MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE - Cancer

This song is from the album The Black Parade(2006), released on Oct 23, 2006.
I loved the agony in this song. The way that he sings the song, the emotion in his voice makes it even more powerful. The piano and the chords used feels great to listen to, especially those diminished chords. Thanks to Jess-marie for this excellent suggestion.

[INTRO] E B E B
[VERSE]
E
Turn away,
B                      C#m
If you could get me a drink 
                              Am
Of water 'cause my lips are chapped and faded 
         E
Call my aunt Marie
B                        C#m
Help her gather all my things
               Am
And bury me in all my favorite colors,
A                    Bbdim    B
My sisters and my brothers, still, 
   Cdim       C#m  Am
I will not kiss you, 
              F#m             B             E
'Cause the hardest part of this is leaving you. 

[VERSE]
         E
Now turn away, 
B                         C#m
'Cause I'm awful just to see 
                         Am
'Cause all my hairs abandoned all my body, 
       E
Oh, my agony,
B                       C#m
Know that I will never marry, 
                 Am
Baby, I'm just soggy from the chemo
      A                 Bbdim  B
But counting down the days to go
     Cdim       C#m
It just ain't living
              Am
And I just hope you know

[CHORUS]
     E
That if you say (if you say)
          Am
Goodbye today (goodbye today)
     C#m
I'd ask you to be true (cause I'd ask you to be true)


             F#m             B              C#m Cdim B A
'Cause the hardest part of this is leaving you
             F#m              B            E
'Cause the hardest part of this is leaving you
