I Was Broken
covered by Rob Pattinson
originally by Marcus Foster

I've seen quite a few tabs for this, but I felt like they were missing the little 
things that he does while playing. Hopefully this is right, and the lyrics are 
good, because it sounds like it to me and it's my first tab I've put on here. If 
you have any questions, let me know.

I wasn't sure what some of the chords were, so I just made up names.

*He likes to go back and forth between the D and Dsus4. Listen to the song for 
the strumming and switches.

Intro 
G  G/C  G/C*  G/C  G


G  G/C  G
I was broken
        D/F#  Cadd9   
I was tired now I'm bound
                  G  G/C G
My head is off the ground
               D/F#  Cadd9
For a long time I was so weary
 G            G/C  G
Time will decide, not before
                D/F#  Em            
No one loves the nighttime at the door
                         Dsus4   D
Haunted by the things I've deemed
                              Em             Dsus4  D
Something between the burning light and the dusty shade

G  G/C    G                        D/F#  Cadd9
Said I used to think the past was dead and gone
      G  G/C   G
But I was wrong, so wrong
                       D/F#  Cadd9                G  G/C  G
Whatever makes you blind just makes you strong, makes you strong
                           D/F#  Em
And by the time I'm melting into many forms
                      Dsus4  D
From the day that I was born
                                   Em
And I know that there is no place to hide
                   Dsus4   D
Something between the burning shade and the faded light

G                             D/F#
And I was broken for a long time
Em           Dsus4    G
But it's over now
                              D/F#
And I was broken for a long time
Em           Dsus4    G
But it's over now

G  G/C  G                                          D/F#  Cadd9
Yes you, yeah you walk these lonely streets and people stare
   G  G/C   G
People stare
              D/F# Cadd9
Now some fool just got near
        G  G/C  G
And I do pretend
                                  D/F#   Em
Now I'm free from all the things that saved my friends
                       Dsus4 D
And I was debted to the end
                             Em
Now I know I can change the mood
                              Dsus 4
Something between the burning shade and the faded light
G                            D/F#
And I was broken for a long time 
Em         Dsus4        G
But it's over now, it's over now
G
Mm it's over now, now, now
G
It's over now, it's over now.
G
It's over now, now, now

G               D/F#  Em
Said I was broken for a long time
Cadd9          Em
But it's over, but it's over (3x)
Em             Cadd9
But it's over now, now, now, now
Em             Cadd9
But it's over, love is over
Em             Cadd9
But it's over now
Em             Cadd9
But it's over, love is over
Em             Cadd9
But it's over now, now, now

G                 D/F# Em
I was broken for a long time yeah
Em               Cadd9
But it's over, but it's over now yeah
Em           Cadd9             Em
Over now, it's all over, it's over now.
