Notes: 
       This song is in flat tuning, as usual for the Goo Goo Dolls, but that's what makes them so great! 
       This is another excellent song off of the new album; I hope you enjoy playing it.  Please don't steal this tab,

Verse: (Play Intro)
Ecstasy is all you need
Living in the big machine, now
Oh you're so vain
Now your world is way too fast
Nothing's real and nothing lasts
And I'm aware
I'm in love and you don't care

Pre-Chorus:
E5/F#             E5/Db
Turn your anger into  lust
E5/F#                E5/Db            Ab minor                                         
I'm still here but you don't trust at all

And I'll be waiting
E5/F#          E5/Db
Love and sex and loneliness
E5/F#                 E5/Db
Take what's yours and leave the rest
  F#5   E5
So I'll survive
G#5           F#5   Eb5
God it's good to be alive

Chorus:
Bb5          F#5
I'm torn in pieces
G#5           F#5
I'm blind and waiting for...
B5          F#5
My heart is reeling
G#5           F#5          (riff beneath)
I'm blind and waiting for you

if you tune the 1st string up a step you can play the bottom two strings open, sounds better, especially for the chorus
