G| All of the joy that I had known for all my life Em| F#m| G| Bm| Was stripped away from me the minute that you died. Bm| To have you in my life was all I ever wanted, Bm| But now without you I'm a soul forever haunted. G| Can't help but feel that I had taken you for granted; Em| F#m| G| Bm| No way in Hell that I can ever comprehend this. Bm I wasn't dreaming when they told me you were gone, Bm I was wide awake and feeling that they had to be wrong. G How could you leave me when you swore that you would stay? Em C Now I'm trapped inside a nightmare every single f'ing day. Bm It's like a movie, but there's not a happy ending; Bm Every scene fades black, and there's no pretending. G This little fairy tale doesn't seem to end well, Em C There's no knight in shining armor who will wake me from the spell. Em Bm I know you didn't plan this; Em Bm| Bm| Bm| Bm| You tried to do what's right. Em Bm But in the middle of this madness, C Cm Gm F# I'm the one (I'm the one, I'm the one) you left to win this fight. CHORUS Rest- one bar Bm Red like roses G Em G A Fills my head with dreams and finds me Bm Always closer G Em To the emptiness and sadness G A (Bm) That has come to take the place of you. VERSE 2 Bm| I know you're broken down by anger and by sadness; Bm| You feel I left you in a world that's full of madness. G| Wish I could talk to you, if only for a minute; Em| F#m| G| Bm| Make you understand the reasons why I did it. Bm| I wanna tell you that you're all that ever mattered; Bm| Want you to know that, for eternity, I'm shattered. G| I tried so hard just to protect you, but I failed to, Em| F#m| G| Bm| And in a prison of abandonment I've jailed you. Bm I never planned that I would leave you there alone, Bm I was sure that I would see you when I made it back home. G And all the times I swore that it would be okay; Em C Now I'm nothing but a liar, and you're thrown into the fray. Bm This bedtime story ends with misery ever after, Bm The pages are torn, and there's no final chapter. G I didn't have a choice, I did what I had to do; Em C I made a sacrifice, but forced a bigger sacrifice on you. Em Bm I know you've lived a nightmare; Em Bm| Bm| Bm| Bm| I caused you so much pain. Em Bm But, baby, please don't do what I did; C Cm Gm F# I don't want (I don't want, I don't want) you to waste your life in vain. CHORUS 2 Bm Red like roses G Em G A Fills my head with dreams and finds me Bm Always closer G Em To the emptiness and sadness G A (Em) That has come to take the place of you. BRIDGE: Em Bm You're not the only one who needed me; I thought you understood. Em Bm You were the one I needed, and you left me as I always feared you would Em Bm Would I change it if I could? G Em It doesn't matter how, G F#m The petals scatter now. G Em Every nightmare just discloses G F#m It's your blood that's red like roses, G Em And no matter what I do, G A (Bm) Nothing ever takes the place of you. (Verse chords under Solo) CHORUS Bm Red like roses. G Em G A Fills my head with dreams and finds me. Bm Always closer, G Em To the emptiness and sadness, G A| That has come to take the place...... G| ...of... Bm| ...you.
