[Intro]
Bm                                  D
This is the song I’m too scared to write 
Bm                           G
But some of you may need it tonight 

[Verse 1]
Bm                  G
Oh there you were, heart made of glass 
Bm                     D
fragile little thing, shattered too fast 
Bm                       G
tried to pick the pieces up up up 
Bm                               D
and that’s the way you first got cut cut cut 
Bm                     G
Devil drew you in, you didn’t let it show 
Bm                        D
didn’t want the others to ever have to know 
Bm                              G
that you were getting hooked on up up up 
Bm                        D
and all you had to do was cut cut cut 

[Chorus]
    G                A              Bm
You carved a special place for your pain 
   G               A              Bm
so it came back to hurt you every night 
    G                    A             Bm
you closed your eyes and wished it all away 
G            A                  Bm
until you disappeared under the knife 

[Verse 2]
Bm                 G
You knew the deal, no one gives a damn 
     Bm                     D
just another needy kid, sob story in hand 
Bm                        G
keep your secrets covered up up up 
Bm                    D
we don’t need another cut cut cut 
Bm                      G
But you couldn’t hide a heart made of glass 
Bm                              D
You put yourself together with all the strength you had 
Bm                   G
You were finally fed up up up 
Bm                     D
finally had to scream enough –nough –nough

[Chorus]
    G                A              Bm
You carved a special place for your pain 
   G               A              Bm
so it came back to hurt you every night 
    G                    A             Bm
you closed your eyes and wished it all away 
G            A                  Bm
until you disappeared under the knife 

[Rap part]
Bm                        G
Listen- I know it’s simplified from the other side 
A                       Em
it’s easy to gloss over all the messy reasons why 
Bm                  G
and it’s easy to forget where you’ve been 
  A                                   Em
I guess that’s what the scars are for, huh? 
     Bm                     G
When we were 15 we wouldn’t dare let that shit be seen 
A                    Em
but now it seems mutalation’s gone mainstream 
Bm                     G
I see you at my shows, scarred up from head to toe 
A                          Em
like there’s no point even trying not to let it show 
Bm                      G
Cause we all know, emo kids like to hurt themselves 
A                     Em
too many feelings and not enough self control 
Bm                         G
and I mean, does this mess any of the rest of you 
A                          Em
it’s an epidemic and we’re cool with it, don’t question it 
       Bm                              G
But it bothers me, our scars are currency by which we’re measured 
      A                             Em
like let the record show who let it slip and who held it together 
Bm                      G
cutters and burners and honorable mentions 
A                              F#m
posers who still cut themselves up for the attention 
G                               A
I don’t care your intentions, I just want you to know 
   Bm
my self-hatred never took me where I wanted to go 
G                                     A
and at the end of the day, you know I still had to face 
           Bm
that I can pick at the pain, but can’t cut it away 
                  G                           A
and you know what else I can’t do is give you ten good reasons not to 
     Bm
I’ve racked my brain for clever sayings of all the things you ought to do 
G                                   A
But you know, I think if there was something I could say 
            Bm
They’d have thrown it on a brochure- and sent you on your way 

(N/C)
So I’ll keep doing what I always do: drag my heart to the piano and make it sing for you 
I’ll keep doing what I always do: drag my heart to the piano and let it sing for you 

G  A  Bm x3
G  A

Drag my heart to the piano and let it sing for you

most of it correct i spotted a few mistakes. the D in the verses is not correct, it should be G, and F#m in the rap is Em. and the piano part seems like it could also be done G A F#m Em, but G A Bm still sounds ok.
