 Em G C Em 
After the scripture, We started to pray
               G C Em 
Holdin' our hands up, Waitin' for change
           G C Em 
I hardly knew you, You knew me the same
                G C Em 
So we built a shelter, While we turned the weak away


 Em ,  G ,  C ,  Em  x2


 Em G C Em 
Your mother beside me, Rattlin' her brain
               G C Em 
Makin' an offering, Pacing the pain
             G C Em 
We took a picture, Placed it in frame
             G C Em 
We built a fire, And we turned the cold away


        C G D Em 
And I know it's not what you desire
       C G D Em 
This pain can't crumble, Won't soon retire

 D/F# D C G 
Everybody there was trying to hide some great desire
 D/F# D C G 
Put away the positives and let that good girl die
 D/F# D C G 
Everybody's prayers were turned into a gradual sigh
       C G D 
So I paced around the backyard for a while


 Em G C Em 
That was a bee sting, A speck in my eye
            G C Em 
A casual movement, A thief in the night
                G C Em 
Now I can't forget you, Sword in my side
              G C Em 
Candle that burned me, Deliver me light


         C G D Em 
And I know it's not what you desire
        C G D Em 
This pain can't crumble, Won't soon retire


 Em ,  G ,  C ,  Em  x2
