Verse:
E
Lately I'm alright
And lately I'm not scared
               C#m
I've figured out
                     B
That what you do to me feels like
                    A
I'm floating on air

I don't need to know right now
           C#m       B   A
All I know is I believe
In the very thing that got us here
        C#m        B   C#m Eb*
And now I can't leave

'cause I'm caught in suspension

Verse:
E
Now,
                      A
I'm wanting this for sure
                          C#m
And I'll beg for nothing more
                        B
I'll plan all day and drive all night
                            A
You'll love what's in store
I can't seem to stop this now
       C#m         B
Even if it's not so clear
And I'll take what I can get
  C#m        B        *mute all strumming*
If you want me here (If you want me here)

Great tab! Sounds right and very easy to understand!

Some possible corrections, though I'm not sure how it actually sounded in the video you looked at:

I think you might want an A chord at the end of "Even if it's not so clear." Since the trend seems to be C#m --> B --> A in the rest of the song.

And I think the "muffled strumming" might be C#m --> Eb*, as it usually is in the prechorus.

Regardless, thanks for the awesome tab.
