(Em)       (Am)    (Em)
the lights came on fast
(Em)    (Am) (Em)
lost in motorcrash
(Em) (Am) (Em)
gone in a flash unreal
    (Em)     (Am) (Em)
but you knew all along

(C)
you laugh the light
           (Em)
I sing the songs
(C)         (Dsus2)
to watch you numb

          Em   Am Em (with Fig1)
I saw you there
                 Em  Am Em (with Fig1)
you were on your way
          Em   Am Dsus2 (with Fig2)
you held the rain     and for the first time

Em     Am       Em (with Fig1)
heaven seemed insane
      Em     Am    Em (with Fig1)
cause heaven is to blame
    Em     Am  Em (with Fig1)
for taking you away

Em                       Am
do you know the way that I can?
Dsus2                            Em
do you know the way that I can't lose?
Em                          Am
do you know the things that I can?
Dsus2                             Em
do you know the things that I can't do?

Em            Am
where is your heart?
Dsus2                    Em
where is your heart gone to?
Em      Am
tear me apart
Dsus2              Em
tear me apart from you

C                             Em
you laugh the light I cry the wound
C            Dsus2
in gray afternoons

          Em   Am Em (with Fig1)
I saw you there
                 Em  Am Em (with Fig1)
you were on your way
              Em   Am Dsus2 (with Fig2)
you kissed me cold        and for the first time

Em     Am       Em (with Fig1)
heaven seemed insane
    Em     Am  Em  (with Fig1)
for taking you away
      Em     Am    Em (with Fig1)
cause heaven is to blame
    Em     Am  Em
for taking you

    Em     Am      Em (with Fig1)
the lights came to pass
     Em    Am   Em (with Fig1)
dead opera motorcrash
Em   Am   Em (with Fig1)
gone in a flash unreal
   Em      Am  Em (with Fig1)
in nitrous overcast

Em                       Am
do you know the way that I can?
Dsus2                            Em
do you know the way that I can't choose?
Em                          Am
do you know the things that I can?
Dsus2                             Em
do you know the things that I can't lose?

Em      Am
tear me apart
Dsus2              Em
tear me apart from you
Em            Am
where is your heart?
Dsus2                    Em
where has your heart run to?
