Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
This song is played half step higher from standard tuning. I believe they tune 
their guitars up, but I
just use a capo on the firs fret and works just the same. So the tuning I end up 
using is Drop D with
capo on 1st fret, so all of these chords are up a half step...

Chords used (capo = open string) for intro:
    
  E6 (or C/E)     Dm    F  There is also another chord sometimes used in the song, its some form
e-----------|----|---| of D without the rd (so idk if it is a Dm or Dmaj), so I just call it a D, 
b-----------|----|---| but I play just the bass notes open (DAD)
g-----------|----|---| 
d-7---------|-2--|-3-|
a-8---------|-2--|-3-|
d-7---------|-2--|-3-|

All, or most, chords can be played regularly, except that you have to accommodate 
for the dropped d. Also, if you want to you can play most of the other strings 
open.

*Verse/Intro* 

              E6   Dm    F
And you knew exactly when
E6                    Dm           F Dm
 you gave your heart and all of it
E6            Dm         F  
Without a thought of what you meant
E6                  Dm                F  Dm
you knew you couldn't live without this

     Dm    F      E6
So make your excuses now
      Dm         F         E6       F
that time has stolen all that you've earned
Dm     F     E6 
Make your excuses now
      Dm        F         E6 
that time has stolen her
Dm         F        Dm
time has stolen her

*Verse*

(There is another guitar playing the melody, but I usually play it on the d 
string. it is mostly just switching between the noes E and D)

G (open) Dm G Dm (quickly switch between open fret and 2nd fret)
Dm                                            F                       Dm
Tell me that I'm a fool That I've exaggerated the situation 
Dm                                                           F                        Dm
'Cause I've never been scared like this Of losing more than I have to give

*Pre-Chorus*

For this part I will use a small tab to show you how I play it. Im sure that this 
is meant for two guitars, but I will just show you how I play it. You can let all 
strings ring if you want to.
     (x2 as in play that part twice before moving on)
e-------------------x2--------------------x2
b-------------------x2--------------------x2
g-------------------x2--------------------x2
d-2-2-2-0-0-0-0-0--x2--1-1-1-5-5-5-5-5----x2
a-2-2-2-------------x2---1-1-1-3-3-3-3-3--x2
d-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2--x2---1-1-1-------------x2  play twice whole thing twice

It's so      unfair                      I  believed I could handle this
I swore  I  could    fix             everything 

F
But I told myself lies all of these years

(quickly) G (open) Dm G Dm STOP
                                           I told myself lies
(same again) G Dm G Dm STOP
                                        All of these years

DEmDEm(keep playing Dm)
          The fear that moves in and stays here
DEmDEm
          The words that replay in your ears
DEmDEm
          The grip that you held has weakened
DEmDEm
          Was the life that was yours forsaken
    F                  
But I can't take my eyes off of you


*Chorus*

 STOP                        F
And we were still so cool
                                    Dm
Our bodies smooth and young (bodies smooth and young)
                                   F
The dreams of getting older

Were never supposed to come (were never supposed to come)
                                 F
The curse of perfect days
                                           Dm
You forget just what you've made (forget just what you've made)
                                        F
And you find yourself just praying

For something more than this life
                                        Em (slide up to) G
Something more than this   l   i   f   e

*Verse*

Dm                                         G
We wait for the doctors, to prescribe their medicines
Dm                                         G
And hold their bad news, as if later it will make more sense
Dm                         
But I've never been scared like this (It's so unfair) 
          G
Just waiting for my strength to give (I thought I could handle this)
Dm                              E6
But this is the rock, I broke myself against (I swore I could fix anything)

          F                             Dm
We believed we'd have our way (And we did, and we did)
      F                             F            Fmaj11
The memories we have made (Everyday was the best day of my life)
          F                            Dm
I could never repay what I owe (I'll replace, I'll reload)
F                   Dm                     F
Even though I read the ending before the start
Fmaj11
I would have never changed a single part

*This part is palm muted and played with only the bass notes*

F  Dm  Dm  F

F                  Dm                Dm             
Tell me I'm a fool, tell me I'm just scared
                      F
Say I'm such a drama queen, it's not even fair
F                        Dm                                  Dm
Let me see your eyes, the love that's right behind
                    F
And I'll promise you
                           F  Dm
That it will never die
                   Dm  F STOP
It will never die


*Chorus*

(first half is slowed down significantly)

                               F
And we were still so cool
                                    Dm
Our bodies smooth and young (bodies smooth and young)
                                   F
The dreams of getting older
                                      
Were never supposed to come (were never supposed to come)

(pick up pace again here)

Stop                         F
The curse of perfect days
                                           Dm
You forget just what you've made (forget just what you've made)
                                        F
And you find yourself just praying

For something more than this life
                                        Dm (slide up to) F STOP
Something more than this   l   i   f   e
