    Am     C (½)    Dsus2 (½)   Am       C (½)   Dsus2 (½)     

          I hurt myself today          to see if     I still feel

    Am    C (½)    Dsus2 (½)     Am         C (½)  Dsus2 (½)     

          I focus    on the pain         the only thing that's real

    Am         C (½)    Dsus2 (½)   Am         C (½)   Dsus2 (½)     

          The needle tears a hole         the old familiar sting

    Am            C (½)   Dsus2 (½)  Am            C (½)       Dsus2 (½)           

          Try to kill it all away            but I remember everything

        I wear this crown of thorns   upon my liar's chair

    Am    C (½)    Dsus2 (½)    Am        C (½)   Dsus2 (½)     

           Full of broken thoughts   I cannot repair

    Am      C (½)         Dsus2 (½) Am          C (½)     Dsus2 (½)     

        Beneath the stains of time       the feelings disappear

    I will let you down            I will make you hurt

     

    Am7                  Fadd9         G (2)

    If I could start again         A million miles away

    Am7              Fadd9      G (hold)

    I would keep myself        I would find a way
