It could be worse
I could be alone
I could be locked in here on my own
Like a stone that suddenly drops
It never stops, no
I could be lost,
Or I could be saved,
Calling out from beneath the waves
Beaten down by this ocean rain
Never again,
Never again

It could be worse
Bitter or sweet
It could be snapped from the jaws of defeat
Like a light lit upon a beach
Wear your heart on your sleeve
Oh
You want to stop before you begin
You want to sink when you know you could swim
You want to stop just before you begin
Never give in
Never give in

just to help you, you don't need to call the chord B7sus4add9 that, you could just shorten it to B11(no3) or just B11
