Verse 1

 D                               C      
you'll rescue me right? in the exact same way they never did
 D                                       C 
I'll be happy right? when your healing powers kick in


 D                                          C
you'll complete me right? then my life can finally begin
 D                                     C
I'll be worthy right? only when you realize the gem I am

    
 D                   G       C           D  
but this won't work now the way it once did
 D               G      C                   D       
and I won't keep it up even though I would love to
 D                  G          C           D   
once I know who I'm not then I'll know who I am
 D                  G         C           D      
but I know I won't keep on playing the victim


Chorus 1
                  C             G
these precious illusions in my head
                 D                   C
did not let me down when I was defenseless
                  G
and parting with them is like
         F                     D        
parting with invisible best friends


Verse 2
 D                                  C
this ring will help me yet as will you knight in shining armor
 D                                        C
this pill will help me yet as will these boys gone though like water


 D                      G           C           D
but this won't work as well as the way it once did
 D              G              C            D
cuz I want to decide between survival and bliss
 D                        G        C                  D       
and though I know who I'm not I still don't know  who I am
 D                   G       C          D
but I know I won't keep on playing the victim


Chorus 2
                  C             G 
these precious illusions in my head
                 D               C
did not let me down when I was a kid
                   G
and parting with them is like
          F                    D
parting with childhood best friends


Interlude

 C             Bb             F       D  
I've spent so long firmly looking outside me

 C             Bb          F        A
I've spent so much time living in survival mode


Verse 3
 
 D                      G           C           D
but this won't work as well as the way it once did
 D              G              C            D
cuz I want to decide between survival and bliss
 D                        G        C                  D       
and though I know who I'm not I still don't know  who I am
 D                   G       C          D
but I know I won't keep on playing the victim


Chorus 3
                  C             G
these precious illusions in my head
                 D                   C
did not let me down when I was defenseless
                  G
and parting with them is like
         F                     D        
parting with invisible best friends

                  C             G 
these precious illusions in my head
                 D               C
did not let me down when I was a kid
                   G
and parting with them is like
          F                    D
parting with childhood best friends
