3rd fret
This is my first tab so don't be too hard on me. The song is meant to be played on the 
but can also be played on the guitar. Make sure you have your capo on the 3rd fret. All 
are relative to the third fret.


Em         D
Head under water,
         G                  A
And they tell me to breathe easy for a while.
Em                 D            G      A
The breathing gets harder, even I know that.

Em                D                       G
You made room for me but it’s too soon to see,
       A
If I’m happy in your hands.
Em     D                   G          A
I’m unusually hard to hold on to.

Em              D
Blank stares at blank pages.
Em             A
No easy way to say this.
Em             D                 A       Bm
You mean well, but you make this hard on me.


                          Em
I'm not gonna write you a love song,
           A
'Cause you asked for it,
           D             G
'Cause you need one, you see.
              Em
I'm not gonna write you a love song,
           A
'Cause you tell me it's,
              D
Make or break in this.
          G
If you’re on your way,
              Em              G
I'm not gonna write you to stay.
    Bm
If all you have is leaving,
          A                       Em          G
I’m gonna need a better reason to write you a love song today.

Bm A
Today.

(same chord progression throughout the song for the verses)

I learned the hard way,
That they all say things you want to hear.
My heavy heart sinks deep down under you,
And your twisted words, your help just hurts.
You are not what I thought you were.
Hello to high and dry.

Convinced me to please you.
Made me think that I need this too.
I’m trying to let you hear me as I am.

I'm not gonna write you a love song,
'Cause you asked for it,
'Cause you need one, you see.
I'm not gonna write you a love song,
'Cause you tell me it's,
Make or breaking this.
If you’re on your way,
I'm not gonna write you to stay.
If all you have is leaving,
I’m gonna need a better reason to write you a love song today.

Promise me you'll leave the light on,
To help me see with daylight, my guide, gone.
'Cause I believe there's a way you can love me because I say,

I won't write you a love song,
'Cause you asked for it,
'Cause you need one you see.
I'm not gonna write you a love song,
'Cause you tell me it's make or breaking this.
Is that why you wanted a love song,
'Cause you asked for it,
'Cause you need one you see.
I’m not gonna write you a love song,
'Cause you tell me it's make or breaking this.
If you’re on your way,
I’m not gonna write you to stay.
If your heart is nowhere in it,
I don’t want it for a minute.
Babe, I’ll walk the seven seas when I believe that there's a reason to,
Write you a love song today.
Today

Hey you did GREAT! it helped me find out the real thing, you got it spot on, with the Em, starting out and the capo on
the 3rd fret, chorus doesn't have any problems either BUT what i'm hearing next to the recording is a progression that
goes something like Em, (quick F#/D to) G then something that looks to me like a B/D then D2, so its Em (F#/D)to G B/D
to D2 if you want the fingering on those chords shoot me a message.

this is FANTASTIC for me because i am a complete beginner... i can only play the basic chords that you don't have to barre so YAY i can now play this song... and it's been in my head for AGES!

One minor thing though (no pun intended... you might consider Am rather than A?

so yea, other than that, keep up the good work! :)

I want to post or [tab]
