   Em
I awoke
C                G
Only to find my lungs empty
   G/F#             Em            
And through the night
     C              G
So it seems I'm not breathing
   G/F#        Em        C                       G
And now my dreams are nothing like they were meant to be
     G/F#             Em  C                       G 
And I'm breaking down, I think I'm breaking down


G/F#          Em
And I'm afraid
     C                    G      G/F# 
To sleep because of what haunts me
     Em C                 G       G/F# 
Such as living with the uncertainty
         Em             C
That I'll never find the words to say
            G            G/F# 
Which would completely explain
Em   C                       G   G/F#* Palm Muted 
       Just how I'm breaking down


GM                     Em            C
Someone come and, someone come and save my life
           GM                Em
Maybe I'll sleep when I am dead
                       C
But now it's like the night is taking sides
      GM                   Em           C
With all the worries that occupy the back of my mind
         GM          Em         C
Could it be this misery will suffice?




 G/F#      Em
I've become
  C                  G             G/F# 
A simple souvenir of someone's kill
             Em
And like the sea
    C                        G        G/F# 
I'm constantly changing from calm to ill
Em               C                        G      G/F#                     Em
Madness fills my heart and soul as if the great divide could swallow me whole
C                      G   
  oh, how I'm breaking down


GM                      Em            C
Someone come and, someone come and save my life
           GM               Em
Maybe I'll sleep when I am dead
                       C
But now it's like the night is taking sides
      GM                  Em           C
With all the worries that occupy the back of my mind
        GM         Em         C
Could it be this misery will suffice?
             


GM                     Em            C
Someone come and, someone come and save my life (save my life)
GM                      Em            C
Someone come and, someone come and save my life (save my life)
GM                      Em            C
Someone come and, someone come and save my life
         GM           Em         C
Could it be this misery will suffice?

It's not a Gminor, not even close. its a D rooted chord, ive seen it called a few things. its essentially a D though, just played like a C chord up two frets.

Really I'm pretty sure it's a C/G played 2 frets up as opposed to the C alone up to 2 frets. Either way though, the finger positioning shown sounds good.
