Verse:
BbBb chord             FF chord         GmGm chord                 EbEb chord
I gave all my oxygen to people that could breath
   BbBb chord           FF chord             GmGm chord             EbEb chord
I gave away my money and now we don't even speak
  BbBb chord               FF chord                    GmGm chord      FF chord       EbEb chord
I drove miles and miles, but would you do the same for me?
   BbBb chord  FF chord  BbBb chord
Oh ho-o-onestly


BbBb chord              FF chord                 GmGm chord           EbEb chord
Offered off my shoulder just for you to cry upon
BbBb chord                 FF chord             GmGm chord               EbEb chord
Gave you constant shelter and a bed to keep you warm
BbBb chord                FF chord                  GmGm chord     FF chord      EbEb chord 
They gave me the heartache and in return I gave a song
         BbBb chord     FF chord    BbBb chord
Its goes o-o-on and on 

Chorus:
EbEb chord                 BbBb chord             FF chord               BbBb chord
Life can get you down so I just numb the way it feels
  EbEb chord               BbBb chord                FF chord       FF chord         GmGm chord
I drown it with a drink and out of date prescription pills
    EbEb chord                  FF chord                GmGm chord      FF chord      EbEb chord
And all the ones that love me they just left me on the shelf
           C7C7 chord
My farewell
            Cm7Cm7 chord                     Cm7Cm7 chord BbBb chord   EbEb chord   FF chord   BbBb chord
So before I save someone else, I've got to save myself

Verse:
  BbBb chord               FF chord            GmGm chord             EbEb chord
I gave you all my energy and I took away your pain
       BbBb chord                FF chord           GmGm chord         EbEb chord
'Cause human beings are destined to radiate or drain
 BbBb chord              FF chord                      GmGm chord      FF chord         EbEb chord
What line do we stand upon 'cause from here it looks the same?
    BbBb chord     FF chord      BbBb chord
And only scars remain

Chorus:
EbEb chord                 BbBb chord             FF chord               BbBb chord
Life can get you down so I just numb the way it feels
  EbEb chord               BbBb chord                FF chord       FF chord        GmGm chord
I drown it with a drink and out of date prescription pills
    EbEb chord                  FF chord                GmGm chord      FF chord      EbEb chord
And all the ones that love me they just left me on the shelf
           C7C7 chord
My farewell
            Cm7Cm7 chord                     Cm7Cm7 chord BbBb chord   EbEb chord   FF chord   BbBb chord
So before I save someone else, I've got to save myself

Bridge:
         GmGm chord                  EbEb chord
But if I don't, then I'll go back
                BbBb chord
To where I'm rescuing a stranger
        FF chord                                  GmGm chord
Just because they needed saving just like that
              EbEb chord
Oh, I'm here again
            BbBb chord
Between the devil and the danger
       FF chord
But I guess it's just my nature
            EbEb chord
My dad was wrong
                        FF chord
'Cause I'm not like my mum
                   GmGm chord               FF chord            EbEb chord
'Cause she'd just smile and I'm complaining in a song
       C7C7 chord
But it helps
            Cm7Cm7 chord                     Cm7Cm7 chord BbBb chord   EbEb chord   FF chord   BbBb chord
So before I save someone else, I've got to save myself

Chorus:
EbEb chord                 BbBb chord             FF chord               BbBb chord
Life can get you down so I just numb the way it feels
  EbEb chord               BbBb chord                FF chord       FF chord        GmGm chord
I drown it with a drink and out of date prescription pills
    EbEb chord                  FF chord                GmGm chord      FF chord      EbEb chord
And all the ones that love me they just left me on the shelf
           C7C7 chord
My farewell
            Cm7Cm7 chord                     Cm7Cm7 chord BbBb chord   EbEb chord   FF chord   BbBb chord
So before I save someone else, I've got to save myself
             Cm7Cm7 chord                      Cm7Cm7 chord BbBb chord   EbEb chord   FF chord   BbBb chord
And before I blame someone else, I've got to save myself
             Cm7Cm7 chord                     Cm7Cm7 chord BbBb chord   EbEb chord   FF chord   BbBb chord

    @Elissa i just do one xtrum for each chord

  13. arianatheunicorn

    instead of doing playing D on the word ‘prescription’ you could play a b7 (4310). Its cooler and more like the actual song
