G                              D                             Cadd9      A7sus4
Broken yolk in western sky, my stomach turned, my mouth went dry
           G                 D
I knew I'd never known fear before
  G
I pressed my palms into the seat
     D                             Cadd9      A7sus4
Took one last look at you next to me
         G                 D         C                       G
I kicked open the sliding door and I threw myself out on the road
C                     G   Gsus2    Em                   A7sus4
Torn flesh and broken bones in the gravel and scattered trash;
  C               G
I faded into your past.
G
I know it was a cowardly thing to do and that
   D                       Cadd9      A7sus4
An explanation is not an excuse
G                       D          G
I just want you to understand that love is only a type of greed
   D                        Cadd9       A7sus4
Of equal portions want and need
        G                  D         C                  G
And you cannot divorce the two and I could not sleep at all
             C                  G   Gsus2    Em                A7sus4
With all the rumble strip close calls in the gravel and patchy grass;
  C               G
I faded into your past.



              When you think twice...

I think A7 suffices where you have put A7sus4. It just sounds better IMO

This tab says Capo 2nd Fret but it's actually no capo. The album version of this song is in the key of G. Other than that, this tab is excellent.

You're thinking of the very recent remake he did on his album "Former Lives". This version (and most others) are tabbing the original which can be heard here -> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Eoy7K3Fwn4&feature=kp .
