Intro: C  G/C  Fadd9/C  F/C x4

       C               G/C      Fadd9/C     F/C
When I saw him last he had that look in his eyes
           C                   G/C        Fadd9/C  F/C
I said, "Do you need to talk?", he said, "No."
      C                       G/C         Fadd9/C   F/C
So I called him up, asked him again and I waited a while
    C                      G/C        Fadd9/C  F/C
he began to speak, then he started to cry

          Am             G          F 
You know some things are best left unspoken
    Am                G          F 
and some things just never work out
          C                      G/C        Fadd9/C   F/C
Sometimes, seems you try and you try and whatever you do
           C                          G/C           Fadd9/C  F/C
There's a fix that you're in, and you just can't get out

         Am  F    Am   G       Am  G   F  
He said, "I need your help, I need it now
Am   F  Am    G            C
Give me the strength to go on"

Though I didn't know what I knew that something was wrong
He still had his pride, he'd tell me in time
Well this feeling inside kept eating at me
I was losing a friend, and I had to know why
 
When I heard the voice on the phone, I knew it was bad news
So I rushed to be by his side
And we said goodbye for the last time
I gently hugged him, and kissed him goodbye

He whispered, "I need your help, I need it now.
Give me the strength to go on."

                F/C                      Cadd9
We were always laughing, I just remember laughing, mama
                F
We were always laughing
 
Oh I need your help, I need it now
Give me the strength to go on

Db  Ab/Db  F#add9/Db  F#/Db x2

          Db          Ab/Db   F#add9/Db  F#/Db
Though as time goes by, and it all becomes clear
       Db           Ab/Db         F#add9/Db  F#/Db
We can see the deceit, we see the lies
      Db                   Ab/Db      F#add9/Db  F#/Db
So I asked myself, over and over, and over again
Db                  Ab/Db        F#add9/Db  F#/Db
What did they know? What did they hide?

Bbm    Ab                    F#
Fools, leading the innocent blindly
Bbm     Ab     F#
Fools, turning away
 
And I know that when I think of my friend with that look in his eyes
And if they told the truth, he might be here today

Bbm F# Bbm   Ab     Bbm  Ab F#
I need your help, I need it now
     Bbm  F# Bbm  Ab            Db
Just give me the strength to go on
               Bbm                       Ab       F#add9
I remember the laughing, We were always laughing  
                                   Db  Ab/Db  F#add9/Db  F#/Db
Oh no, it's just strength we need now

Just the strength to go on...
