I Never Told You What I Did For A Living

Bm
Stay out of the light
A
Or the photoghraph that I gave you
G
You can say a prayer if you need to
F#
Or just get in line and I’ll grieve you
Bm
Can I meet you alone
A
Another night and I’ll see you
G
Another night and I’ll be you
F#
Some other way to continue
F# (STRUM 3X)
To hide my face

Bm                   A
Another knife in my hands

A stain that never comes off the sheets
F#
Clean me off
Bm
I’m so dirty babe

Bm                        A                    G
The kind of dirty where the water never cleans off the clothes
F#
I keep a book of the names and those

Chorus

G     F#
Only go so far
Bm A  G
Till you bury them
Em       F#
So deep and down we go

Bm
Touched by angels though
A
I fall out of grace
G
I did it all so maybe
F#
I’d live this everyday

Repat pre chorus

It ain’t the money

And it sure as hell ain’t just for the fame

It’s for the bodies I claimed and those

And we’re all dance alone

To the tune of your death

And it’s better off this way
