Me Vs. the World - Madina Lake - From Them, Through Us, To You

This is my favorite track off of Madina Lake's "From Them, Through Us, To You" album.
loud, fast, and a lot of fun to play.  I hope you enjoy.  If you don't have the album, go
it, and even better go see these guys live.  Their shows are wicked.

I'm not sure how Madina Lake plays this song, but I play with standard tuning on the
guitar and pick around on the chords.  On the electric I use drop D and play mostly power
on the bottom 3 strings.  There are a few parts where the lyrics overlap (too many 
not enough beats) but I tried to keep it as easy to follow as I could.  Follow along
the song a few times to get the flow and rythmn down if you need.  This is pretty easy song.

Thanks,
WiLL

***** Verse 1 *****
Dm                     F
Sometimes I try not to hate myself
                 Bb                       C
For everything I never said when you were here
       Dm             F
And so I'm burning up photographs
              Bb                            C
Of what was a perfect past 'cause I'm still here

***** Chorus *****
                       F                  Gm
But I'm barely holding on, where did I go wrong
               Bb                            C
Choking on the difference between me and the world
                           F                   Gm
And ever since you've been gone I've been torn apart
                      Bb                    C
I know that you can't hear me but I'm still hurt
                    Dm
And I wish you were here

***** Verse 2 *****
Dm                         F
It's so hard that I try to bury it
                 Bb                        C
Pretend that you didn't exist, so I can be strong
           Dm               F
But I feel sick, and I feel diseased
                 Bb                           C
'Cause everyone abandons me, and I can't move along

***** Chorus *****
                         F                  Gm
Cause I'm barely holding on, where did I go wrong
               Bb                            C
Choking on the difference between me and the world
                           F                   Gm
And ever since you've been gone I've been torn apart
                      Bb                    C
I know that you can't hear me but I'm still hurt
                    Dm
And I wish you were here

***** Break *****
Bb                    C      D
I can not pretend you didn't exist
Bb               C        D
Misery is just a state of mind
Bb                         C      D
Hiding from the world's no way to live
Bb                           C       D
So I'll convince myself that I'll be fine
F          D
   I'll be fine
    Bb                   C
But since I lost you I'm barely holding on

***** Chorus *****
                         F                  Gm
Cause I'm barely holding on, where did I go wrong
               Bb                            C
Choking on the difference between me and the world
                           F                   Gm
And ever since you've been gone I've been torn apart
                      Bb                    C
I know that you can't hear me but I'm still hurt
                    F
So I look up to the stars
               Gm
And wonder out loud
                 Bb
Why everything I had in life
                   C
Has fallen from my arms
                       F
Can you even hear this song?
                     Gm
I'm screaming at the clouds
               Bb
Screaming to a galaxy
                    C
That never cared at all
                Dm
That I need you here
