Song : How Could You Leave Us

Intro : F Am Em F

                F             Am
How could you leave so unexpected?
   Em          F
We waited, we waited
    F                 Am
For you, but you just left us
   Em            F
We needed you, I needed you

Verse 1 : 
    F
Yo, I don't know what it's like to be addicted to pills
    Am
But I do know what it's like to be a witness, it kills
          Em
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
     Am
They say pain is a prison, let me out of my cell
            Em
You say you proud of me, but you don't know me that well
                F
Sit in my room, tears running down my face and I yell
        F
Into my pillowcases, you say you coming to get us
     Am
Then call 'em a minute later just to tell us you not, I'm humiliated
Em
I'm in a room with a parent that I don't barely know
F
Some lady in the corner watching us while she's taking notes
F
I don't get it mom, don't you want to watch your babies grow?
Am
I guess pills are more important, all you have to say is "no"
Em                                                               F
But you won't do it, will you? You gon' keep popping, 'til those pills kill you

I know you're gone, but I can still feel you

Chorus :
F                        Am                               Em
  Why would you leave us?   Why would you leave us here?
                         F
  How could you leave us here?
F                                       Am             Em
  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
    Am
But I don't need a picture of my mom, I need the real thing
      Em                                                                   F
Now a relationship is something we won't ever have, but why do I feel like I lost something that I never had?
                F
You should have been there when I graduated
                         Am                                                         Em
Told me you loved me and congratulations, instead you left us at the window waitin'

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
                     Am
I can see it in your eyes, they got your mind captured
                         Em
Some say it's fun to get the high, but I am not laughin'
                        F
And what you don't realize and what you not graspin'
                         F
That I was nothing but a kid, who couldn't understand it
                        Am
I ain't gon' say that I forgive you 'cause it hasn't happened
                         Em
I thought that maybe I'd feel better as time passes
              F
If you really cared for me, then where you at then?

Chorus : 
F                         Am                             Em
  Why would you leave us?   Why would you leave us here?
                         F
  How could you leave us here?
F                                       Am            Em
  How could you leave us? Why would you leave us? Oh
 F
Hey

Verse 3 : 
         F
Our last conversation, you and I sat in the living room
              Am
Talkin' 'bout my music and I brought you some to listen to
            Em
You started cryin', telling 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?
                      Am
They took you from us once, I guess they came back to finish you
          Em
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
              Am
Sittin' in my chair, that person talkin' was pitiful
                Em
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
                    Am
Gave everything you had, plus your life to them pill bottles
                        Em
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 watching, why?

Chorus : 
F                         Am                             Em
  Why would you leave us?   Why would you leave us here?
                         F
  How could you leave us here?
F                                       Am           Em
  How could you leave us? Why would you leave us? Oh
F
Hey

Outro : F Am Em
                           F
Sometimes I think about like
                  F                         Am
Sometimes I think about things like, you know
                        Em    F   F
When I'd have kids, I'm like

You won't be there, you know?
Am                                  Em   F   F
You won't be there for any of that
                     Am             Em
And I'll never get to see you again
                                 F
Sometimes I wish I would've just called you
                                             F
I wish I would have just picked up the phone
                   Am
Wish you were here
                                        Em
I mean you should of been there for us
                           F
You should have been here!
                           F
Them pills got you, right?
     Am                     Em  F
Them pills got you, right?

I wish you were here
