[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
