1. I don't like walking around this old and empty house,

         Am                        F                          C

    so hold my hand, I'll walk with you my dear

            Am              F                      C

    The stairs creak as I sleep, it's keeping me awake,

                Am                 F                         C

    it's the house telling you to close your eyes.

      Am           F                 - C

    Some days I can't even         trust myself,

          Am                F                  C

    it's killing me to see you this way.

 

                              Am            F           - C                G

'Cause though the truth may vary this       ship will carry

       Am       F            C

our bodies safe to shore.

2. There's an old voice in my head that's        holding me back,

            Am                  F                  C

    well, tell her that I miss our little talks.

      Am            F                       C

    Soon it will all be over and buried with our past,

         Am                      F                              C

    we used to play outside when we were young.

 

    (and full of life and full of love).

     Am            F                      C

    Some days I feel like I’m wrong when I am right,

             Am                    F                           C

    your mind is playing tricks on you, my dear.

 

                                  Am            F           - C                G

         Am              F       C      G

Don't listen to a word I say. Hey!

            Am            F             C         G

The screams all sound the same. Hey!

                   Am            F          - C                G

3. You're gone, gone, gone away, I watched you disappear,

    Am                                   Fm

    all that's left is a ghost of you.

                     Am                                         Fm

    Now we're torn, torn, torn apart, there's nothing we can do,

          Am                                         Fm

    just let me go, we'll meet again soon.

            Am              F                 C

    Now wait, wait, wait for me, please hang around,

      Am                     F        C      G

    I see you when I fall asleep. Hey!
