A Thousand Years - Boyce Avenue
Tabbed By: Kingsley

Hey guys this as accurate as I can get the tabs. 
I tabbed this song before Boyce Avenue released the video. 
So basically this is all ear without knowing what he is actually doing.
I have shown an image of these tabs to Alejandro and he says its
VERY close to their tabs. So work with it :]

Just to correct something, in the 'Once step closer' part Alejandro plays exactly like this:

Am 2ºC Em 4ºChord
One step cloooooo-ser

2ºChord: [x04400]
4ºChord: [x54030]
(sorry but i don't know the chords names) But anyway, you did a great job :)
