                These are the chords to Writing On the Wall by Bear's Den. Andrew plays the song in Open D on Capo 2.
I have also tabbed the main lead guitar riff (standard tuning) but there are a couple other riffs in the song.
Chords are relative to the capo, so if you're playing in standard tuning crank each chord up a whole step!


Tuning: 
Rhythm Guitar (Guitar 1) - Open D (D-A-D-F#-A-D), Capo 2
Lead Guitar (Guitar 2) - Standard, No Capo

Intro:
Main Riff x3
F#m - G - Bm - A x2


   F#m       G
I shared a secret
Bm        A
One that you could never keep
    F#m           G
And how you just breathe it
   Bm   A    
To everyone that you ever meet
    F#m     G
And when I heard it
Bm     A
Secondhand, so to speak
  F#m        G
I saw that I was someone else
    Bm          A
And you became just someone else

    F#m         G
And all of the stories
Bm             A            
How they just flow right out of your mouth
    F#m           G
Now all of their glory
    Bm     A
Was not enough to go around
    F#m         G
If they're all hungry
 Bm            A
Yeah, they're only mouths to feed
    F#m          G
And you can all say no
   Bm            A
No, I could never say no


[Chorus]
              F#m            G
But now the writing's on our walls
        F#m              G
As the curtains take their call
       F#m               G                 Bm     A
And we slip through the seams, through the in between
     F#m          G        F#m        G
Of a truth and a lie, of a God and a sky
     F#m         G       Bm      A
Of a widow and bride, of you and I


Interlude: Bm x2

   F#m         G
So bury your weakness
     Bm       A
And chew the marrow from the bone
         F#m     G
Keep yourself a secret
     Bm       A
From all of those who've always known
     F#m      G
It's been revealing
   Bm         A
Ignore your skin as it peels away
     F#m      G
It's been revealing
       Bm         A
What you could never begin to explain


[Chorus]
              F#m          G
There's the writing on our walls
        F#m              G
As the curtains take their call
       F#m               G                 Bm     A
And we slip through the seams, through the in between
     F#m          G        F#m        G
Of a truth and a lie, of a God and a sky
     F#m         G       Bm      A
Of a widow and bride, of you and I


Interlude: Bm x2

Bm
I won't let it happen again
Bm                      F#m
I won't let it happen again
    G       Bm  A       F#m
I won't let it happen again
    G       Bm  A       F#m
I won't let it happen again
    G       Bm  A       F#m
I won't let it happen again
    G       Bm  A       F#m
I won't let it happen again


Progression x4

End on G
