Mess

Capo I
F#m
There was a time when I
B
E
Had nothing to explain
D
F#m
C#
Oh, this mess I have made
F#m
But then things got complicated
B
E
My innocence has all but faded
D
F#m
C#
F#m
Oh, this mess that I have made
E
D
And I don't believe in god
F#m
E
So I can't be saved
E
D
All alone as I've learned to be
F#m
E
D
In this mess that I have made
All the untested virtue The things I said I'd never do Least of all to you I know he's kind and true I know that he is good to you He'll never care for you more than I do But I don't believe in love So I can't be changed All alone as I've learned to be In this mess
D
Bm
I have made the same mistakes
C#
F#m
Over and over again
There are some rooms in this house That I don't open anymore Dusty books and pictures on the floor That she will never see She'll never see that part of me I want to be for her What I could never be for you But I don't believe in god So I can't be saved All alone as I've learned to be In this mess that I have made
