Am~
I don't have a lot of prospects
         G~
That can give some kind of peace
         Am~
There is nothing left to cling to
         G~
That can bring me sweet release
          F5      C
I have no fear of drowning
         G
It's the breathing
       Am
That's taking all this work

Chorus 1 (Palm Muted)
       F5
Do you know
       G5           A5
What I mean, when I say,
         B         F5
"I don't wanna be alone"
       G5           A5  
What I mean, when I say
         B
"I don't wanna be alone”

Interlude - Same as Int.2

Verse 2 - Same as V.1
Empty spaces
Shadows hit by streetlights
The warning signs and weight
Of tired conversations
In the absence of a shoulder
In the absence of a thief
On the brink of this destruction
On the eve of bittersweet
Now all the demons look like prophets
And I'm living out
Am              G
Every word they speak
Am              G
Every word they speak

Chorus 2 (Palm Muted)
F5 G5 A5 A5
       F5
Do you know
       G5           A5
What I mean, when I say,
         B         F5
"I don't wanna be alone"
       G5           A5  
What I mean, when I say
         B         F5 
"I don't wanna be alone”
       G5           A5
What I mean, when I say,
         B
"I don't wanna be alone"

Good tabs seems Acc. But on the Verses and the Bridge I think they use some bending
