Lyrics:

(Verse 1)
I’m gonna choke when it really counts
I’m gonna get kicked when I’m down
I’ll give you so much satisfaction you’ll drown in it, in it

(Verse 2)
I’m gonna trip at the highest speed,
Play so bad your ears will bleed
I’ll give you so much satisfaction you’ll need a rest—just to breathe

(Pre-Chorus)
And all this fighting will amount to nothing more
You bend to break, I did it before

(Chorus)
Is it gonna be easier
Is it gonna be more than I can take
If I surrender, if I surrender
Is it gonna be easier
Is it gonna be more than I can take
If I surrender, if I surrender

(Verse 3)
My heart breaks and I feel no pain
My voice cracks yet it’s still the same
I’ll give you so much satisfaction you’ll blame yourself for once

(Verse 4)
Apologize for what I never did
My darkest secrets and everything I hid
I’ll give you so much satisfaction you’ll quit your complaining
But I know you never will

(Pre-Chorus)
And all this fighting will amount to nothing more
You bend to break, I did it before

(Chorus)
Is it gonna be easier
Is it gonna be more than I can take
If I surrender, if I surrender
Is it gonna be easier
Is it gonna be more than I can take
If I surrender, if I surrender

(Bridge)
They took from you all they could get
You hold on tight to what is left (you’ll never give up like you used to)
They took from you all they could get
You hold on what did you expect (you’ll never give up like you used to)
You’ll never give up like you used to
You’ll never give up like you used to

(Chorus)
Is it gonna be easier
Is it gonna be more than I can take
If I surrender, if I surrender
Is it gonna be easier
Is it gonna be more than I can take
If I surrender, if I surrender

Is it gonna be easier (oh)
Easier Oh, will it amount to nothing more
You bend to break, just like before

(Verse 5)
I’m gonna choke When it really counts
I’m gonna get kicked when I’m down
I’ll give you so much satisfaction
When I surrender, I surrender to you.

Hey, this tab's like awesomely good.
You did a great job on this song.

But during the chorus, it sounds like there's a higher sounding bit being played. Possibly octaves an octave higher?
That or something.

Anyways. Awesome job.
*thumbs up*
