Defeater - But Breathing                D standard tuning (DCGFAD)

This is my first tab so i hope it is 100% correct. It sure sounds it to me.

    G     D/F    Em    Cadd9    Am   When you listen to the song there's one higher
   |3|    |3|    |3|    |3|     |3|  note when he plays the "G" 
   |3|    |3|    |3|    |3|     |3|  and the "Em." To get that pull of on the 2nd
   |0|    |2|    |0|    |0|     |2|  fret C string of the G and go to 
   |0|    |0|    |2|    |2|     |2|  the 2nd fret F string. With the Em pull off 
   |2|    |0|    |2|    |3|     |0|  the 2nd fret G string and go to
   |3|    |2|    |0|    |0|     |0|  the 2nd fret F string. :) You can fit it in
                                     yourself. (all D/F are really Dsus4/F#.)


INTRO:
G D/F Em D/F
G D/F Em D/F (End on G)

G
Unwanted, but breathing
                        
In the next room, sleeping
D/F   Em
My mother, shes crying
                           
And my fathers been drinking
D/F    G
In our run-down apartment

Where the roof is still leaking
D/F  Em
Hes cursing and cussing

Its just the whiskey talking

D/F          Cadd9                 Em
And Ive got lots of memories like this one
   Cadd9                                 G
Of empty days and nights spent tired and lonesome
       Am
When I think back to all of it
     Cadd9
Its all too much

Oh its all too much when youre just a little kid

MID-BRIDGE:
G D/F Em D/F (End on G)

G
My little brother, just a newborn baby
D/F    Em
In the image of my mother, says hes a blessing
D/F  G  
But not to my father, oh how he hates him
 D/F    Em 
An undeserving mistake, He calls him a burden


D/F          Cadd9                 Em 
And Ive got lots of memories like this one
   Cadd9                            G
Of picking sides and picking fights between them
       Am     
When I think back to all of it
           Cadd9
Well, its all too much

Well, its all too much when youre just a little kid


G          Cadd9          G              Cadd9            G    
And when I wake up in the morning it all feels like a bad dream
         Cadd9           G                 Cadd9
One that follows you and haunts you endlessly
                          G
Yeah, haunts me endlessly oh


Well, broken and beaten from the abuse and the cheating
D/F Em
The addiction, and the lying and the promise of leaving
D/F       G
While my old man was a bastard, I admired and loved him
D/F     Em
And us two kids, we were born in to a family, not a fortune, no

OUTRO:
G D/F Em D/F
G D/F Em D/F (End on G)
