FF chord                      BbBb chord
Help me, it's like the walls are caving in
    DmDm chord
Sometimes I feel like giving up
    BbBb chord                           FF chord
But I just can't, it isn't in my blood

Verse 1:
                                              BbBb chord
Laying on the bathroom floor, feeling nothing

I'm overwhelmed and insecure
                  DmDm chord
Give me something

Just have a drink and you'll feel better
                                   BbBb chord
Just take her home and you'll feel better
                             DmDm chord
Keep telling me that it gets better
        BbBb chord
Does it ever?

No medicine is strong enough

I'm crawling in my skin
    DmDm chord
Sometimes I feel like giving up

Looking through my phone again feeling anxious
                                      DmDm chord
Afraid to be alone again, I hate this
                                         BbBb chord
I'm trying to find a way to chill, can't breathe, oh

Is there somebody that could help me?

  11. Omg the Bb chord will be the death of me. I can’t seem to get it rightttt! Ah!

    • you can try barring the first fret with you index finger and then using your middle finger for the 3rd string and ring finger for the 4th string. Hope that helps!

  12. Does anyone have suggestions for the strumming pattern for each verse and the chorus??

      if you listen to the last instrumental part of the song it has a guitar part that I based the strumming pattern on, but I also kinda improvised a little when it slows down and stuff. Just feel the music.

  13. For the strumming pattern if you listen to the song it sound like there just strumming down and four counts for each chord
