Verse 2:
           C#		G#
Here I am inside a hotel, choking on a million words I said.
A#m				          F#
Cigarettes have burned a hole, and dreams are drunk and penniless.
          C#			       G#
Here I am inside my father’s arms, all jagged bone and whiskey dry.

Whisper to me sweetly now, and tell me I will never die.

I am nineteen sixty-two, and I am ready for a fight.
	C#			    G#
People crying hallelujah, while the bullet leaves the gun.

People falling, falling, falling, and I don’t know where they’re falling from, are they.
