Verse

I hurt myself today, to see if I still feel

I focus on the pain, the only thing thats real

The needle tears a hole, the old familiar sting

Try to kill it all away, but I remember everything

Chorus

What Have I become, my sweetest friend

Everyone I know, goes away in the end

And you could have it all, my empire of dirt

I will let you down, I will make you hurt

For the bit between the verses here I like to hit the last few

strings of Am,(ebg)then slowly move up your strumming so your

hitting bgd,then up to gda and finally when you've hit daE a few

times,I go for two go back down and hit ebg once.Then straight

into the next verse.

Verse

I wear this crown of thorns, upon my liars chair

Full of broken thoughts, I cannot repair

Beneath the stains of time, the feeling disappears

You are someone else, I am still right here

Chorus

What Have I become, my sweetest friend

Everyone I know, goes away in the end

And you could have it all, my empire of dirt

I will let you down, I will make you hurt

Outro

If I could start again,

a million miles away

I would keep myself,

I would find a way.
