THIS IS ELLIE GOULDING'S "HALCYON". I GOT THE TABS VIA LISTENING TO THE ALBUM 
VERSION. METHINKS IT'S CORRECT BUT FEEL FREE TO POINT OUT MISTAKES IF YOU THINK SOMETHING'S WRONG.

THE CHORUS IS QUITE TRICKY SO LOOK CLOSE (THEY'RE SWITCHING TO OFFBEAT QUITE A FEW TIMES).

HAVE FUN.

REPEAT PATTERN OF CHORUS DURING "it's gonna be better"

It's gonna be, it's gonna be better
It's gonna be better, it's gonna be better
It's gonna be better
It's gonna be better
It's gonna be better
It's gonna be
It's gonna be better
It's gonna be better


THEN SWITCH TO INTRO & RESUME WITH VERSE II / CHORUS II / FADE WHILE PLAYING INTRO.

We'll take a long walk, down the alleys of these houses
And we'll talk, see what conversation rouses when we're alone, when we're alone, it could be home

When it's just us
You show me what it feels like to be lonely
You show me what it feels like to be lost
I take your hand for you to let it go
Let it go, let it go, let it go

It's gonna be, it's gonna be better
It's gonna be better, it's gonna be better
It's gonna be better
It's gonna be better
It's gonna be better
It's gonna be
It's gonna be better
It's gonna be better

Is there another version of this that's just got the chords name above the words instead of something that beginners can't understand? If there is can somebody PLEASE let me know?
