Chorus:

G                Cadd9              G  
She died with her hands stretched out

                 Cadd9         G
She died with a hungry mouth

                Cadd9                G
She died with her mind, full of doubt

                         D/Dsus2/Dsus4/D
and thoughts of weakening

             Cadd9       G
so may your river never dry

             Cadd9         G
and may your mouth never lie

             Cadd9                   G
may you be satisfied, to never know why

                               C        D(2)
Sometimes, someone just wants to die




and then on with the next verse as before. Comments welcome.
