I'm serving time

All for a crime I did commit
             G#
You want the truth?

You know I'd do it all again

Calling from down inside the well
                  G#
("See that silver shine?")

She said to come claim what was mine
          G#         Cm       Eb/D    D#   G
So down I fell, down into the water black
          G#
My prison cell

Only the moon was shining back!

[Interlude]
G         Cm
If I seem lost
     G             Cm
When I weighed the cost

And  chose my crime

Now, it's mine, all mine!

Calling from just outside the well
