It's leaving me alone and so blue

Still I'll always dream but I'll never own  you
          G#                   C#
Making believe, it's all I can do               G#

My plans for the future will never come true

The "A" should be a G# of course and I assume this was just a mistake because the rest of the tab is perfect. Better yet is to transpose this down 1 semitone and change what is then a G# to a G, or down 6, changing the D# to a D. It's an obvious "yikes" when you sing "It's leaving me" that the note given is a half step too high. I didn't think people should be dissuaded from taking a look at the tab, since it's such a pretty song and such an easy fix... so I gave it 5 stars. Hope that's O.K.
