Chords used:

	G      Em7	C       G/B	 Am	 Em	 D	Dsus

D|----------------------2-----------------2-------2------------------|
A|------2-------2-------3--------2----------------2------------------|
E|------3------------------------------------------------x-----------|


Notes: The Dsus after the D in the last line of the verses isn't required. I play
it to give the song a slightly higher pitch right leading into the chorus. When
you play it, make sure you hit the first string U/U/D/U and then change back to a
D after that U/U/D/U strumming sequence. Give it a try, I think it sounds better
that way. Also, on the 4th line of second and third verses, Marc mutes the C
chord right after switching to it and finishes the line "a cappella." Then start
up with G again normally on the next line. Same thing with the last line on the
third verse - mute the G and then it's a cappella until the G in the beginning of the chorus.
