way more expensive than anybody earns

F#m Amaj7

So I bought mine off the street

Bm F#

True love man it just can't be beat

A G/B C G/B F E

I felt so complete like all my wrong moves turned into right turns

Fmaj7 Am Esus* E riff

And each night I look up at a bright honey moon

Seems so built to last

Even after my heart in the past

I would go after it like a ghost to a house it once haunted

Day after day, I'd steal with my true love away

To some hide out left undisturbed we could do what we wanted

But i started to feel like a liar saying "I love you"

Dm C

She was happy in love and that means

Bb

There's no in between

E riff

I felt so alone

Dm C

I can't make a stand

Bb

And her helping hand

E riff

I have to get home

One day i got sick

She played me a nasty old trick

Said "I need cigarettes,"

Walked down the block, called a cab

Stayed gone for too long

My love had gotten too strong

Just to try to get back on my own

I had to go to rehab

Well alls I need a safe place to be

They said this is it

Well half a chance

They said that "Man, that's, that's all that you get"

(Intro chords)

Now I'm the king of the ward

Cause I'm good and I swallow my sword

Puke it out so the doctor can write his prescription

(Normal verse chords)

Tranquil as a dove

People that have lost their true love

They all seem to fit the same description

They feel cold, they feel old

Like a no one

Repeat Intro

Good Luck xo
