                             Boyce Avenue ? The Scientist
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Stefan Premovic

Tuning: D#A#D#G#CF

I tabbed Alejandro?s guitar, it?s more than enough in my opinion.
Enjoy, rate and comment. :)

*NOTE: ?0h2? and other * marked hammer-on's have a 16th note length. Other notes are 8th.
       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]
