Back For Good - Take That (Boyce Avenue version)
Tabbed by: sernik92
Email: sernik92@gmail.com

Hi. :) I was so excited about Boyce Avenue's version of 'Back For Good' that I decided 
to make a tab of it.
That's my first tab anyway. It's pretty much D-Em-G-A progression, but some of you may 
be pissed about bridge or weird voicings of chords that Alejandro uses in his great performance.
So here we go! ;-)

Tuning: standard (and capo on 1st fret)

---Lyrics---

I guess now it's time for me to give up
I feel it's time
Got a picture of you beside me
Got your lipstick mark still on your coffee cup, oh yeah

Got a fist of pure emotion
Got a head of shattered dreams
Gotta leave it, gotta leave it all behind now

Whatever I said, whatever I did I didn't mean it
I just want you back for good
I want you back for good
Whenever I'm wrong just tell me the song and I'll sing it
You'll be right and understood
I want you back for good

Unaware but underlined I figured out this story
It wasn't good
But in the corner of my mind I celebrated glory
But that was not to be

In the twist of separation you excelled at being free
Can't you find a little room inside for me

Whatever I said, whatever I did I didn't mean it
I just want you back for good
I want you back for good
Whenever I'm wrong just tell me the song and I'll sing it
You'll be right and understood
I want you back for good

And we'll be together, this time is forever
We'll be fighting and forever we will be
So complete in our love
We will never be uncovered again

Whatever I said, whatever I did I didn't mean it
I just want you back for good
I want you back for good
Whenever I'm wrong just tell me the song and I'll sing it
You'll be right and understood
You see I want you back for good

Whatever I said, whatever I did I didn't mean it
I just want you back for good
You see I want you back for good
Whenever I'm wrong just tell me the song and I'll sing it
You'll be right and understood
You see I want you back for good

I guess now it's time, that you came back for good

---Enjoy! :)---

After posting a tab, I found out that Alejandro during the bridge plays:

e|-2----2--0------------|
B|-0----3--2h3p2--------|
G|-0----2--2------------|
D|-0----0--0------(x2)--|
A|-x----0--x------------|
E|-3----x--x------------|

Also, at the end of bridge you can slide notes on B and G string only. Play what sounds best to you. :)

I hope you like it, cheers. :-)

Nice tab, many thanks
Dare I say that this is better than the original?
Alejandro is a superb acoustic guitarist.
