*The D2 are optional, you could replace it with a regular D
*Same with FM7, you could play a regular F chord. The reason
 I used FM7 is because it is easier to play.
*This is the picking/strumming pattern for the verse

[Intro]
Am - C - D2
Am - C - D
Am - C - D - Am

[Verse I]
  C      D2     Am      C      D       Am
I hurt myself today, to see if I still feel
  C     D2     Am        C      D          Am
I focus on the pain, the only thing that's real
    C       D2      Am       C      D      Am
The needle tears a hole, the old familiar sting
       C       D2   Am           C      D      G          
Try to kill it all away, but I remember everything

[Chorus]
Am             FM7  C              G
What have I become?  My sweetest friend
Am           FM7        C         G
Everyone I know, goes away in the end
    Am                FM7  C            G
And you could have it all, My empire of dirt
Am              FM7  G                Am  |  C  |  D2
I will let you down, I will make you hurt

Am - C - D
Am

[Verse II]
  C           D2       Am      C      D       Am
I wear this crown of thorns, upon my liars chair
C         D2     Am      C     D     Am
Full of broken thoughts, I cannot repair
  C           D2       Am        C       D    Am
Beneath the stains of time, the feeling disappears
C        D2     Am    C      D         G
You are someone else, I am still right here

Am             FM7  C              G
What have I become?  my sweetest friend
Am           FM7        C         G
Everyone I know, goes away in the end
    Am                F    C            G
And you could have it all, my empire of dirt
Am              FM7  G
I will let you down, I will make you hurt
   Am              FM7     G
If I could start again, a million miles away
Am              FM7  G
I would keep myself, I would find a way
