Tabbed by: acoustic-fish
Tuning: EADGBe (standard)

one of the best songs on Warnings/Promises, there is only one tab for this on the
and its not so good, so heres how i play it.

the tabs are not in the right strumming pattern or timing, so listen to the song. this
just a guideline.

by the harbour, i harbour the strangest memories
older than i could ever be, stranded in nostalgia
so tonight i'll try harder, but it's hard to fix this spotlight on me
in a cast that's taken places, i'm not sure of where i want to be

stand up, stand up, and stand out, i'll climb el capitan
and jump off to cheers from the crowd
stand up, stand up, and stand out, and i hope you take your camera
to photograph my tears as they hit the ground

no one even listens, the same way that no one ever laughs
i'm taking the car out of the snow i'm wondering where the summer went to circled by 
secrets, i'm hoping they dont include me
at least i'm in good company, because there's no one else around except me

stand up, stand up, and stand out, i'll climb el capitan
just to watch the world slow down
stand up, stand up, and stand out, and i hope you take your camera
silence makes the loudest sound

it seems far too easy to say the same thing
i'll choose my own way to use my life up
finally found a new way to say the same things in imaginary ways
i'll use my life up

you were looking at pictures in the distance hoping to see the future
in your pictures of the distance hoping to see the future
looking at pictures in the distance hoping to see the future
through your pictures of the distance hoping to see the future
looking at pictures in the distance hoping to see the future
in your pictures of the distance hoping to see the future
looking at pictures in the distance hoping to see the future
in your pictures of the distance hoping to see the future
in your pictures of the distance hoping to see the future
