-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Stefan Premovic

       So you play G#|-0---| simultaneously, and ?h2? is heard between them.

[Verse 1]

Come up to meet you, tell you I'm sorry
You don't know how lovely you are
I had to find you, tell you I need you
Tell you I'll set you apart

[Verse 2]

Tell me your secrets and ask me your questions
Oh let's go back to the start
Running in circles, coming in tails
Heads on a science apart

[Chorus]

Nobody said it was easy
It's such a shame for us to part
Nobody said it was easy
No one ever said it would be this hard
Oh, take me back to the start.

[Verse 3]

I was just guessing at numbers and figures
Pulling your puzzles apart
Questions of science, science and progress
Do not speak as loud as my heart

[Verse 4]

Tell me you love me, come back and haunt me
Oh and I rush to the start
Running in circles, chasing our tails
Coming back as we are

[Chorus]

Nobody said it was easy
Oh it's such a shame for us to part
Nobody said it was easy
No one ever said it would be so hard
I'm going back to the start

[Outro]

Ooooohhhhhhh [4x]

Nice tab man ;)
Right now, I'm trying to write a tab of the electric guitar part of Hannah and your acoustic part tab helped me a lot! So if you want to take a look at it, just check out my profile in a few days :)

F |--------------------|C |----0---------------|G#|------0---0-0h2-2p0-|D#|-------0-------0----|A#|--------------------|D#|----5-------4-------|From listening to the song carefully i can't help but think that this is actually how that last part goes, the D# is actually played between the hammer on a and pull-off.

I think it should be like this at the other parts where there's a hammer on, the open string should be played right after it, not with it
