Tuned down one half step

Am                   C           G  Dsus2           Am  
 And it's been awhile since I could hold my head up high
                    C              G        Dsus2
And it's been awhile since I first saw you
Am                   C              G           Dsus2         Am  
 And it's been awhile since I could stand on my own two feet again
                    C              G        Dsus2
And it's been awhile since I could call you
Am        C               G       Dsus2
 And everything I can't remember 
Am            C             G     Dsus2
 as fucked up as it all may seem 
Am        C                G         Dsus2
 the consequences that are rendered 
Am                C              G      Dsus2
 I've stretched myself beyond my means

And it's been awhile since I could say that I wasn't addicted
And it's been awhile since I could say I love myself as well
And it's been awhile since I've gone and fucked things up just like I always do
And it's been awhile but all that shit seems to disappear when I'm with you
And everything I can't remember
as fucked up as it all may seem
The consequences that are rendered,
I've gone and fucked things up again.

G Dsus2 Am                    G    Dsus2
         Why must I feel this way
Am                  G    Dsus2
 Just make this go away,
Am                      G    Dsus2  Am
 Just one more peaceful day

Am                   C           G Dsus2           Am  
 And it's been awhile since I could look at myself straight
                    C                 G        Dsus2
And it's been awhile since I said I'm sorry
Am                   C                    G       Dsus2              Am  
 And it's been awhile since I've seen the way the candles light your face
                    C          G              Dsus2            Am
And it's been awhile but I can still remember just the way you taste
         C               G       Dsus2
And everything I can't remember
Am            C             G       Dsus2           Am
 as fucked up as it all may seem to be, I know it's me
         C                G         Dsus2
I cannot blame this on my father 
Am          C                 G      Dsus2
 he did the best he could for me

Am                   C           G Dsus2            Am  
 And it's been awhile since I could hold my head up high
                    C                 G
And it's been awhile since I said I'm sorry
