Reassure me Why do I feel as if I'm in too deep Now I've been praying 
                              *                                *

Oh unholy day If I leave now I might get away Oh, but this weighs on me 
                         *
As heavy as stone and as blue as I go

Ah ha ah ah From that fool's mistake and now forever pay No, run 
                    *
I will run and I'll be okay

To Bury the past for I don't want to pay  Oh, how I wish this 
                              *
To turn back the clock and do over again

Riff 2 is played during the verses. I put a * above the place in the lyrics where the Gm chord is played. And I just now realized the voicing should be 31x3xx for the Gm chord. It is very difficult to play and sing this song. You just have to keep at it until you've got it.
