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

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

  1. I’m playing this while I’m on a crisis trying to calm down. I wish I had someone to rely on like the people on the comments have said.

  2. LivingDeath

    No one ever told me about this song. But about a year ago I saw it on YouTube and decided to take a listen. I was sitting in class, I wasn’t able to do my work because I was too wrapped up in my thoughts. I was so depressed and suicidal and I listened to this song for the first time that day. I started crying in the middle of class. Now I listen to this song whenever I’m at my lowest.

  3. Emo bands saved my life

    To all those out there who are suicidal, or just depressed in general, keep fighting. I’m in this battle with you and hey, maybe if we Hold on till May, (If you get the reference your a legend) we can win this fight. Stay alive frens ll-//

  4. This song saved me and I’m thankful everyday.

  5. Lost At The TØP

    2 years ago I had a conversation with one of my friends who was close to taking her life but was longing for someone to notice her and stop her.
    I recorded and sent her covers of this song and “Lovely – by T.Ø.P.” she stopped everything she was doing (with help)

    and now my girlfriend and I are happy living life with no regrets

  6. OkieDokieArtichoke

    Thanks for being alive, I appreciate it so much and want you to know your in someone’s thought right now, no matter how faded you feel. please stay alive for those minds.

  7. dannycantread

    A year ago today I sat on a building edge with my friend playing this song for him. He was so close to taking his life and I’m honestly so happy that he’s still here with me.

  8. sadchlorine

    i sing this song all nights to myself so i don’t have that strong suicidal thoughts

  9. I often have suicidal thoughts and self harming thoughts, my good friend put this into my headphones and said this is for you … i started crying . He is my only and the best friend i have ever had and probably will have if i didnt have him i would probably have committed suicide a loong time ago…
