As I play it on one guitar. Feel free to add what you think the second guitar
part is into the comments, and I'll update the tab! Also, if you have any ideas
on guitar parts for the bit where I've written "Bass Interlude", or what the
piano is then add it to the comments and I'll update the tab, I wasn't to sure!
I love this song so I've done my best and written the lyrics in time with the
music as best I could to try and make it easier! Hope you like!

Bass Interlude??

So far so good (It takes a miracle)
You're only half as good as you said (For someone to hear me in this well)
You're halfway decent. x2

Repeat the chorus twice. The first time I think it's got a half-time feel to it
so it's like half the tempo if you get me, something like that, but the second
time it's back to normal speed, still all the same chords!
