This Is "The End" (Featuring Lights)

Title: The End
Artist: Silverstein
Album: A Shipwreck In The Sand
Tuning: 1/2 step down


Every tabbed version of this truly excellent song was very incorrect, so I learned 
it by ear on my own and decided to tab it.
I honestly have no clue how accurate this is, i'm sure some parts of it are the 
exact way the band plays, and others aren't. I looked for a live version to verify 
any doubts I had but was unable to find anything helpful.

But the point is it sounds very very close to the album track. Enjoy.


The Following Chords Are Used In This Song:


         Cb5          Cb        Emaj9       Gbsus4       Ab5          E5
e|--------3-----------x-----------x-----------x-----------x-----------x---|
B|--------X-----------x-----------5-----------3-----------x-----------x---|
G|--------5-----------5-----------5-----------5-----------2-----------5---|
D|--------5-----------5-----------x-----------x-----------2-----------x---|
A|--------------------3-----------3-----------3-----------0-----------3---|
E|--------------------x-----------x-----------x-----------------------x---|

Any acronyms or symbols I use are pretty straightforward
/  = slide
po = pull off
ho = hammer on
x  = dampen
I think those are all you'll need to know for the tab.

Again, the tuning is 1/2 step down.

Everything else about the tab I will let you learn for yourself, i.e. strumming 
pattern, fingering, etc. simply because everybody plays differently and any tips I 
give will not accommodate every reader.

You can find the song on YouTube in case you don't have the mp3 to go off of. 
So go figure it out and have fun.

Bridge 1:

Cb5               Cb   Emaj9   Gb7sus4
   You were the sun

Cb5              Cb   Emaj9   Gb7sus4
   I was the one who worshiped you.

Cb5                   Cb   Emaj9 Gb7sus4
   My hands were your guns

Cb5                    Cb   Emaj9 Gb7sus4
   Your eyes were my muse.



Chorus:

       Ab5           Cb         E5   Gb7sus4    Emaj9   Gb7sus4
 And I knew you could never love me

       Ab5           Cb          E5   Gb7sus4    Emaj9   Gb7sus4
      I had so much sorrow   inside, you could    ne   -   ver

       Ab5           Cb          E5    Emaj9   Gb7sus4   E5
       Reach,    but can I still keep
       Ab5         Cb          E5 
                A place   in your heart?


Bridge 1:
You broke my heart
You promised me the moon and 
Stars. I fell for your dreams. I fell for your 
Lies, there was no other way you know I tried


Chorus:
And I knew you could never love me
I had so much sorrow inside, you could never 
Reach, but can I still keep
A place in your heart?

Chorus:

And I knew you could never love me
I had so much sorrow inside, you could never 
Reach, but I'll ask you this

Will you still miss me? (Yes I'll miss you) Do you love me? (Yes I love you)



Bridge 2:

Planes fill the 
Sky, we'll 
Both die tonight, we'll both die tonight

Hands from the 
Sky, swat us 
Away like flies, as we follow the light

Planes fill the 
Sky, we'll 
Both die tonight, we'll both die tonight

Hands from the 
Sky, swat us 
Away like flies, as we follow the light

We'll both die tonight
We'll both die tonight

Swat us away like flies
(We'll both die tonight)
As we follow the light
(As we follow the light)



Ending:

It sounded to me like there were two guitars playing at the end, so 
this probably isn't right. I basically put both guitars together
into one guitar in the most easy and efficient way. It might take
some effort to get the rhythm down, but give it a go and you should
be fine.

great, great! on the second part of the intro though, it doesnt do a 3\1 it plays two 0's on the eb string instead for both times. and if you notice it either has phaer or is two guitars. and your second bridge is mainly correct, but it kinda needs some fixing cuz it just dont sound totally right to me. but other than that definitely 5* love the song.
