Capo 1
Standard Tuning


There is an OK version of this song already on the site, but it needed several 
corrections and the title was wrong (there is no "the" in the title.)  Here is my 
version, hope you like it.  Comments and corrections are welcome.

Note: If you aren't worried about playing along with the key of the song, 
transpose it one step up.  It's much easier to play.


F                          C
I really need to talk with you
       Dm
I keep stepping on the vein
              Bb
That keeps my lifeline flowing through.
F                                C
I wanna be your perfect stick of glue
                 Dm
But I don't feel perfect at all,

A Sad and insecure flaw
F                             C
I find it hard to hold conversations
        Dm                            Bb
I get sweaty, sick, and I wanna walk away
         F                                     C
No, it's not you, this is strictly me in this situation
                       Dm
I'm wondering will it ever go away? Just go away, still...


Gm
Sometimes I feel like weeping
F
Awake and when I'm sleeping
C                        Dm
Perfecting how to put a game face on
Gm
This puzzle I've been keeping
F
Has been in hiding creeping
C                              A
Out the closet door, spilling out onto the floor;



    F Am Dm                      F Am Dm  
How long will I be picking up pieces?
    F Am Dm                    Bb     C
How long will I be picking up my heart?



        F                       C
Listen, I'll be as honest as I feel
                  Dm
I'm getting more paranoid, and I'm hearing things
          Bb                   F
And they never turn out real.
                                   C
It feels like my heart is made of pure steel,
              Dm
It's just so heavy all the time.

          
F                                          C
I'm scared of death, I'm scared of living
   Dm                                 Bb
I gave up on the past 'cause it's unforgiving
F
I misplaced my trust,
            C
I Watched my word begin to rust,
       Dm
I'm that balloon about to bust
           Bb
I need a place for reliving still - 


Gm
Sometimes I feel like weeping
F
Awake and when I'm sleeping
C                        Dm
Perfecting how to put a game face on
Gm
And This puzzle I've been keeping
F
Has been in hiding creeping
C                              A
Out the closet door, spilling out onto the floor;



    F Am Dm                    F Am Dm  
How long will I be picking up pieces?
    F Am Dm                       C     Dm
How long will I be picking up my heart?
                 C     Dm
Be Picking up my heart? (x3)
                 Bb    Dm
Picking up my heart?

Bb F C (x4)


     F  Am  Dm
How long (in another space in time) will I be
               F  Am  Dm   
Picking up pieces (in the corner of my mind?)
    F  Am  Dm
How long (it's getting oh so hard to find) will I be
              F  Am  Dm
Picking up pieces (in the corner of my mind?) C'mon...

F  Am  Dm
Whoah... But I still walk on...
