GThis is how you make yourself vanish into nothing
C
And Cthis is how you make yourself worthy of the love that she
EmDsus4
EmGave to you back when you didn’t own a beautiful Dsus4thing
G
And Gthis is how you make yourself call your mother
C
And Cthis is how you make yourself closer to your brother
EmDsus4
ReEmmember him back when he was small enough to help you Dsus4sing
CEm
You thought God was an Carchitect, now you Emknow
CEm
He’s something like a Cpipe bomb ready to Emblow
CEmD
And everything you Cbuilt that’s all for Emshow goes up in Dflames

GThis is how you see yourself floating on the ceiling
C
And Cthis is how you help her when her heart stops beating
EmDsus4
What Emhappened to the part of you that noticed every changing Dsus4wind
G
And Gthis is how you talk to her when no one else is listening
C
And Cthis is how you help her when the muse goes missing
EmDsus4
You Emvanish so she can go drowning in a dream aDsus4gain
