I Dont Like Who I Was Then

	  		
Intro: A ? C# - A ? B x2 

A                                    C#  
Tossed around like sea glass and you rounded out my edges. 
           A                           B 
I'll feel better when the headaches go away. 
        A                                 C#             
I got a scar across my forehead, turning purple in the cold 
         A       
From a night at Shore Memorial. 
       B         
I was 16 and afraid. 
         A                      B 
Turned away, like I'm working baby face 
             E9      C# A 
Out of Mid-South in the 80's. 
                           B 
I kept a blade hidden in my wrist tape. 


            E                               A 
I think I'm growing into someone you could trust. 
            E9                         C# 
I want to shoulder the weight until my back breaks, 
   B   B   A 
I want to run until my lungs give up. 
                            E9 
If I could manage not to fuck this up. 
            F#maj7 Y      B      
If I could manage not to fuck this up. 
        Y       F#maj7  A 
I think enough is enough. 


A                              C# 
Hidden in the tall grass in the naked light of day, 
               A 
I put my past-self in the ground. 
           B 
I've been dancing on the grave. 
            A 
I'm not the person that I was then, 
      C# 
I'm tearing him away. 
      A 
I was bitter. I was careless. 
      B 
I was 19 and afraid 

E                    A 
But you deserved more from me. 
E                              B 
I don't know why I would say those things. 
E                    A                     B  
But you deserved more from me and I'm trying every day. 


            E                               A 
I think I'm growing into someone you could trust. 
            E9                         C# 
I want to shoulder the weight until my back breaks, 
   B   B   A 
I want to run until my lungs give up. 
                            E9 
If I could manage not to fuck this up. 
            F#maj7 Y      B      
If I could manage not to fuck this up. 
        Y       F#maj7  A 
I think enough is enough. 


(Palm muted)           C# 
You left me walking in circles. 
                       A 
You were a shot in the dark. 
             B 
You were the baby teeth I buried. 
             A 
You were the sounds of distant cars. 

(End palm muted)           C# 
You left me walking in circles. 
                       A 
You were a shot in the dark. 
             B 
You were the banner that says "No One" 
       A 
That I tattooed across my heart. 

                       C# 
You left me walking in circles. 
                       A 
You were a shot in the dark. 
                       B 
You're scattered like ashes across every song that I write. 
                 A 
You're where the light pollution starts. 


            E                               A 
I think I'm growing into someone you could trust. 
            E9                         C# 
I want to shoulder the weight until my back breaks, 
   B   B   A 
I want to run until my lungs give up. 
                            E9 
If I could manage not to fuck this up. 
            F#maj7 Y      B      
If I could manage not to fuck this up. 
        Y       F#maj7  A 
I think enough is enough.
