Intro FM7, Em7, Am4, C* (x2) .... FM7*, EmM6, Am4, C (x2)

  [strum on 6/8 rhythm]
FM7                         Em7             Am4            C
And it came to me then that every plan is a tiny prayer to father time
     FM7                       Em7      Am4                C
As I stared at my shoes in the ICU that reeked of piss and 409

  [strum once, then to pick]
      FM7                       Em7                     Am4               
And I rationed my breathes as I said to myself that I'd already taken 
too much today

        FM7                    Em7            Am4             C*
As each descending peak of the LCD took you a little farther away from me

 FM7*         EmM6     Am4       C     (x2)
Away from me

  [strum once, then to pick...still]
            FM7                          Em7             Am4
Amongst the vending machines and year-old magazines in a place where we 
only say goodbye
                FM7                   Em7                  Am4           C*
It stung like a violent wind that our memories depend on a faulty camera in our minds
                FM7*                     EmM6                     Am4    
But I knew that you were a truth I would rather lose than to have never 
lain beside at all
      FM7                      Em7                       Am4     C*
And I looked around at all the eyes on the ground as the TV entertained itself

  [strum on 6/8 rhythm]
       Dm                F               Am     Em
'Cause there's no comfort in the waiting room
     Dm             F                Am    Em
Just nervous pacers bracing for bad news
             Dm                    Am                        Am    Em
And then the nurse comes round and everyone will lift their heads
        Dm               FM3(A,Ab,G,Gb,F)              Am               
But I'm thinking of what Sarah said              that "Love is watching 
FM3  cccc.....
someone die"

C**  cccc....  x2      FM7  cccc....  x2  

   FM7  cccc....                  FM7 cccc... 
So who's going to watch you die?..

  [strum once, then to pick]
