This is the first 100% correct version in standardtuning.

Artist: Flyleaf
Song: Breathe Today
Album: Self-Titled
Tuning: Standard Eadgbe (yes, not drop D)

I think you'll find this to be the most accurate tab of this song so far,
all that is missing is the bridge wich is quite hard
So here we go......


                                    3x
e-------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
b-------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
g------4--4---------4--4---------4--4-------------------------------------------|
d------4--4---------4--4---------4--4-------------------------------------------|
a------2--2---------2--2---------2--2-------------------------------------------|
E---------------------------------------------------3-5-3----2-3-2--------------|


Then something that go's like this
                                    2x
e-------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
b-------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
g-------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
d--------5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5--4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4---------------------------------------|
a--------5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5--4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4---------------------------------------|
E--------3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3--2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2---------------------------------------|

Then comes something like this; a lot of people think B5 is still played here
but it's is not.
                                    2x
e-------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
b-------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
g-------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
d-------2-2------2-2---5-5--5-5------4-4------4-4--4-4--4-4---------------------|
a-------2-2------2-2---5-5--5-5------4-4------4-4--4-4--4-4---------------------|
E-------0-0------0-0---3-3--3-3------2-2------2-2--2-2--2-2---------------------|
(the second time the ending is a bit different with the strumming, just listen
to the song)

then....
                                    2x
e-------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
b-------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
g-------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
d-------2--2--2--2--5--5--5--5--4--4--4--4--4--4--4--4--------------------------|

E-------0--0--0--0--3--3--3--3--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--------------------------|


then the chorus whoopeeeee
                                    2x
e-------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
b-------------------------------------------------------------------------------|

a------2-2-2-2--5-5-5-5---7-7-7-7-------5----5----------------------------------|
E---------------3-3-3-3---5-5-5-5-------3----2----------------------------------|

d------4--4---------4--4---------4--4-------------------------------------------|
a------2--2---------2--2---------2--2-------------------------------------------|

b-------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
g-------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
d--5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5--4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4--2--2--2--2--5--5--5--5--4-4-4-4--4--4--4-4-|

Then the chorus again
                                    2x
(the second the time the last chord isn't played)
e-------------------------------------------------------------------------------|

(They end with a slide to E)

That's it, i hope this was of use to you.
Hopefully someone will post the correct version of the bridge in a comment.

God Bless,

great tab. you really seem to know what youre doing.
i think i figured out the bridge but its just the rhythm. its basically the chorus just palm muted with a change in rhythm the second time through.

so play the chorus palm muted the first time. like this.
e--------------------------------------|
b--------------------------------------|
g--4-4-4-4-----------------------------|
d--4-4-4-4--5-5-5-5--7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7--|
a--2-2-2-2--5-5-5-5--7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7--|
E-----------3-3-3-3--5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5--|
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

then the second time the end of it it just sped up and stop palm mute. like this.
e----------------------------------------|
b----------------------------------------|
g--4-4-4-4-------------------------------|
d--4-4-4-4--5-5-5-5--7777777777777777--|
a--2-2-2-2--5-5-5-5--7777777777777777--|
E-----------3-3-3-3--5555555555555555--|
* * * * * * * * (^ here gradually release palm mute)
