Intro: | D | G | (4 times)

D G           D              G                  D         G
I think, It's getting to the point where I can be myself again
     D               G                  D             G
It's getting to the point where we have almost made amends
D G               Bm             Bb                A7
I think, it's the getting to the point that is the hardest part
        G            D                 G                   D
If you call, I will answer, and if you fall, I'll pick you up
           G             D                     A7                   D  G  D  G
And if you court this disaster, I'll point you home, I'll point you home

D   G       D           G                    D               G
You think I only think about you when we're both in the same room
    D             G            D               G
I'm only here to witness the remains of her exhume
D   G           Bm             Bb                A7
You think we're here to play a game of who loves more than who
        G            D                 G                   D
If you call, I will answer, and if you fall, I'll pick you up
           G             Em
And if you court this disaster

Instrumental: | Em | Em | Em | Em |
              | G | D | F | G |

D   G          D             G                 D            G
You think it's only fair to do what's best for you and you alone
     D             G             D                  G
It's only fair to do the same to me when you're not home
D G          Bm                Bb                A7
I think it's time to make this something that is more than only fair
           G            D             G                   D
So if you call, I will answer, if you fall, I'll pick you up
       G             D                     A7
If you court this disaster, I'll point you home

        G                  Gm            D                Bm
And I'm warning you, don't ever do those crazy, messed up things that you do
       G          Gm                D               Bm
If you ever do, I promise you, I'll be the first to crucify you
        G                           Gm
Now it's time to prove that you've come back here
     D        G
To rebuild, rebuild
  D        G
Rebuild, rebuild (repeat 11 times)
