Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Hello, this is my first tab! I really adore this song and band. I kept checking if
there'd be a tab for it on here but there never was so I tried to figure it out on my own.
I'm not 100% sure if this is correct but I think it's accurate for the most part. 
Corrections and suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!

Intro

D

Verse

D
Ah, oh, oh, oh ay ah
Ah, oh, oh, oh ay ah, ay ah
D
I’ll be waiting out here,
Waiting at your door
If you want it I could try and get you little, little more
F#m
Ah, oh, oh, oh ay ah
Ah, oh, oh, oh ay ah, ay ah
D
I’ll break a promise that I made to you yesterday
I’ll never hide from you or ever try to run-run away
F#m
Ah, oh, oh, oh ay ah
Ah, oh, oh, oh ay ah

G F#m Em

Verse

D
I wrote a letter when I met her and tore out the page
I threw it in a box and threw it somewhere far, far away
F#m
Ah, oh, oh, oh ay ah
Ah, oh, oh, oh ay ah
D
You tell me secrets and you tell me that you want some more
It’s not up to me to try and help you settle, settle score
F#m
Ah, oh, oh, oh ay ah
Ah, oh, oh, oh ay ah

G F#m Em x2


Chorus

D
I could take you out in the afternoon,
Dodge the sharks as we swim to the pontoon,
G
I know-oh-oh-oh it's a metaphor,
I know-oh-oh-oh we're still on the shore
D
Light a fire in our lifeboat
Just to keep warm but we won’t stay afloat
G
I know-oh-oh-oh it’s a metaphor,
I know-oh-oh-oh we’re still on the shore,

G F#m Em

Verse

D
Sit-sat at home expecting I’ll be driving round
I came to pick you up so you can try and let me, let me down
F#m
Ah, oh, oh, oh ay ah
Ah, oh, oh, oh ay ah
D
It’s so annoying how you hated, put yourself in pain
It’s disappointing cause it’s just a made-up little, little game
F#m
Ah, oh, oh, oh ay ah
Ah, oh, oh, oh ay ah

G F#m Em x2

Chorus

D
I could take you out in the afternoon
Dodge the sharks as we swim to the pontoon
G
I know-oh-oh-oh it’s a metaphor,
I know-oh-oh-oh we’re still on the shore,
D
Light a fire in our lifeboat
Just to keep warm but we won’t stay afloat
G
I know-oh-oh-oh it’s a metaphor,
I know-oh-oh-oh we’re still on the shore

G F#m Em x4

End on Em

Hey thanks for tabbing this! Just a couple of things:
Firstly, the lyrics in the chorus are a bit off.. should be:

I could take you out in the afternoon,
Dodge the sharks as we swim to the pontoon,
I know-oh-oh-oh it?s a metaphor,
I know-oh-oh-oh we?re still on the shore

Also, I think that the G in the chorus could be an F#m...

But anyways, overall a good tab so thanks a lot :)
