DAnd here is the room where your brothers were born
G A B C GIn-den-tions in the sheets
C G C DWhere their bodies once moved but don't move anymore
C G C GAnd it's so sad to see the world agree
C G DThat they'd rather see their faces fill with flies
C D GAll when I'd want to keep white roses in their eyes
C G C G
