About this tab version
The main riffs were verified by Chris Farren and both versions are 100% accurate according to the artist. Was this info helpful? Yes No
There are two versions to the main riff. The first version is what's played on the album recording,
the second is the way Chris plays it acoustically and feels more like finger picking. This can be seen in
Chris' Fistful of Vinyl session:

[Main Riff x6]

VERSE

[Main Riff]
I was so afraid back then

That I would lose my only

[Prechorus Riff]
Friend when you surrendered to

The devil that was chasing you around

[Main Riff x2]

[Main Riff]
We stopped talking for some time

I was destroyed you seemed

Fine out late with your brand new life

I held my breath and prayed for mine to end


CHORUS
G
       D         Cmaj7    G
It was hard to believe
   D               Cmaj7     
Anyone could ever leave me
    G                   D  
But tail lights quickly retreating
        Em            C             Am
Are the only lights I seem to see
        Cmaj7       [Main Riff x2]
Is your heart still beating?


VERSE

[Main Riff]
I guess I was just like you

Cause I gave up

[Prechorus Riff]
To let the days just turn to months

Avoid everything and everyone around

[Main Riff]
Ignore the phone calls from my mom

Pretend I’m busy writing
Am
Songs as I just blaze away

Cmaj7
Single player video games


CHORUS
G
       D         Cmaj7    G
It was hard to believe
   D               Cmaj7     
Anyone could ever leave me
    G                   D  
But tail lights quickly retreating
        Em            C            Am
Are the only lights I seem to see
        Cmaj7       D
Is your heart still beating?


[Instrumental Break]

|  G6  |  Cmaj7  |


BRIDGE
      G6
There must be something better
                               Cmaj7
Someplace that I’ve never ever seen
     G6
Must be some sort of Heaven
                                  Cmaj7
With everything that I could ever dream of

[Instrumental Break II]

|  Am  |  Cmaj7  |  D69  |
|  Am  |  Cmaj7  |  D69  |

CHORUS
G
           D         Cmaj7    G
Cause it’s hard to believe
   D               Cmaj7
Anyone could ever leave me
    G                   D
Now tail lights quickly retreating
        Em            Cmaj7        Am
Are the only lights I seem to see
        Cmaj7       D
Is your heart still beating...

[Main Riff]
For me?
