verse 1: 
Gm 
  Give me mercy 
              Eb 
and I need it now 
I'm a bleed a 
              Bb 
little poison out 
I'm a cry a little 
      F 
river down and then 
I'm setting this 
               Gm 
whole thing on fire 
and I'm burning up 
              Eb 
the night she died  
and I'm putting every 
              Bb 
last picture aside  
I'm gonna say what 
          F 
I need to say in my 
very last letter to 
Gm 
you cuz you always 
        Eb 
made it clear 
said that you'd 
            Bb 
never be my pain 
So here's to you 
         F 
when you cried baby 
blues And just paused 
            Gm 
a cool to refrain  
And you said she 
         Eb 
was satisfied  
and this body's 
                Bb 
just waiting to die 
and I could listen 
sometimes but you 
F 
said its alright 
its just a whole 
            Gm  F Eb Gm Bb Eb Gm F Eb F   
lot harder alone 


Chorus: 
    Bb 
But I I wish you 
         F 
knew her now 
she's a better 
           Gm 
side of me now 
and I'm doing 
           Eb 
the best I can 
its what you wanted 
Bb 
  and I sing like you 
     F 
were there and I knew 
it was just how you 
       Gm 
would smile Mary 
                Eb 
you looked just like 
                 Eb 
it was 1930 that night 


verse 2: 
Gm 
  But hear the days 
they will eat you 
 Eb 
alive but I won't 
          Bb 
give in tonight 

You said its not 
         F 
worth my time 
and not to record them 
Bb/D 
    And not to settle 
                Eb 
just a piece of mind but I 
                    Bb 
can wait it out all night  
                        (hold) 
And we keep on breathing 
Gm 
  But Mary I found a 
Eb 
sound and this heart keeps 
           Bb 
pouring it out and the 

glory has come but its 
F 
probably gonna fade like 

the tattoo that hides 
     Gm 
this shame and the 
               Eb 
reasons always fade 

and the pain gets 
         Bb 
out some day and I'm 

saying my goodbyes 
F 
deeply wise cuz I don't 
            Gm F Eb 
know how to say 
                  Gm  Bb Eb 
Stay still in the pain  
                  Gm  F Eb F   
Stay still in the pain  


(Repeat Chorus) 


Interlude: Beat Changes 
Bb   x4, Bb F Eb   


Outro: 
       Bb       F 
If I recall the last 
          Gm 
thing you said to me 
          Bb      F 
before we broke up 
before it took you 
     Eb 
from me and you said 
  Bb       F 
I love you more than 
     Gm 
the stars in the sky 
          Bb      F 
but your aliveness 
     Eb 
just gets me tonight 
  Bb       F 
I love you more than 
     Gm 
the stars in the sky 
          Bb      F 
but your aliveness 
     Eb             Bb(hold) Bb(hold) 
just gets me tonight
