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

it be cool if you (or someone else) could tab the little solo the lead guitarist plays at the near end... the intro doesnt seem right since it appears they play a number of chords but ill check yours out and see what its like

I agree with most of the chords here, but I hear a G instead of a C as the first chord in the 2 lines of the interlude.

I like to play one of these instead of C, sounds a bit dirtier, which I like:


F :|--3------0--|
C :|--3------3--|
G#:|--0------0--|
D#:|--2------2--|
A#:|--3------3--|
F :|------------|
