Intro : G#  B  E  C#7  B  G#  C#m

Verse 1 : 
G#                         B
No one knows you quite the way that I do
E                     C#7
No one owes me, not especially you
B                                      G#
So find a river and deliver my remains to it soon
         C#m
This I request of you

Verse 2 : 
G#                    B
Said a person that I knew from my sleep
E                      C#7
"Savage, I'm free, but I ain't cheap"
B                                              G#
The thing you ache with has a function, either beat it or bleed
             C#m
What could I say to them

Verse 3 : 
G#                    B
Man on fire, and he's heading for Throop
E                        C#7
Watched him burning as I sat on my stoop
B                                       G#
A couple seconds felt like hours 'til I finally moved
            C#m
To beat the flames from him

Verse 4 : 
G#                  B
Most religion is as far from faith
E                      C#7
As the sun is from the shadows it shapes
B                                    G#
Well I can hardly say for certain if I'm trapped or escaped
           C#m
When I'm away from you

Verse 5 : 
G#                        B
When the summer draws the bugs in the house
E                             C#7
And an acquaintance takes the form of a spouse
B                                         G#
I need you wildly, as the bluejay needs a tune it can sing
         C#m
Into the afternoon

Instrumental : G#  B  F#  E
               G#  B  Eb  C#
               G#  B  F#  E
               G#  B  Eb  C#
               G#

Interlude : 
D                     A
Like my mother she reminds
D                      A
With the ashes on her head
E                       D                              A
Dancing drunkly to the radio as she welcomes back the dead

G#  B  E  C#7  B  G#  C#m

Verse 6 : 
G#                   B
Twenty hours and I'm twelve in the hole
E                               C#7
With thoughts of lightning as a beautiful doll
B                                           G#
Across the island they are floating slow in luminous bulbs
         C#m
Inviting me to cross

Verse 7 : 
G#                       B
Started drinking to meet strangers and folks
E                         C#7
Who'd listen to me, who'd nod when I spoke
B                                       G#
But these days when I'm thirsty I don't mind staying home
         C#m
Drinking away the blues

Verse 8 : 
G#                      B
Started smoking to keep up with my friends
E                                     C#7
I learned to love the feeling when I'm breathing it in
B                                          G#
But I'm a lonely lighthouse shining by the sea on a cliff
            C#m
Dragging in solitude

Instrumental : G#  B  F#  E
               G#  B  Eb  C#
               G#  B  F#  E

               E  D  A
               A
               E  D  A (x3)

Outro : 
D                         A
Of all the pieces I've combined
D                          A
Still the cruelest mixture yet
E                      D
Is the softness of a thawing dawn
                       A
And the hardness of regret
