A2
It's time I said this
                                                 F#m
But I'm so choked up and I need my sanity
       D2                                E                             A2
I'm scared, believe me, you can see me smile if you let me just stick around.

A2
Well this is bye-bye baby
                                     F#m
It isn't like a sudden stop on a freight train
     D2                               E                             A2
If you're not happy and you hurt this much, then let me just stick around.

                  D2                                          E
But can I have one second of your time?
                                       D2
If I don't it'll drive me crazy.
                                                    E
As I drop to my knees and scream,
I hate you more than you could know.

A2     
I hope you fall into the ocean
E                                                  E/F                                F#m
And the current leaves you helpless, swimming around
                                      E             D2              E
As the waves crash over you until you drown. 
(And fall away..)
A2
And hold a funeral for nothing
E                                            E/F                               F#m
And celebrate how empty love can be broken
                      E                      D2                 E                   A2
It takes the sea to put you six feet happily underground

A2
Now it's back to reality 
                                              F#m
I'm up in shambles but I guess that's how I should be
                                                          D2                               E
I knew the wedding bells were ringing well, but my bride was missing.

                                     A2
It's not supposed to hurt this much
                                                   F#m
But when someone slowly breaks it off
                                            D2                           E                  A2
It tends to leave a bitter taste, a scar, that slowly rips apart.

               D2                                         E
Could I have one second of your time?
                                       D2
If I don't, it'll drive me crazy.
                                                    E
As I drop to my knees and scream, 
I hate you more than you could know.


A2     
I hope you fall into the ocean
E                                                  E/F                                F#m
And the current leaves you helpless, swimming around
                                      E             D2              E
As the waves crash over you until you drown. 
(And fall away..)
A2
And hold a funeral for nothing
E                                            E/F                               F#m
And celebrate how empty love can be broken
                      E                      D2                 E                   A2
It takes the sea to put you six feet happily underground

F#m  D2
               F#m    D2
Underground..

F#m
I've had enough, but it's all for the best.
E
I need to get a few things off my chest.
C#m   
There's got to be another way I can say it,
           D2                 E
But to get it right, I have to think straight.
F#m
Hope he tastes like the way I used to taste.
E                                                                  C#m
I can't believe I'd even say this to you now.
             D2              E           A2
When you won't listen at all.

A2     
I hope you fall into the ocean
E                                                  E/F                                F#m
And the current leaves you helpless, swimming around
                                      E                     D2              E
As the waves crash over you and over you until you drown. 
A2
And hold a funeral for nothing
E                                            E/F                               F#m
And celebrate how empty love can be broken
                      E                      D2                 E                  
It takes the sea to put you six feet happily underground
F#m             E                       D2                Dm                 A2
It takes the sea to put you six feet happily underground.

Could you please fix the placement of the chords? Thank you!

Lack of accuracy. Clearly wrong. the chords sound nothing like they are supposed to and when played sound even worse together than they do individually

Aside from the odd chord placements, if you can figure out the timing, it sounds pretty good!
