A great and simple song by the amazing bear's den. If I've made mistakes feel free to correct me! :)
I believe that they play this on a 12-string, so it has a slightly different texture on a 6-string,
but it is still a lovely song.

It's basically one fairly simple riff, repeated, interspersed with places that are almost entirely
vocal (you've been crying out for forever), but where I've included the base notes.

I tab the 3 on the low E string with my left hand thumb, because I find that easier.
Everything here is relative to the capo.

Standard tuning, Capo 6

Lyrics:

Spoiled, selfish little child
Went out to play out in the wild
I found you shaking like a leaf
Underneath your family tree

You could never live out in the open
Regretting every word you've spoken
When you break it's too late for you to fall apart
And the blame that you claim is all your own fault

And you've been crying out for forever
But forever's come and gone
You keep begging for forgiveness
But you don't think you've done wrong
You've been crying out for forever
Forever's come and gone
My bleeding hands, your shaking head

As your love starts to surround you
All of their words are trying to drown you
And you break, it's too late for you to fall apart
And the blame that you claim is all your own fault

But you've been crying out for forever
But forever's come and gone
You keep begging for forgiveness
But you don't think you've done wrong
You've been crying out for forever
Forever's come and gone
My bleeding hands, your shaking head

So tell me another beautiful lie
Tell me everything I want to hear
Won't you lay here by my side?
I want to fuck away all my fear

Tell me another beautiful lie
Tell me everything I want to hear
Won't you lay here by my side?
I want to fuck away all my fear

Tell me another beautiful lie
Tell me everything I want to hear
Won't you lay here by my side?
I want to fuck away all my fear

Tell me another beautiful lie
Tell me everything I want to hear
Won't you lay here by my side?
I want to fuck away all my fear

And I have seen all that you've seen
And I have been where you've been
No, our hands will never be clean
At least we can hold each other
