Capo 1

Intro
Am      F   C  G
            Hey!
Am      F   C  G
            Hey!
Am      F   C  G
            Hey!
Am - F - C - G

Verse 1
Am             F           C
I don't like walking around this old and empty house
Am               F             C
So hold my hand, I'll walk with you my dear
Am             F         C
The stairs creak as I sleep, it's keeping me awake
Am                   F            C
It's the house telling you to close your eyes
Am       F       C
Some days I can't even trust myself
Am                F         C
It's killing me to see you this way

Chorus
            Am        F
'Cause though the truth may vary
  C         G
This ship will carry
    Am    F      C
Our bodies safe to shore

Am      F   C  G
            Hey!
Am      F   C  G
            Hey!
Am      F   C  G
            Hey!
Am - F - C - G

Verse 2
        Am         F        C
There's an old voice in my head that's holding me back
Am             F             C
Tell her that I miss our little talks
Am              F      C
Soon it will be over and buried with our past
Am            F             C
We used to play outside when we were young (and full of life and full of love)
Am      F           C
Some days I don't know if I Am wrong or right
Am                F            C
Your mind is playing tricks on you my dear

Chorus
            Am        F
'Cause though the truth may vary
  C         G
This ship will carry
    Am    F      C    G
Our bodies safe to shore  Hey!
Am               F   C    G
Don't listen to a word I say. Hey!
Am            F     C    G
The screams all sound the same. Hey!
            Am        F
'Cause though the truth may vary
  C         G
This ship will carry
    Am    F      C    G
Our bodies safe to shore

Am - F - C - G
Am - F - C - G
Am - F - C - G
Am - F - C

Verse 3
Am
You're gone, gone, gone away. I watched you disappear
Am
All that's left is a ghost of you
Am
Now we're torn, torn, torn apart, there's nothing we can do.
Am
Just let me go, we'll meet again soon.
Am           F           C
Now wait, wait, wait for me. Please hang around
Am        F        C      G
I see you when I fall asleep. Hey!

Am               F   C    G

Am            F     C    G
The screams all sound the same. Hey!
            Am        F

This ship will carry
