F#m             E     B
 Throw away the radio, suitcase that keeps you awake
F#m           E              B
 Hide the telephone, the telephone, telephone in case
F#m            E  B
 You realize that, sometimes, you're just not okay
F#m        E              B
 You level off, you level off, you level off, but it's not alright now
F#m        A      E              B
 You need to understand, there's nothing strange about this
F#m   A                B
 You need to know your friends, you need to know that

A                 E                  A                   B                F#
I'll be waving my hand, watching you drown, watching you scream, quiet or loud

C#         A          E       B
 And maybe you should sleep
C#         A        E   B
 And maybe you just need a friend
A          C#        B                    F#
 As clumsy as you've been, there's no one laughing
A           E       B    F#
You will be safe in here
A           E       B
You will be safe in here

F#m              E       B
 Throw away this very old shoelace that tripped you again
F#m      E                      B
 Try and shrug it off, shrug it off, shrug it off, it's only skin now
F#m  A            E              B
 You need to understand, there's nothing fake about this
F#m  A              B
 You need to let me in, I'm watching you when

A                 E                  A                   B                 F#
I'll be waving my hand, watching you drown, watching you scream, no one's around

C#         A          E       B
 And maybe you should sleep
C#         A        E   B
 And maybe you just need a friend
A          C#        B                    F#
 As clumsy as you've been, there's no one laughing
A           E       B    F#
You will be safe in here
A           E
You will be safe in

I'll be waving my hand, watching you drown, watching you scream, quiet or loud

C#         A          E       B
