1.        Do you know what's worth fighting for,

Am               F              C      G

    when it's not worth dying for ?

Am            F                C         G

    Does it take your breath away,

                    F                         G

    and you feel yourself suffocating ?

Am                F                C        G

    Does the pain weigh out the pride,

Am              F               C         G

    and you look for a place to hide ?

2.      When you're at the end of the road,

Am              F         C                  G

    and you lost all sense of control,

Am                  F                  C               G

    and your thoughts have taken their toll,

                       F                                            G

    then your mind breaks the spirit of your soul.

Am        F                       C         G

    Your faith walks on broken glass,

Am              F              C         G

    and the hangover doesn't pass

    nothing's ever built to last, you're in ruins.

Am            F       C                  G

    Did you try to live on your own,

Am                 F                          C              E

    when you burned down the house and home ?

Am               F             C                E

    Did you stand too close to the fire,

               F                          G                        (C)

    like a liar looking for forgiveness from a stone ?

    and you can't get another try,

Am                 F                 C            G                    F
