I was really surprised there were no decent tabs for this song;
and it's always been one of my favorites, so I went ahead and tabbed it.
I'm no good at writing out strumming patterns,
I wish people would stop e-mailing asking me to do so.
What I do know is, you should emphasize these notes during the verses;
whether you hit that string individually then strum the chord,
or just strum and hit it a bit louder. (You don't have to though!)

[Verse]

Cadd9 Em7
 I am outside
               G               Cadd9
 And I've been waiting for the sun
         Em7
 With my wide eyes
           G                    Cadd9
 I've seen worlds that don't belong
          Em7                 G            Cadd9
 My mouth is dry with words I cannot verbalize
       Em7            G  
 Tell me why we live like this

C        Em      D
 Keep me safe inside
                   C
 Your arms like towers
       Em   D
 Tower over me, yeah


[Chorus]

Em7           G
 Cause we are broken
D
 What must we do to restore
Em7  G
 Our innocence
D                        C
 And oh, the promise we adored
         Em         
 Give us life again
C              Em       G
 Cause we just wanna be whole


[Verse]

Cadd9     Em7
 Lock the doors
                 G
 Cause I like to capture this voice
Cadd9       Em7
 It came to me tonight
         G               Cadd9
 So everyone will have a choice
           Em7
 And under red lights
             G              Cadd9
 I'll show myself it wasn't forged
       Em7
 We're at war
         G
 We live like this


[Pre-Chorus]

C        Em      D
 Keep me safe inside
                   C
 Your arms like towers
       Em   D
 Tower over me


[Chorus]

Em7           G
 Cause we are broken
D
 What must we do to restore
Em7  G
 Our innocence
D                        C
 And oh, the promise we adored
         Em         
 Give us life again
C              Em       G
 Cause we just wanna be whole

[Bridge]

Bb     F    C (F)
 Tower over me
Bb     F    C  D
 Tower over me

D
 And I'll take the truth at any cost


[Chorus]

Em7           G
 Cause we are broken
D
 What must we do to restore
Em7  G
 Our innocence
D                        C
 And oh, the promise we adored
         Em         
 Give us life again
C              Em       G
 Cause we just wanna be whole

(above) you tune a half step by tuning to standard each string when you are holding down on the first fret.
