                Okay this is not my first tab I've ever written, but this hopefully is the first one
that is accepted. This might need a little explaining. I made this tab because I also
wanted to get that bassline in, so with this, you don't need a bass or another guitar
Plus I like to see all the lyrics to go with roughly where to play.

For this:
e------5-X--|
B------6-X--|
G----5---X--|
D-----------|
A-----------|
E--5--------|

You thumb the 6th string E and hold the other three like an open chord D. I play it
this way for simplicity as opposed to the Capo. Use the music too as an aid and if
Enjoy.

Verse 3: (strum)
     I believe in memories they look so, so pretty when I sleep 
And now when, 
        when I wake up you look so pretty sleeping next to me, but there is
      not enough time    and there is no, no song I could sing and there is
    no combination of words I could say but I will
  still tell you one thing (let the last note ring)
