[Intro]
Am  C  G  D  2x


[Verse]
Am              C             G
It’s been awhile since I could
D               Am
hold my head up high
                C              G       D  Am
It’s been awhile since I first saw you
               C               G           D
It’s been awhile since I could stand on my own
          Am
two feet again
                C              G        D  Am
It’s been awhile since I could call you


[Chorus]
Am       C               G     D  Am
And everything I can't remember
             C             G   D  Am
As fucked up as it all may seem
         C                 G       D  Am
The consequences that I've rendered
              C              G    D  Am
I stretched myself beyond my means


[Verse]
Am              C                 G
It’s been awhile since I couldn't say
       D                 Am
that I wasn't addicted
                C                 G
It’s been awhile since I couldn't say
         D                Am
I love myself as well as
                C                    G
It’s been awhile since I've gone and fucked things up
     D                Am
just like I always do
                C             G                 D
It’s been awhile but all that shit seems to disappear
                   Am
when I’m with you


[Chorus]
(Am)     C               G     D  Am
And everything I can't remember
             C             G   D  Am
As fucked up as it all may seem
         C                 G       D  Am
The consequences that I've rendered
Am            C                G          D
I’ve gone and fucked things up again, yeah


[Bridge]
G  D  Am                     G  D  Am
        Why must I feel this way
                   G  D  Am
Just make this go away
                       G   D  Am~
Just one more peaceful day


[Verse]
Am              C             G
It’s been awhile since I could
D              Am
look at myself straight
                C                G     D   Am
It’s been awhile since I said im sorry
                C
It’s been awhile since
              G   D                  Am
I’ve seen the way candles light your face
                C          G
It’s been awhile but I can still remember
D                Am
just the way you taste


[Chorus]
Am         C             G     D  Am
And everything I can't remember
Am           C             G       D              Am
As fucked up as it all may seem to be I know it’s me
Am       C                G     D  Am
I cannot blame this on my father
Am         C                 G  D  Am
He did the best he could for me


[Outro]
Am              C             G
It’s been awhile since I could
D               Am
hold my head up high
Am              C                 G~
It’s been awhile since I said I’m sorry
