         Em
All the tiredness that you've held in waiting,

in abeyance, 

now comes rushing in.

Floods the bloodstream, burrows in the brainstem, 

             G
grinds down bone-deep,

                   Am                  Em
the exhaustion's stored from way back when.

All the tiredness you've postponed forever,

buried treasure,

the price you pay for simply keeping your hand in.

 Am    Amsus2   Am  Amsus2   Am         Em
Hold the       darkness     back for a moment.

 Am    Amsus2   Am  Amsus2   Am                       Em
Hold the       darkness     back for just as long as you can.


 Em  Em       G     Em
So, suddenly very slow, 

 Em                A      G     Em
suddenly can't outrun the undertow.
No, suddenly I don't know 
anything but this sense of letting go.
Low, down to the ground I go,
beaten down by the years of body blows.
Though I made it through the shows
something got left behind, a debt I owe....

held in store

saved up from before


All the tiredness 	my old friend
All the tiredness 	mounts up in the end
All the tiredness 	wears you down in the end
All the tiredness 	mounts up in the end.

All the tiredness
