This tab is pretty close, there is so much blending in the song, that it is hard to hear
a lot of the exact harmonies, so I think there are probably a few chord variations I am
missing that hold the thing together, the solos are pretty close, they should at least
give you an idea of where you should be and what you should be playing. Enjoy!

I’ve had just enough of the spotlight, when it burns bright

To see how it gets in the blood

D
   And I’ve tasted my share of the sweet life, and the wild ride
Dsus2                    Asus4        A
   And found a little is not quite enough
    Dsus2
I know how I can stray
        Dsus2
And how fast my heart could change

       D
Empty me
       G
Of the selfishness inside
       Bm      A            G
Every vain ambition and the poison of my pride
        D                G
And any foolish thing my heart holds to
       Bm         A                  G
Lord empty me <unsure here> so I can be filled with you

D                               G                    D
   I’ve seen just enough of the quick buys, of the best lies
Dsus2                         Asus4        A
   To know how prodigals could be drawn away
                   Dsus2
I know how I can stray
        Dsus2
And how fast my heart could change

       D
Empty me
       G
Of the selfishness inside
       Bm      A            G
Every vain ambition and the poison of my pride
        D                G
And any foolish thing my heart holds to
       Bm         A                  G
Lord empty me <unsure here> so I can be filled with you

Bridge:
          Bm            A              G               G
Cause everything is a lesser thing compared to you, compared to you

Cause everything is a lesser thing compared to you so I surrender all

Awesome, glad to see someone did this so soon after the song was released! The words that go in the "unsure here" and "something" spots are "of me"... "Lord empty me of me so I can be filled with you."

I want to post or [tab]
