this is the chords for the song treading water by alex clare.
i'm not sure about the a major in the pre-chorus, but the rest must be right.
if the lyrics aren't correct, i just copied them, but i thinks they're less 
important than the chords.
i did this tab by listening, so there might not be everything correct, but anyways, have fun.



intro:

E A C D



verse:

E             A               C D
My heart just sank the moment I saw you
E          A         C           D
You're the image of a girl that I used to know
E        A                  C       D
Don't be alarmed if it seems hard for me to explain
E         A             C         D
But every detail of your face makes me recall her name



pre-chorus:

Bm       F#m7            C#m            B (major)
Treading water, I keep         treading water



chorus:

            F#m                         B
Maybe it's another chance to mug myself again
            F#m
Maybe it's another chance
                          B
I'm sure I'll fuck things up in the same way
            F#m                         B
Maybe it's another chance to mug myself again



verse:

E A C D

E          A                C D
Can you forgive the things I do that I can't amend
E       A              C      D
Nor the way I yearn for her, I hope you can pretend
E              A              C          D
Girl, you're a fire and you'll find that I want to get burned
E         A                 C      D
No matter what you can teach me I'm sure I'll never learn



pre-chorus:

Bm       F#m7           C#m              B (major)
Treading water, I keep          treading water



chorus:

            F#m                         B
Maybe it's another chance to mug myself again
            F#m
Maybe it's another chance
                          B
I'm sure I'll fuck things up in the same way
            F#m                         B
Maybe it's another chance to mug myself again



bridge:

C#m G#m C#m B

C#m                 G#m
If my concentration seems spread too thin
C#m                   B
And when you speak my eyes glaze over
G# (major)
I'm sorry girl, it's not you, it's her



chorus:

            F#m                         B
And you're another chance to mug myself again.
              F#m
Baby you're another chance
                          B
I'm sure I'll fuck things up in the same way
            F#m                 B
Maybe it's another chance
            F#m                         B
Maybe it's another chance to mug myself again
             F#m
Baby you're another chance
                          B
I'm sure I'll fuck things up in the same way
            F#m                         B
Maybe it's another chance to mug myself again   



outro:

C D A (different inversions) B

i just went over this pretty fast, and most of it sounds really good. the A chord throughout seems a little off though, hence the 4 star rather than 5. overall nice work on figuring out by ear sven! i will post update if i find something that sounds better than the A.

hey there, i kept trying, and i think instead of the A in the prechorus, its an F#m7, or A/F#.
Is there a possibility that i change the tab?
