Intro: Eb Bb Cm Ab

  Cm                               Ab
I dream a lot, I know you say I've got to get away.
     Eb                                     Bb
"The world is not yours for the taking" is all you ever say.
  Cm                                 Ab
I know I'm not the best for you, but promise that you'll stay.
            Eb
'Cause if I watch you go, you'll see me wasting,
       Bb
You'll see me wasted away


         Eb                          Bb
'Cause today, you walked out of my life
         Cm                            Ab
'Cause today, your words felt like a knife
                     Cm Ab Eb Bb
I'm not living this life.


    Cm                               Ab
Goodbyes are meant for lonely people standing in the rain
       Eb                             Bb
And no matter where I go it's always pouring all the same.
      Cm                                    Ab
These streets are filled with memories both perfect and in pain
          Eb                                Bb
And all I wanna do is love you but I'm the only one to blame.


         Eb                          Bb
'Cause today, you walked out of my life
         Cm                            Ab
'Cause today, your words felt like a knife

I'm not living this life.


            Bb
But what do I know, if you're leaving

All you did was stop the bleeding.
          Cm
But these scars will stay forever,

These scars will stay forever
          Bb
And these words have no meaning

If we cannot find the feeling
        Ab
That we held on to together

Try your hardest to remember


Eb
Stay with me,
   Bb
Or watch me bleed,
  Cm                 Ab
I need you just to breathe.


         Eb                          Bb      
'Cause today, you walked out of my life

-stay with me, or watch me bleed-
         Cm                          Ab
'Cause today, your words felt like a knife

-i need you just to breathe.-
                     Eb 
I'm not living this life.
