Verse:
I m not saying that I m giving up
I m just trying not to think.. As much as I used to
Cause never is a lonely little messed up word
Maybe I ll get it right some..day

CHORUS: (play chorus chords)
For the first time in a long time I can say
That I want to try
I feel helpless for the most part
But I m learning to open my eyes
And the sad truth of the matter is
I ll never get over it
But I m gonna try
To get better~ and overcome each moment
..In my own way

I think it sounds better flat (I'm using the live version) But I think for the intro it starts on a 2 on the A string instead of a 3 but later in the song he plays it as a 3. It's just during the intro parts and outro that he plays a 3 on the A string. Sounds better in my opinion. Other than that, great tab that to me sounds pretty damn good.
