Tuning: Standard Tuning


This song is awesome and pretty simple to play because there is only 3 chords (Apologies 
I'm not sure what the proper
names for the chords are :( ), listen to the record to get
the strumming pattern as it's kind of hard to explain on here. Any corrections would be 
appreciated! :)

For the intro play chords A and B and then it will go straight into the song.


Verses: Chords A and B

Chorus: C, A, B

All the verses and choruses follow the same chord progression as shown above, for the 
finish on the A chord.


   A    B    C

e|-x----x----x----|
B|-x----x----x----|
G|-4----6----7----|
D|-5----7----7----|
A|-5----7----x----|
E|-x----x----7----|

VERSE 1

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

B
All around me new love, and it makes me sad
A
All around me feeling sure that you'll be back
B
If I imagine you
A
Body next to another

PRE-CHORUS

B
Stop crying to the ocean
A
Stop crying over me.
B
Stop worrying over nothing
A
Stop worrying over me.


CHORUS
C             A                    B (KEEP STRUMMING B CHORD UNTIL BEGINNING OF NEXT 
THEN BACK INTO SAME PROGRESSION )
So, it's been so long since you said,
'Well, I know what I want
And what I want is right here with you'

VERSE 2

On the drive back here, I was worried over nothing.
On the drive back there, tears spilling over something
When I imagined you
Body next to another

In the door, over there, build yourself a fright (?)
In the door, can I hear you saying you don't want to fight (?)

When I imagine you
Body next to another

PRE-CHORUS

Stop crying to the ocean
Stop worrying over me
Stop worrying over nothing
Stop worrying over me

CHORUS

So, it's been so long since you've said,
'Well, I know what I want,
And what I want's right here with you'

It's been so long since you said,
'Well, I know what I want,
And what I want's right here with you'


VERSE 3

In a flashback, you just brought attention to the mess
In a flash, hear you talk, 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 doing.
If I imagine you
Body next to another

CHORUS

So, it's been so long since you've said,
'Well, I know what I want,
And what I want's right here with you'

It's been so long since you said,
'Well, I know what I want,
And what I want's right here with you'

It's been so long since you've said,
'Well, I know what I want,
And what I want's right here with you'

It's been so long since you said,
'Well, I know what I want,
And what I want's right here with you'

The B chord is definitely off. See the Guitar Pro tab for a more accurate transcription.
