[D]If I could crawl into a [C]shell
Then I would a mile aw[D]ay
Things are heavy enough alre[C]ady[D]
[D]And I really do think that's
The [C]best that I can do
Stuck here and [D]all
And I really do think that
[C]Don't care at all
[D]Take a step forwards[C]
Don't be afraid
Tak[D]e a step backwards

You can play the variations if you want to sound it the most similar to the record as possible

[Verse 3] 
[D] It's hard to walk
[C] With broken legs
