                             AMNESIA - 5 Seconds of Summer
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by:KD1234
Hey guys! This is the tab for the studio version of Amnesia which was released today (*cries*).
From watching videos of the boys playing this live you can tell that 
Michael plays the intro and verses a bit further up the neck of the guitar and uses barre chords rather than
open ones, but this way is a bit easier and sounds just as good when you play along with the song.
This is the first tab I've ever done and I figured it out by ear so feel free to let me know if you see any 
mistakes or anything and I hope you find it helpful.
Also, I prefer to play the chorus using barre chords and that's also how Michael plays it, but regular chords 
sound good too. Enjoy!

Tuning: Standard

[Chorus]

(The chorus is just the same 4 chords repeated and the strumming pattern is ddd ududud)

       D                                 A
I remember the day you told me you were leaving
      Bm                                G
I remember the makeup running down your face 
         D                                A
And the dreams you left behind you didn't need them
      Bm                       G
Like every single wish we ever made
  D                                 A
I wish that I could wake up with amnesia
     Bm                             G
And forget about the stupid little things
         D                               A  
Like the way it felt to fall asleep next to you
        Bm                G         
And the memories I never can escape
 
'Cuz I'm not fine at all.

I remember the day you told me you were leaving

I remember the makeup running down your face

[Bridge]

    A*               A*              Bm*      Bm*
If today I woke up with you right beside me
     G*               G*                  D*    D*
Like all of this was just some twisted dream
      A*            A*          Bm*    Bm*
I'd hold you closer than I ever did before
       G(start strumming softly)
And you'd never slip away 

e|---2--|
B|---3--|
G|------|
D|------|

E|------|x  And you'd never hear me say


(Repeat chorus once and play this for the last part which I just point blank wasn't ready for, I don't know 
about you)

I just realised now that that actually made no sense when I wrote it down so I wouldn't worry about it :)
