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


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

Chorus:
Db                 Ab             Eb               Ab
Life can get you down so I just numb the way it feels
  Db               Ab                Eb       Eb         Fm
I drown it with a drink and out of date prescription pills
    Db                  Eb                Fm      Eb      Db
And all the ones that love me they just left me on the shelf
           Bb7
My farewell
            Bbm7                     Bbm7 Ab   Db   Eb   Ab
So before I save someone else, I've got to save myself

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

Chorus:
Db                 Ab             Eb               Ab
Life can get you down so I just numb the way it feels
  Db               Ab                Eb       Eb        Fm
I drown it with a drink and out of date prescription pills
    Db                  Eb                Fm      Eb      Db
And all the ones that love me they just left me on the shelf
           Bb7
My farewell
            Bbm7                     Bbm7 Ab   Db   Eb   Ab
So before I save someone else, I've got to save myself

Bridge:
         Fm                  Db
But if I don't, then I'll go back
                Ab
To where I'm rescuing a stranger
        Eb                                  Fm
Just because they needed saving just like that
              Db
Oh, I'm here again
            Ab
Between the devil and the danger
       Eb
But I guess it's just my nature
            Db
My dad was wrong
                        Eb
'Cause I'm not like my mum
                   Fm               Eb            Db
'Cause she'd just smile and I'm complaining in a song
       Bb7
But it helps
            Bbm7                     Bbm7 Ab   Db   Eb   Ab
So before I save someone else, I've got to save myself

Chorus:
Db                 Ab             Eb               Ab
Life can get you down so I just numb the way it feels
  Db               Ab                Eb       Eb        Fm
I drown it with a drink and out of date prescription pills
    Db                  Eb                Fm      Eb      Db
And all the ones that love me they just left me on the shelf
           Bb7
My farewell
            Bbm7                     Bbm7 Ab   Db   Eb   Ab
So before I save someone else, I've got to save myself
             Bbm7                      Bbm7 Ab   Db   Eb   Ab
And before I blame someone else, I've got to save myself
             Bbm7                     Bbm7 Ab   Db   Eb   Ab
And before I love someone else, I've got to love myself
