______________________________



G                           
You're not her
                        C                D        
Though I try to see you differently
G         
I toe the line
                           C             D
See I'm searching for what used to be, mine  ooohhhh
G        
I Saw your eyes
                       C                 D     
Then I saw her staring back at me
G          
And I will try
G                         C             
To find another one who's suited to me
   D   
As well as her



C           D        Em
I've moved, far away from you
G
And I want to
C       D              Em
See you here beside me dear
                  G
but things aren't clear



C                 D
And we never even tried
              Em
We never even talked
              G
We never even thought in the long run
C               D
Whenever it was painful
               Em
Whenever I was away
    G
I'd miss you
          C
I miss you



G
She was mine

I was hers
               C            D
And all that's in between
G
if she would cry

I would shelter her
    C                          D 
And keep her from the darkness that will be



C           D        Em
If I moved, far away from you
G
And I want to
C       D              Em
See you here beside me dear
                  G
but things aren't clear



C                 D
And we never even tried
              Em
We never even talked
              G
We never even thought in the long run
C               D
Whenever it was painful
               Em
Whenever I was away
    G
I'd miss you
          C            D
I miss you



G                     
Don't trap me in, it's not my time
C                       
If you cut me deep then I might lie

And if you  
Em         D              G            C          
Scar and leave me, like a sunburn
G
Don't trap me in, it's not my time
C
if you cut deep then I might lie
Em
And you
            D                           C
Scarred and left me, like a sunburn



C                 D
And we never even tried
              Em
We never even talked
              G
We never even thought in the long run
C               D
Whenever it was painful
               Em
Whenever I was away
    G
I'd miss you
          C
I miss you

***Although the chords above are correct, use these variations in order to match 
Ed's sound better: ***


For G chords use this:

e|x-------|
B|0-------|
G|0-------|
D|9-------|
A|10------|
E|x-------|

For C chords use this:

e|x-------|
B|0-------|
G|0-------|
D|2-------|
A|3-------|
E|x-------|

You can also use this slight variation as a C chord:
- Note: This works best if you're playing the other chords as regular chords.

For D chords use this:

e|x-------|
B|0-------|
G|0-------|
D|4-------|
A|5-------|
E|x-------|

You can also use this slight variation as a D chord:
- Note: This works best if you're playing the other chords as regular chords.

e|0-------|
B|3-------|
G|0-------|
D|4-------|
A|5-------|
E|x-------|

For Em chords use this:

e|0-------|
B|0-------|
G|0-------|
D|5-------|
A|7-------|
E|0-------|

______________________________

^^^ These chords sound best if you play the root note and the one above it at the 
same time, as this is what I think Ed does. 
For example, if you wanted to play a G chord, on the first strum of the chord be 
sure to emphasise these two notes:

e|--------|
B|--------|
G|--------|
D|9-------|
A|10------|
E|--------|
  

Hope that helped you learn a quality song! :)

I think you meant this for the D chord...at least that's what sounds better.

Nice Tab btw, I just wish there was one with the picking.

Yeah, that's the chord that I meant. Like a C chord but shifted up two frets. Sorry for the mistake. :)
