Would you walk for miles in the rain
Could you fight a battle with the pain
If life begins to fade will you remain?
Leaving and escaping aren't the same

Would you walk for miles in the rain
Could you fight a battle with the pain
If life begins to fade will you remain?
Leaving and escaping aren't the same

Would you walk for miles in the rain
Could you fight a battle with the pain
If life begins to fade will you remain?
Leaving and escaping aren't the same

Quality tab! One thing I might suggest is notating the pull-offs for the guitar solo, like so:
e|--5---7---9---5---7p5------5--7---9---5---7----------------------|
B|---------------------7--5--------------------7---5---------------|
