You Be The Anchor That Keeps My Feet On The Ground,
I'll Be The Wind That Keeps Your Heart In The Clouds
Tuning: Standard

I have no clue what song the other ppl were listening to
when they tabbed this song but i know this is almost 100%
true to the song although i haven't quite figured out everything

Intro/Verse 1
E|-------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------|
G|---0----0----0-----0----0----0----0----0---|
D|--2(2)—2(2)-4(4)--4(4)-5(5)-5(5)-4(4)-7(7)-|
A|-3----3---/5----/5----7----7---/5---/9-----|
E|-------------------------------------------|
And honestly, I have been begging for answers that you and only you can give to me.
A voice crying loud I've been crying for days now and as I start to run, I stop to breathe.

E|------------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------------|
G|---0----0----0----0----0----0----0----0---|
D|--2(2)—2(2)-4(4)-5(5)-2(2)-2(2)-4(4)-7(7)-|
A|-3----3---/5---/7----3----3---/5---/9-----|
E|------------------------------------------|
(And I was nearly scared to death) And I was nearly scared to death.
(Why you left in paragraphs) Why you left in paragraphs.
(The words were nearly over us) The words were nearly over us.
You stop and turn and grab your bags.

Chorus 1

A|-3~-3----------3-3----------5-5----------3-3---3/5---5-|
E|-------------------------------------------------------|
And I'll be here by the ocean
Just waiting for proof that there's
Sunsets and silhouette dreams

E|-------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------3--------------------------3--------------3-----|
G|-0---0-0-0----0---0--0---0--0---0-0-0----------0-0-0---|

A|-3-3----------5-5----7-7----3-3-------3--3/5-5---------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------|
All my sand castles fall
Like the ashes of cigarettes
And every waves drags me to sea

E|--------------------------------------------------------|

A|-3-3----------3-3----------5-5----------3-3-----3/5---5-|
E|--------------------------------------------------------|
I could stand here for hours
Just to ask God the question
"Is everyone here make-believe?"

E|--------------------------------------------|
B|-------3--------------------------3------3~-|
G|-0---0-0-0----0---0--0---0--0---0-0-0----0~-|
D|-2-2-2-----2--4-4-4--5-5-5--2-2-2-----2--4~-|
A|-3-3----------5-5----7-7----3-3----------5~-|
E|--------------------------------------------|
With a tear in His voice
He said, "Son, that's the question."
Does this deafening silence
Mean nothing to no one but me?

Verse 2
E|----------3-------------------|
B|----------3-------------------|
G|-0--------0-------------------|
D|-2-------------2/4-5----------|
A|-3-------------3/5---5--------|
E|------------------------------|
As hours move to minutes.
And minutes take longer to break.
I will be desperately awaiting but my tongue won't fall apart.
And we've been sitting here for hours all alone and in the dark.

E|--------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------|
G|-0----0----0----0----0----0-----|
D|-2----7----7----5----4----7-----|
A|-3----10---9----7----5----10----|
E|--------------------------------|
So let me think of how to word it. Is it too soon to say “perfect”?
If I could find another thirty minutes somewhere. I'm sure everything would find me. All 
left is just to sing.

Chorus 2
E|---35p3----35p3------5---3---2---|
B|--3----3--3----3---7--7---3---3--|
G|-0-------0--------0-0--0---0---0-|
D|---------------------------------|

E|---------------------------------|
And I'll be here by the ocean
Just waiting for proof that there's
Sunsets and silhouette dreams
All my sand castles fall
Like the ashes of cigarettes
And every waves drags me to sea
I could stand here for hours
Just to ask God the question
"Is everyone here make-believe?"
With a tear in His voice
He said, "Son, that's the question."
Does this deafening silence
Mean nothing to no one but me?

Tell me once again that you
Will love me till the death
And should I die, you swear
That you will come for me
As I fade away, you reach out your arms
 (And please don't let me go)
And please don't let me go
 (And please don't let me go)
And please don't let me go


Final Chorus
And I'll be here by the ocean
Just waiting for proof that there's
Sunsets and silhouette dreams
  All my sand castles fall
Like the ashes of cigarettes
And every waves drags me to sea
I could stand here for hours
Just to ask God the question
"Is everyone here make-believe?"
  With a tear in His voice
He said, "Son, that's the question."
Does this deafening silence
Mean nothing to no one but me?

Its pretty legit. Just look at these comments for the intro haha. Thanks bro, you really helped me learn this amazing song.
If it helps, my band uses 2 guitarist for the chorus (guitar one does a slow, low gain Strumming with the Slides, and Guitar 2 does the chorus 2 part)
Just use power chords for the bridge and stuff, tho.
