[Verse 1]

Bm
They would yell, they would scream, they were fighting it out
G
She would hope, she would pray, she was waiting it out
A                                             G
Holding on to a dream, while she watches these walls fall down

Bm                                                 
Sharp words like knives, they were cutting her down
G
Shattered glass like the past it’s a memory now
A                                             G
Holding on to a dream, while she watches these walls fall down


[Chorus]

D                                    A
Hey mum, hey dad, when did this end?
                                   Bm
When did you lose your happiness?
                              G
I’m here alone inside of this broken home
D                                          A
Who’s right, who’s wrong, who really cares?
                                            Bm
The fault, the blame, the pain’s still there
                              G
I’m here alone inside of this broken home
                Bm
This broken home


[Verse 2]

Bm                                                  G
Wrote it down on the walls, she was screaming it out
                                                      A
Made it clear, she’s still here, are you listening out
                                                  G
Just a ghost in the halls feeling empty, they’re vacant now

Bm                                                         G
All the battles, all the wars, all the time that you fought
                                                                 A
She’s the scar, she’s the bruises she’s the pain that you brought
                                                     G
There was life, there was love like a light and it’s fading out


[Chorus]

D                                    A
Hey mum, hey dad, when did this end?
                                   Bm
When did you lose your happiness?
                              G
I’m here alone inside of this broken home
D                                          A
Who’s right, who’s wrong, who really cares?
                                            Bm
The fault, the blame, the pain’s still there
                              G
I’m here alone inside of this broken home
                Bm
This broken home


[Bridge]

Bm
 You’ve gotta let it go
G
 You’re losing all your hope
D
 Nothing left to hold
A
 Locked out in the cold
Bm
 You painted memories
G
 Then washed out all the scenes
D
 I’m stuck in between
A
 A nightmare and lost dreams

D                                    A
Hey mum, hey dad, when did this end?
                                   Bm
When did you lose your happiness?
                              G
I’m here alone inside of this broken home


[Chorus]

D                                    A
Hey mum, hey dad, when did this end?
                                   Bm
When did you lose your happiness?
                              G
I’m here alone inside of this broken home
D                                          A
Who’s right, who’s wrong, who really cares?
                                            Bm
The fault, the blame, the pain’s still there
                              G
I’m here alone inside of this broken home
                Bm
This broken home
