[Verse]
G                                        Em
The world says you’re ready when you’re eighteen
D                         G
And I was no exception to the rule.
G                       C
Eager to try my hand and prove to them that I was a man
D                           G
Not an ounce of fear in anything I do.
C                 D
Yeah, I thought I knew it all
[Chorus]
G                    C
Turns out I didn’t have a clue
C            D          G
Before these walls were blue.
[Verse 2]
G                                  C
I remember sitting there in that old rocker
D                           G
3am trying to get you back asleep
G            C
When I found myself laughing at you laughing
D                                      G
Wishing the hands of time that I could cheat.
C                   D
Yeah, I thought that I knew love
[Chorus]
G                    C
Turns out I didn’t have a clue
C            D    C              D          G
Before these walls, before these walls were blue.
[Bridge]
Em                 D
I believe in Heaven, I believe in magic,
C                                 Am 
I believe in a life besides these walls
[Verse 3]
Now I believe
G                              C
In dinosaurs, in toys, trains and baseball
D                             G
What you’re gonna be for Halloween
G                       C
I'll be the villain and you will be the hero
D                                   G
And save the day the way that you saved me.
C                D
Yeah, I thought I knew myself,
[Chorus]
G                    C
Turns out I didn’t have a clue
C            D    C              D
Before these walls, before these walls
C            D          G
Before these walls were blue.
