Song: Burn Out Bright
Artist: Switchfoot
Album: Oh! Gravity
Written By: Jon Foreman

I did this from the acoustic version of Burn Out Bright which was offered up as a bonus 
on the Best Buy release oh Oh! Gravity. It can be used to do the regular version but it 
the acoustic a lot better, especially since an accurate tab is already avaliable.

Either strum slowly or pick within the chord

        D
Does it have to start with a broken heart
A
Broken dreams and bleeding parts
Em
We were young and the world was clear
Bm
Young ambition disappears
Em
I swore it would never come to this
    D
The average, the obvious
Em
How I'm still discontented down here
A
I'm still discontented

D                     A
If we've only got one try
         Em           Bm
If we've only got one life
   D                     A
If time was never on our side
       Em           Bm               D         A
Then before I die I want to burn out bright


     D
So a spark ignites in time and space
 A
Limping through this human race
    Em
You bite and claw your way back home
           Bm
But you’re running the wrong way
    Em
The future is a question mark
   D
Of kerosene and electric sparks
 Em
There’s still fire in you yet
      A
Yeah there’s still fire in you

         D            A
If we've only got one try
         Em           Bm
If we've only got one life
   D                     A
If time was never on our side
      Em            Bm               D
Then before I die I want to burn out bright
  A
Bright

Em                               Bm
I keep cleaning up the mess I’ve made
Em                               Bm
I keep cleaning up the mess I've made
A
I won't run away
Em                   Bm
I can’t sleep in the bed I’ve made
Em                   Bm            A
I can't sleep in the bed I've made

         D            A
If we've only got one try
(We've only got one try)
         Em            Bm
If we've only got one life
(We've only got one life)
    D                     A
If time was never on our side
(Time was never on our side)
      Em            Bm               D
Then before I die I want to burn out bright

Thats all, if there is any embellishment I didn't put here it follows those same chord 
but i think I have it all, if you need help its cjg6990@aol.com

Some of it is right but I will admit I did this long before I knew what I was doing. The past sneaks up on you sometimes.
