**Now in verse 2 it has the same pattern like the chorus he just added a little plucking,

**In  the 2nd chorus he now strums the chords while still making a percussive sound
at least until "I'm without your kisses" before fully strumming.

[Chorus]

              Am7                        G
You watch me bleed until I can't breathe
                C                
I'm shaking, falling onto my knees
F              Am7                  G
And now that I'm without your kisses
C                  F
I'll be needing stitches
Am7                
I'm tripping over myself,
        G         C     
I'm aching begging you to come help
F             Am7                G
And now that I'm without your kisses
C                 F
I'll be needing stitches

[Instrumental
Am7 G C F 2x

[Bridge]

Am7                     
Needle and the thread,
G                         
Gotta get you out of my head
C               
Needle and the thread,    
 F                 
Gonna wind up dead
Am               
Needle and the thread,
 G                                                              
Gotta get you out of my head
C               
Needle and the thread
F                 
Gonna wind up dead 

Repeat 2x

[Chorus]

              Am7                        G
You watch me bleed until I can't breathe
                C                
I'm shaking, falling onto my knees
F              Am7                  G
And now that I'm without your kisses
C                  F
I'll be needing stitches
Am7                
I'm tripping over myself,
        G         C     
I'm aching begging you to come help
F             Am7                G
And now that I'm without your kisses
C                 F     G   Am7
I'll be needing stitches

This tab is misleading as it has the wrong chords.
The chords should be Am G C and F as that is how shawn mendes plays it.

did u watch the video? if you listen carefully he actually plays it in those chords.
But like the tab said, "it's up to you to follow them or not" :)

Hi! Great tab, I think it goes well with this version of the song. A little correction, the intro says:... F... e|------------------------------||... B|-----------1------------------||... G|------------------------------||... D|-----0-----------0----0-------||... A|------------------------------||... E|--1-----1-----1-----1---------||And, I think, it should be:... F... e|------------------------------||... B|-----------1------------------||... G|------------------------------||... D|-----3-----------3----3-------||... A|------------------------------||... E|--1-----1-----1-----1---------||At least that's how I hear it. I'm still working on it, so should I find anything more I'll try to post again. Great work still!P.s: I'm quite sure he doesn't use a capo on 1st fret, at least for the intro, but on the video it shows as if he does, which confuses my quite a lot lol. Then, I don't know if on the Pre-chorus or chorus, the guitar sounds like it does have a capo on 1st. I'll try to dig in a little bit more.
