Song: Simon
Artist: Lifehouse
Album: No Name Face

Tabbed by: Zkar

Got a couple of tabs from the net, none souded quite right so I decided to go
ahead and write my own. This is a great (stunning) song, I salute Lifehouse for
this wonderful experience.

This is my 1st tab, so bear with my chord positioning, just play the chords and
you'll figure out the exact timing :-)

Have fun!, email me if you have any questions/feedback (zkar@hotmail.com)

Standard Tuning: EADGBE
IMPORTANT: Capo on 4

**Intro (preferably hold b on 3rd fret through intro on all chords), 

C - b - G
G - Am - Em

C - b - G
G - Am - G

**Verse 1 (preferably hold b on 3rd fret through Verse 1 on all chords),
C     b    G
Catch your breath
G   Am  Em
Hit the wall
C      b   G
Scream out loud
       G     Am Em     
as you start to crawl
     C  D    Em
Back in your cage
C   D    Em
the only place
C     D    Em
where they will 
Em    D   C
leave you alone

**Interlude 1
Cause the weak will seek the weaker
till they've broken them
could you get it back again
                G      D
Would it be the same
Fulfillment to their lack of strength 
at your expense
Left you with no defense
             G      D      C  <--Go to C to start of chorus
They tore it down.

    C      D        Em 
And I have felt the same
   C         D        Em
as you, I've felt the same 
   C         D        C
as you, I've felt the same.

**Verse 1 (preferably hold b on 3rd fret through Verse 2 on all chords),
   C   b   G      
Locked inside
    G Am Em   
the only place
      C   b     G
Where you feel sheltered
      G   Am   Em
Where you feel safe
    C    D   Em
You lost yourself 
        C      D  Em
in your search to find
C   D     Em
something else 
   Em   D    C
to hide behind.

**Interlude 2
Cause the fearful always 
preyed upon your confidence
Did they see the consequence
                G        D
They pushed you around
The arrogant build kingdoms
made of the different ones
Breaking them till they've become
             G       D     C  <--Go to C to start of chorus
Just another crown.

**Chorus (this time end it on G)

C      D  Em
Refuse to feel
C        D  Em
Anything at all
C      D  Em
Refuse to slip
Em     D  G
Refuse to fall
C     D  Em
Can't be weak
C     D     Em
Can't stand still
C     D    Em
Watch your back cause 
Em D   C
no one will

**Interlude 3
You don't know why 
I had to go this far
Traded your worth for these scars
                    G      D          
For your only company
Don't believe the lies 
that they've told to you
Yeah not one word was true
       G               D             C   <--Go to C to start of chorus
You're alright you're alright You're alright.

**Chorus (end on G and immediately go to Chorus again for la-da-da... etc..)

As you, I've felt the same

Move on to play chorus on a more acoustic rithm, while holding last 2 strings
on 3rd fret on EVERY note to give it that high "chime". End on Em.

Use Am/G instead of B
Use Abm/E instead of Am
