This is my first tab but I think it is spot on.

Relative to the Capo
Dsus2 (x,x,0,2,3,0)
Gm    (3,5,5,3,3,3,)

Note: It sounds cool to pick the melody along with the chords on the top three strings. 
sounds closer to the piano in the recording. Email(djchadde@mtu.edu) if you want help 
this. I didn't feel like tabbing it all out. I might post in the future.

Also note the funky IV to iv change at the end.


Intro: Dsus2

Dsus2                  A
Do you remember how we met?
Dsus2              A
Silhouetted by the lights...
Dsus2                       A             Bm                A
You were drunk and tried to take a mental picture with your hands
Dsus2                A
I was thinking about that
Dsus2                A
And a bunch of other things
Dsus2               A
Stop looking at the floor...
          Bm              A               G		Bm
I need to pour out this expansive dose of words.

  A       G		Bm
I can't explain...

  A       G  Dsus2
I need to be alone.

Dsus2     		A
I know the timing isn't great
Dsus2				 A
But these things, you just can't plan.
Dsus2                A
I just need a little time
         Bm          A
So I can find myself again
Dsus2                    A
'Cause I get buried underneath
Dsus2                         A
All the things they think you are
Dsus2                   A               Bm
And I'm too tired to pretend it doesn't hurt
To be left out

Dsus2                  A
I had a pocket full of dreams
Dsus2                  A
But I gave them all to you
Dsus2                   A
Now I think I want them back
           Bm             A        G		Bm
So can you tell me if I'm crazy or confused?

      A    G		Bm
Don't ever change
    A       G 		Bm
The way you are
     A     G       Gm   Dsus2	(play the last G as a barre chord)
I've never loved anyone more.

A	Dsus2

End on Dsus2
