For this song, please only utilise power chords, as in using the 4th, 5th and 6th 
strings (apart from the D Eb D sections, their requiring the use of the 3rd, 4th 
and 5th strings); otherwise, it will become extremely hard to switch chords, as 
this song is in truth, QUITE HARD.

Tune down to C: (this is able to be played on both classical and electric 
guitars...good luck to the former guitarist, though XD; I know thy pain)

Verse:

C                           Eb F C
You walk on like a woman in suffering
C                       Eb F C Eb C
Won't even bother now to tell me why
C                                 Eb F       Eb
You come alone, letting all of us savour the moment,
F       G  D Eb D
Leaving me broken another time,
C                             Eb F C
You come on, like a blood-stained hurricane,
C               Eb F C Eb C
Leave me alone, let me be this time,

That I am stricken and can't let you go,
Ab                Eb               F    Db
When the heart is cold, there's no hope and we
C     Eb Ab
Know,
Ab        C  Eb Ab             C  Eb Ab
That I am crippled by all that you've done,

Verse:

You don't know what your power has done to me
C                    Eb F C Eb C
I want to know if I'll heal inside
C                                  Eb F  Eb  
I can't go on with a holocaust about to happen
F          G     D     Eb D
Seeing you laughing another time
C                                  Eb F C
You'll never know why your face has haunted me
C                 Eb F C Eb C
My very soul has to bleed this time
C                              Eb    F    Eb
Another hole in the wall of my inner defenses
Eb      F   G             D   Eb  D
Leaving me breathless, the reason I

Chorus:

C     Eb Ab
Know,

When the heart is cold, there's no hope and we
C     Eb Ab
Know,
Ab        C  Eb Ab      Bb       C  Eb Ab
That I am crippled by all that you've done,
