Intro: F Bb Dm Bb

F                      Bb
Help me, it's like the walls are caving in
    Dm
Sometimes I feel like giving up
    Bb                           F
But I just can't, it isn't in my blood

Verse 1:
                                              Bb
Laying on the bathroom floor, feeling nothing

I'm overwhelmed and insecure
                  Dm
Give me something
                                    Bb
I could take to ease my mind slowly
                                  F
Just have a drink and you'll feel better
                                   Bb
Just take her home and you'll feel better
                             Dm
Keep telling me that it gets better
        Bb
Does it ever?

Chorus:
F                      Bb
Help me, it's like the walls are caving in
    Dm
Sometimes I feel like giving up
   Bb
No medicine is strong enough
        F
Someone help me
    Bb
I'm crawling in my skin
    Dm
Sometimes I feel like giving up
    Bb                           F      Bb
But I just can't, it isn't in my blood
               Dm     Bb
It isn't in my blood

Verse 2:
F                                              Bb
Looking through my phone again feeling anxious
                                      Dm
Afraid to be alone again, I hate this
                                         Bb
I'm trying to find a way to chill, can't breathe, oh
                             F
Is there somebody that could help me?

Chorus:
              Bb
It's like the walls are caving in
    Dm
Sometimes I feel like giving up
   Bb
No medicine is strong enough
        F
Someone help me
    Bb
I'm crawling in my skin
    Dm
Sometimes I feel like giving up
    Bb                           F      Bb
But I just can't, it isn't in my blood
               Dm     Bb
It isn't in my blood

Bridge:
                F
I need somebody now
                Bb
I need somebody now
                   Dm
Someone to help me out
                Bb
I need somebody now

Outro:
F
Help me
              Bb
It's like the wall are caving in
    Dm
Sometimes I feel like giving up
    Bb                           F       Bb
But I just can't, it isn't in my blood
               Dm     Bb
It isn't in my blood
               F
It isn't in my blood
                Bb
I need somebody now
               Dm
It isn't in my blood
                Bb
I need somebody now

    For strumming, I strum down with my thumb and then right after pick the bottom string with my index finger through out the whole song. I think that it sounds really good with -5 personally.

  2. I usually use down, down, up, up, down, up.😊

  3. chloe campbell

    I love this song so much it helps with my anxiety issues.

  4. Is there a plucking pattern to this that I could use?

  5. For the strumming pattern if you listen to the song it sound like there just strumming down and four counts for each chord

    • Silverfang_77

      I agree.
      Though for the chorus, it speeds up some.

    • watch The Ukulele Teacher’s tutorial on YouTube and then use this for practice. he’s very good at uke tutorials and explains things well.

  6. Does anyone have suggestions for the strumming pattern for each verse and the chorus??

    • Broadway_Bash

      DDDDDUDUDDDDUDUDDDDUDUD

      if you listen to the last instrumental part of the song it has a guitar part that I based the strumming pattern on, but I also kinda improvised a little when it slows down and stuff. Just feel the music.

  7. Omg the Bb chord will be the death of me. I can’t seem to get it rightttt! Ah!

    • you can try barring the first fret with you index finger and then using your middle finger for the 3rd string and ring finger for the 4th string. Hope that helps!

    • I cranched the transposer up to +2 and it’s is definitely easier ❤️
