Capo 1st fret

Intro: Am, C, F, C, C, C

Verse 1:
Am                C                                F
Sometimes life it takes you by the hair, pulls you down,
           C             C               C
Before you know it, it's gone and you're dead again.
Am                        C 
I've been in places and I won't pretend,
         F           C       C          C
That I'd make it out just to fall on my head.

Verse 2:
Am                          C
Which is strange I take the walk downstairs,
        F              C          C          C
Hit the pawn up on the corner and pay for my rent.
Am                        C
You know that I could not believe my own truth,
     F                C           C          C
Just show them what I choose, got nothing to lose.

Am                    C
Yeah, yeah and it's O.K.,
         F             C                C         C
I tie my hands up to a chair so I don't fall that way.
Am C
Yeah, yeah and I'm alright,
         F                C                 C       C
I took a sip of something poisoned but I'll hold on tight.

Instrumental: Am, C, F, C, C, C x2

Verse 3:
Am                           C
You know those days when you want to just choose,
       F          C        C            C
To not get out of bed, get lost in your head again.
Am                           C
You're playin' games but you kind of cut,
              F           C            
'Cause you're coming down hard
         C              C
and your joints are all stuck.

Verse 4:
Am                          C
I've tried to say that it's not the only way,
   F            C       C              C
I never knew if I could face myself to change.
Am                        C
You were impatient, I was insecure,
         F                 C           
Slip and fall, I'm dodging calls,
       C                C
In the prison I've been living in.

[Chorus] x2

Instrumental:  Am, C, F, C, C, C

[Chorus] x2

Am C F C C C
