[Verse]
E               A                 E              A
Sheets of empty canvas, untouched sheets of clay
     E                 A              E
Were laid spread out before me as her body once did


[Verse]
E           A              E
All five horizons revolved around her soul
A
as the earth to the sun
E             A                       E
Now the air I tasted and breathed has taken a turn


[Pre-chorus]
C                                    Em
Hmmmm, and all I taught her was everything
C                                  Em
Hmmmm, I know she gave me all that she wore


[Chorus]
           D
And now my bitter hands,
      C
Chafe beneath clouds
            Em
Of what was everything
        D
Oh, the pictures
              C
Have all been washed in black
               Em
Tattooed everything


[Verse]
E        A                  E               A
I take a walk outside I'm surrounded by some kids at play
    E                A            E
Oh, I can feel their laughter so, why do I sear


[Pre-chorus]
C                                               Em
Hmmmm, and twisted thoughts that spin 'round my head,

I'm spinning, oh
  C                                       Em
I'm spinning, How quick the sun can drop away


[Chorus]
           D
And now my bitter hands
       C
Cradle broken glass
                Em
Of what was everything
        D
All the pictures have
         C
All been washed in black
             Em
Tattooed everything
        D
All the love gone bad
          C
Turned my world to black
                 D
And tattooed all I see,
         C
All that I am,
         Em
All I'll be


[Bridge]
D  C     Em      D       C
   Yeah  Uh huh  Uh huh
  Em
I know someday you'll have a beautiful life,
  D                          C
I know you'll be a star in somebody elses sky
    Em        D            C
But why, why, why can't it be,
C                 Em     D      C
Why can't it be mine
