C Ab
House full of roses, a letter on the stairs
C Ab
A tape full of messages for anyone who cares
Bb Ab
Collage of broken words, and stories full of tears,
Bb Ab
Remembering your life, ’cause we wish that you were here
C Ab
Nothing is harder than to wake up all alone,
C Ab
Realize it’s not OK, it’s the end of all you’ve known
Bb Ab
Time keeps passing by, but it seems I’m frozen still,
Bb Ab
Scars are left behind, but some too deep to feel

Cm
And some say this can’t be real,
Ab Bb
And I’ve lost my power to feel tonight
Eb G
We’re all just victims of a crime
Cm
When all’s gone and can’t be regained,
Ab Bb
We can’t seem to shelter the pain inside
Eb G Cm
We’re all just victims of a crime

C Ab
Some days you’ll find me in a place I like to go,
C Ab
Ask questions to myself ’bout the things I’ll never know
Bb Ab
What’s left to find? ‘Cause I need a little more
Bb Ab
I need a little time, can we even up the score?

Cm
Some say this can’t be real,
Ab Bb
And I’ve lost my power to feel tonight
Eb G
We’re all just victims of a crime
Cm
When all’s gone and can’t be regained,
Ab Bb
We can’t seem to shelter the pain inside
Eb G
We’re all just victims of a crime

(1st solo)

Cm Fm Eb
Nothing lasts forever, for all good things it’s true
G Cm
I’d rather trade it all, while somehow saving you
Fm Eb
It must have been the season that threw us out of line
G Eb
Once I stood so tall, now I’m searching for a sign

Bb Cm
So don’t need your salvation with promises unkind
Fm Eb
And all the speculation, save it for another time
Bb Cm Fm
‘Cause we all need a reason, a reason just to stay, and some just can’t be bothered
Cm
To stick around another day

(2nd solo)

Cm
Some say this can’t be real,
Ab Bb
And I’ve lost my power to feel tonight
Eb G
We’ve all been victims of a crime
Cm
When all is gone and can’t be regained,
Ab Bb
We can’t seem to shelter the pain inside
Eb G
We’ve all been victims of a crime

Eb G
Victims of a crime
Eb G
Living with this crime

Cm
I’m missing you X4
