Tuning: D# G D F A# D

I know there's another tab posted for this song on this site with a five star rating.
However, I'm 100% sure the tuning structure and tablature are very inaccurate.
I spent a few hours correcting that tab and came up with this, which I'm sure is nearly 
correct.
It's a great song, enjoy!**Written by Mike Kinsella (Owen) for 'American Football' in 1999**

 p = pull off/on
(x)= optional note, fun to switch up etc.

The song break down structure in bars/lyrics is as follows:

[1] x4
let's just forget
everything said
and everything we did
best friends, better halves

[2] x4
goodbyes
and the autumn night
when we realized
we were falling out of love

[3] x4 (long bars)

[4] x6
the last thing
you want to be
is overly dramatic
I just think it's best
cause you can't miss what you forget

[5] x4
so let's just pretend
everything and anything
between you and me
was never meant

[1] x12
was never meant
