[F#m]This is the [C#m]life of a [F#m]woman with [C#m]demons
[F#m]The first time we [C#m]met I was [F#m]sure she was [C#m]steaming
[Dm]This is my life, [Dm]this is my life
What a life[F#m] [C#m] [F#m] [C#m]
[F#m]Life isnā??[C#m]t precious an[F#m]d life isnā[C#m]??t sacred
[F#m]Sometimes [C#m]release only [F#m]comes when you [C#m]meet death
[Dm]A night of reprieve we were [Dm]wrecked
when we slept in the [F#m]park[C#m] [F#m] [C#m]
[Dm]When we woke in the morning you [Dm]cried
could I squeeze out the [Am]dark[Em] [F] [G]
[Am]Destroy the [Em]noises that [F]make all the [G]voices
[Am]Get them [Em]out of my [F]head[G]
[Am]Bring on the [Em]screaming and [F]Iā??ll take you[G]r demons
[Am]now that Iā??[Em]m alread[F]y dead[Em]
(same as verse above)
Days of release when she almost felt better
Gradually faded and words couldnā??t get her
Where is the light, where is the light, get the light
Fearless and clear all her doubts had been cast off
Last night alive is a nightmare Iā??m part of
Dreams are a lie, dreams are a lie
So am I
If thatā??s all there is then I might as well get in the fire
(same as chorus)
Destroy the noises that make all the voices
Get them out of my head
Bring on the screaming and Iā??ll take your demons now that Iā??m already dead
Oh how the rights of the righteous kept coming
Shining before like the day
I stand before them and cried that youā??re dying your way
[F#m]Iā??m still no[C#m]t sure if th[F#m]e right and th[C#m]e wrong side i[F#m]s one[C#m] [F#m]
