This song is off of Act III: Life and Death by The Dear Hunter
Personally, this is my favorite song off the new album, and I find the album absolutely
After Act I came out, I didn't think they could top it. They topped it with Act II
and after that came out, I was almost positive they couldn't beat that. I was wrong.
It proved to be a little bit more difficult to figure this out than I anticipated, so if
are any corrections just let me know. But, I'm pretty sure that this is correct as it

F GmOh, you were born with the sun
F GmAnd oh, you will die with the moon
F GmAnd everything you thought you had you lost
F GmBut now you'd never lose what you don't have
Bb C F A BPrayers from above, never answered quite enough
Gm Bbm FNow the only one you have is you
F CmWith this cruel and bitter heart
BbYou were cold and in love
G#Left here naked in the sun
F CmRun scared from this cruel and bitter world
Bb G#This has only begun as the bombs are busting off
Bbm FmSmoke arose on azimuth glares
Bbm Fm EbBodies brewed and frigid winter air
Bbm Fm Eb BbmWhere families son's are robbed beneath their feet
Fm Eb Bbm Fm Eb
BbmAnd hearts concede "Ab Ovo," the angel sings "Ad astra"
Fm Eb BbmOur eyes to the sea, we thought that we had
Fm Eb FmA cause for suffering, and reason not to die alone
Fm BbmWith our feet beneath us, and our hands to the sky
C# B B B/CWe extend our limbs begging "why, oh, why?"
Bbm Fm Bbm Fm EbDon't turn away
G# C# Fm Eb C# C#/C
Bb C F A BbPrayers from above never answered quite enough
Gm C F A BbLooking up, never offered you too much
Gm BbmNow the only one you have is...
