[INTRO]
F#m C#m D | |
F#m C#m D | |


[VERSE 1]
F#m          C#m    D
   I was born   in a thunderstorm
F#m       C#m    D
   I grew up overnight
F#m          C#m
   I played alone,
              D             A/C#    Bmadd9 | |
   I'm playing on my own, I survived,       hey
F#m           C#m         D
   I wanted ev - erything I never had,
F#m             C#m          D
   like the love   that comes with life
F#m         C#m        D
   I wore En - vy and I hated that,
            C# | |
   but I survived.


[PRE-CHORUS]
        F#m                 C#m             D
I had a one-way ticket to a place where all the demons go
          F#m                   C#m                  D
where the wind don't change and nothing in the ground can ever grow,
   F#m                        C#m           D
No hope, just lies and you're taught to cry in your pillow,
            C# | |
but I'll survive.


[CHORUS 1]
n.c.      F#m A                D   D#m7-5
I'm still breathing, I'm still breathing,
          F#m A                D   D#m7-5
I'm still breathing, I'm still breathing,
n.c. F#m  E | A   D
I'm alive, 
     F#m  E | A   D
I'm alive, 
     A    E | F#m D
I'm alive, 
     F#m  E | A   D
I'm alive. 


[VERSE 2]
F#m        C#m       D
   I found solace in the strangest place,
F#m               C#m      D
   way in the back   of my mind.
F#m      C#m        D                C#
   I saw my life in a stranger's face  and it was mine.


[PRE-CHORUS]
        F#m                C#m                D
I had a one-way ticket to a   place where all the demons go
          F#m                   C#m                  D
where the wind don't change and nothing in the ground can ever grow,
   F#m                        C#m           D
No hope, just lies and you're taught to cry in your pillow,
            C# | |
but I'll survive.


[CHORUS 2]
n.c.      F#m A                D   D#m7-5
I'm still breathing, I'm still breathing,
          F#m A                D   D#m7-5
I'm still breathing, I'm still breathing,
n.c. F#m  E | A   D
I'm alive, 
     F#m  E | A   D
I'm alive, 
     A    E | F#m D
I'm alive, 
     F#m  E | A   D
I'm alive. 


[CHORUS 3] - drums out on final line
F#m                E
   You took it out, but I'm still breathing.
A                  D
   You took it out, but I'm still breathing.
F#m                E

[BRIDGE]
Bm
I had made every single mistake
F#m                 E
that you could ever possibly make.
  Bm
I took and I took and I took what you gave
    F#m                    E
but you never noticed that I was in pain.
  Bm
I knew what I wanted, I went in and got it.
F#m                         E
Did all the things that you said that I wouldn't,
  Bm7
I told you that I would never be forgotten,
  F#m                 E  C# | |
I know that's part of you.

   I'm still breathing, I'm still breathing,
        F#m                E

The last line of the first verse is:
I wore Envy and I hated that
But I survived

And also, for all the pre-choruses, the first line is:
I had a one way ticket to a place where all the demons go

Other than that, good tab!
