Artist : NF
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
