Noticed there was a 5 star tab that wasn't right, so hopefully people will see this one. 
It should be correct.  Enjoy.


Tuning: EADGBe


Guitar 1

Intro/Verse


     G/A               Dsus2               Bm              D

e|----5------------------0------------------2--------------2-----------------------|
B|----3------------------3------------------3--------------3-----------------------|
G|----0------------------2------------------4--------------2-----------------------|
D|----0------------------0------------------4--------------------------------------|
A|----x-------------------------------------2--------------------------------------|
E|----3----------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Chorus ("If that's the way it is...")

note: The last progression before the chorus (in the verse) is also played   this way

   G/A      Dsus2       Bm         D
e|--5--------0-----------2---------5-----7--|
B|--3--------3-----------3---------7--------|
G|--0--------2-----------4---------7--------|
D|--0--------0-----------4---------7--------|
A|--x--------------------2---------5--------|
E|--3---------------------------------------|


Guitar 2


Verse 2 ("I still feel you...")

This can be played elsewhere (i.e. D chord on 2nd/3rd fret, but I prefer to play it here).

e|----------------------------------------------------------|

D|-----5---7-------5----7-----------------------------------|  x16
A|----------------------------------------------------------|
E|----------------------------------------------------------|

Chorus ("If that's the way it is...")

You can also hammer on the 7 during the 4/5 7 sequence for better flow

D|---5h7----------7---4/5--7-------7--5h7---5--7-----5h7---5--7----------| x2

Excellent tab. One correction, once it gets to that chorus it goes:
e|-----------------------|
b|-(0)-(0)-(0)---10--12--|
g|--7---9---11---7---9---|
d|--5---7---9------------|
a|-----------------------|
E|-----------------------|
