If You Only Knew
Maroon 5
Japagermanesian (tabber)
Novice difficultly unless you include solo stuff that's interemediate

I didn't bother to tab to solos but theyre prolly improv neways
this is mainly a piano chord song so i just did the basic idea by ear
keep in mind this is very BASIC
explanations first then song

Verses
C5, A5, A5, G5
think one two THREE for rhythm maybe pluck just the bass note for the first two hang on 
three a bit
my altered version
Cm7 Am7 A7 G (power chord with added 3rd on 4th string or G played like an F without the 
highest strings)

2nd half of verses/ bridge to chorus
B5, C5, D5, D5?, D#5 or Eb5

Chorus
C5, E5, F5, D5

guitar solo at end is over the chorus progression the bridge instumental part is pretty 
a do whatever you want part with slides and stuff
okay heres the song with chords placed as close as possible the verse is weird when 
the vocals to the chords

Every bus, every train, every cab, every lane is jammed,

     C5              A5          A5         G5
So I look to the sky and I reach for planes with my hands,
