Verse:
  Cm                              Gm
I feel for you but when did you believe you were alone
     Cm                                   Gm
You say that spiders crawled inside and made themselves a home
        F         D
Where light once was


   Cm                        Gm
Petrified of who you are and who you have become
 Cm                           Gm
You will hide from everyone, denying you need someone
F                    D
To exterminate your bones

Chorus:
   Bb       F      Gm          Eb
Friend, please remove your hands from
Bb  F       Gm      D
Over your eyes for me
Bb  F        Gm       Eb
I know you want to leave but
Bb          F          Gm        D    Cm      Gm
Friend, please don't take your life away from me

Interlude: Cm Gm Cm Gm

Verse:
Cm                                Gm       
Living like a ghost you walk by everyone you know
 Cm                                   Gm
You say that you're fine but you have lost your sway and glow
F                           D
So I stopped by to let you know

Chorus:
   Bb       F      Gm          Eb
Friend, please remove your hands from
Bb  F       Gm      D
Over your eyes for me
Bb  F        Gm       Eb
I know you want to leave but
Bb          F          Gm        Eb    D        Gm
Friend, please don't take your life away from me

Verse:
                  Bb          Dm      Eb
Would you let me know your plans tonight
                         Bb           Dm           Eb
'Cause I just won't let go 'til we both see the light
                     Bb           Eb
And I have nothing else left to say
                  Bb       D  Eb           F
But I will listen to you all day, yes I will
  
Interlude: Cm Gm Cm Gm F D

Chorus:
   Bb       F      Gm          Eb
Friend, please remove your hands from
Bb  F       Gm      D
Over your eyes for me
Bb  F        Gm       Eb
I know you want to leave but
Bb          F          Gm        D             Gm
Friend, please don't take your life away from me

    This song is the one song that helps me with my depression yet also causes it at the same time…

    It was my best friends (who was basically my brother) favourite song and it was actually the last song he listened too before he committed suicide….

  2. Ugh, I wish I could’ve played this to my brother before he decided to take his own life..

    • oh my gosh im so sorry that must be awful..stay strong :(

    • Izzy_is_dying

      I understand how it feels. But this was the last song he actually heard before he took his life…
      It’s hard knowing that the one song that helps with your suicidal thoughts is also one that causes them.

  3. Poison_r.o.s.e

    This song makes me cry every time because it is so f***ing relatable for me and I honestly don’t know why I keep playing it.

      it got messed up but if you’re on mobile, turn your screen to landscape mode and it should be fixed.

  5. Lauren21

    +2 sounds amazing and it’s SUPER EASY ;)

  6. serinayeee

    Thank you so much for making this! Me and my friend are going to do this for another friend because she’s depressed, and doesn’t think she has anybody.

    • MyPrettyWeeper

      Tell your friend we care about her, and to stay alive for all of us. :)

    • Lauren21

      Tell her that she has friends who truly care about her. That she isn’t alone. Stay Alive |-/

    • danandphilneedapupper

      please please tell her she has lots of people like you guys that care about her. She’s not alone! Stay alive |-/

  7. iridisorbis

    Finger picking pattern I use for some parts:
    A + G string, C string, E string
    sounds like the piano

  8. TwentyOneTyjo

    The easiest is at -3. In the final chord that is Em you should change It for a G. It sounds better

  9. +2 is the easiest in my opinion!

  10. Thx though

  11. To be honest I would rather you end it with a Bb instead of a Gm

  12. microwavesmaster

    can’t play this without crying

  13. cherryblur

    It sounds better if you end it on Bb instead of Gm

  14. Smiling Cupcake

    This is so beautiful and fun to play! Thank you so much for making this❤

  15. demonplasticbeach

    This sounds so lovely, I can’t–

  16. DomingoEnFuego

    In second chorus instead of current chords I suggest playing Gm, Gm, D and Em on “…don’t take your life away from me”. I think it sounds closest to the original ;) Also, in the last chorus, it should be D, Cm and Bb on “…away from me”. Stay alive |-/

  17. its better if you end it on Bb

  18. what is the strumming pattern?

  19. d-udu? Thats what i use as a stumming pattern

  20. Abbydabbydoo2903
