By: Roumen 

Ok, i know this song has been tabbed and there are pretty good versions of it,
but i wanted to perfect. it for those people out there who really want to play
the song as the band does it, i made this tab by checking other versions of this
song (thx to anyone who tabbed it before) and watching a live performance at
Music Withour Borders, just look it up in Kazaa or whatever, the camera doesnt
show much what theyre playing but it helped me in some parts, but this is how i
play this song so im not saying its how they do it

btw this song rules

tuning:	EADGBe (standard)

guitar 1:	Deryck
guitar 2:	Dave

/ = slide
x = dead note
h = hammer-ons
p = pull-offs
pm = palm-mute

Go!

	     I never...     this in fact...    wanted...       ...be



Verse 1

You said it once before, you don't do those things you used to anymore.
You say in doubt, were fading out, forgetting who we used to be.

Chorus

Cause I will bring you down,
I don't want to miss, I don't think you can handle this.
You've lost what you can't find; it's never what you had in mind.

Verse 2

You take it with a smile; it's so easy when you're always in denial
Just in time but out of line I can't make all the same mistakes you want me to.

Chorus 2

Cause I will bring you down,
I don't want to miss, I don't think you can handle this.
You've lost what you can't find; it's never what you had in mind.

Bridge, i guess

Your giving up you know it's not what you need.
And it's true what you're going through.
Try so hard not listen to everything I never say.

Chorus 3

Cause I will bring you down,
I don't want to miss, I don't think you can handle this.
Cause I will bring you down,
I don't want to miss, I don't think you can handle this
You've lost what you can't find; it's never what you had in mind.

Outro

I'm getting over getting used to,
And after all that I put you through now I see I'm not the only one.

I never thought It'd ever come to,
This in fact was never what you wanted from me or how you meant it to be.
