No chord
    
Standard guitar tuning:
E
A
D
G
B
E
Capo on 1 fret
  B6 (or G/B)     Em    G  There is also another chord sometimes used in the song, its some form
e-----------|----|---| of D without the rd (so idk if it is a Dm or Dmaj), so I just call it a D,
b-----------|----|---| but I play just the bass notes open (DAD)
g-----------|----|---|
d-7---------|-2--|-3-|
a-8---------|-2--|-3-|
d-7---------|-2--|-3-|
All, or most, chords can be played regularly, except that you have to accommodate for the dropped d. Also, if you want to you can play most of the other strings open. And you knew eB6xactlEmy whenG B6 you gave your heart aEmnd all of it G Em B6Without a thouEmght of whatG you meant B6you knew you couldn'Emt live without thiGs Em So maEmke youGr excusB6es now that tEmime has stoGlen all thB6at you'veG earned EmMake yoGur excB6uses now that tEmime has stGolen her B6 Emtime has stGolen her Am (There is another guitar playing the melody, but I usually play it on the d string. it is mostly just switching between the noes E and D)

D Em D Em

EmTell me that I'm a fool That I've exaggerated Cthe situation Am Em'Cause I've never been scared like this Of losing more than IC have to give Am For this part I will use a small tab to show you how I play it. Im sure that this is meant for two guitars, but I will just show you how I play it. You can let all strings ring if you want to.

It's so unfair I believed I could handle this I swore I could fix everything CBut I told myself lies all of these years (quickly) D (open) Em D Em STOP I told myself lies (same again) D Em D Em STOP All of these years D Em D Em The fear tEmhat moves in and stays here D Em D Em The words that replay in your ears D Em D Em The grip that you held has weakened D Em D Em Was the life that was yours forsaken But CI can't take my eyes off of you *Chorus* STOP G And we were still so cool Our bodies smooth and young (bodies Emsmooth and young) The dreams of getting older C Were never supposed to come (were never supposed to come) The curse of perfect days G You forget just what you've made (forget juEmst what you've made) And you find yourself just praying C For something more than this life Something more than this l i f eEm G EmWe wait for the doctors, to prescribe theirD medicines EmAnd hold their bad news, as if later it wilDl make more sense EmBut I've never been scared like this (It's so unfair) Just waitiDng for my strength to give (I thought I could handle this) EmBut this is the rock, I broke myB6self against (I swore I could fix anything) We believeCd we'd have our way (And we diEmd, and we did) The meCmories we have made (Everyday Gwas the best Fmaj11day of my life) I could neCver repay what I owe (I'll reEmplace, I'll reload) CEven though I read tAmhe ending before the stGart Fmaj11I would have never changed a single part
