The Writer by Ellie Goulding (ortopilot cover)

This tab is my interpretation of the work of ortopilot.  
His cover can be seen at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_EBwymgymXM

All credit goes to him.

capo on 2nd fret (or which ever suits your voice).

D (alt)   354035
Em (alt)  075007
Em11      054005
B/C       002013
Em7       022003

C      Em    D (alt)
Em (alt)   Em11  (open)   B/C  
D (alt)   G

                C           Em         D (alt)
You wait for a silence,  I wait for a word
                   C       Em         D (alt)
Lying next to your frame,  Girl unobserved
                  C              Em       D (alt)
You change your position, You're changing me
              B/C            D (alt)        G
Casting these shadows, Where they shouldn't be

           C               Em          D (alt)
We're interrupted,  By the heat of the sun
          C                Em       D (alt)
Trying to prevent,  What's already begun
              C            Em         D (alt)
You're just a body,  I can smell your skin
           B/C              D(alt)  G
And when I feel it,  You're wearing thin

         B/C    C              
But I've got a plan

          D (alt)    Em (alt)     C              G
Why don't you be the artist,  And make me out of clay?
          D (alt)    Em (alt)   C                G 
Why don't you be the writer,  Decide the words I say?
          Em7    B/C                  D (alt)         Em (alt)
Cause I'd rather pretend,  I'll still be there at the end
          G           B/C             D (alt) . . . . . . . 
Only it's too hard to ask,  Won't you try to help me?

B/C   Em7

            C2          Em         D (alt)
Sat on your sofa,  It's all broken springs
               C                 Em     D (alt)
This isn't the place for,  Those violin strings
            C             Em        D (alt)
I try out a smile,  And I aim it at you
              B/C             D(alt) G
You must have missed it,  You always do

         B/C   C              
But I've got a plan

          D (alt)    Em (alt)     C              G
Why don't you be the artist,  And make me out of clay?
          D (alt)    Em (alt)   C                G 
Why don't you be the writer,  Decide the words I say?
          Em7    B/C                  D (alt)         Em (alt)
Cause I'd rather pretend,  I'll still be there at the end
          G           B/C             D (alt) . . . . . . . 
Only it's too hard to ask,  Won't you try to help me?


C                   Em      D (alt)        Em (alt)
You wait,  I wait,  Casting shadows,  Interrupted
C                   Em      D (alt)        Em (alt)
You wait,  I wait,  Casting shadows,  Interrupted
C                   Em      D (alt)   
You wait,  I wait,  Casting shadows......
