Hi there!  I'm loving this song!!

*Note the Dm shape. I think that voicing sounds 
better than the regular [xx0231].  But the other
Dm's that don't have 'Dm [x5323x]' it's a regular
shape [xx0231].  Let me know what you think :)
                                                  
*If you cave a hard time with reaching the 5 of [x5323x]Dm,
then just play [xx323x], that's what I have to do :/

****************************************************************

IF YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT TRANSPOSING IS- LOOK IT UP. It will help
you understand why these chords are different than what Ed plays
but will still play right along with Ed without having to change
the tuning of your guitar or play those nasty barre chords ;)

(palm muted)

          Am
Ooh I'm a mess right now
       G
Inside out
                Dm [x5323x] or [xx323x]
Searching for a sweet surrender
    F               C
But this is not the end


        Am
I can't work it out
  G
How?
                  Dm [x5323x]
Going through the motions
F               G
Going through us


    F                                C
And oh I've known it for the longest time
              G            F
And all of my hopes all my words 
                            C
Are all over written on the signs
                 G               F
But you're on my road walking me home
       -stop
Home, home



Am                         G
  See the flames inside my eyes
            F                        C   G     Am
It burns so bright I wanna feel your love, ohoh
                      G
Easy baby maybe I'm a liar
          F                     C   G
But for tonight I wanna fall in love
             Dm*         F*       tap tap
And put your faith in my-y stomach



         Am
I messed up this time
          G
Late last night
            Dm [x5323x]
Drinking to suppress devotion
     F            C
With fingers intertwined


        Am
I can't shake this feeling 
   G
No-ow
                        Dm [x5323x]
We're going through the motions
F            G         
Hopin' you'd stop



    F                               
And oh I've only caused you pain
  C                  G           
I know but all of my words
              F 
Will always below
                        C         
Although all the lie we spoke
                  G               F
When you're on my road walking me home
             -stop
Home, home, home



Am                         G
  See the flames inside my eyes
            F                        C   G     Am
It burns so bright I wanna feel your love, ohoh
                      G
Easy baby maybe I'm a liar
          F                     C   G
But for tonight I wanna fall in love
             Dm          F*       tap tap tap
And put your faith in my-y stomach



    Am  C   G         F   C  G Am
And for how long I lo-ove my lover
Am  C   G         F   C  G Am
For how long I lo-ove my lover
         Am  C   G               F   C  G Am        
And now, for how long, long I lo-ove my lover
          Am  C   G               F   C  G Am
Now, now, for how long, long I lo-ove my lover



         Am  C   G               F   C  G Am
Now now, for how long, long I lo-ove my lover
Am  C   G         F      G Am
For how long I lo-ove my lover
         Am  C   G               F   C  G Am         
And now, for how long, long I lo-ove my lover
          Am  C   G               F   C  G Am
Now, now, for how long, long I lo-ove my lover




         Am  C   G               F   C  G Am
Now now, for how long, long I lo-ove my lover
         Am  C   G               F   C  G Am
Now now, for how long, long I lo-ove my lover


(single muted strums)
Am  C   G          F      G Am
For how long, I lo-ove my lover
         Am  C   G               F   G  Am
Now now, for how long, long I lo-ove my lover





Have fun!
Christy
