Ok well I decided to resend this tab again cuz I put the wrong title on it.
SO heres TAKE THIS not TAKE IT as I made the error last time.
 This is a great song by the way, very powerful and emotional. Hope you
like it as much as I did. :P

Tuning:GTR 1 (Electric)EADGBE-Standard
       GTR 2 (Baritone)ADADAD- Typical Staind Tuning for their new album

Oh yeah. Since the pace of this song is kinda' slow, so you need to have your
amp set on delay or whatever gives you an echo effect. Ok well here it is..

The Outro is just the chorus again with the last two measures repeated.






LYRICS:

1st verse (INTRO)
I can't believe how far I've come,
Now watch me stumble and come undone,
If you take away these memories,
All that's left is just me,

Chorus:

Cause' I don't want this,
And I don't need this,
And I don't feel this,
It seems that even though she's with me,
I can't shake this,
And I can't fake this,
And I won't take this,
Anymore,

2nd Verse:

So you chose to break me heart,
I should have seen this from the start,
I'm haunted by your apathy,
All that's left is killing me,

Chorus:
Cause' I don't want this,
And I don't need this,
And I don't feel this,
It seems that even though she's with me,
I can't shake this,
And I can't fake this,
And I won't take this,
Anymore

Bridge:
Do you believe that the way you choose to be,
I've always had to see,
The brighter side of this so I don't lose my faith,
Now the sun has gone away,
It's getting colder everyday,
So before I free to death there's something I should say,

Chorus (OUTRO)

I don't want this,
And I don't need this,
And I don't feel this,
It seems that even though she's with me,
I still can't shake this,
And I can't fake this,
And I won't take this,
Though you say you understand,
You still won't face this,
Can't erase this,
And I won't embrace this,
Anymore.....


GREAT SONG! Any questions feel free to e-mail me or any comments too e-mail me. peace.

DADADA? What the hell kind of a "baritone" tuning is that?! Mike's baritone guitar is usually tuned to Ab Db Ab Db Gb Bb!

Plus the tab is extremly confusing, Its hard to tell which guitar plays what when. Instead of writing a hundred comments you coulda just said:
Gtr1 (Mike Mushok):
-----blablalba

Gtr2 (Aaron Lewis)
-----blablabla---

In addition to that, you didn't note the timing.
Have you ever looked at another tab before writing this?

its ADADAD dont be stupid, its tuned to that and if you dont believe me you can listen and play the song at the same time, and i should have to put in the time shit cuz its all in order dont be a retard and read, i put the shit right its not confusing but if more insist on the time measures I'll put it in, damn
