VERSE
Fmaj7Em7      Dm[Am7]
I've spent the days of my vanity
Fmaj7
I'm lost to heaven and I'm lost to earth
Em7             Dm                [Am7]
Didn't give you a minutes-not even moments
 
Fmaj7
All my life in a tower of foil
Em7   Dm     [Am7]
Shaded feelings: "I don't believe you!"
Fmaj7
When you were there before my eyes
Em7      Dm
No one planned it, took it for granted . . .
 
CHORUS 1
G Dm           [G]   Fmaj7 (riff)
I count the hours since you slipped away
G Dm           [G]   Fmaj7 (riff)
I count the hours that I lie awake
G Dm           [G]   Fmaj7 (riff)
I count the minutes and the seconds too
G Dm                      [G]
All I stole and I took from you   -But
Fmaj7 (riff)
Bonny don't live at home (repeat)
Em7                          Dm
Words don't hold you,
[Am7]      Fmaj7
Broken soldiers

CHORUS 2
G   Dm      [C]
All my silence and my strained respect
G   Dm      [C]
Missed chances and the same regrets
G   Dm      [C]
Kiss the thief and you save the rest
G       Dm            [C]
All my insights in retrospect-But
Fmaj7 (riff)
Bonny don't live at home (repeat)

Words don't hold you,
[Am7]      Fmaj7
Broken soldiers
