I Never Got to See the West Coast

Asus2       E          B
So is it courage or strength
        F5
and is that what I'm waiting for?
Asus2       E          B
If I could just kill myself
          F5
would it also kill the remorse?
Asus2         E        B
I wanted so badly to catch a break
         F5
but I'm only breaking down.
Asus2                 E
I'm still here and standing
            B
but if it's up to me
    F5                Asus2 E            B
I don't think I'll be         hanging around

Chorus
      E
The drink slips down my throat
         G#m
and the burn cures nice and slow.
         F5                                 B
All the worst parts I wouldn't want you to see
                       E
The only parts left of me

Now, here I am
        C#m
Just a kid without a better plan.
             Asus2                              F5
But it's the simple thoughts that haunt me the most.
    B
I never got to see the west coast.

Asus2, E, Asus2, E, B
Asus2, E, Asus2, E, B

Asus2      E                 B
Spent my nights just asking why
       F5
Would God let me become like this.
Asus2     E              B
Was it a joke from the start?
        F5 
Was I supposed to laugh more at it?
Asus2             E                          B
And everyone's quoting their teachers and preachers
           F5
but their words make me feel so alone.
Asus2    E~                    B~
No one ever says that they've had those thoughts
         F5
in the middle of the night.
Asus2~   E~                    B~
No one ever admits that they wanted to take their life.

Chorus
      E
The drink slips down my throat
         G#m
and the burn cures nice and slow.
         F5                                 B
All the worst parts I wouldn't want you to see
                       E
The only parts left of me

Now, here I am
        C#m
Just a kid without a better plan.
             Asus2                              F5
But it's the simple thoughts that haunt me the most.
    B
I never got to see the west coast.

Asus2, E, Asus2, E, B
Asus2, E, Asus2, E, B

              C#m
But it's the life I dreamed I have
      C
The love I find in my grasp
      B                         F5
The words I could share with someone.
         C#m
Those thoughts keep the breath in my lungs
        C
That tomorrow my hope will become
    B                               F5
fulfilled by a love that can't be undone.
    Asus2    E         B
And save a wretch like me.

Chorus
            E
So if the drink slips down your throat
         G#m
and the burn cures nice and slow.
         F5                                  B   
All the worst parts you wouldn't want me to see.
                          E
The same parts, I have in me
                           C#m
Now, scares me too we are both this way.
                    Asus2
I feel just like you do.
                                        B
But when you're by yourself you should know

One day we got to see the west coast. 

Asus2, E, Asus2, E, B, End on Asus2

I realize this isn't how Toby plays it on the album, but the chords WORK so, I'd appreciate it if you rated it more than 3 stars for goodness' sake.

Good tab, but you can play F#m instead of f5
