Intro : Dadd9 C C/B C/A Dadd9 C C/B (x2)

Verse :
G C
There were kings and queens and could have beens
Dadd9 C C/B C/A G C/G G
And pretenders to the throne
Em
I was a sweet contender then
Am D
Now my seeds they've all been sown
G Bm
I scorched the earth behind me
Am D Dsus2 D
I could have made a better plan
Cadd9 D G C/G G
Yeah if I had been a better man

Verse :
C
My promises were not to keep
Dadd9 C C/B C/A G C/G G
But thrown into the dirt
Em
There must be more I told myself
Am D
As I buttoned up my shirt
G Bm
Well I could paint myself in glory now
Am D Dsus2 D
And be proud of who I am
Cadd9 D G C/G G
Yeah if I had been a better man

Bridge :
G G/F# Em D/F# Cadd4
Stumbling through deep suburbs of my mind
G/B C/B Em7 Am Asus2 Am Asus4 Am
As secrets of silence unwind
Em D/F# Cadd4
I will sing you so long
G/B C/B Em7 Am Asus2 Am
Now only love
D Dsus4 D
Only love makes me strong

Verse :
G C
You charity I took as mine
Dadd9 C C/B C/A G C/G G
I claimed it as my own
C
I followed my ascending star
C/B C/A D/F#
To far away from home
G Bm
Well I was mesmerized by shiny things
Am D Dsus2 D
Now in frozen time I stand
Cadd9 D G C/G G
Yeah if I had been a better man

Verse :

C
Now I'm kneeling and I'm digging deep
Dadd9 C C/B C/A G C/G G
Deep into the ground
Em
I'm searching for my soul to keep
Am D
Like a burried treasure found
G Bm
In dreams I speak in ancient tongues
Am D Dsus2 D
Lost in wind and sand
Cadd9 D G C/G G
Yeah if only I had been a better man
