A Great Big World - I Don't Wanna Love Somebody Else
From the album: Is There Anybody Out There? (2014)
This is my first acoustic tab so comment for any corrections and please rate

The live version is played with the capo on the 3rd fret, if you want to play it
with capo 3 you can use these tabs though I think that it might sound a little off-tone.
You can also use capo 8.


Capo 5

There arent really verses and choruses so this is how I named them:

Verse 1:
Oh, I built a world around you
Oh, you had me in a dream, 
I lived in every word you said

Chorus:
The stars had aligned
I thought that I found you
And I don't wanna love somebody else

Verse 2:
Oh, we left it all unspoken
Oh, we buried it alive 
and now it's screaming in my head

Verse 3:
Oh, I shouldn't go on hoping
Oh, that you will change your mind 
and one day we could start again

Chorus
Well I don't care if loneliness kills me
I don't wanna love somebody else

Verse 4:
Oh, I thought that I could change you
Oh, I thought that we would be the greatest story that I tell

Chorus:
I know that it's time to tell you it's over
But I don't wanna love somebody else

On the chorus, he goes from G to Emaj to Am to C to (a cheater's) F then back to G and then back to C for the resolve... see him play it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l4P2f8Q4cKc

Yeah you are right but he played with capo 3 and the tabs are a bit different with capo 3.
These tabs are a way to play the song, the original is a little bit different.
If you make the right tabs for capo 3 I will give u 5 stars ;)

Yeah, I agree. He does capo 8 in the album but live he does 3. See my video here for the tab that I used and that I think is correct (based off of yours)...
