-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Cara aka Akumacy
Email: cara.heller@hotmail.com

Tuning: Standard

So, this is pretty easy to play. You can play it as chords, or pick it.
I just took the chords and turned them into picking.
I tried to add the chords where you're supposed to strum or pick them along with the 
lyrics, since I sometimes have a hard time getting the tempo and rhythm right, if the 
lyrics aren't there to help.
Fairly easy pattern. I am quite new to all of the tabbing (this is actually the first 
one I did that I actually uploaded since I was never really satisfied with the previous 
results :)).
I don't play guitar all too long either, so this might not be entirely right, but I 
spent a LOT of time on this and did my very best!
Enjoy,
Cara

            A                     E
I thought I told you, he'd be home soon
               A                           E
Couldn't help myself, you're too good to be true.
                  A                          E
I fall short each time, every time he ain't here,
                           A                 E
You and your charm creep closer, closer in here.

                     F#m                       D
Like a fool for fire I fall, with my pride and all.
                      B7
Like a bomb before explosion,
                 E
Ticking by your call.

            A                         E
You're the wiser one, disguised from greed,
               F#m                      D        E
And I'm just a child who belongs on her knees.


Chorus:

    D                 C#
But I found a boy who I love more,
     F#m
Than I ever did you before,
    D                 C#
So stand beside the river I cried,
    F#m           D
And let yourself down.

          A                                  E
So, you thought that I would crumble to my knees
               F#m                          D
At the first sight of you, crawling back to me

    E                 F#m
To whisper 'will you leave your man?'
                       D                    E            A
Cause you sweared that this time you can stand by me.
                 E
I won't stand by you.


Chorus:

Look how you want me now that I don't need you.
                            Am
I ain't yours for no taking,
                    E
You must be mistaken
                                       A
I could never look in your eyes, and settle for wrong

And ignore the right
