[Intro]
Am    G    Dm
...............

[Verse 1]
Am    
...I think it's kinda fun to trace it
G                       Dm 
..Back to where it all began
Am
...Back in Dublin, in the kitchen
G                       Dm
..Up late talking to my mam
           Am
She was standing by the oven
          
A strong and stoic woman
   G                          Dm
I saw her as an equal, as a friend
      Am                                
And I saw myself inside her, a sobering reminder
    G                            Dm 
We all become our mother in the end

[Chorus]
G Am                      
.....You can leave it all behind
G/B C Em                         Dm      
.........Skip a beat in the bloodline
Dm C  Am                      
.........And you've been hiding all your life, it's time
G/B C Em                             F   
.........To skip a beat in the bloodline
Dm               Am
Oh, in the bloodline

[Instrumental]
Am     G/B  C   Em   F    Dm

[Verse 2]

I always feel like I'm the bad guy
G                                  Dm 
'Cause I'm the one that upped and left
Am                       
It kind of feels lik? living two lives
     G                       Em
And always tryna catch your breath
           Am
Now I've gotta go my own way
Talk about a cliche
    G                            Dm
Remember to call home on the weekend
     Am
The radio is blaring
             
We turn into my parents
G                             Dm 
..It goes dark, and then it starts, then it starts again

[Chorus]
G Am                      
.....You can leave it all behind
G/B C Em                         Dm      
.........Skip a beat in the bloodline
Dm C  Am                      
.........And you've been hiding all your life, it's time
G/B C Em                             F   
.........To skip a beat in the bloodline
Dm               Am    G/B C   G   Dm
Oh, in the bloodline...................
                 Am    G/B  C    G    Dm 
Oh, in the bloodline.......................

[Outro]
A                   G
I don't wanna run away
     D                 A
But you, you don't get me
                 Em
I, I keep it all in
                 D                     A
'Cause we never talk about difficult things
                   G
I don't wanna run away

But you, you don't get me

(ooh oohh) We never talk about difficult things
  A    Em            D                      A      
(ooh oohh) We never talk about difficult things
  A    G             D                     A
(ooh oohh) We never talk about difficult things
  A   Em              D                     A 
(ooh oohh) We never talk about difficult things
