F# Bbm Fm F#
 
[CHORUS]
              F#              Bbm
How could you leave so unexpected?
       Fm         F#
We waited, we waited
     F#               Bbm
For you, but you just left us
          Fm             F#
We needed you, I needed you
  
[VERSE 1]
      F#
Yo, I don't know what it's like to be addicted to pills
      Bbm
But I do know what it's like to be a witness, it kills
         Fm
Mama told me she loved me, I'm thinkin' this isn't real
           F#
I think of you when I get a whiff of that cigarette smell, yeah
        '
F#      '
Welcome to the bottom of hell
          Bbm
They say pain is a prison, let me out of my cell
              Fm
You say you proud of me, but you don't know me that well
            F#
Sit in my room, tears runnin' down my face and I yell

            F#
Into my pillowcases, say you comin' to get us
     Bbm
Then call a minute later just to tell us you're not, I'm humiliated
Fm
I'm in a room with a parent that I don't barely know
       F#
Some lady in the corner watchin' us while she's takin' notes

F#
I don't get it, Mom, don't you want to watch your babies grow?
Bbm
I guess pills are more important, all you have to say is "no"
Fm
But you won't do it, will you? You gon' keep poppin' 'til them pills kill you
 F#
I know you're gone, but I can still feel you

F#                        Bbm
Why would you leave us? Why would you leave us?
 Fm                     F#
How could you leave us here?
F#                                        Bbm   Fm
How could you leave us? Why would you leave us? Oh
F#
Hey
 
[VERSE 2]
             F#
I got this picture in my room and it kills me
                   Bbm
But I don't need a picture of my mom, I need the real thing
          Fm
Now a relationship is somethin' we won't ever have
               F#
But why do I feel like I lost somethin' that I never had?
              '
              F#
You shoulda been there when I graduated
                               Bbm
Told me you loved me and congratulations

Instead you left us at the window waitin'
Fm
Where you at mom?
                         F#
We're too young to understand, where you at, huh?

                   F#
Yeah, I know them drugs have got you held captive
                       Bbm
I can see it in your eyes, they got your mind captured
                               Fm
Some say it's fun to get the high, but I am not laughin'
                    F#
And what you don't realize and what you're not graspin'

                         F#
That I was nothin' but a kid who couldn't understand it
                          Bbm
I ain't gon' say that I forgive you 'cause it hasn't happened
                          Fm
I thought that maybe I'd feel better as time passes
                F#
If you really cared for me, then where you at then?

Why would you leave us? Why would you leave us?
 Fm                     F#
How could you leave us here?
F#                                        Bbm   Fm
How could you leave us? Why would you leave us? Oh

Hey
 
 
[VERSE 3]
             F#
Our last conversation, you and I sat in the livin' room
                   Bbm
Talkin' 'bout my music and I brought you some to listen to
              Fm
You started cryin', tellin' me this isn't you
                 F#
A couple weeks later, guess you were singin' a different tune

                F#
You took them pills for the last time, didn't you?
                       Bbm
They took you from us once, I guess they came back to finish you
           Fm
Cryin' my eyes out in the studio is difficult
               F#
Music is the only place that I can go to speak to you

                             F#
It took everything inside of me, not to scream at your funeral
                Bbm
Sittin' in my chair, that person talkin' was pitiful
                Fm
I wish you were here, mama, but every time I picture you
               F#
All I feel is pain, I hate the way I remember you

                     F#
They found you on the floor, I could tell you felt hollow
                     Bbm
Gave everything you had, plus your life to them pill bottles
                         Fm
You gave everything you had, plus your life to them pill bottles
                  F#
Don't know if you hear me or not, but if you're still watchin', why?
 
[CHORUS]
F#                        Bbm
Why would you leave us? Why would you leave us?
 Fm                     F#
How could you leave us here?
F#                                        Bbm   Fm
How could you leave us? Why would you leave us? Oh
F#
Hey
  
[OUTRO]
F# Bbm Fm F#             F#
Sometimes I think about like...
             F#                             Bbm
Sometimes I think about things like, you know
Bbm                          Fm F#
When I'd have kids, I'm like...

F#
You won't be there, you know?
Bbm                               Fm F# 
You won't be there for any of that
F#                 Bbm             Fm
And I'll never get to see you again
Fm                                  F#
Sometimes I wish I would've just called you
F#
I wish I would have just picked up the phone

F#
Wish you were here
Bbm
I mean you should've been there for us
Fm
You should have been here!
  F#
Them pills got you, right?!
F#     Bbm             Fm F#
Them pills got you, right?!
F#
I wish you were here
