Passenger - life's for the living
This is my first tab so bare with me!

I like to play with the Capo on 6 but it's down to choice I suppose.

[Verse 1]
     Em                            C
Well great clouds wrapped round the town like elastic
G                              D
Cars stood like toys made from Taiwanese plastic
     Em                        C                    D
the boy laughed at the spastic dancing around in the rain
G                               D
While laundrettes clean clothes high heals rub toes
     Em                        C
Puddles splashed huddles of bus top crows
G                               D                                C
Dressed in their suits and their boots where they all looked the same

[Chorus 1]
     Em                        C
I took myself down to the cafe to find all, 
    G                      D
the boys lost in books and crackling vinyl, 
   Em                 C                    D       
and carved out a poem above the urinal that read..

          Em                D
Don't you cry for the lost, smile for the living, 
G                     C
get what you need and give what your given, 
Em                        C                           D
life is for the living so live it, or your better off dead.

[Verse 2]
     Em                          C
Well the evening pulled the moon out of its package
    G                             D
The stars shun like buttons on an old mans jacket
   Em                   C                              D
We needed a nail but we tapped it till it fell off the wall
      G                  D
While pigeons Peg drains sparks flew like planes 
    Em                             C
the rain showed the rainbows in the oil stains
   G                       D                    Em
We all had new iPhones but no one had no one to call

[Chorus 2]
     G                      D
When I stumbled down to the stomach of the town 
      Em                           C
where the window takes memories to slowly drown, 
       G                     D                  Em
with a hand to the sky and a mist in her eye she said..

          Em                D
Don't you cry for the lost, smile for the living, 
G                     C
get what you need and give what your given, 
Em                        C                           D
life is for the living so live it, or your better off dead.

[Verse 3]
    Em                     C          
I'm sick of this town this blind mans forage
   G                             D
we take the dreams down and they stick em in storage
    Em                       C                                      D
and you can have em back son when you've paid off your mortgage and loans
   G                        D    
oh hell with this place ill go it my own way 
     Em                     C
I'll stick out my thumb and trudge down the highway
G                       D            C
someday someone must be going my way home

[Chorus 3]
           Em                      C
until then I'll make my bed from a Disused car 
           G                         D
and with a mattress and leaves and a blanket of stars 
      Em                         C                       D
and I stitched the words into my heart with a needle and thread..

          Em                D
Don't you cry for the lost, smile for the living, 
G                     C
get what you need and give what your given, 
Em                        C                           D
life is for the living so live it, or your better off dead.

          Em                D
Don't you cry for the lost, smile for the living, 
G                     C
get what you need and give what your given, 
Em                        C                           D
life is for the living so live it, or your better off dead.

Heya!
Right chord progression... but I'm pretty sure it's
Am, not Em
F, not C
C, not G
G, not D

But other than that... it's really helpful to get to know the chords.

If you put a capo on 7, you play these chords, which is what Passenger plays... but these are the chords with no capo, so that always helps... but if you're playing the intro tab too... you need capo on 7

Sorry ? ABSOLUTELY WRONG!1st : VersNot : Em C G D -- Em C D G D Em C -- G D CBut ! Em C D G (Bm7) Em C D Em C D G (Bm7) Em C D 2nd : ChorusNot : Em C G -- -- D Em C D Em D G -- -- C Em C DBut : C D G (Bm7 Em) D C D G C D G (Bm7 Em) D C D Em
Und So weiter… Actually?If You play Am;F;G;C;Em7 with Capo on 7 (As in other tabs here), You get the same - Em;C;D;G;Bm7 ?.
