Capo
emorphous 263
3rd fret
Band:  OneRepublic
Song:  Apologize

Tabbed By:  Paul Morgan

There's already good tabs of this song on the site, but this is how I prefer to play it solo on the guitar.

Standard Tuning, Capo on 3rd
Fingerpicked - but should be easy with any plectrum (pick).

    I'm holding on your...    Ground.

I'm holding on your rope, 
Got me ten feet off the ground 
I'm hearin what you say but I just can't make a sound 
You tell me that you need me 
Then you go and cut me down, but wait 
You tell me that you're sorry 
Didn't think I'd turn around, and say... 

It's too late to apologize, it's too late 
I said it's too late to apologize, it's too late 

I'd take another chance, take a fall 
Take a shot for you 
And I need you like a heart needs a beat 
But it's nothin new 
I loved you with a fire red- 
Now it's turning blue, and you say... 
"Sorry" like the angel heaven let me think was you 
But I'm afraid... 

It's too late to apologize, it's too late 
I said it's too late to apologize, it's too late 

Bridge

It's too late to apologize, it's too late 
I said it's too late to apologize, it's too late 
It's too late to apologize, yeah 
I said it's too late to apologize, yeah- 
I'm holdin on your rope, got me ten feet off the ground...
