The Intro – you start of with an open F chord 012300, with your little finger on the 
3rd fret B string and you play this riff

e|---0--------|
B|-1---1------|
G|-------2----|
e|------------|
B|------------|
G|------------|

Once you've done this you lift your little finger and begin strumming the intro


[Intro]

F   Am  (x2) then to the G before the lyrics start


[Verse 1]

G         Am            Em
     Oh, Life is bigger…...It's bigger than you,
            Am                              Em
and you are not me, the lengths that I will go to
                      Am    Em               Dm                        G
The distance in your eyes,       Oh no, I've sa-id too much…… I set it up


[Pre-Chorus 1]

                  Am                          Em
That's me in the corner, that's me in the spot-light,
          Am                   Em
Losing my religion, trying to keep, up, with you
       Am                         Em             Dm                             G
And I don't know if I can do it,      Oh no I've said too much, I haven't said enough


[Chorus]

                             F
I thought that I heard you laughing,
                  G         Am        F                 G       Am
I thought that I heard you sing….. I think I thought I sa-w you try


[Verse 2]

G             Am                     Em
     Every whisper, of every waking hour,
          Am                              Em
 I'm choo-sing my confessions, trying to keep an eye on you
        Am                              Em                Dm               G
Like a hurt lost and blinded fool, fool      Oh no, I've said too much…..I set it up


[Pre-Chorus 2]

          Am                      Em
Consider this, consider this, the hint of the century
          Am                  Em
Consider this, the slip, that brought me to my knees... failed
Am                                Em                           Dm         G
What if all these fantasies come,    flailing around, now I've said, too much


[Chorus]

                            F
I thought that I heard you laughing,
                  G         Am       F                 G        Am
I thought that I heard you sing…… I think I thought I sa-w you try


At this point the song goes into the mandolin solo, and most tabs
Play this starting on the 12th fret, but it's easier playing it like this
you stay with the Am chord and play this little riff

e|-0-0-0-----------------0-0-0------------------|
B|------3-3-3-1-1-1------------3-3-3-1-1-1------|
G|-----------------2-2-2------------------2-2-2-|
e|----------------------------------------------|
B|----------------------------------------------|
G|----------------------------------------------|

C                   D       C                D
But that was just a dream. That was just a dream


[Pre-Chorus 1]

                 Am                       Em
That's me in the corner, That's me in the spot-light,
          Am                  Em
Losing my religion, trying to keep up with you
      Am                          Em                Dm                           G
And I don't know if I can do it,       Oh no, I've said too much, I haven't said enough


[Chorus]

                           F                          G         Am
I thought that I heard you laughing, I thought that I heard you sing
   F                 G       Am       F                      Am
I, think I thought I saw you try, but that was just a dream, try, cry, why, try
F                             Am            G           Am
That was just a dream, just a dream, just a dream, Dream

To end you end the verse with an Am chord again and just pick the high E string 7
times, then one downward strum on the Am, repeat this 4 times and end with the
little end riff, still on the Am chord
