lyrics

WHEN YOU ONCE WERE WILD

verse: D# F Bb Gm
chorus: Dm D# Bb
outro: Bb F Bb [Gm F]

verse chords:
D#: 66504x
F: 88706x
Bb: x1033x
Gm: 3x033x

tell me when you once were wild
did you keep it in? all that you pretend?
the evolution of your trial
you keep saving face, oh you can't erase
as sad as when you lost your child
well we all repent in the face of it
tell me when you once were wild
was it different?

[chorus]
i was always shy i can't hold a candle to
the one in your eyes they magnify it takes some time
'til you don't recognize & no surprise
it's always the blind leading the
blind-sided by: tell me when you once were wild

tell me how you reconciled
the truth that bends around your closest friends
your first & your last denial
did they feel the same? it's a crying shame
you've never walked a lonely mile
but it came & went & came back again
tell me when you once were wild
was it different?

[chorus]

[outro]
tell me when you once were wild...
