E          B                      Dbm
Turn away, if you could get me a drink of water
       Am
Cuz my lips are chapped and faded
        E
Call my Aunt Marie
B                      Dbm
Help her gather all my things
               Am
And bury me in all my favourite colours
   A
My sisters and my brothers


B       B        Dbm      Am
Still I will not kiss you
        Gbm             B                  E
Cuz the hardest part of this is leaving you


E             B                      Dbm
Now turn away, cuz I'm awful just to see
                   Am
Cuz all my hair's abandoned all my body
      E
Oh my agony
B                      Dbm
Know that I will never marry
              Am
Baby I'm just soggy from the chemo
     A
But counting down the days to go


B  B          Dbm
It just ain't livin'
            Am
And I just hope you know
      E         Am
That if you say goodbye today
    Dbm                Dbm  B  Am  Ab
I'd ask you to be true
         Gbm             B               Dbm
Cuz the hardest part of this is leaving you
Dbm     B   B   
Woah
         Gbm             B              E
Cuz the hardest part of this is leaving you.

  1. Gerard way is one thicc bih

    This hurts me. The MCR version is better than the top version fite me

  2. fluent_gay

    +3

  3. tøpphan

    -4

  4. jesus CHRIST

    jesus and i ususually dont use my name in vain. but some of the chords are a bit hard to play next to eachother… (not tryn be rude)

  5. +3 and plucking the c string once and then the e and a string at the same time twice sounds pretty cool

  6. dylan at a disco

    -2 sounds the best but you should replace all the “Gm”s with “Am”s

    tøp’s cover is beautiful. I listened to it a lot when I first started liking them. I do have to say though, mcr’s version has a bit of a sad rock vibe whereas tøp’s cover has just a sad slow vibe. The original is beautiful, absolutely, but the tøp one is still good. You should appreciate the original but you can still like the cover. Personally, I like the mcr one more because it has memories attached to it for me, but other people may disagree. It doesn’t matter if you like the cover more or not, as long as you appreciate the art of the original. thanks |-/ mcrx

      Thank you! I love both versions in different ways, and I’m glad you’re not one of those people who hates on TOP fans for liking the cover.

        The clique is my family, yet I’m a diehard killjoy. It doesn’t fricking matter if you’re a tøp fan and you like the MCR version more or vice versa. Everyone needs to calm down. Also both of our names are tøp reference so I love you now because you agree with me and you’re a tøp fan

    • MyPrettyWeeper

      Yesss, I love your name too!
