[Chorus]

                 G       D               
I  won't  give  up  on  us
                Bm          A
Even  if  the  skies  get  rough
                  G         D
I'm  giving  you  all  my  love
                      A - Asus - A
I'm  still  looking  up

(Do 2nd Verse and 2nd Chorus with same Tabs and Chords as above)

                     A
God  knows  we're  worth  it 
                     G
No,  I  won't  give  up


[Bridge]

          Em
I  don't  wanna  be  someone  who  walks  away  so  easily
                                                       A/D
I'm  here  to  stay  and  make  the  difference  that  I  can  make
   Em
Our  differences  they  do  a  lot  to  teach  us  how  to  use
                                                  A/D
The  tools  and  gifts  we  got  yeah,  we  got  a  lot  at  stake
              C
And  in  the  end,  you're  still  my  friend  at  least  we  did  intend
                                                         C#
For  us  to  work  we  didn't  break,  we  didn't  burn
                                                                   C
We  had  to  learn  how  to  bend  without  the  world  caving  in
                                   C#                    (break)
I  had  to  learn  what  I've  got,  and  what  I'm  not
           D
And who I am


(Repeat 1st Chorus)


Extra Verse Lyrics: (Use Verse Tabs)

So easy is our lives
What's mine is yours and yours mine
Hardly do we ever fight
We'd rather be kind

Extra Chorus Lyrics: (Use Chorus Chords)

I won't give up on us
Even if the skies get dark
I'm healing this broken heart
And I know I'm worth it

I won't give up on us (no I'm not giving up)
God knows I'm tough, I am loved (I am tough, I am loved)
We've got a lot to learn (we're alive, we are loved)  
God knows we're worth it (God knows we're worth it)

No, I won't give up on us (no I'm not giving up)
God knows I'm tough enough (I am tough, I am loved)
We've got a lot to learn (we're alive, we are loved)  
And we're, and we're worth it (and we're worth it)

No, I won't give up


[Outro]  

G  D  F# (2x)
G  D

JK6065, you may want to check the tuning on your guitar! its capo 2 like the tab says.

Any idea on higher string stuff in the 2nd verse?

The Amaj chord in the first part of the chorus is an A add9

E|--X--
B|--2--
G|--4--
D|--2--
A|--0--
E|--X--

For pretty much the whole song he Avoids The High E String except for the Dmaj chord. I believe when he plays the bminor chord he leaves the high e string open towards some of more energetic parts toward the end making it a bminor11

E|--0--
B|--3--
G|--4--
D|--4--
A|--2--
E|--X--

For the majority of the song i see him playing the G (maj7) like this
E|--X--
B|-(0)--
G|--0--
D|--4--
A|--5--
E|--5--

or this

E|--X--
B|--3--
G|--0--
D|--4--
A|--5--
E|--5--

For the A major in the verse i believe he's playing

E|-----------------------
B|--3--------3--------2--
G|--2-----3--2-----3--2--
D|-----3--------3-----2--
A|--0--------0--------0--
E|-----------------------

Few other small things but those were the main ones i noticed. Good Job on the Tab overall , u saved me some time learning it! I might decide to post a new tab with my revisions and give u credit as the basis if i feel inclined later
