just to hear a voice.

when i didn't know you yet,
D#         Bb   A5 Bb      C  C-9
things i'd have to forget.
F               G

    Bb       E          F
i'm tired of wasting my breath
D#       Bb  A5      Bb      C  C-9
carrying on, getting upset.

D              E7sus4
maybe i have a problem,
    G6                         D
but thats not what i wanted to say.

just to march in my place
      D#      Bb A5            Bb  C  C9
but a dead enemy screams in my face
F               G
but i better be quiet now,
    Bb       E          F
i'm tired of wasting my breath

G6                         D

                  A7sus4

I can't take credit for any of this. All I did was clean it up and post it here. It 
be helpful if you could tell me if anything's wrong with this.
Thanks.
