Ive Been Delivered

Song Author Wallflowers Submitted by: Anonymous
[E]    [B]    [A]    [E]    
[A]    [B]    [A]    [E]    
I c[E]ould break free from the [B]    
Wood of a c[A]offin
If I n[E]eed  
But nothin's h[A]ard as
Gettin' fr[B]ee from places
[A]I've already b[E]een  

[E]I've been waste-deep
In the [B] burnin' m[A]eadows
Of my m[E]ind  
In the [A]engine
In cold Dec[B]ember
Shootin' f[A]ire from the h[E]ose  

[E]Now turn off your l[G#m]ights    
'Cause I'm [C#m] not comin' h[E]ome  
'Til I'm del[A]ivered for the f[B]irst time [A]    [E]    

[E]I was first-born to a [B] parade
That f[A]ollows in r[E]ows  
Down a n[A]arrow cold black r[B]iver
Faceless sh[A]adows
Movin' sl[E]ow  

[E]I would move swift when
The [B] sounds of a tr[A]umpet would bl[E]ow  
I've been the p[A]uppet
I've been the str[B]ings
I know the v[A]acant face it br[E]ings

[E]Now the bells of curf[G#m]ew    
They may r[C#m]ing before I'm thr[E]ough
[E]But soon
[A]I'll be delivered [B] for the first t[A]ime [E]    

[E]You might keep clean
In the [B] back of an [A]angel motorc[E]ade  
It doesn't m[A]atter who walks [B]in  
You know, the j[A]oke is still the s[E]ame  
[E]You'll just wake up
Like a [B] disposable l[A]over
Decomp[E]osed
I've been g[A]one  
I've been rem[B]embered
I've been al[A]ive  
I've been the gh[E]ost  

[E]So now, if downtown expl[G#m]odes    
I'll still [C#m] be on this r[E]oad  
'Til I'm del[A]ivered for the f[B]irst time [A]    [E]    

[E]I have drawn blood
From the [B] neckline
When v[A]ampires were in f[E]ashion
You know I'd [A] even learn
To c[B]ut my throat
If I th[A]ought I could fit [E]in  

[E]'Cause I, I once heard
That you g[B]otta learn
How to bl[A]end in to this m[E]ess  
Where nothin's h[A]ard  
Nothin's pr[B]ecious
And nothin's sm[A]ooth or flawl[E]ess  

[E]Now, no more am[G#m]used    
Just [C#m] screaming [E]to be del[A]ivered
For the f[B]irst time [A]    [E]    

[E]Now I'm 10 miles in the [B] deep
And m[A]ighty blue s[E]ea  
Looking b[A]ack, towards a l[B]ong white beach
Burnin' [A]up into yellow fl[E]ames

[E]And I just wave back
Like a l[B]ittle boy up on a p[A]ony  
In a sh[E]ow  
'Cause I can't f[A]ix  
Something th[B]is complex
Any m[A]ore than I can build a r[E]ose  

[E]So just keep on letting [G#m]go    
'Cause I [C#m] must be cl[E]ose  
To being del[A]ivered for the f[B]irst time [A]    [E]    

[E]Now I'd rather bleed out
A l[B]ong stream from being l[A]onely
And feel bl[E]essed
Well than dr[A]own, laying f[B]ace down
In a p[A]uddle of resp[E]ect  
[E]I was once lost
In the c[B]orridors of the ar[A]ena  
In blindf[E]olds
I've been the b[A]ull  
I've been the wh[B]ip  
I just p[A]ulled down the matador [E]    

[E]So now, turn on your l[G#m]ights    
'Cause I'm [C#m] comin' h[E]ome  
I've been del[A]ivered for the f[B]irst time [A]    [E]    

[E]    [B]    [A]    [E]    
[A]    [B]    [A]    [E]    



I could break free from the
Wood of a coffin
If I need
But nothin's hard as
Gettin' free from places
I've already been

I've been waste-deep
In the burnin' meadows
Of my mind
In the engine
In cold December
Shootin' fire from the hose

Now turn off your lights
'Cause I'm not comin' home
'Til I'm delivered for the first time

I was first-born to a parade
That follows in rows
Down a narrow cold black river
Faceless shadows
Movin' slow

I would move swift when
The sounds of a trumpet would blow
I've been the puppet
I've been the strings
I know the vacant face it brings

Now the bells of curfew
They may ring before I'm through
But soon
I'll be delivered for the first time

You might keep clean
In the back of an angel motorcade
It doesn't matter who walks in
You know, the joke is still the same
You'll just wake up
Like a disposable lover
Decomposed
I've been gone
I've been remembered
I've been alive
I've been the ghost

So now, if downtown explodes
I'll still be on this road
'Til I'm delivered for the first time

I have drawn blood
From the neckline
When vampires were in fashion
You know I'd even learn
To cut my throat
If I thought I could fit in

'Cause I, I once heard
That you gotta learn
How to blend in to this mess
Where nothin's hard
Nothin's precious
And nothin's smooth or flawless

Now, no more amused
Just screaming to be delivered
For the first time

Now I'm 10 miles in the deep
And mighty blue sea
Looking back, towards a long white beach
Burnin' up into yellow flames

And I just wave back
Like a little boy up on a pony
In a show
'Cause I can't fix
Something this complex
Any more than I can build a rose

So just keep on letting go
'Cause I must be close
To being delivered for the first time

Now I'd rather bleed out
A long stream from being lonely
And feel blessed
Well than drown, laying face down
In a puddle of respect
I was once lost
In the corridors of the arena
In blindfolds
I've been the bull
I've been the whip
I just pulled down the matador

So now, turn on your lights
'Cause I'm comin' home
I've been delivered for the first time
