Wouldn’t be a lie if I said I was missing you tonight

Wouldn’t be a lie if I said I was missing you, missing you, missing you

Never thought that I would see these tears
And these lonely time I’m feeling without 
And I don’t have you through it all
No I don’t have you though it all

Not entirely sure but should the hammer-on's be --0h1-- rather than --0h2--

Like I said I'm not entirely sure.

Yup you're right, was just a typo on my part. I'll fix that.

Im not convinced by the bit where he sings "And the world keeps on winning".
Other that that I think its pretty much spot on.
Thanks for the tab.
