The Format
"The First Single (Cause A Scene)"
Interventions + Lullabies

This is how to play the album version of The Format's "The First Single";
this is exactly how the song is played live, as well. There is no need for
a capo. This is how I play the song, also, so I wrote the tab out and
then played it again just to make sure it sounds good -- it does.

I included all chords/lyrics, because the verses and choruses don't play out
exactly the same each time, and when I'm learning a song, I don't like to
read a lazy tab. Enjoy, this song is not difficult for a beginner to learn.

(Note, you'll easily be able to tell if your guitar is in tune with this
song's intro: the fifth fret on B and the open E note should ring in
harmony, obviously.)

[Verse]
C#m                            A               E
I can't stand to think about a heart so big it hurts like hell
C#m                                A                    E
Oh my God, I gave my best, but for three whole years to end like this
     C#m            A     E      C#m             A        E
Well do you want to fall apart?  I can't stop if you cant start
C#m            A     E            C#m
Do you want to fall apart?  Oh, I could if you can
                       A                              E
try to fix what I've undone 'Cause I hate what I've become!


[Chorus]
E                   B
You know me, or you think you do, you just don't seem to see
A                                     C#m          B
I've been waiting all this time to be, something I can't define
         E              B                                     A
So let's cause a scene, clap our hands and stomp our feet, or something,
                          C#m          B         C#m A  E
Yeah something, I've just got to get myself over me


[Verse]
C#m                                  A             E
I could stand to do without, all the people I have left behind
C#m                                          A
What's the point in going around when it's a straight line baby,
  E
A straight line down
         C#m            A      E      C#m      A       E
So let's make a list of who we need,  it's not much if anything
C#m                  A      E              C#m
Let's make a list of who we need and we'll throw it away
          B             A                        E
'Cause we don't need anyone, no we don't need anyone!


[Chorus]
E                   B
You know me, or you think you do you just don't seem to see
A                                     C#m          B
I've been waiting all this time to be, something I can't define
         E              B                                    A
So let's cause a scene, clap our hands and stomp our feet or something,
                          C#m          B         A
Yeah something, I've just got to get myself over me
                       E     B    A
And I hate what I've become.


[Bridge]
             E 
You know the night life is just not for me
               B                     A
'Cause all you really need are a few good friends
              E               C#m
Don't want to go out and be on my own,
              A                  E
You know they started something I can't stand
          C#m     E           A         E
You leave for the city, well count me out
       B                                 
'Cause all this time is wasted on, well, everything I've done


[Chorus]
E                   B
You know me, or you think you do, you just don't seem to see
A                                     C#m          B
I've been waiting all this time to be, something I can't define
         E              B                                     A
So let's cause a scene, clap our hands and stomp our feet, or something!
                          C#m          B         E
Yeah something, I've just got to get myself over me


[Chorus]
E                   B
You know me, or you think you do, you just don't seem to see
A                                  C#m             B
I've been waiting all this time to be, something I can't define
         E              B                                     A
So let's cause a scene, clap our hands and stomp our feet, or something!
                          C#m          B         C#m  B
Yeah something, I've just got to get myself over me, yeah.
     A              E
Over me, yeah, over me

They've got their guitars tuned half a step down, at least when they're performing it live. So if you want to play along with their live-performance, you got to play...

Eb Bb
You know me, or you think you do, you just don't seem to see
Ab Cm Bb
I've been waiting all this time to be, something I can't define
Eb Bb Ab
So let's cause a scene, clap our hands and stomp our feet, or something!
Cm Bb Eb
Yeah something, I've just got to get myself over me

...and so on. But the chords are right indeed.
