This rendition of "Alive" by Krewella is based the version of the song that I watched on
YouTube. It is currently available under the username "KrewellaMusicVEVO".

This song is composed in the key of F# minor. The E major chord repeatedly played
throughout the song could be functioning as a secondary dominant, tonicizing an A major chord.
Thus, it would be a V/III in F# minor. However, F# minor is a disputable key signature.
In its form, the song seems to ambiguously shift between the realm of F# minor and A
major. Suppose for a moment that it's actually composed in the key of A major. Then,
there wouldn't be any foreign chords to analyze. Therefore, it might be considerate to
interpret the chords in the key of A major, while acknowledging the distinctive sonority 
it shares with the relative minor key of F#.

In terms of its rhythmic properties, it conventionally utilizes common time (4/4) at a
tempo of approximately 128 beats per minute.

This was tabbed to make it easy for a solo guitarist to play. If this version does not
contain suitable fret patterns, then modifications can be made by the musician at any
time. Otherwise, enjoy the tab!

[CHORD CHART]

x = Omitted string

D(add#11) is a trick chord to play. Version 1 on my chord chart is easier to play for
me, but it requires a huge stretch. Version 2 is extremely difficult to play, but it is
condensed into one region.

[VERSE 1]

F#m                      E               A
Let's make this fleeting moment last forever
    D                   E
So, tell me what you're waiting for?
F#m               E               A
I'm gonna keep it frozen here forever
        D             E
There's no regretting anymore
F#m                       E
It's worth the wait, even so far away
    A                        D           E
I'm making the night mine, until the day I die
F#m                             E
No lights to brake, when you're hanging by fate
    A                             D              E
You know what it feels like, when you're dancing blind

Come on, make me feel alive

Meet me under shining lights

I've been waiting right here all my life
F#m          E                      A             D       E
Feelings you can't deny that you're living, open up your eyes
    F#m                         E
And I just wanna sink into your crazy laughter
A                                D          E
Come on, make me feel, until the pain don't matter
F#m                        E
Every second here makes my heart beat faster
A                              D       E
Finally think I found what I'm chasing after
