How To Play

Note: In the verse, FM7sus4/C, F6/D, Dsus2, D9sus4 and Dm9/C
      are the organ's "response" chords, so they can be ommited if you find it too hard (as if, right?).
      Same thing goes for G6/D, E6/B and A#m7 in the bridge section.

  A5 A5      D9sus4                        F5 E5 D5   D5 D#5 E5 E5
I cannot tolerate my anxiety for the moment
   D5 D5    Dm9/C                           A5 G#5 G5   G5 F5 E5   A#5

  A5 A5       D9sus4                            F5 E5 D5   D5 D#5
I cannot rectify my embarrassment on the subject
 
CHORUS
E5 E5       Dm7
Always on a knife's edge, here with you

  You know my worry only comes from wanting more for you
Dm7   C9sus4/D
I get low with you
D9sus4/E    G9sus4
  I hate it when we're cruel
Am7                      Am7                G9sus4
  You know my worry only comes from fear of what I'd lose

Selfish, self-centered and a little bit narcissistic
    A5 A5      Dm9/C                          F5 E5 D5   D5 D#5
And to be ever grateful would be uncharacteristic
