I haven't had a lot of time for guitar recently, but this is one of several tabs that various nice people have sent me.

The Story

Key of E

E  A  C#m   B  A

E                         G#m
In some sweet ways it’s simple,
sometimes that’s all I can need:
                         C#m              B
to trust someone else so I can get some sleep.
E                      G#m
all our heroes have deserted,
said we were nothing on our own,
                 C#m   B
now that’s all I am,

E                        A
O, can you tell me the story
                 C#m    B
of all of your Glory?
of your rising again?
      E                        A
cause I, I’m in love with the mystery
                C#m     B
of how our sad history
can turn out for good.

E                     G#m
and the bitter man is angry,
angry man just thinks he’s right,
                                 C#m              B
too right to see mercy when he’s standing in its light,
E                       G#m
we can shed tears over dying,
we can rage and we can fight,

but we cannot forget that
C#m             B              A
we were loved before we opened up our eyes,
such foolish pride.


G#m                        A
it’s a shame to build our homes
with bricks of fear and cynical stones,
             B            A
there is nothing left to run from,
           B               E
there is nothing left but love...
