I bet you could never tell...

       you were always good for a rhyme
Am               G            C
    and from the first to the last time
    Dm         C
the signs said stop
           G
but we went on whole hearted
   Am              G
it ended bad but I love what we started

but we went on whole hearted
   Am              G
it ended bad but I love what we started

Verse 2 (same riff as the first one)
I took off my glasses while you were yelling at me once,
more than once
So's not to see you see me react
Should've put em, should've put em on again
So I could see you see me sincerely yelling back

Bridge:
I bet your fortress face
Belied your fort of lace

It's by the grace of me you never learned what I could see

Chorus

Awesome! on the first to the last time part I believe the chords are more like:
Am Bm C
and from the first to the last time
Dm Em
the signs said stop
Dm
but we went on whole hearted
Am G
it ended bad but I love what we started
Em
they said stop
Dm
but we went on whole hearted
Am G
it ended bad but I love what we started

This chords sound weird in normal positions so I would suggest keeping the bass notes on the 6th string and work your way up a-b-c-d-e on 12th fret. Also I play B7 just as B major.

Also you'll notice that there is a little variation in the piano part for the first A major section like this:
e|----------------------------|
b|-----2----------------------|
G|----------------------------|
D|-----2-----2-2------0-------|
A|-0-------1---2--------------|
E|----------------------------|

Just a little detail that the two notes are played at the same time. Great tab tho!

G F C B Am or Am7 Dm Em
e|-x---x---x---x---x----x---x---x--|
b|-x---x---x---x---x----x---x---x--|
G|-0---x---5---4---2----5---7---9--|
D|-0---x---5---4---2----5---7---9--|
A|-2---3---7---6---3----7---8---10-|
E|-3---1---8---7---5----5---10--12-|

These are the chords I use because they are closer to the piano voicings.
I use Am7 only right after the G,Ab,Am(7)walk up.
