This is an awesome song off of Jon Foreman's EP, Fall. I saw a tab for it but there was 
lot of mistakes so I figured I'd give it a try. This is my first tab, so sorry if it 
Either way let me know what you think.

Intro
e]--------------------------|
B]--------------------------|
G]--------7--------6--------|
D]------4-------------------|   4x
A]----5-------4--4----------|
E]----------5---5-----------|

Verse
     "The moon is a magnet..."
e]----------------------------------------------------------------|
B]---------------------------9-------------------0----------------|
G]--------7---------------5--------------8-------------------7----|
D]------4-----------6---------------------------------------------|   2x
A]----5-------4---4-----7----------6---6-------5-------5---7------|
E]----------5---5-----------------7--7-------3-------3---5--------|

Chorus
This part your just gonna have to play with. the picking pattern is pretty weird but 
get it in time if you play along with the song. the chords are:

1st "What are we if we're not in love."
e]----x-----x------x------x------|
B]----3-----3------3------3------|
G]----0-----0------2------2------|
D]----0-----2------0------0------|
A]----2-----0------x------0------|
E]----3-----x------x------2------|

2nd "What are we if we're not in love."
e]----x-----x------x------x------|
B]----3-----3------3------4------|
G]----0-----0------2------x------|
D]----0-----2------0------4------|
A]----2-----0------x------2------|
E]----3-----x------x------x------|

(this part in the chorus is weird picking too.. i can play it but i can't tab it. i'll 
you the chords and what it should loosely look like)
"These are the cages"
e]----x-----x------------------|
B]----5-----5------------------|   (I play it w/o the 6 on the 3rd string but
G]----5-----6------------------|     if you were going to play that string
D]----5-----7------------------|     it'd be a 6)
A]----3-----4------------------|
E]----x-----x------------------|

"A kiss is contagious"
e]----x-----x------------------|
B]----7-----7------------------|
G]----7-----8------------------|  (Same thing here as above except the 8)
D]----7-----9------------------|
A]----5-----6------------------|
E]----x-----x------------------|

"It will betray us all"
e]----x-----x-------x------------|
B]----8-----12------14-----------|
G]----x-----12------14-----------|
D]----9-----12------14-----------|
A]----7-----10------12-----------|
E]----x-----x-------x------------|

"A kiss will betray us all"
e]----x--------------x-------------------|
B]----12-------------14------------------|
G]----12-------------14------------------|
D]----12-------------14------------------|
A]----10-------------12------------------|
E]----x--------------x-------------------|

(and this is how it might look tabbed out)
     "These are the cages"   "A kiss is contagious"
e]-------------------------------------------------------|
B]--------5-----------5----------7-----------7-----------|
G]----------5------------6---------7-----------8---------|
D]------5-----5----7------------7----7-----9-------------|
A]----3----------4------------5---------6----------------|
E]-------------------------------------------------------|

 "It will betray us..............all"
e]--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B]------8-------------12-----------------14-----14--------------------------|
G]--------9--------------12-------------------14----------------------------|
D]----9-----9------12-------12--------14------------------------------------|
A]--7-----------10-----------------12---------------------------------------|
E]--------------------------------------------------------------------------|

"A kiss will betray..........us all.
e]--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B]--------12----------------14----------------------------------------------|
G]-----------12-------------------------------------------------------------|
D]-----12-------12------14--------------------------------------------------|
A]--10---------------12-----------------------------------------------------|
E]--------------------------------------------------------------------------|

this tab is a good start. but the intro and verse are missing notes, and some are wrong. the chord charts that go from "what are we if we're not in love" up till the "a kiss will betray us all" part are almost perfect. but the picking tab for that isn't. a few months ago I spend a LONG time figuring this song out, and the tab that I wrote should be almost exactly right, though it's hard to play and make it sound right.
