All of the tabs I have read are wrong. This is how he plays it on the video clip:

Capo 1

[Verse 1]

F               C
And I saw it coming
        Em            Am                   C/G (C major with G as the bass note)
I saw emptiness and tragedy
F                        C
And I felt like running
So far away
Then knew I had to stay
                F                             C
And I know I’m older
        Em                              Am         C/G
I look back and I still feel the pain
F                                            C                                    Em
I know I’ll be stronger and I know I’ll be fine
For the rest of my days


         C              Em     Am     C/G    
I’ve seen better days
        F          C   Em     Am    C/G
Put my face in my hands
        F                   C                 Em      Am  C/G
Get down on my knees and I pray to God
        F       C                    Em        Am  C/G
Hope he sees me through to the end

[Verse 2]

F                C
I notice most things
           Em            Am   C/G
But I didn’t notice the change
F               C
It was hot in the morning
Then it turned so cold
Towards the end of the day
                 F                               C
There was no conversation
          Em            Am  C/G
I just felt like I was in space
F              C
I needed my friends there
I just turned around
You were gone without a trace



F               C
Now I have just started
        Em              Am   C/G
And I wandered on to the end
F               C
There’s nothing I have lost
        Em                      (strum)
That was once placed upon my hands
F               C
And all of these hard times
            Em          Am   C/G
There fading around the bend
F               C
And now that I’m wiser
I cannot wait till I can help my friends

[Chorus] x 2
F               C             Em        Am   C/G               F                           
Seen better     Na       Na     Na Na Na Na Na                   

C             Em        Am         C/G                    F                         
Na       Na     Na Na Na Na Na  

C             Em        Am    C/G                         F                         
Na       Na     Na Na Na Na Na  

C             Em        Am      C/G                        F                                
Na       Na     Na Na Na Na Na

This is the best tab for this song... well done with the capo. however, after the Aminor there is a quick Aminor7.. Aminor7 is 002010 with respect to the capo. its a detail but it add a whole new beauty to the song... Pete Rocks!!! Common AUSSIES!

can someone please try playing Cadd9, G, Em, Am in the verse instead of the F, C, Em, Am. I think it sounds way better when i play it the other way. try it and get back to me. GetFirefox!www.mozilla.org
