Verse 1:
F#m
I try to sleep, but my eyes are open
A
I can't think cause my heart is broken
D
And there's a bottle right next to me
E
I'll down a few drinks just to take the pain away
F#m
I wanna say all the things I need to say
A
I won't lie, I'll just tell them honestly
D
If God can take a friend away from me
E
Then I can say all I want and he won't do anything

Pre-chorus 1:
F#m                      D
My tongue is weak and every time I try to speak 
            A          E
I can't say nothing at all

Sleep well, my friend

There will be another moment we'll meet again, just let it go
F#m          D

You're something to remember

E
In the city that you love, now Atlanta's just a burial ground

Pre-chorus 2:

A                       D
All the stained pieces, I can't believe this
  F#m                            E
A mother shouldn't witness her son die at twenty-four
(Please don't know this is for the hopeless,
It's ripping me apart and I can't take it anymore)
F#m             D                         A
I will hold my tongue for the rest of my life

I can't keep this up anymore

Hey, thanks for time, this is my first tab,
let me know what you think and if you have 
any suggestions or if there's anything you 
need help with I'd happy be to provide it, 
just post a comment or send an email to 
Dakota2154@gmail.com. 

This is a really great song and I wish you 
all the best luck in learning it, buy the 
cd it's freaking amazing.:D
Ps. For beginners the chords of this song 
can also be played with the capo on 2 using 
Em, G, C, D. You can use the transpose button
and go "Down 2 Half Steps" then all the chords
become relative to the Capo, enjoy:D 

Edit: Bridge, Chorus 1 picking, added F major to Chorus 3.
