E            A          (E  F#m  B

E                                B                  C#m
   Facedown with the LA curbside ending    with the ones and zeros
E                            B                       C#m
   Downtown was a perfect place to hide
E                        B
   First star that I saw last night was the headlight of a manmade sky    But
E                            B
   Man made never made our dreams collide       collide

E                        E/D#                                   A
Here we are now with the fallen sky and the rain          Were awakening
E                        E/D#                                    A
Here we are now with the desperate youth and pain          Were awakening
E                   B                    C#m
Maybe it's called ambition   You've been talking in your sleep about a dream
We're awakening

E                  B               C#m              A
   last week spent living it up in dealines and the dead beats now but
E                    B               C#m               A
   this town doesn't look the same tonight
E                     B                 C#m          A
   these dreams start sing to me out of no where and all my live I
E                       B             C#m             A
   don't know that I've ever felt so alive           alive

             B            D           A
We're awakening

C#m                  B
     I wanna wake up kicking and screaming
     I wanna wake up kicking and screaming
C#m                       B
     I wanna heart that I know is beating,
     is beating, i'm bleading

C#m                  B
     I wanna wake up kicking and screaming
     I wanna live like I know what I'm leaving
C#m                       B
     I wanna heart that I know is beating
     It's beating,   It's beating,    It's beating     I'm bleeding


      B(silent}   C#                A
We're Awakening a Dream      We're Awakening

Jon, they guy who wrote the song, plays it on an acoustic and drops D. during the chorus
the song he plays an Esus [?79900] E/D# [X69900] A [7X9900]. During the verse he either
all the strings and lets the rest of the band play the melody cause he stays in the Esus 
Could possibly be playing [XX9900] and just lets the Tim (bass player) play
bass notes. But I play the chords without a bass player; I won't tell if you don't.

The intro/riff at the top has a chord progression in parentheses. Drew Shirley, the Lead
plays these as octaves E [x7x9xx] F#[x9x'11'xx] and so up the neck.

I chorded the song off of a cell phone recording so the lyrics are only as good as the
When the cd comes out with the lyrics actually audible don't hold it against me.

Also, I'm a music major who plays guitar and bass, so the root chord structure is right.
you don't know music yet learn your major and minor scales; they help a ton.

this is pretty good but Jon plays higher up around the 5th and 6th frets but chords work too.

i think this is him playing it right here:


he does play it higher, and this clip is a bit more involving with the guitar, since he's the only one playing ... I've been trying to figure out the chords and I'm wondering if anyone could help me out. Peace
