Hello. I thought I'd have a go at one of Lewis's immense new songs from his debut album "The Morning".
This is my first tab so I apologise for any errors. 
 

****Tuning is a full step down - DGCFAD**** 

I've initially done the chords in the familiar standard shape so it's easier for beginners 
to reference. In this tuning the E technically drops to a D and the Asus2 drops to a Gsus2
but yeah you know what I mean. 

Chord key. 

E - 022100
Asus2 - X02200 -  (in the verses he does a couple of strums of X02100 and X02220 live to emulate the "ooh ooooh
                   ooh ooh" backing vocals on the record by releasing his ring finger and hammering on with 
                   his little finger, try it and you'll get it). 
Bm - X24432
C#m - X46654. 

Intro 

E   Asus2. 




E                                        Asus2      
    Bite my tongue, you wouldn't hear me anyway 

E                                                Asus2
    Hold my nerve, while I wait for the fires to fade



Bm                                        Asus2                               E
    I'm seeing every single word you don't say but I feel like I've seen it all


Bm                                    Asus2                     E
    How come every time you ask me to stay, you're halfway gone? 


                        Asus2                         C#m
If this is the easy way out, then why am I finding it hard as hell

               Bm          Asus2             E
I'm Wide awake waiting for sleep to steal my doubt

                           Asus2                               C#m
And everything we had that hurts has come back to haunt us but ten times worse

               Bm          Asus2
I'm holding on so tight it hurts

                          E 
So why are we holding on? 


*turnaround is the same as intro, with the E from the end of the chorus followed by the Asus2* 



E                                      Asus2
   Close my eyes, am I slowly slipping away

E                                                     Asus2
   If I bide my time I'll get lost like a tear in the rain

Bm                                    Asus2               E
    How come every time you ask me to stay you're halfway gone? 


                        Asus2                         C#m
If this is the easy way out, then why am I finding it hard as hell

               Bm          Asus2             E 
I'm wide awake waiting for sleep to steal my doubt

                           Asus2                               C#m
And everything we had that hurts has come back to haunt us but ten times worse

               Bm          Asus2
I'm holding on so tight it hurts

                          E
So why are we holding on? 




Why are we holding on? x4 



Repeat chorus 


(last line of the song in the last chorus) 
         
                       E 
Why I can't let you go 





Have fun and enjoy this beaut of a song. Davey x
