BLIND MELON - CHANGE

From the Album 'Blind Melon' (1992)

Songwriters: Shannon Hoon; Brad Smith; Christopher Thorn; Glen Graham; Roger 
Stevens.

A friend of mine introduced me to this song recently, and quickly added to my list 
of 'must knows'.  I thought it deserved a more thorough transcription, with full 
lyrics and chord timings.  Give the song a few listens (or check out the video on 
YouTube) to get a better idea of when to use the riff, lyric timing, etc.
As this is my first tab contribution, please feel free to give me any feedback, 
positive or negative.

Thanks & enjoy!

INTRO (Play chord riff 2x)


1ST VERSE:

A                              G
  I don't feel the sun's commin out today 
       D              G            A
Stayin in, it's gonna find another way.
A                     G
As I sit here in this misery, 
        D                        G
I don't think I'll ever know lord, 
                 A
See the sun from here.

CHORUS:

D       G             A   
   And oh, as I fade away.  
D              G              A
   They'll all look at me and say, and they'll say,
D                 G           A
 Hey look at him, I'll never live that way.
          G   D
But thats ok,  They're just afraid of change.

   A       Asus4 A  Asus2  A  

2ND VERSE:

A                                  G
And When you feel life ain't worth livin'
                          D
You've gotta stand up and take a look around you 
     G                  A
Then look way up to the sky.
A                                  G
And when your deepest thoughts are broken
        D                                G
Keep on dreamin boy, cause when you stop dreamin
            A
It's time to die.

D               G                 A
  And as we all play the darts of tomorrow
D                G                         A
  Some ways will work and other ways we'll play.
D               G                   A
  But I know we can't all stay here forever
             G        D                        A
So I want to write my words on the face of the day,

 (and then they'll paint it).

   They'll all look at me and say, and they'll say,

   Hey look at him and where he is these days,
             G    D                 A
When life is hard you have to change.
