               B w/D      A w/C       B w/D     A w/C
it's true i've dabbled at times, with confident lines

with us both on the ground, with us fooling around

Awesome tab, but I think in the intro there is are two notes missing. I play it like this:

::INTRO:: (in song is played on piano)

E--------------------5-8-7-5---5--|
B----5---8-6-5-5---6---------6----|
G------6------6--7----------------|
D--7------------------------------|
A---------------------------------|
e---------------------------------| x 6

A Dm

Dm A
i know you will (oh ya you will)

A Dm
it's not me, who's the operator

Dm A
but you're going down (down, down)

A D Dm
you'll be, sorry when you're singing

Dm A
all alone

Dm G
don't take me up

C E A
i'll just fall down once again

Dm G
don't take me up
