Original tuning : +0.5 step(s) [ ? ]
#To play in key, you will need a capo on the second fret.  
#If you choose not to use a capo, the song sounds just fine without it.
#Although you will not be able to play along with the song.

#In the song, you might notice that before he switches chords, there is a
#slight change in the chord.
#You can achieve the same effect by using your little finger to hit an extra
#note on the A A string while playing the chord.
#For Em Em, hit fret 3; for C C, hit fret 5; for G G, hit fret 3; and for D D, hit
#fret 2. (relative to the capo)

# During the chorus and intro, use the extra note.
# During the last part, only play the chords once and let ring.


# Intro:
Em Em C C G G D D
Em Em C C G G D D
# (stop the D D early)

Em Em C C
Well I'm so tired of the rain falling softly on the ground,
G G D D
Just enough to get my feet wet but not enough to let me drown.
Em Em C C
I've been laying in my bed wishing I had never woken,
G G D D
Begging God to rid my head of every word you've ever spoken.
Em Em C C
Broke my knuckles on the wall because I thought about the call
G G D D
Where you said you'd always love me, do you not tell the truth at all?
Em Em C C
Well if I ever cross your mind, make sure you write down the times
G G D D
So I will know the moments I was eating you alive.


Em Em C C G G
Now I lay here waiting with the hope that I might find some sleep
D D Em Em
I need some sleep tonight,
C C G G
Cause I've been waiting on your call but I know it will never come
D D Em Em
but I'm still waiting by the phone.


Em Em
And don't you dare, don't you dare,
G G D D
Say you ever loved me or even tell me that you cared
Em Em
Cause you knew what you were doing and you know just what you've done.
G G D D
How dare you say you miss me with your spit still on his tongue!
Em Em
I am broken. I am beaten. I'm mistreated and I'm torn.
G G D D
I am cold with no direction but I'm lost without your warmth.
Em Em
I'm trying hard to find some hope that I might get the chance to breathe.
GD
Get off my mind, give back my heart and get the fuck away from me!
Em Em
I know I couldn't give you much, but I know I gave my best,
G G D D
You were always my princess, and now he's sliding up your dress
Em Em
And I know I gave the world everything I've ever had,
G G D D *Stop*
Johnny Cash said love would burn, I never thought it'd hurt this bad.



Em Em C C
Well I'm so tired of the rain falling softly on the ground,
G G D D
Just enough to get my feet wet but not enough to let me drown.
Em Em C C
I've been laying in my bed wishing I had never woken,
G G D D
Begging God to rid my head of every word you've ever spoken.
Em Em C C
Broke my knuckles on the wall because I thought about the call
G G D D
Where you said you'd always love me, do you not tell the truth at all?
Em Em C C
Well if I ever cross your mind, make sure you write down the times
G G D D
So I will know the moments I was eating you alive.


Em Em C C G G D D

Em Em
You are the itch that's on my back.
C C
You are the gum under my shoe.
G G
You are the horrors of my past.
D D
You are the chill that haunts the room.
Em Em
You are the creaking on my steps.
C C
You are cancer. You are plague.
G G
You are regret. You are disease.
D D
I wish that you would go away.

#Strum some D D. End on C C, let ring.

I think it sounds better ending on Em but the rest was spot on!
