Verse:
C       F               Am
I never thought I'd die alone
                F                  C
I laughed the loudest who'd have known?
              F              Am
I trace the cord back to the wall
                  F                          C
No wonder it was never plugged in at all
           F            Am
I took my time, I hurried up
                 F                  C
The choice was mine I didn't think enough
          F            Am
I'm too depressed to go on
           F               C
You'll be sorry when I'm gone

Chorus:
C          Dm              Am
I never conquered, rarely came
         F                 C
16 just held such better days
          Dm            Am
Days when I still felt alive
            F               C
We couldn't wait to get outside
                Dm             Am
The world was wide, too late to try
             F               C
The tour was over we'd survived
             Dm             Am
I couldn't wait till I got home
              F                C
To pass the time in my room alone

Verse:
C         F               Am
I never thought I'd die alone
              F                 C
Another six months I'll be unknown
              F               Am
Give all my things to all my friends
                   F               C
You'll never step foot in my room again
                F             Am
You'll close it off, board it up
               F                     C
Remember the time that I spilled the cup
          F            Am
Of apple juice in the hall
             F                   C
Please tell mom this is not her fault

Chorus:
C         Dm              Am
I never conquered, rarely came
         F                 C
16 just held such better days
           Dm              Am
Days when I still felt alive
            F               C
We couldn't wait to get outside
                F                Am
The world was wide, too late to try
             F               C
The tour was over we'd survived
             F               Am
I couldn't wait till I got home
              F                C
To pass the time in my room alone

Chorus:
C          Dm              Am
I never conquered, rarely came
             F              C
tomorrow holds such better days
             Dm              Am
Days when I can still feel alive
                 F             C
When I couldn't wait to get outside
                Dm              Am
The world is wide, the time goes by
              F              C
The tour is over, I've survived
         Dm              Am
I can't wait till I get home
              F               C
To pass the time in my room alone

  1. this song really sounds like it’s about suicide

  2. blindandtired

    -3 works the best for me

  3. The picking patten I use isnt completely accurate but it’s simple:
    G——————-|
    C-0——-0———|
    E——0——–0—|
    A—-3——-3——|

    G——————-|
    C-0——-0———|
    E——0——–0—|
    A—-0——-0——|

    And I just repeat that over & over again throughout the verse & chorus

  4. Elizabeth Parker

    I love these guys! My sister loves them, too, but at first she said that Mark looks like a toenail. Then, she said he looked like a thumb when I was doing my homework. I love you, Blink!

  5. Why don’t these include the strumming pattern

  6. ukeisannoyingbutcool

    agreed

  7. Ukulele_screamo_enthusiast

    For the intro I use:

    G—0—–0————— x4
    C-0—–0—–0—0–0—0
    E—–0—–0—0——0–
    A————————-

    Interludes 1&2 are x2 and 3 is x1:
    G—0—–0——————-0————–
    C-0—–0—–0—0–0—0–0—–0—–0—-
    E—–0—–0—0——0——–0—0—–0–
    A————————————-0—–0
    Interlude 4:

    G—0———- x16 then —G—————————
    C-0—–0–0— —C-0-0-0-0-0–0—0—0—0–
    E—–0——0- —E————–0—0—0—-
    A————– —A—————————

    G————–0—0—0– x2
    C-0-0-0-0-0–0—0—0—0
    E————————-
    A————————-

    This is all a complete estimate but I hope you find it useful :)

  8. I think the intro goes something like this:
    G–0—0—————-
    C-0—0—0—0–0-0-0-0
    E—0—0—0—0-1—1-
    A———-0—0——–

    It’s not perfect but it does work for me
