Intro: | Em | Em C | G6 | G6 D/F# |

   Em           C            G6
I awoke only to find my lungs empty
    D/F#        Em            C           G6
And through the night, so it seems I'm not breathing
    D/F#   Em                 C             G6
And now my dreams are nothing like they were meant to be
       D/F#      Em               C          G6
And I'm breaking down, I think I'm breaking down

   D/F#  Em               C             G6
And I'm afraid to sleep because of what haunts me
D/F#  Em            C      G6
 Such as living with the uncertainty
D/F#       Em                       C             G6              D/F#
 That I'll never find the words to say which would completely explain
Em           C            G6   D/F#
 Just how I'm breaking down

Dadd(9,11)        Em               C
Someone come and, someone come and save my life
           Dadd(9,11)      Em                          C
Maybe I'll sleep when I am dead, but now it's like the night is taking sides
     Dadd(9,11)           Em         C
With all the worries that occupy the back of my mind
         Dadd(9,11)  Em          C
Could it be this misery will suffice?

| Em | Em C | G6 | G6 D/F# | (2 times)

D/F#   Em             C         G6
I've become a simple souvenir of someone's kill
    D/F#     Em                  C            G6
And like the sea, I'm constantly changing from calm to ill
D/F# Em                         C            G6                         D/F#
    Madness fills my heart and soul as if the great divide could swallow me whole
Em           C            G6   D/F#
 Oh, how I'm breaking down

Dadd(9,11)        Em               C
Someone come and, someone come and save my life
           Dadd(9,11)      Em                          C
Maybe I'll sleep when I am dead, but now it's like the night is taking sides
     Dadd(9,11)           Em         C
With all the worries that occupy the back of my mind
         Dadd(9,11)  Em          C
Could it be this misery will suffice? Oh, my life

Dadd(9,11)        Em               C
Someone come and, someone come and save my life (save my life)
Dadd(9,11)        Em               C
Someone come and, someone come and save my life (save my life)
Dadd(9,11)        Em               C
Someone come and, someone come and save my life
         Dadd(9,11)  Em          C
Could it be this misery will suffice?
