Intro: Fm, E, Fm, D, A, Fm, A, Fm, E 

                         Fm 
They tried to keep their arms 'round us 
                    A  
They told us it was free 
                       Fm 
Their coffee and their crucifixions burned 
                      E    D                   
Put scars on both our knees 
                      Fm 
That wishful drinking summer 
                            A 
So sweet and sinful you and me 
                    Fm  
Rolling 'round your parents hardwood floor 
                        E            D 
Getting high out in the heat you and me 

         E                  Fm 
You were lonely and I had a song 
     D               A 
They told you we did wrong 
       D                  A                 E 
And we hung there on that cross in your old room 

Fm                          
   I lost faith you were trying to believe (x2) 
E    
   I lost faith you were trying to believe 
           Fm                       D      A  Fm A Fm E 
I play the memory in my head like a symphony 

                   Fm 
I tried to keep my arms 'round you 
                     A 
In the end it wasn't me 
             Fm 
The pharmacy receipt with shaky hands 
                     E    D 
Was all you'd really need 

                  Fm 
To scare you into praying 
                     A 
To put your heart in retreat 
                   Fm 
All that faith and fear came racing back 
                    E     D 
Brought you to your knees 

       E                Fm 
It was lonely but I got along 
D                    A 
Singing these ragged songs 
     D               A             E       
But lately I've been at a loss for words 

Fm 
  Lost faith but I'm trying to believe (x2) 

E    
   I lost faith but I'm trying to believe 
           Fm                       D        A   
I play the memory in my head like a symphony 

A          E   Fm D  
  Hey-heyeiee 
  
          E               Fm 
When it's lonely I'll get along 
D                    A              
Singing these ragged songs 
  D              A          E      E 
I pray you don't confuse my words - my words 

A 
  I lost faith but I'm trying to believe (x2) 

E    
   I lost faith but I'm trying to believe 
           Fm                       D           
I play the memory in my head like a symphony

I play the memory in my head like a  

      A                  Fm 
They tried to keep their arms 'round us

In the end it wasn't me
