[INTRO]
F


[VERSE 1]
   F                   Bb         F
Oh man, I’m a loner, a night time roamer 
Bb        F              C 
emptiness haunts me, and that’s how I know
F             Bb      F
I am a broken-hearted soul 
         Bb       F         C
and I’ve hit rock bottom so where do I go?


[PRE-CHORUS 1]
Bb  F/A    Dm
All I  need  is for your love to save me
Bb F/A         Dm  
Begging please,  I think I’m going crazy
Bb  F/A    Dm                            Csus4 C
All I  know  is that I’m losing my grip


[CHORUS 1]
(a cappella start)
     F                       Gm        C
As I lay me down to sleep, I wish that you were here with me 
        Dm                Bb
Cause I need some help to save me from myself
(instruments back at first chord)
      F/C                     C       A/C#      Dm F/C     Bbmaj7
And I know I shouldn’t think about you    but I do all the time 
C      F
My, oh my

[VERSE 2]
   F                      Bb         F
Oh man, I’m a stumbler, a straight-A rumbler
Bb          F           C
looking for trouble wherever I go
    F                         Bb           F
And night time is calling, my judgement is falling 
    Bb           F           C
And I won’t give up 'til the sun comes up


[PRE-CHORUS 2]
Bb  F/A    Dm                            Csus4 C

Cause I need some help to save me from myself

      F/C                     C       A/C#      Dm F/C     Bbmaj7 C
And I know I shouldn’t think about you    but I do all the time...


[CHORUS 3]
     F                       Gm     C
As I wake up in despair, you know I say a little prayer 
        Dm7           F/C   Bbadd9
Cause I need some help   to save  me from myself
      F                       C        A/C#  Dm                  
And I know I shouldn’t think about you but I do
