Fm 
And I kne

Fm 
her, so thoughtless and unkind
 
But a mons
C 
ter so c
Am 
ruel can’t b
Fm7 
e that hard to find
 
C 
So I started wearing warpaint and I gathered all my friends
 
For C
Am 
ecilia 
 
we’
C 
d be hunters ’till the end
 
Th
Am 
ough 
 
I
C 
guess I never understood exactly what it meant
 
Fm 
Oh I  
C 
know 
 
C
Am 
ecilia
Fm 
and her sister were just statues made of stone
 
But I
C 
still 
 
misse
Am 
 
he
Fm 
r and now her sister’s all alone
 
No th
C 
at just won’t do!
 
So let’s  
Am 
raid the vandal’s
Fm7 
homes
 
C 
So we ventured out at sunrise
 
With o
Am 
ur torches and our spears
 
A
C 
nd our shotguns and our fears
 
And ou
Am 
r carefully hidden tears
 
For Ce
C 
cilia, 
 
Cecilia
 
Fm 
Now
C 
I’m thinking of the moment
 
When  
Am 
we can l
Fm 
ook them in the eye
 
And mak
C 
e them sorry,  
Am 
’cause tonight they’
Fm 
re gonna die
 
Yeah, we’ll shoot t
C 
hem up dead!
 
Leave
Am 
their 
 
bo
Fm7 
dies where they lie
 
C 
So now we’re following the pieces of Cecilia to the door
 
Every  
Am 
shattered limb repeatedly r
C 
eminding us of what we’re searching for
 
Yes t
Am 
hey’re quite  
C 
aware of the cold hard fact that the city’s loss could be their gain
 
Fm 
They 
 
 
C 
are dreaming of, the feeling of!
 
A  
Am 
troph

Oh I
C 
‘m sorry if I hurt yo
Am 
u, 
 
 
Fm7 
you know I swear I meant no harm
 
Fm 
Baby
 
C 
So the tra
Am 
il, it keeps on turning as we wander through the streets
 
I keep  
Fm 
looking 
 
a
C 
t, the pieces of Cecilia
Fm 
at my feet
 
C 
But the strangest thing occurs to me
 
Oh I’d  
Am 
swear we  
C 
are returning to the center of the town!
 
Fm 
Yes 
 
we’re
C 
back here, where we started
 
Where  
Am 
Cecili
Fm 
a used to  
C 
stand, but her sister looks different
 
P
Am 
lease, 
 
t
Fm 
ell me boys, if you can?
 
Is that a smile on her  
C 
face?
 
Is that a  
Am 
hammer in her
Fm7 
hand?
