"One... Two... ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR!"

F  C

Verse:
F                        C
The only girl I've ever loved
F                          C
Was born with roses in her eyes
F                         C
But then they buried her alive
            G                F
One evening Nine-teen-forty-five
              G              C
With just her sister at her side
         G                 F
And only weeks before the guns
             G              C
All came and rained on everyone
            G              F
Now she's a little boy in Spain
          G                 C
Playing pianos filled with flames
         G                F
On empty rings around the sun
            G                C
All sing to say my dream has come

Chorus:
                F             C
But now we must pick up every piece
        F               C
Of this life we used to love
        F                 C
Just to keep ourselves at least
                G
Enough to carry on!

Verse:
F                          C
And now we ride the circus wheel
F                                 C
With your dark brother wrapped in white
F                       C
Says it was good to be alive
           G               F
But now he rides a comet's flame
              G           C
And won't be coming back again
                G             F
The Earth looks better from a star
              G                   C
That's right above from where you are
           G               F
He didn't mean to make you cry
                 G                C
With sparks that ring and bullets fly
         G                 F
On empty rings around your heart
               G                 C
The world just screams and falls apart

Chorus:
                F             C
But now we must pick up every piece
       F               C
Of the life we used to love
        F                  C
Just to keep ourselves at least
                G
Enough to carry on!

Verse:
  C    D      E     F        C
And here's where your mother sleeps
  C   D  E      F               C             G
And here is the room where your brothers were born
C  D   E     F       C
In-den-tions in the sheets
            F            C              F       G
Where their bodies once moved but don't move anymore
            F      C       F      C
And it's so sad to see the world agree
            F                C                G
That they'd rather see their faces fill with flies
             F                  G               C
All when I'd want to keep white roses in their eyes

Outro: F C F C
