The other versions are good but I believe that mine is basically perfect, plus I
 did the whole song.

Tip- I like to use my pointer finger for the 7th frets and my ring finger for the 9th frets.

I know it's been a long, long year.

God forbid you to listen to me now.
D~                                                    G ~
I may have the pressure on good, but since that day

I'll never ask again.

(Play Intro)
D ~
It's funny, it's come right down to this.

I have to steal my time cause you won't give it up for free.
 D ~
I've been talking to the Moon all night, but the Stars won't say-
  G ~
-nothing to me.

And though I feel it's easy for a man to grow up-----\

I won't ask why.

They always told me you'd be

right on my time.

We're coming around.

(Play Intro)
D ~
I know you're kind of busy right now.

Been a day, but I haven't heard your call.
D~                                                 G~                       I climbed a
just to get a better view of you.

But I'll never ask again.

(Play Intro)
          D ~
It's crazy that we just can't feel the time

And lay down for awhile.

And let life catch your eye.
D ~
I've been relaxing with the Wind all day.
                                G ~
But the Sky won't open up for me.

(12:08pm Eastern Standard Time-August 31,2007) The tab is a little messed up because I copied and pasted it from Word Document. I just submitted the update so wait for update please before voting.
