[Intro] 
(Acoustic)
Dm               A#                 G5
Seize the day or die regretting the time you lost, it's empty and cold
                                              Dm  G5                  C
without you here, too many people to ache over      I see my vision burn I 
feel my...
(This is where the Distorted electric guitar played by Synyster comes in)

                   Fmaj7     C                 Dm
memories fade with time  but I'm too young to worry
(At the moment that M. Shadows get to the "ry" in "worry", Zacky comes in on electric with this.)

 G5                        C                               Fmaj7
    The streets we travel on, will undergo our same lost past

(During the word "on", Synyster comes in with this on electric.)

[Verse 1]
 Dm                   G5                     Fmaj7              C
I found you here, now please just stay for a while, I can move on with you 
        Dm            G5               Fmaj7        C
around, I hand you my mortal life, but will it be forever?
Dm       G5             Fmaj7                    C                Dm
  I'd do anything for a smile, holding you 'til our time is done, we both 
         G5                 Fmaj7                  C
know the day will come, but I don't want to leave you.

(Right before the part of the verse "I'd do anything for a smile" Synyster comes in with this.)

(Now we enter the 1st Pre-chorus of the song.)
 G5                  C                               Fmaj7     C
   I see my vision burn I feel my memories fade with time, but I'm too young 
     Dm
to worry, a melody, a memory, or just one picture

(At the beginning of the Pre-chorus, Synyster comes in with this.)

B|--------------------------|
G|-----5---------------3----|
D|-5---5---3---2---0---3----|
A|-5---3---3---2---0---1----|
D|-5-------3---2---0--------|

(Also, at the the "ry" in "worry" Zacky comes in with this.)

E|-13s--------------------|\
B|------17s--------15-----| \
G|-----------14s----------|  \
D|------------------------|  / Hold this until the chorus
A|------------------------| /

(Repeat the intro and just cut off from "I feel my vision burn" Just add Synyster 
and Zacky's parts, which are identical.)

[Verse 2]
Dm              G5             Fmaj7              C                Dm
Newborn life, replacing all of us, changing this fable we live in, no longer 
   G5           Fmaj7        C Dm         G5               Fmaj5            
needed here, so where do we go?  Will you take a journey tonight? Follow me 
  C                      Dm        G5                   Fmaj7     C
past the walls of death? But girl, what if, there is no eternal life?

(During the second half of the second verse, Synyster repeats this again.)

E|-------1-------------3--------------------------------------1-------------3------------------------|
B|---------3---3-3---3---3---3-3-----6---------8--6--5----------3---3-3---3---3---3-3------6---------|

D|---0---------------------------3-------3----------------0----------------------------3--------3----|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|

(Now we are into the 2nd Pre-chorus, everything is the same but one change to the lead guitar part.)

E|-------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------|
G|----5--------5------------3----|
D|-5--5----3-7---3--2--0----3----|
A|-5--3--3-------3--2--0----1----|
D|-5-------------3--2--0---------|

(And yet again at the "ry" in "worry" Zacky plays this.)

E|-13s--------------------|\
B|------17s--------15-----| \
G|-----------14s----------|  \
D|------------------------|  / Hold this until the chorus
A|------------------------| /

(Now we hit the 2nd Chorus, it goes like this.)

(Now we enter the Bridge section of the song, from here, I am going to focus on 
Synyster's parts, the others pretty much are repetitive and can easily be picked 
up by listening to the song.)
