OK, guys, This tab I have made 
before and posted it- so 
I'm going to try again.  It's 
what they play live but 
it can go both ways so don't
rate low just because it's different
actually play it and see how it is 
before you give me 1,2, or 3 stars 
here we go
                       Only Hope
                       Switchfoot
Key
/= slide
( _ )  play to make more realistic or if u want 2
That's really it...


MAIN CHORDS
    E  Esus4  A  Em  C9 Asus2 D  Em7 B* C* G*
E---0----0----0---0--0----0---3---0--0--0--0--|
B---0----0----2---0--3----0---2---3--3--3--3--|
G---0----2----2---0--0----2---3---0--0--0--0--|
D---1----2----2---2--2----2---0---2--0--0--0--|
A---2----2----0---2--3----0-------0--2--3--0--|
E---2----0--------0------------------------3--|

*= I'm not too sure about the chord so I marked it as the root
Ok guys, while you strum these chords during the bridge and chorus play them kinda muted 
some places and alternate from playing mostly the only high notes and only the low ones

INTRO/MAIN RIFF/ VERSES
E------3--------------------------------------------------------------|
B-----0-(0)----0------------------------3-----3----3------------------|
G--1/2---3---------------2-------------0-0---0-0--0-------(4)---------|
D------------0--(0)----0---0------4---------------------(4)-----------|
A------------------1/2----------2--2/3-----------3---3-2--------------|
E----------3------------------0------------3--------------------------|

If you are playing with your fingers, 
on those A string notes get your thumb really under 
the string and pluck it, 
it makes it sound more like 
how Jon (I think the lead guy is Jon...wait 
a second... yeah- It's Jon) plays it.
And the timing/ playing 
is like 1, 123 1, 123 etc,
but once you get to the 3, 030 part it's:
1, 23,4, 1, 23,4 etc.

The verses are sung while playing the main riff


CHORUS (live version)

     E     Esus4       A
So I lay my head back down
      E      Esus4      A          (C9)
And I lift my hands and pray to be only yours
  A          Em
I pray to be only yours
  A        C9      Em7
I know now your my only hope

strumming pattern:
d dudu dudu du dudu dudu, etc.

PRE- BRIDGE
E-----------------------------------------------------------|
B-----------------------------------------------------------|
G------------------4-4---4-4---------4-4--4-4---------------|
D-----4-4---4-4--2-----0-------4-4-2-----0-----4-4-2--------|
A---2-----0------------------2----------------0-------------|
E-----------------------------------------------------------|
That is kinda wrong and not 
very good but if u don't like 
it just go straight to the bridge

BRIDGE (live version)
  B*
I give you my apathy
C*
I'm giving you all of me (oh,oh)
G*
I want your symphony
A
Singing in all that I am
                Asus2
At the top of my lungs
Esus4
I'm giving it back

strumming pattern:
d du d dudud du d dudud, etc.

LYRICS
VERSE 1
There's a song that's inside of my soul
It's the one that I've tried to write over and over again
I'm awake and in the infinite cold
But You sing to me over and over and over and over again

CHORUS
So I lay my head back down
And I lift my hands And pray to be only yours
I pray to be only Yours
I know now You're my only hope

VERSE 2
Sing to me of the song of the stars
Of Your galaxy dancing and laughing and layghing again
When it feels like my dreams are so far
Sing to me of the plans that You have for me over again

BRIDGE
I give You my apathy
I'm giving You all of me
I want Your symphony
Singing in all that I am
At the top of my lungs I'm giving it back

That's it, the complete and awesome only hope tab by me, awsomeguitarguy- help keep the 
rock out, and have fun

people who think this is a wrong tab, it is not- I changed it so it could kina go both ways. That's probably why you say my chords are messed up

You forgot a chord on the chord chart, but otherwise,
GREAT JOB!
