Tabbed by: Kellan6

Tuning: Standard
Capo: 2

All chords relative to capo.

    E6   B      E    F#      A    E/F#  B*  A*


E6         B   E
I've got a hunger
F#          A
Twisting my stomach into knots.
E6        B          E           F#   A
  That my tongue has tied off.

E6         B    E
My brain's repeating
F#                 A
"If you've got an impulse let it out"
E6         B     E       F#      A
  But they never make it past my mouth.

E*    E/F#
Bop ba
B*          A*
This is the sound of settling
E*    E/F#    B*       A*
Bop ba Bop ba

E6  B   E   F#  A (x2)

E6           B      E
Our youth is fleeting,
F#          A
Old age is just around the bend.
E6      B          E     F#    A
  And I can't wait to go gray.

E6               B    E
And I'll sit and wonder
F#        A
 Of every love that could've been.
E6           B          E         F#           A
 If I'd only thought of something charming to say.

E*    E/F#
Bop ba
B*          A*
This is the sound of settling
E*    E/F#    B*       A*
Bop ba Bop ba

E6         B   E
I've got a hunger
F#           A (let ring)
twisting my stomach into knots.


During the final chorus, after you repeat it twice, the third and fourth times can also 
switched up to play it as if it was the verse.
i.e.:play the verse guitar with the chorus singing.

I realize these aren't the actual chord names, and that I left out the "E" above the E chord diagram. Whoops. Oh well, you get the picture.
