CDid I mention we were dreaming

EAnd the lies we serve for dinner (for dinner)
FYeah for dinner (for dinner)
GThey're the tallest of the bunch

CDid you notice he was cold (Did you notice he was cold)
EWhen he finally lost control, of the ghost
AmAnd the epilogue I dreaded (and the epilogue I dreaded)
GNow seemed likely to console
CAnd I'm still not understanding (and I'm still not understanding)
AmThe things he did before he left
EAnd the one thing that will haunt me (will haunt me)
FIt will haunt me (it will haunt me)
G CRight before his final breath, he said

Am FYeah I'd given up on letting go
C ESo here we are, with nothing left here
FAnd now you've left me here
GAnd I was last to know
[Chorus 2]

Dm FSo I can't be your saint you see because I won't be hanging around
CAnd they broke him down (and they broke him down)
Gyeah they broke him down (and they broke him down)
Dm FSo I stood there and I held my breath cause I knew that it wouldn't be long
C'Til they broke me... ...down
