Verse

-6 7 -6 6 -5 -6 -4 -5 -4 -5 6 -6

I hurt myself today to see if I still feel

-6 7 -6 6 -5 -6 -4 -5 -4 6 -4 -4

I focus on the pain, the only thing that's real

-6 7 -6 6 -5 -6 -4 -5 -4 -5 -4 -6

The needle tears a hole, the old familiar sting

-6 -6 7 -6 6 -5 -6 -4 -5 -4 -5 -4 -5 4 4

try to kill it all away, but I remember everything


Chorus

7 -6 -6 -5 -5 -5 6 -5 6

What have I become, my sweetest friend

7 -6 -6 -5 -5 -5 -4 -5 6 4 4

Everyone I know goes away in the end

-5 6 -5 -6 -5 -5 6 6 6 -5 6

And you could have it all, my empire of dirt

6 -5 -6 -5 -5 6 -5 -6 4 -4

I will let you down, I will make you hurt


Thanks for following this harmonica lesson. I hope you enjoyed it!
