n.C.    Am7       Em
It's a choice to stay
         Am7            Em
It's a dream & I wanna wake 
         Cmaj7                                 Em
You have blood on your hands and I'm feeling faint 
      Am7                   B7
And honey You can't decide 
Am7                            Em
I'm a drug Ya don't wanna give up 
                 Am7               Em
Smoke your cigarettes Make your love 
             Cmaj7                               Em
You poured blood in my heart and I can't get enough 
     Am7                                    B7
I'm drowning, drowning and you can't decide  

It's not about geography, or happenstance 

you need to fly, & take a chance 
           Em*            Eb/Em
You don't need to soar to emptiness 
           Em*            Eb/Em        Am7
Float on high, & forever dance alone 
Youre scared, scared, scared 
                        Am7   Em
cuz I feel like home  

Am7    Em (couple times)

Am7                         Em
Hear your voice Knew right away 
Am7                             Em
If you were here your eyes would say 
           Cmaj7                         Em
There is blood on my feet as I'm walking away 
Am7                              B7
Rivers are red Its starting to rain 

I'm not gonna live for you or die for you 

Won't do anything anymore for you 
           Em*            Eb/Em
Cuz you leave me here on the other side 
           Em*            Eb/Em
You leave me here on the other side 

(repeat 3 times) 

     G                   Em
Not gonna shed one more tear for you 
 G              Em
shed one more tear for you 
                G             Em
I'm not gonna shed one more tear for you 

At least not til Sunday Afternoon 
Sunday Afternoon 
   G     Em (couple times)

Thank you for finding out the chords! Your tab is right, but I think the notation for the chord ist Em/D# (An Em with D# on the bass). Ciao :)
