A Pound Of Flesh Chords

(ver. 1)
Radical Face

Tuned down a half step

C Am (x2)

my feet plow on from light to dawn 
my empty belly and my body aches ain't hard to take 
            G        C
next to the weight I carry in my chest 
a pound of flesh could never tip the scale that I've made 
                                G         F
I should have stayed, but I was never wise 
                   G                         Am
I hear your voices in the wind that cuts the night
      F                   G                               C
and I pray to whatever is listening things will be alright

oh, my boy, you're alive
your heart's still beating 
   C                         Am
so don't you mind, don't you mind 
we all drift sometimes

F                     G                        Am
I can still hear your feet as you ran from the house
            F            G 
but knowing you won't be back, 
        Am                    Em
doesn't mean that I will stop waiting 
F                         G                         Am                
you told me then: Hold me down or hold me up to the fire, 
              F            G
but don't you dare hold me back.

C Am [quick G] (x2)

F                G                           Am
I see your faces in the clouds that scar the night 
      F                  G                               C               
and I pray to whoever is listening things will be alright

     Am                      G
then today I wake up feeling easy, 
         C                        F
and find I'm on the more familiar roads 
        Am               G
I got a darkness wrapped inside me, 
           C                       F
but now it ain't so hard to let it go
   Am                           G
so keep a candle burning in the window, 
I'm almost home
