Am | C | D | D (2x)

Verse 1:
Am  C      D      Am      C      D       Am
I   hurt myself today, to see if I still feel
  C     D      Am        C    D           Am
I focus on the pain, the only thing thats real
    C      D       Am        C     D      Am
The needle tears a hole, the old familiar sting
       C       D    Am           C      D    G
Try to kill it all away, but I remember everything

Chorus 1:
Am7            Fadd9 C*             G
What Have I become,  my sweetest friend
Am7        Fadd9         C*              G
Everyone I know goes away,   in the end
Am7                   Fadd9  C*             G         
And you could have it all,   my empire of dirt
Am7            Fadd9                  
I will let you down,   I will make you hurt

Instrumental:
Am | C | D | D 

Verse 2:
Am C         D        Am       C      D     Am
I  wear this crown of thorns, upon my liars chair
C       D      Am        C    D     Am
Full of broken thoughts, I cannot repair
  C         D         Am        C       D      Am
Beneath the stains of time, the feeling   disappears
C       D       Am    C    D           G
You are someone else, I am still right here

Chorus 2:
Am7            Fadd9 C*             G
What Have I become,  my sweetest friend
Am7        Fadd9         C*              G
Everyone I know goes away,   in the end
Am7                   Fadd9  C*             G         
And you could have it all,   my empire of dirt
Am7            Fadd9                  
I will let you down,   I will make you hurt
   Am7             Fadd9                 G
If I could start again, a million miles away
Am7             Fadd9 G (stop)         
I would keep myself, I would find a way.

  1. Very nice! It’d be great if you could line up the chords with the lyrics – ie: the chord for the first “I” should be Cmaj I believe, but the tab says Am from the intro 🙂

    Do you have any tips for someone looking to improve their chord changes?

    All the best!

    1. Thanks for the suggestion Kay Dee. I listened to the record and I really think it’s an Am though.

      To improve the chords changes, I would advise you to repeat the movements over and over. Slowly, at first, and then try to improve the speed. What’s important is to continue doing it until it’s done without effort and thinking. It’s also good to focus on one chord change at a time. For example Am to G. When the chord change is mastered, you can work on another one.
