Tabber: Jake Chen (BU YAH)

This was hell in a handbasket to figure out, but in the end sooooo worth it. 
There's another tab of that song which in my opinion is also 100% correct 
but he performs that on a different acoustic version of the song. 
The tab is pretty self explanatory, chorus is a bit tricky though

Please, questions and comments to darc_blade@hotmail.com


Intro/Verse - You have to improv alot here, he has a funky beat to go with it, 
              which just makes it all the more fun. But here are the chords.

E|------|
B|------|
G|-4--6-|
D|-4--5-|
A|-2--4-|
E|-3----|

"Ooh Ooh" Part - in some versions, he still plays the above for this part. 

E|-------|
B|-------|
G|-7--14-|
D|-5--12-|
A|-------|
E|-3--10-|

Chorus - "And I will wait to find" part. 

E|-0-0--0-0--0--5-|
B|-2h3--2h3--2--3-|
G|-2h4--2h4--2--2-|
D|-0-0--0-0--0--4-|
A|--------------2-|
E|-3-3--3-3--2----|

Bridge - "so much wasted in the..." End on the last chord for the last stanza

E|--------------|---|
B|--------------|---|
G|-14-14--12-12-|-9-|
D|-14-12--12-10-|-9-|
A|-12-12--10-10-|-7-|
E|-13-13--11-11-|-8-|

A|------10-|
E|-12/0----|

---Verse---
   I worry, I weigh three times my body 
   I worry, I throw my fear around
   But this morning, there's a calm I can't explain 
   The rock here has melted, only diamonds now remain

   Ooh ooh ooh ooh

---Verse---
   By the time I recognize this moment
   This moment will be gone
   But I will bend the light, pretend that it somehow lingered on
   Well all I got's 

   Ooh ooh ooh ooh

---Chorus---
   And I will wait to find
   If this will last forever
   And I will wait to find
   If this will last forever
   And I will pay no mind
   When I won't and it won't cause it can't
   It just can't
   It's not supposed to

---Verse---
   Is there a second in time that I looked around
   Did I sail through or drop my anchor down
   Is anything enough to kiss the ground
   And say I'm here now and she's here now

   Ooh ooh ooh ooh
   Ooh ooh ooh ooh

---Bridge---
   So much wasted in the afternoon
   So much sacred in the month of June
   How bout you

---Chorus---
   And I will wait to find
   If this will last forever
   And I will wait to find 
   That it won't and it won't it won't 
   And I will pay no mind
   worry about the way the weather
   And I will waste no time
   Remembering our life together

hey man i used to think he played the intro that way but he actually does something slightly different for the second chord of it. first chord is right.
tab lingo from top down is x-5-6-4-3-x (basically just adding a higher note)
that's one of his favorite chord shapes to use. on one version he individually plucks the strings real quick in a transition, and there are clearly 4 strings being played if you listen to it carefully. its the version where he plays the chorus differently than the album.
god tab tho.
