                                    Type "ultimate guitar tabs" in Apple

                                    search to find the application.
So I'm pretty sure this is 95% correct (don't hold it against me as I am open to
suggestions). Tried to get the tuning as precise as I could because the other tabs are in
standard tuning. So, for those like me who prefer exact tuning: give it a go and comment 
below for any suggestions, etc.

When you wake what is it that you think of most?
When your bed is empty do you really sleep alone?
If I imagine you, body next to another.

All around me new love and it makes me sad.
All around me feel assured that you'll be back,
If I imagine you, body next to another.

On the drive back here I was worrying over nothing
On the drive back there tears spilling over something
When I imagine you, body next to another

In the door and you're there and you're sorry for the fright 
In the door, can I hear you saying you don't wanna fight
When I imagine you, body next to another

In a flash it's back to you, just brought attention to the mess.
In a flash you're on top begging me to understand.
If I imagine you, body next to another.
You drop in for a minute and I'm sorry that I didn't drop in sooner
just to see you and see what you've been doin'.
Well I imagine you, body next to another.

This is awesome, thanks! I've spent so long trying to figure out the tuning to this thing. I think I've been missing that D to A drop. Good job, thanks for sharing.

I keep coming back to this because something just doesn't sound quite right, but it's really close. Do you think the B string should be dropped to an A? Either way, guitar 2 doesn't seem to sound good when I play it over guitar one through my looping pedal.
Maybe I'm wrong, but I thought I'd put it out there.
