City And Colour - Sleeping Sickness
                                           Dadd4(9) = x54030
Intro   Em    |   C |G    |   D/F#||x2


Verse 1
   Em            C           G
I awoke only to find my lungs empty
      D/F#       Em            
And through the night
            C          G
So it seems I'm not breathing
    D/F#     Em                C              G
And now my dreams are nothing like they were meant to be
         D/F#     Em                C        G 
And I'm breaking down, I think I'm breaking down

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


Chorus
Dadd4(9)          Em                C
Someone come and, someone come and save my life
            Dadd4(9)           Em      
Maybe I'll sleep when I am dead 
                       C
But now it's like the night is taking sides
    Dadd4(9)              Em          C
With all the worries that occupy the back of my mind
        Dadd4(9)      Em             C
Could it be this misery will suffice?


Int   Em    |   C |G    |   D/F#||x2


Verse 2  [Gordon Downie]
(D/F#)  Em               C          G
I've become a simple souvenir of someone's kill
    D/F#     Em                  C            G          D/F#
And like the sea I'm constantly changing from calm to ill
 Em                         C              G                 D/F#
Madness fills my heart and soul as if the great divide could swallow me whole
    Em       C         G    D/F#  N.C.
Oh, how I'm breaking down



Chorus
Dadd4(9)          Em                C
Someone come and, someone come and save my life
           Dadd4(9)           Em      
Maybe I'll sleep when I am dead 
                       C
But now it's like the night is taking sides
     Dadd4(9)             Em         C
With all the worries that occupy the back of my mind
        Dadd4(9)      Em            C
Could it be this misery will suffice?
            Dadd4(9)
Ooohhh my life


Solo (Dadd4(9)) |Em   |C    |       ||x4

      Em     |   C |G    |   D/F#|
      Em     |   C |G    |   D/F# N.C. ||



Outro
Dadd4(9)           Em                C
Someone come and, someone come and save my life (save my life)
Dadd4(9)           Em                C
Someone come and, someone come and save my life (save my life)
Dadd4(9)           Em                C
Someone come and, someone come and save my life
Dadd4(9)              Em           C
Could it be this misery will suffice?
