Verse:
 Am       E  
Hear the sound 
     Dm           F
The angels come screaming 
 Am         E
Down, your voice 
   Dm               F
I hear you've been bleeding 
 Am         E
Make your choice 
     Dm               F 
They say you've been pleading 

Someone save us 

Chorus:
C       G      Am
Heaven help us now 
       F       C
Come crashing down 
       G         Am
We'll hear the sound 
           F              
As you're falling down meds 

Verse:
Am                 E     
I'm at this old hotel 
                         Dm
Can't tell if I've been, breathing or sleeping 
                 F
Or screaming or waiting for the man to call 
          Am           E 
And maybe all of the above 
                        Dm
Cause mostly I've been sprawled on these cathedral steps 
       F
While spitting out the blood and screaming 

Someone save us 

Chorus:
C       G      Am
Heaven help us now 
       F       C
Come crashing down 
       G         Am
We'll hear the sound 
           F              
As you're falling down meds 

Bridge:
              C       
And will you pray for me? 
            G
Or make me say don't leave? 
              Am     
And will you lay for me? 
           F
Or make a saint of me? 
            F                   
Cause I'll give you all the nails you need 
G
Cover me in gasoline 
E                                     Am
Wipe away those tears of blood again
         F
And the punchline to the joke is asking 

Someone save us 

Chorus:
C       G      Am
Heaven help us now 
       F       C
Come crashing down 
       G         Am
We'll hear the sound 
           F              
As you're falling down meds 


              C       G
And will you pray for me? 
            Am        F
Or make me say don't leave? 
              C      G     
And will you lay for me? 
            Am
Or make a saint of me? 
            F                   
Cause I'll give you all the nails you need 
G                         Am
Cover me in gasoline again

  1. I think a G fits after the F in the verses then maybe an A leading into the chorus

  2. Just a couple notes:

    ignore the “meds” written in there after some of the verses, i have no idea what that is but it’s not the lyrics

    it’s “make a saint of me” not “make me say don’t leave”

    awesome otherwise :)

    • I kinda get the “meds” part… You can kind of hear Gerard sing it. Not sure about the “make me say don’t leave.”

  3. The C on down sounds better if you stum it one and then pick going 4,1,3,2

  4. Omg I love this song and the set chords are pretty easy already!
