As with my other tabs, this is meant to be more linear to convey a rough sense of timing. One dash equals
one eighth note. To make this work, frets above 9 are represented by letters, where A=10th fret, B=11th fret,
etc. Otherwise double-digit fret references would extend the width of the bars, breaking the appearance for
timing.

[INTRO-VERSE]
    D                D             D                        D              G
  I hear you talking everywhere    Words on the loudspeaker hangin' in the air
  C        D          D
      Everywhere
      D                    D                    D             
  I remember the words you told me, too    This town's full of losers
  D                         G      C                         D         D
  Tryin' to get a piece of you       You really think that's true?

[INTRO-CHORUS]
  A                A            G            D
  How long will it take til you open up your eyes?

  You watched your star shatter and fade away     Too many wasted days
            D                 D
  With your eyes wide open, a hand on the wheel
      D                      D                    G       C             D        D
