Verse:
D             A         Bm                 G
I gave all my oxygen to people that could breath
   D           A             Bm             G
I gave away my money and now we don't even speak
  D               A                    Bm      A       G
I drove miles and miles, but would you do the same for me?
   D  A  D
Oh ho-o-onestly


D              A                 Bm           G
Offered off my shoulder just for you to cry upon
D                 A             Bm               G
Gave you constant shelter and a bed to keep you warm
D                A                  Bm     A      G 
They gave me the heartache and in return I gave a song
         D     A    D
Its goes o-o-on and on 

Chorus:
G                 D             A               D
Life can get you down so I just numb the way it feels
  G               D                A       A         Bm
I drown it with a drink and out of date prescription pills
    G                  A                Bm      A      G
And all the ones that love me they just left me on the shelf
           E7
My farewell
            Em7                     Em7 D   G   A   D
So before I save someone else, I've got to save myself

Verse:
  D               A            Bm             G
I gave you all my energy and I took away your pain
       D                A           Bm         G
'Cause human beings are destined to radiate or drain
 D              A                      Bm      A         G
What line do we stand upon 'cause from here it looks the same?
    D     A      D
And only scars remain

Chorus:
G                 D             A               D
Life can get you down so I just numb the way it feels
  G               D                A       A        Bm
I drown it with a drink and out of date prescription pills
    G                  A                Bm      A      G
And all the ones that love me they just left me on the shelf
           E7
My farewell
            Em7                     Em7 D   G   A   D
So before I save someone else, I've got to save myself

Bridge:
         Bm                  G
But if I don't, then I'll go back
                D
To where I'm rescuing a stranger
        A                                  Bm
Just because they needed saving just like that
              G
Oh, I'm here again
            D
Between the devil and the danger
       A
But I guess it's just my nature
            G
My dad was wrong
                        A
'Cause I'm not like my mum
                   Bm               A            G
'Cause she'd just smile and I'm complaining in a song
       E7
But it helps
            Em7                     Em7 D   G   A   D
So before I save someone else, I've got to save myself

Chorus:
G                 D             A               D
Life can get you down so I just numb the way it feels
  G               D                A       A        Bm
I drown it with a drink and out of date prescription pills
    G                  A                Bm      A      G
And all the ones that love me they just left me on the shelf
           E7
My farewell
            Em7                     Em7 D   G   A   D
So before I save someone else, I've got to save myself
             Em7                      Em7 D   G   A   D
And before I blame someone else, I've got to save myself
             Em7                     Em7 D   G   A   D
And before I love someone else, I've got to love myself
