VERSE 1

Gm C F

There was a time that I had nothing to explain

Eb Bb D

Oh, this mess I have made

 

INTRO 2x

 

VERSE 2

But then things got complicated

My innocence has all but faded

Oh, this mess I have made

 

INTRO 2x

 

CHORUS

F Eb

And I don't believe in God

Gm F

So I can't be saved

Eb

All alone as I've learned to be

Gm F

In this mess I have made

 

INTRO 2x

 

BRIDGE

Gm C F Eb Bb D Gm

Gm C F Eb Bb D

 

INTRO 2x

 

VERSE 3

All the untested virtue

The things I said I'd never do

Least of all, to you

 

VERSE 4

I know he's kind and true

I know that he is good to you

He'll never care for you more than I do

 

INTRO 2x

 

CHORUS

F Eb

But I don't believe in love

Gm F

So I can't be tamed

Eb

All alone, as I've learned to be

Gm F Eb

In this mess I have made

Cm7 D

The same mistake, over and over again

 

VERSE 5

There are rooms in this house

That I don't open any more

Dusty books and pictures on the floor

 

VERSE 6

But she will never see

She'll never see that part of me

I want to be for her

What I could never be for you

 

CHORUS

And I don't believe in God

So I can't be saved

All alone as I've learned to be

In this mess I have made

 

Cm7 D Gm
