STANDARD TUNING.
Tabbed by: Francis C

NOTES: I don't think it matters whether you use barre chords or regular chords, in the 
it sounds like they play with barre chords but I prefer regular chords.

INTRO:

GUITAR 1

e|---2-----2-----2-|
B|-----3-----3-----|
G|-4-----4-----4---|
D|-----------------|
A|-----------------|
E|-----------------|

e|---2-----2-----2-|
B|-----3-----3-----|
G|-----------------|
D|-5-----5-----5---|
A|-----------------|
E|-----------------|

e|---0-----0-----0-|
B|-----3-----3-----|
G|-2-----2-----2---|
D|-----------------|
A|-----------------|
E|-----------------|

e|---0-----0-----0-|
B|-----3-----3-----|
G|-2-----2-----2---|
D|-----------------|
A|-----------------|
E|-----------------|

REPEAT FOR FOUR TIMES.
MEANWHILE...

INTRO:
GUITAR 2***
(Comes in on the third loop of GUITAR 1)

e|--------------------|
B|--------------------|
G|-9-/-11-\-9-\-7-/-9-|
D|-x-/-x--\-x-\-x-/-x-|
A|-7-/-9--\-7-\-5-/-7-|
E|--------------------|

***(I'm not sure if I correctly tabbed that out, but strum the guitar
again when you get down to the 5th fret, otherwise it'll sound off.)

VERSE:

The verse is simply the chords Bm, G, D, and A.
One strum for each bar.

GUITAR 1: (So here's another day, I'll spend away from you...)

e|-2-------3--------2-------0-----|
B|-3-------3--------3-------2-----|
G|-4-------0--------2-------2-----|
D|-4-------0--------0-------2-----|
A|-2-------2----------------0-----|
E|-2-------3----------------------|

GUITAR 2:
After the piano riff comes in, every second bar the second guitar will do this:

e|------------------------------|
B|------------------------------|
G|----xx-9-/-11-----------------|
D|----xx-x-/-x------------------|
A|----xx-7-/-9------------------|
E|------------------------------|

**"x" indicates strumming muted notes.


PRECHORUS:

The pre-chorus is simply the chords Em and G.

e|-0----------3------|
B|-0----------3------|
G|-0----------0------|
D|-2----------0------|
A|-2----------2------|
E|-0----------3------|

***The simplest way to play this is to strum each chord 8 times, but embelish it if you 
to.

CHORUS: (And I do want to show you I will...)

The chords for the chorus are D, A, Bm, G.
Listen to the song for strumming pattern.

e|-2-2---0-0-0---2-2---3-3-3-------|
B|-3-3---2-2-2---3-3---3-3-3-------|
G|-2-2---2-2-2---4-4---0-0-0-------|
D|-0-0---2-2-2---4-4---0-0-0-------|
A|-------0-0-0---2-2---2-2-2-------|
E|---------------2-2---3-3-3-------|

Repeat this progression for three times then:

Em, A

e|-0-------0------|
B|-0-------2------|
G|-0-------2------|
D|-2-------2------|
A|-2-------0------|
E|-0-------0------|
***Strum each chord four times, embelish if you want to.

REPEAT INTRO, (but only twice through rather than four times through)
THEN VERSE,
THEN CHORUS,

THEN...

BRIDGE: (Take me with you, I start to miss you...)

e|-5---5---5---5----------|
B|------------------------|
G|---7---7---7---7--------|
D|------------------------|
A|------------------------|
E|------------------------|

**Repeat this for five times,

THEN:
Listen to the song for the strumming pattern to this part.
D, (x indicates strumming muted notes)

e|-2-2---xx--x--xx--x-2-2--xx--x--xx--x---|
B|-3-3---xx--x--xx--x-3-3--xx--x--xx--x---|
G|-2-2---xx--x--xx--x-2-2--xx--x--xx--x---|
D|-0-0---xx--x--xx--x-0-0--xx--x--xx--x---|
A|----------------------------------------|
E|----------------------------------------|

THEN:
Bm, G, D, (A)

e|-2----3----2---(0)-|
B|-3----3----3---(2)-|
G|-4----0----2---(2)-|
D|-4----0----0---(2)-|
A|-2----2--------(0)-|
E|-2----3------------|

The simplest way to play the above progression would be to strum each chord eight times, 
it if you'd like to.

Hold on the A coming out of the bridge, when he goes into the chorus it's piano only for 
first time,

Then he joins in with the piano:

Bm, G, D, A
e|-2----3----2---0-|
B|-3----3----3---2-|
G|-4----0----2---2-|
D|-4----0----0---2-|
A|-2----2--------0-|
E|-2----3----------|

Play this exactly like you played the bridge, only now you play the A chord.

Repeat the above chord progression two times, then stop for the acapella part.

| /  slide up
| \  slide down
| h  hammer-on
| p  pull-off
| ~  vibrato
| +  harmonic
| x  Mute note

END!

***That's it, hope I didn't do TOO bad for my first tab.
Shout out to Hugh Boyd Grad Class of '09, we're almost there!
Thanks to Christine B for helping me with the tab,
as well as Pia M and Le-Ann J for trying out the tab before I published it.
And Marianas Trench, for making such an awesome tune.
Also, thanks to the crappy Richmond, BC weather; if it wasn't pouring outside I wouldn't 
tabbing this out.

Hey, thanks for tabbing this song =)
I think it's 0 on the e string, not 2
And it'd be easier if you play 0 on the G string instead of 5 on D string..
