First Part:
Em
   Never feared for anything,
Em
   Never shamed but never free
    G                   D
A light that healed a broken heart
     Bm11         C
With all that it could

Em
   Live the life so endlessly
Em9                            Em
    Saw beyond what others see
    G                  D
I tried to heal your broken heart
     Bm11        C
With all that I could

 C
Will you stay
 D
Will you stay away forever?

Chorus:
 Em                       G
How do I live without the ones I love?
 Am                                G          D
Time still turns the pages of the book, it's burned
  Em                  G
Place and time always on my mind
   Am                                C     D
I have so much to say but you're so far away

First Part:
Em
   Plans of what our futures hold
Em
   Foolish lies of growing old
    G                D
It seems we're so invincible
          Bm11       C
But the truth is so cold

Em
   A final song, our last request
Em9                              Em
    Another chapter laid to rest
 G               D
Now and then I try to find
    Bm11       C
A place in my mind
       C
Where you can stay
 D
You can stay awake forever

How do I live without the ones I love?
 Am                                 C         D
Time still turns the pages of the book, it's burned

Place and time always on my mind
   Am                                C     D
I have so much to say but you're so far away

Second Part:
  E
Sleep tight
     C
I'm not afraid
    Am                     Em
The ones that we love are here with me
 E
Lay away
    C
A place for me
           D
'Cause as soon as I'm done
            C
I'll be on my way
    D
To live eternally

How do I live without the ones I love?

Time still turns the pages of the book, it's burned
         Am
And the light you left remains
           C        D
But it so hard to stay
        Am                                C    D   Em
When I have so much to say and you're so far away

Might not want to label the tab as "Drop D" tuning when then entire tab is just standard.

I'm sorry. That should be standard tuning ;)

This is really annoying, and every version has done the same. I don't play guitar much and so I don't know chords. So when I want to quickly look at a TAB and every version is written as CHORDS, it's no good to me! Nothing wrong with writing it out this way, but I wish when the person submitted it, they had put it under the "CHORDS" category. I'm sure I'm not the only one.
