Tuning: Half Step Down

Great band, figured I'd try to work out a song. I'm not sure what tuning they play

in, but I tabbed it out in half-step down for easier chords. Keep in mind that

this is more of a loose interpretation of the song, sounds fine by itself, but Im

not sure if its 100% accurate.

INTRO:

D      A      G     x2

VERSE:

D                   G                   D

If it all worked out we would live in a different house.

                   G

We would live in a different town.

D                     G                       D

This is a brand new start; clear body, broken heart.

                           G

I'll come visit you when I get the chance.

PRE-CHORUS:

F#m                 G

Breathing's not easy when you're underwater.

F#m           G

I am drowning and you're keeping me under.

CHORUS:

D        A          G

         Close your eyes, sleep outside. 

D        A           G

it's warmer than in here.

D        A       G 

         I'll be fine, I'll run and hide. 

D        A            G

       I wish I could stay here.

VERSE:

D                  G                                  D

You're still in my head. my mind's convinced that you never left.

                         G

I'm counting down till I see you next.

D          G                       D 

I still compare everything to your silhouette.

             G

How can I forget what is perfect?

PRE-CHORUS:

F#m                 G

Breathing's not easy when you're underwater.

F#m          G

I am drowning and you're keeping me under.

CHORUS:

D        A          G

         Close your eyes, sleep outside. 

D        A           G

it's warmer than in here.

D        A       G 

         I'll be fine, I'll run and hide. 

D        A            G

       I wish I could stay here.

Interlude

F#m     G    x4  (see tab below)

CHORUS:

D        A          G

         Close your eyes, sleep outside. 

D        A           G

it's warmer than in here.

D        A       G 

         I'll be fine, I'll run and hide. 

D        A            G

       I wish I could stay here.

End D
