Intro (also played in the beginning of verses)

                  Bm  A   G
E-------------x---7---5---3-------------------------|
B-------------x---7---5---3-------------------------|
G-------------x---7---6---4-------------------------|
D-------------x---9---7---5-------------------------|
A------5-7----x---9---7---5-------------------------|
E--5-7-----7—-x---7---5---3-------------------------|


Verse 1
Bm               A                    G
People say that together we were both sides of the same coin
Bm                        A                      G
That we would shine like Venus in a clear night sky
                Em             F#m         G
We thought our love could overcome the circumstances
         Em                F#m          A
But my ambition wouldn't allow for compromise

I could see in the distance all the dreams that were clear to me
Every choice that I had to make left you on your own
Somehow the road we started down had split asunder
Too late to realise how far apart we'd grown


Chorus
D             D/Db                        Bm   A
How I wish I, wish I'd done a little bit more
        G                               G/F#
Now  Shoulda woulda coulda, means I'm out of time
       Em                           A
Coz Shoulda woulda coulda, can't change your mind
        D               D/Db                C    Bm
And I wonder, wonder, wonder what I'm gonna do
 G                                A              D
Shoulda woulda coulda are the last words of a fool


Verse 2
People ask how it feels to live the kind of life others dream about
I tell them everybody gotta face their highs and their lows
And in my life there's a love I put aside,
cause I was busy loving something else
So for every little thing you hold on to
you've got to let something else go

[Chorus]


G                                  F#m
Fool if I would now forsake the opportunities are fate
  Em                   F#m
I know I'm right where I belong
       G                A
But sometimes when I'm not so strong I..


[Chorus]

i think the F#m's in the second half of the verse should be Bm's

but other than that, great tab :D

I respectfully disagree with squizzlepants (great name, BTW). I think the F#m's are right.

However, a few other things that I think do need to be corrected:
1. The C-Bm change in the chorus over "do-oo" should be C-B (major). I hear a D in that B chord.

2. I also think the A in the chorus should be a Bm/A. The a bass note is correct, but I think they stay on the Bm chord for another beat.

3. Not as sure about this one, but I think the first two chords in the bridge should be C and Bm, not G and F#m.

Just my opinion; yours may vary. Overall, excellent tab.
