Capo on 4th Fret Please rate and leave a comment

[Verse]

   Em
I awoke
    C            G
Only to find my lungs empty
   Em            
And through the night
     C               G
So it seems I'm not breathing
      Em                  C               G
And now my dreams are nothing like they were meant to be
      Em                  C               G 
And I'm breaking down, I think I'm breaking down


     Em
And I'm afraid
     C             G
To sleep because of what haunts me
      Em
Such as living with the uncertainty
        C        G
That I'll never find the words to say
  Em           C         G
Which would completely explain
  Em           C     G
Just how I'm breaking down


[Chorus]

    D                      Em            C
Someone come and, someone come and save my life
    D                Em      C
Maybe I'll sleep when I am dead
    D                    Em             C
But now it's like the night is taking sides
    D                   Em                 C
With all the worries that occupy the back of my mind
 D                 Em         C
Could it be this misery will suffice?


[Verse]

[Gordon Downie]
      Em
I've become
         C           G
A simple souvenir of someone's kill
       Em
And like the sea
        C              G
I'm constantly changing from calm to ill
     Em                        C                      G 
Madness fills my heart and soul as if the great divide could swallow me whole
    Em
oh, how I'm breaking down


[Chorus]

oooohhh my life
    D                     Em             C
Someone come and, someone come and save my life (save my life)
    D                     Em             C
Someone come and, someone come and save my life (save my life)
    D                     Em              C
Someone come and, someone come and save my life
     D         Em          C
Could it be this misery will suffice?

I think with the chords for this part:
Em
Such as living with the uncertainty
C G
That I'll never find the words to say
Em C G
Which would completely explain
Em C G
Just how I'm breaking down

sound better like this (at least for singing)

Em C G
Such as living with the uncertainty
Em C
That I'll never find the words to say
G Em
Which would completely explain

shouldn't be played with a capo. sounds much better w/o one and matches the song.
