Blue October Picking Up The Pieces chords version 1
Kind of tricky song, and this is my first tab...so be "gentle" I guess. The Prechorus is a little sketchy, but it's right with the music. Capo on 1 INTRO - |: Bb-C :| Verse:F CI really need to talk with youDmI keep stepping on the veinBbThat keeps my lifeline flowing through.F CI wanna be your perfect stick of glueDmBut I don't feel perfect at all,A Sad and insecure flawF CI find it hard to hold conversationDm BbI get sweaty, sick, and I wanna walk awayF CIt's not you, this is strictly me in this situationDmI'm wondering will it ever go away? Just go away...PRE-CHORUSBbSometimes I feel like weepingAAwake and when I'm sleepingAbm FPerfecting how to put a game face onBbThis puzzle I've been keepingAHas been in hiding creepingAbm AOut the closet door, spilling out onto the floor;CHORUSF C Dm Bb F C Dm BbHow long will I be picking up the pieces?F C Dm Bb ... CHow long will I be picking up my heart?VERSEF CI'll be as honest as I feelDmI'm getting more paranoid, and I'm hearing thingsBb FAnd they never turn out real.CIt feels like my heart is made of pure steel,DmIt's just so heavy all the time.(little interlude here, obviously)F CYea I'm scared of death, I'm scared of livingDm BbI gave up on the past 'cause it was unforgivingFI misplaced my trust,CWatched my words begin to rust,DmI'm a balloon about to bustBbI need a place for reliving still -
CHORUS 2F C DmHow long in another place in time,Bb F C Dm Bb Picking up the pieces in the corner of my mind?F C DmHow long, living oh so hard to find,Bb F C Dm Bb Picking up the pieces in the corner of my mind?Ends with "Whoa's" and "I still walk on / I wake up every morning," using the same chords and timing from the chorus.
