Verse 1
A/B                 F#m7   
 If I cried like a baby 
       G#m7            C#m7
Would you change your mind?
Amaj7    G#m7          F#m7 
   If I told you I'm crazy 
           G#m7         C#m7
Would you come running back to me?

Amaj7       G#m7             F#m7                
 The harder I try to break away
            G#m7        C#m7
The more I get lost in yesterday
Amaj7 G#m7          F#m7           G#m7               
 The man that you know is just a shell
           C#m7                  F#m7'-E
Living without you, life is hell

     Pre-Chorus
     B               E       
      I turn on the radio 
              F#m7' E  B
     Just to take the hurt away
     B                       E
      Another night and I'm missing you
                F#m7 G#m7 A/B
     Girl it's ki__lling me, well

     Chorus
     Amaj7                                   
     I don't wanna die tonight
             C#m7
     But I think I might be going down
              F#m7             G#m7           
     'Cuz the only one I ever cared about 
         Amaj7         A/B
     Is nowhere to be found

     Amaj7                                   
     I don't wanna close my eyes 
               C#m7
     'Cause I might not see the light of day
         F#m7          G#m7
     I'm almost out of air
                            Dmaj7   A/B                
     You're my reason for breathing
                            C#m7
     You're my reason for breathing
               F#m7
     No no no no
     C#m7       F#m7
      No no no no

Verse 2
                   F#m7     
I don't wanna go clubbing
G#m7                   C#m7
 'Cuz I got no one to dance with me
Amaj7         G#m7      F#m7                     
 And I don't wanna go shopping 
G#m7                    C#m7         Amaj7-G#m7
 'Cuz I got no one to spend my money on
  F#m7                G#m7
Spending my time with one glass of wine
  C#m7                    Amaj7    G#m7
Playing solitaire just to ease my mind
 F#m7                   G#m7
Poured one for you, but I drank that too
C#m7                          F#m7'     E
Anything to kill the pain of losing you

     Pre-Chorus
     Chorus

Bridge
         E                   B
So I'm reaching out on this distant line
        C#m7              
Hoping deep inside 
      B                    Amaj7
Your heart's gonna find a reason
A/B           C#m7    B
 To keep me breathing

         E                     
But I'm lost in this pain 
             B
And I don't have much time
     C#m7               
I'm so tired of walking 
      Bm7
This same old line
        Amaj7                    G#m7                   
So I'm taking my pride, gonna throw it aside
  Amaj7                          A/B
Please let me breathe girl, I'm sorry

     Chorus
