"Amateurs" written and performed by Andy Davis
Tabbed by Whitney Borisenok

Pretty basic song.  This is not exactly how Andy plays it, but these chords work 
You can mess around with some hammer-ons to sort of get the same kind of effect on the album.

    E
So this is how it feels
E                                               B
Lean in to kiss the one that you love and she turns a cheek
        E
Let me tell you how it feels
E                                                       B
Watching the walls of the house that you build start crumbling

         G#m
Yeah you feel
        A       E
Love is passing by
         G#m
One more time
           A       F#
But you’re not surprised

      E               B
Yeah, we’re all amateurs
     G#m                   C#    B
And heaven knows we’re not perfect
E                 B
We try to get it right
   G#m                       C#    B
We keep messing up but we’re learning


A               E        B
When the day is done, oohhh
C#      B
I wanna know
A
How do you love someone?
A (strum once)
How do you really love someone?

          E
If you’re further down the road
E                                          B
Put up a sign, everyone will show me which way to go
     E
Yeah maybe you can start a fire
                                             B
If your love is strong, we could just follow smoke


         G#m
Yeah you feel
            A         E
Like you’re broken down
         G#m       A         F#
Waiting ‘til the truth comes out


      E               B
Yeah, we’re all amateurs
    G#m                    C#    B

A (strum once)
How do you really love someone?
