 E
 You'll rescue me right?
 D
In the exact same way they never did
 E
 I'll be happy right?
 D
When your healing powers kick in
 E
 You'll complete me right?
 D
And my life can finally begin
 E
 I'll be worthy right?
 D
Only when you realise the gem I am

Pre-Chorus:
 EADA
But this won't work now the way it once did
 EADA
And I won't keep it up even though I'm allowed to
 EADA
Once I know who I'm not, then I'll know who I am
 EADA
But I know I won't keep on playing the victim

Chorus:
 DA
These precious illusions in my head
 EA
Did not let me down when I was defenseless
 DABmE
And parting with them is like parting with invisible best friends

This ring will help me yet as will
you knight in shining armour
This pill will help me yet as will these
boys gone through like water

Pre-Chorus:
And this won't work now the way it once did
Cuz I want to decide between survival and bliss
And though I know who I'm not I still don't know who I am
But I know I won't keep on playing the victim

Chorus

Bridge:
 ACadd9GE
 I've spent so long firmly looking outside me
 ACadd9GDA
 I've spent so much time living in survival mode

Pre-Chorus
