song: lovers dearest
artist: marianas trench

this is my first tab, so it may be a little ruff, but what ever! this song was 
originally tabbed on piano, so don't i don't know if it's 100% correct. i did mess 
around with it on my guitar, how i did it on piano sounds correct. i know some of 
the lyrics are wrong, got them off a website. :P 

strumming pattern: you strum each chord about four to six times when you don't see 
*. depends. once it get's to "it hurts me to say" you strum each chord about eight 
times.  it ends at "but it might be alright if you go".


* =one strum   
() =possible chord

VERSE 1
Em*                    C*     
This place is a hole, but I don't want to go.
G*              D     
I wish we could stay here forever alone.
Em                       C
This time that we waste, but i still love your taste.
      G                      D
Don't let him take my place, don't just sit there.

CHORUS
Em                               C
Sometimes I wish you would leave me.
G                             D
Well I'm not sick of you yet, that's as good as it gets,
Em                 C
I'll just hide it, or i could slip into you,
G                   D
Its so easy to come back into you.
Em                    C
oh, ouh, ouh, oh, ouh, oh, ouh, ouh 

VERSE 2
G                   D
I stand for awhile, and waited for words,
Em                 C
Seen but not heard and struggled to try.
G                          D
My tongue's turning black, but I'll take you back.
Em                    C             G
You're still the best more or less, I guess.
D
I guess.

CHORUS
                Em
Don't you leave me,
C                 G   
Well I'm not sick of you yet,
D
That's as good as it gets,
Em                 C
I'll just try to hide it, or I could slip into you,
G              D
Its so easy to come back into you.


BRIDGE
Em                      C
It hurts me to say that it hurts me to stay.
G                       D
And it might be alright if you go.
Em                      C
It hurts me to say that I want you to stay,
G                       D
But it might be alright if you go.

CHORUS
Em       C   G              
So leave me, well I'm not sick of you yet,
D
That's as good as it gets.
Em                        C
I'll just try to hide it, or I could slip into you,
G               D
It's so easy to come back into you.
Em                    C
oh, ouh, ouh, oh, ouh, oh, ouh, ouh 

ENDING
G                      D   
Sometimes I think that the bitter in you,
Em
And the quitter in me,
C                        G    
Is the bitter in you and the quitter in me.
D                      Em
The bitter in you, and the quitter in me,
C                        G
Is the bitter in you and the quitter in me.
D                      Em 
The bitter in you, and the quitter in me,
C                        G
Is the bitter in you and the quitter in me,
D   Em  C   G                (D)*
Is, bet-ter than the both of us.

note: i think it sounds good ending with the G fading away, but the D could be 
played there at the end once. if you are in a band and want to add another guitar, 
there is another part to the song. it sounds good on the piano and should sound 
good with guitar. here is the tab:

e|--------------------------------|
B|------0---1----------0----1-----|
G|---0----0---0-----0----0----0---|
D|--------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------|


you would play this right after the first chord strum for everything and would 
play this at the oh, ouh, ouh, oh, ouh, oh, ouh, ouh at lease twice instead of 
playing the chords. when ever there is a silent part in the song (just the piano) 
you would play this. there is a rest before you play the next one. i put it up 
there twice but, you only play it once at some part. on the piano, you would play 
this with your right hand, would press the keys G,B,G,C,G. just repeat it. keep in 
mind, i did do this on acoustic guitar.

go to my youtube channel: vevo895

i'll have a video up soon of me explaining how to play this on guitar and piano.

hope this helped! leave a comment letting me know if there is anything i need to 
change or you think a chord should be something else.
