[Intro]
 
C Am
 
 
[Verse 1]
Am              Amadd9   C
I have wondered what was done to you
            F      C        G6      Am
To give you such a taste of flesh
                  Amadd9  C
I guess for years I just carried on
       F                C            G6        Am
Didn't feel much of a choice to suppress
 
 
[Verse 2]
Am               Amadd9     C
I hope your memory is less vivid than mine
       F              C            G6
And is free from that awful maple light
Am                       Amadd9    C
I have to say I wish you had just done it in the dark
       F                C        G6
So the pictures didn't burn so bright
 
 
[Chorus]
    Am   G6        C
But I forgive you now
   F             C         G6         F
Release you from all the blame I know how
    Am      G6        C
And I'll forgive you now
       F          C          G6           F
As if saying the words will help me know how
                     C      Am
Please help me know how
 
 
[Verse 3]
Am         Amadd9   C
I'm afraid it will take a time
          F                   C                      G6   Am
I make my case to the Shahanshah as I bring him his cup
                   Amadd9  C
And I tell him the best I can what I need
             F              C           G6   Am
To build the walls of my Jerusalem back up
 
 
[Verse 4]
Am                        Amadd9        C
And I have reckoned with what you have taken from me
      F            C          G6
And I killed that liar in my head
Am             Amadd9     C
I buried him beneath the maple tree
 F                 C                 G6
There's no joy in dancing with the dead
 
 
[Chorus]
    Am   G6        C
But I forgive you now
   F             C         G6         F
Release you from all the blame I know how
    Am      G6        C
And I'll forgive you now
       F          C          G6           F
As if saying the words will help me know how
 
 
[Outro]
 G    F    C
How, how
