SONG:   Help, I'm Alive
ARTIST: Metric
ALBUM:  (pre-release)
TUNING: eBGDAE (standard)


  I tremble
  They're gonna eat me alive
  If I stumble
  They're gonna eat me alive
  Can you hear my heart


(0:36) - Honestly, I can't tell what the hell guitar is playing here. But the note's a G.

  If you're still alive,

  I get whatever I need
  While my blood's still flowing
  And my heart still beats

(3:04) - It sounds like he goes up another octave and plays around a little bit near

Thank you kane5187
I think the song is in Gm with the verse progression being Bb, Cm, Gm, Eb on each line of the lyrics (so repeated 4 times)
