Capo 4

Cadd9              G
I was on your porch, 
Cadd9              G
The smoke sank into my skin,
Cadd9              G            D
So I came inside to be with you,
Cadd9          G
We talked all night, 
Cadd9          G
About everything you could imagine,
Cadd9           G               D
'Cause come the morning, I'll be gone,
Am                         D
And as our eyes start to close, 
Am                         D
I turn to you and I let you know, 
               Cadd9 G Cadd9 G Cadd9 G D
That I love you. 


Cadd9          G
Well, my dad was sick,
Cadd9          G
My mom she cared for him,
Cadd9          G              D
Her loving nursed him back to life,
Cadd9      G  Cadd9                           G
And me, I ran, I couldn't even look at him, 
Cadd9          G             D
For fear I'd have to say goodbye, 
Am                D
And as I start to leave, 
Am                                       D
He grabs me by the shoulder and he tells me, 
                                G       
"Whats left to lose? 
                        Em
You've done enough, 
Am                                       D
And if you fail then you fail but not to us, 
                                                G
'Cause these last three years, 
                                                Em
I know they have been hard, 
                         Am                                         D
But now it's time to get out of the desert and into the sun,
                        Cadd9
Even if its alone." 


Cadd9          G
So now here I sit, 
Cadd9                 G
In a hotel off of Sunset 
Cadd9          G              D
My thoughts bounce off Sam's guitar,
Cadd9                           G 
And thats the way its been, 
Cadd9                           G
Ever since we were kids, but now, 
Cadd9          G              D
Now, we've got something to prove,
Am                                              D
And I, I can see their eyes, 
                Am                                                      D
Then tell me something, can they see mine? 
                                        G
'Cause whats left to lose? 
          Em
I've done enough, 
             Am                               D
And if I fail then I fail but I gave it a shot,
                                            G
'Cause these last three years
                                          Em
I know they have been hard, 
                         Am                                         D
But now it's time to get out of the desert and into the sun, 
              Cadd9 G Cadd9 G Cadd9 G D
Even if it's alone,
(Even if it's alone) 
Even if it's alone. 

Cadd9                                    G
I was on your porch last night,
Cadd9              G     D     Em with a few extra notes (see below)
The smoke, it sank into my skin.


Em with a few extra notes:
e---3---|
B---3---|
G---0---|
D---2---|
A---2---|
E---x---|

Note: The tab on here is pretty much correct, If you want to play the song exactly 
the way The Format plays it, I recommend using that. I, personally, like to change 
the song from the original. I play with my own strum pattern and with Capo 1 as it 
fits my range. Feel free to do with it what you like.
