I Never Got To See The West Coast

Song Author Emery Submitted by: Anonymous
[Asus2]So is it cou[E]rage or str[B]ength
and is t[F5]hat what I'm waiting for?
[Asus2]If I could j[E]ust kill my[B]self
would it a[F5]lso kill the remorse?
[Asus2]I wanted so ba[E]dly to ca[B]tch a break
but I'm o[F5]nly breaking down.
[Asus2]I'm still here and sta[E]nding
but if it's [B]up to me
I do[F5]n't think I'll be [Asus2]    [E] hanging aro[B]und  

The dr[E]ink slips down my throat
and the b[Abm]urn cures nice and slow.
All the w[F5]orst parts I wouldn't want you to s[B]ee  
The only parts left of [E]me  

Now, here I am
Just a k[C#m]id without a better plan.
But it's the [Asus2]simple thoughts that haunt me the m[F5]ost.   
I ne[B]ver got to see the west coast.

[Asus2]    [E]    [Asus2]    [E]    [B]    
[Asus2]    [E]    [Asus2]    [E]    [B]    
[Asus2]Spent my ni[E]ghts just asking w[B]hy  
Would G[F5]od let me become like this.
[Asus2]Was it a j[E]oke from the st[B]art?
Was I su[F5]pposed to laugh more at it?
[Asus2]And everyone's quo[E]ting their teachers and pre[B]achers
but their w[F5]ords make me feel so alone.
[Asus2]No one ev[E]er says that they've [B]had those thoughts
in the mi[F5]ddle of the night.
[Asus2]No one e[E]ver admits that they [B]wanted to take their life.

The dr[E]ink slips down my throat
and the b[Abm]urn cures nice and slow.
All the w[F5]orst parts I wouldn't want you to s[B]ee  
The only parts left of [E]me  

Now, here I am
Just a k[C#m]id without a better plan.
But it's the [Asus2]simple thoughts that haunt me the m[F5]ost.   
I ne[B]ver got to see the west coast.

[Asus2]    [E]    [Asus2]    [E]    [B]    
[Asus2]    [E]    [Asus2]    [E]    [B]    
But it's the l[C#m]ife I dreamed I have
The lo[C]ve I find in my grasp
The wo[B]rds I could share with som[F5]eone.
Those tho[C#m]ughts keep the breath in my lungs
That tom[C]orrow my hope will become
fulf[B]illed by a love that can't be un[F5]done.
And [Asus2]save a wr[E]etch like [B]me.  

So if the dr[E]ink slips down your throat
and the b[Abm]urn cures nice and slow.
All the w[F5]orst parts you wouldn't want me to s[B]ee.  
The same parts, I have in [E]me  
Now, scares me too we are b[C#m]oth this way.
I feel just like you[Asus2] do.      
But when you're by yourself you should k[B]now  

One day we got to see the west coast.

[Asus2]    [E]    [Asus2]    [E]    [B]    [Asus2]    

So is it courage or strength
and is that what I'm waiting for?
If I could just kill myself
would it also kill the remorse?
I wanted so badly to catch a break
but I'm only breaking down.
I'm still here and standing
but if it's up to me
I don't think I'll be hanging around

The drink slips down my throat
and the burn cures nice and slow.
All the worst parts I wouldn't want you to see
The only parts left of me

Now, here I am
Just a kid without a better plan.
But it's the simple thoughts that haunt me the most.
I never got to see the west coast.



Spent my nights just asking why
Would God let me become like this.
Was it a joke from the start?
Was I supposed to laugh more at it?
And everyone's quoting their teachers and preachers
but their words make me feel so alone.
No one ever says that they've had those thoughts
in the middle of the night.
No one ever admits that they wanted to take their life.

The drink slips down my throat
and the burn cures nice and slow.
All the worst parts I wouldn't want you to see
The only parts left of me

Now, here I am
Just a kid without a better plan.
But it's the simple thoughts that haunt me the most.
I never got to see the west coast.



But it's the life I dreamed I have
The love I find in my grasp
The words I could share with someone.
Those thoughts keep the breath in my lungs
That tomorrow my hope will become
fulfilled by a love that can't be undone.
And save a wretch like me.

So if the drink slips down your throat
and the burn cures nice and slow.
All the worst parts you wouldn't want me to see.
The same parts, I have in me
Now, scares me too we are both this way.
I feel just like you do.
But when you're by yourself you should know

One day we got to see the west coast.
