Title: Happy ever After

E tuning & capo on 2nd fret.
This was quick and easy to tab. People have been asking for this for a while, so here it
from my perspective. Keep in mind to try to accent the moving bass notes to bring out
changing chords, cause it can be easy to miss if you strum top-heavy. Enjoy and please 
You can hear this song at their UNOFFICIAL website at http://www.myspace.com/heiswe

Thanks to Fileden.com for the mp3 file.

Lyrics thanks to Alexandra_feaa at Lyricsreg.com

(verse)
Let me [1]riddle you a ditty, it's just an [2]itty bitty, little [3]thing on my mind.[4]
About a [1]boy and a girl, trying to [2]take on the world one [3]kiss at a time.[4]
Now the [1]funny thing about, ain't a story with[2]out it, but the [3]story is mine[4].
And I [1]wish you could say[2], that it [3]ended just fine.[4]

[2]We all [1]want to know[3], how it ends.

(chorus)
[1]Oh, happily [3]ever after[4], wouldn't you know[2], wouldn't you know.
[1]Oh, skip to the [3]ending,[4] who'd like to know, I'd like[2] to know.
[1]Author of the [3]moment,[4] can you tell[2] me, [1]do I[3] end up, [4]do I [2]end up happy?

[1] [3] [3]

Inhale, breathe steady... (repeat verse)

[2]We all [1]want to know[3], how it ends.

Oh, happily ever after... (repeat chorus)

[5] [6] [3]

We [5]all have a [6]story to[3] tell.
[5]Whether we [6]whisper or[3] yell.
We [5]all have a [6]story, of [3]adolescence and all it's glory.
We [5]all have a [6]story to [3]tell.

Oh, happily ever after... (repeat chorus)

[5] [6] [3]

We [5]all have a [6]story to [3]tell. 4x & fade

Heres the higher, more melodic part during the ending and when she says "we all have a
to tell".

e|------14----------14----------14----------------|
B|---14----14----14----14----14----14----14----14-|
G|11----------11----------11----------10----11----|
D|------------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------|

This is the high, more melodic part during the chorus and after is the bit during the
between chorus and verse.

e|-----9--------9--------9-------------|
B|---9---9----9---9----9---9----9----9-|
G|11-------11-------11-------10---11---|
D|-------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------|

e|-------------------------9-------------|
B|---9---------9---------9--------9------|
G|11---11---11---11---11-------11---11---|
D|---------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------|

I'm sooo confused! I'm not sure these chords make sense. Perhaps I'm reading them wrong? But its physically impossible to have one finger on the 2nd fret and another on the 13th. Is there some sliding involved?
