Somewhere I Belong
by Linkin Park

Tabbed by Dr. Linus Rebar

This is the first single off of Linkin Park's
second album, Meteora. The song starts off 
with an electronic intro which is soon accompanied
by Brad Delson's simple, clean guitar riff. The
rest of the song is a change-off between the heavily
distorted power chords and the intro riff.

I also included the lyrics which I transcribed myself.

Tuning: Drop D and a 1/2 Step (Db Ab Db Gb Bb Eb)

Lyrics:

(When this began)
I had nothing to say,
and I get lost in the nothingness 
inside of me.
(I was confused)
And I let it all out to find,
that I'm not the only person 
with these things in mind.
(inside of me)
But all that they can see the words reveal,
is the only real thing that i got left to feel.
(nothing to lose)
Just stuck, hollow and alone
and the fault is my own.
And the fault is my own.

[Chorus]
I wanna heal
I wanna feel
What I thought was never real
I wanna let go of the pain I've felt so long
(Erase all the pain 'til it's gone)
I wanna heal
I wanna feel
Like I'm close to something real
I wanna find something I wanted all along
Somewhere I belong

And I got nothing to say
I can't believe I didn't fall
right down on my face.
(I was confused)
Looking everywhere,
only to find 
that it's not the way I had imagined it,
all in my mind.
(So what am I?)
Or do I have the negativity
'cuz I can justify the way everyone is looking at me.
(Nothing to lose)
Nothing to gain, hollow and alone
And the fault is my own.
And the fault is my own.

[Chorus]

I will never know
myself until I do this on my own.
And i feel never feel,
anything else
until my wounds are healed.
I will never make,
anything until I break away from me.
I will break away
I'll find myself today.

[Chorus]

I wanna heal.
I wanna feel like I'm somewhere I belong.
I wanna heal.
I wanna feel like I'm somewhere I belong.
Somewhere I belong.
