Silverstein – My Heroine

Intro:  Em C D (2x)

     Em    C        D
The drugs begin to peak
     Em     C             D
A smile of joy arrives in me
     C        D         Em         G
But sedation changes to panic and nausea
     C                D
And breath starts to shorten
     Em                  D
And heartbeats pound softer
Em        C            D
You won't try to save me!
Em         C          D                            C
You just want to hurt me and leave me desperate!

      D        Em        Em7                         C
You taught my heart, a sense I never knew I had.
   D     Em         G
I can't forget, the times that I was
C           D                Em
Lost and depressed from the awful truth
    Em7            C
How do you do it?
               D
You're my heroine!

Em          C        D
You won't leave me alone!
Em         C            D                       C
Chisel my heart out of stone, I give in everytime.

      D        Em       Em7                         C
You taught my heart, a sense I never knew I had.
   D     Em         G
I can't forget, the times that I was
C           D                Em
Lost and depressed from the awful truth
    Em7             C
How do you do it?
               D             G
You're my heroine!

           B              Em           D              C          D    G
I bet you laugh, at the thought of me thinking for myself. (myself)
           B                Em               D                C
I bet you believe, that I'm better off with you than someone else.
      Em    C      D          Em     C             D
Your face arrives again, all hope I had becomes surreal.
     C          D           Em           G
But under your covers more torture than pleasure
     C              D                 Em         G
And just past your lips there's more anger than laughter
    C        D          Em      G
Not now or forever will I ever change you
    C          D            Em           D          C
I know that to go on, I'll break you, my habit!

      D        Em       E7                        C
You taught my heart, a sense I never knew I had.
   D     Em         G
I can't forget, the times that I was
C           D                Em
Lost and depressed from the awful truth
     Em7               C
How do you do it?
               D
You're my heroine!

Em       C     D         Em(mute)
I will save myself!
