As they sat down for dinner they waited for you to get home

So don't be..........lieve everything that you read, in that diary of yours.

>>>


>>Repeat main theme twice and then continue repeating it throughout next verse


And this nervousness, it isn't all your fault

it's just these shaking hands won't do what I want them to.

And I've tried to guess what it is you thought about

>>>

>>Then....

  (Continue repeating main theme until).................. F
that act of contrition that rolled off our tongues as you wept,

............G...........
what are you crying for?


.....C.....Csus2/B...Am.................F...
Just dust..my........heart and you will find

...................G..............
there are no fingers printed there

.........C....Csus2/B...Am..............F..... 
just the un...touched...place that lies inside

..........G.................
of every lonely boy tonight.

>>Then.... repeat main theme x3

>>Then 4th time round play this...

.....C..........Csus2/B....Am..........................

And all this open air has caused me to choke

on your new-found hope for me.

>>Then
