Intro: Bbm, Ab, Db, Gb 

Verse:
 Bbm             Ab              Db     Gb
 I thought that I've been hurt before
     Bbm                 Ab             Db    Gb  
 But no one's ever left me quite this sore
 Bbm             Ab             Db     Gb
 Your words cut deeper than a knife
       Bbm              Ab                  Gb
 Now I need someone to breathe me back to life
 
Pre-Chorus:
 Bbm                     Ab
 Got a feeling that I'm going under
 Db                    Gb
 But I know that I'll make it out alive
 Bbm                Ab 
 If I quit calling you my lover
 Db      Gb
 Move on

Chorus:
              Bbm                         Ab
 You watch me bleed until I can't breathe
              Db                    Gb
 I'm shaking, falling onto my knees
              Bbm               Ab
 And now that I'm without your kisses
 Db               Gb
 I'll be needing stitches
     Bbm                   Ab
 I'm tripping over myself,
            Db                       Gb
 I'm aching begging you to come help
              Bbm               Ab
 And now that I'm without your kisses
 Db               Gb
 I'll be needing stitches

Verse:
 Bbm          Ab               Db    Gb
 Just like a moth drawn to a flame
         Bbm             Ab                  Db   Gb  
 Oh, you lured me in, I couldn't sense the pain
 Bbm          Ab                 Db    Gb 
 Your bitter heart cold to the touch
               Bbm             Ab
 Now I'm gonna reap what I sow
                 Db            Gb
 I'm left seeing red on my own

Bridge:
 Bbm                     Ab
 Got a feeling that I'm going under
 Db                    Gb
 But I know that I'll make it out alive
 Bbm                Ab 
 If I quit calling you my lover
 Db      Gb
 Move on
 
Chorus:
              Bbm                         Ab
 You watch me bleed until I can't breathe
              Db                    Gb
 I'm shaking, falling onto my knees
              Bbm               Ab
 And now that I'm without your kisses
 Db               Gb
 I'll be needing stitches
     Bbm                   Ab
 I'm tripping over myself,
            Db                       Gb
 I'm aching begging you to come help
              Bbm               Ab
 And now that I'm without your kisses
 Db               Gb
 I'll be needing stitches

 And now that I'm without your kisses
 Db               Gb

  1. -6 is easiest :))

  2. the chorus strumming is different theneverything else, right?? does anybody know what it is?

  3. for the strumming pattern I found the D-U U-U-U works well and for the intro I found if you use the cords of Am, G, C, F with the same strumming pattern

  4. I use a pattern that really changes the song and gives it a kind of island vibe. If you’re into that kind of thing, try DDU UDU.

  5. SomeoneWhoLikesPizza

    I use this strumming everytime it works with anything ddu pause udud repeat

  6. jadeannpenny

    Has anyone got easier ways to play Db?

  7. ukulele _genius

    I feel like the lyrics are a bit off, but I’m probably wrong.

  8. -6 is way easier and sounds way better. :)

  9. I feel like if you add a c at the end in -1 key it sounds a whole lot better!

  10. On the verses i use a strumming pattern of just once down on each beat, then in the chorous i play down four times on each note, then on the bridge i do half notes so two down on each note

  11. MyChemicalRomanceFan

    I played this on +6 but I changed Em to F.

  12. I love this song but the chords don’t sound quite right to me.:(

  13. Bob the uke guy

    Pattern not later

  14. Bob the uke guy

    Strumming later. Is duuuu repeat
    D=down
    U=up

  15. Bob the uke guy

    Strumming later. Is duuuu repeat

  16. Strumming pattern?

  17. Gretchen Weiner

    What is the strumming pattern?

  18. What’s the strum pattern

  19. Kindaoddmilla it might be easier to use a capo on the 2nd or 4th fret and still play the normal 0. Its what i do whenever a song is too low for my voice

  20. STRUMMING PATERN PLEASE
