Listen to All Torn Down

Try as I might, I cannot remember writing this song, nor can I remember what compelled me to write it. I think this one just fell out of my head.


All Torn Down

G  Em  Am  D  G  Em  Am  D

G                D
I know why the sky is blue
     C        G  Em  Am  D
But why is it so blue?
              G
Must know a thing or two
            D      C
'Bout what me and you
       G  Em  Am  D
been going through
         G
This guitar it has
          D
such a lonesome sound
         Em
With no other sound
     C
to drown it out
       G                  D            C        G Em Am D
When you're half a world away and I'm all torn down

I guess that what they say is true
I hope it's not too true
Absence makes my heart grow
Farther and farther
away from you
I shout across the rooftops
of this town
But it never seems to
bring you around
When you're half a world away and I'm all torn down

  D  C    Em
All torn down
                    C
And you're half a world away
   D  C    Em
All torn down

You never call me anyway
 D   C     Em
All torn down
I guess you've learned to
  Am
walk away
                 C           D
When there's nothing left to say

Am I expected to be strong
Or can I just seem strong
You've been away from here
so long I wonder if you're
coming home
This guitar it has such a
lonesome sound
But it never seems to bring you around
