Am
Weep for yourself, my man,
      Am(add 6)   Am            C
You'll never be what is in your heart
Am
Weep Little Lion Man,
      Am(add 6)        Am              C
You're not as brave as you were at the start
G6sus4
Rate yourself and rake yourself,
F                             C
Take all the courage you have left
G6sus4                   F
Wasted on fixing all the problems
                          C
That you made in your own head


CHORUS: (let chords ring this time through)

           Am       F         C
But it was not your fault but mine
           Am         F      C
And it was your heart on the line
         Am        F       C
I really fucked it up this time
             G
Didn't I, my dear?

Didn't I, my...

Am
Tremble for yourself, my man,
     Am(add 6)         Am            C
You know that you have seen this all before
Am
Tremble Little Lion Man,
       Am(add 6)    Am          C
You'll never settle any of your scores
     G6sus4
Your grace is wasted in your face,
     F                               C
Your boldness stands alone among the wreck
    G6sus4                         F                               C
Now learn from your mother or else spend your days biting your own neck



CHORUS:

           Am       F         C
But it was not your fault but mine
           Am         F      C
And it was your heart on the line
         Am        F       C
I really fucked it up this time
             G
Didn't I, my dear?
           Am       F         C
But it was not your fault but mine
           Am         F      C
And it was your heart on the line
         Am        F       C
I really fucked it up this time
             G
Didn't I, my dear?

Didn't I, my dear?

(NO CHORD)
Didn't I, my dear?
             C (ring out)
Didn't I, my dear.
