G Cadd9

[Verse 1]
G
What - could you hope to achieve
When I'm cryin' and you know why
Cadd9
How - do you find your reasons
     G
In my deepest, darknest night
Em7                 Cadd9
  I keep givin' you up

G
   I remember when
         Cadd9
You were my only friend
      G
Now I'm not - sure you can
      Cadd9
Feel like that again
Em7                 Cadd9
  I keep givin' you up

[Chorus]
G
    And my
                        Cadd9
You know my mind's made up this time
                 Em7 
There's no goin' back to find
        Cadd9
What we had
           G
  And I know
                     Cadd9
There's no light here left to shine
                     Em7
There's no wrong when there's no right
   Cadd9
So enough
               G
I'm givin' you up

[Verse 2]
Cadd9         G
       All the things that you said
Well you seem to forget
        Cadd9
They're surroundin' my head
      G
Every night

G
And there's a battle within
     Cadd9
That I'll never win
            G 
'Cause it's me that I'm up against
        Cadd9
It's my heart versus common sense
Em7              Cadd9
  Can I give you up

[Chorus]
G
And my
                        Cadd9
You know my mind's made up this time
                 Em7 
There's no goin' back to find
        Cadd9
What we had
           G
  And I know
                     Cadd9
There's no light here left to shine
                     Em7
There's no wrong when there's no right
   Cadd9
So enough
               Em7 Cadd9 D Cadd9
I'm givin' you up

[Verse 3]
Em7   Cadd9  D  Cadd9
Strip the    layers
Em7  Cadd9  D  Cadd9
Make me     better
Em7  Cadd9 D   Cadd9
Help me    get out   clean

Em7 Cadd9 D Cadd9

Em7  Cadd9  D  Cadd9
Show your   colors
Em7  Cadd9    D Cadd9
 I'm slippin' under
Em7  Cadd9 D       Cadd9    G
Help me    through this   please

[Chorus]
Cadd9     G
       And my
                        Cadd9
You know my mind's made up this time
                 Em7 
There's no goin' back to find
        Cadd9
What we had
          G
  And I know
                     Cadd9
There's no light here left to shine
                     Em7
There's no wrong when there's no right
   Cadd9
So enough
               G
I'm givin' you up

[Outro]
Cadd9 
     Yeah
G              Cadd9
     My mind's made up
     G
Yeah yeah
               Cadd9
I'm givin' you up
                G
I'm givin' you up

Hey! Awesome chords! Thanks a bunch! I noticed a few incorrect chords though. I'll place the corrections below.

BRIDGE:
Em7 Cadd9 D/F#m G
I'm givin' you up

Em7 Cadd9 D/F#m G
Strip the lay - ers

Em7 Cadd9 D/F#m G
Make me be - tter

Em7 Cadd9 D/F#m G
Help me get out

Em7 Cadd9 D/F#m G
clean

Em7 Cadd9 D/F#m G
Show your co - lors

Em7 Cadd9 D/F#m G
I'm slippin' un - der

Em7 Cadd9 D/F#m G
Help me through this

Em7 Cadd9
please

(these two chords - Em7, Cadd9 -hold for 4 picks, rather than two, and then head into final time through the chorus)

AFTER FINAL TIME THROUGH CHORUS:

G
I'm givin' you up

Cadd9
Yeah
Em7 Cadd9
My mind's made up
G
Yeah yeah
Cadd9
I'm givin' you up
Em7
I'm givin' you up
Cadd9 G ~
Yeah I'm givin' you up

Could someone explain the picking part? I don't quite understand.
