                BETTER HOMES AND GARDENS - Taking Back Sunday
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: alaman94
E-mail: chris.miles94@gmail.com

I was actually about to draft a chord for "Weathered" by The Hotel Year when I saw that I had this half
completed from months ago. I had some trouble back then trying to figure it out, but Matthew Florio's tab
helped a bunch with the chord progressions. I also want to give credit to PLyrics.com for the lyrics. This
seems spot on. I hope you all like it!


Tuning: Half-step down


[Intro]
    D         Em        C         C
eb|---------|---------|---------|---------|
Bb|---------|---------|---------|-------0~|
Gb|-------0~|-------0~|-------0~|----2~---|

                                    When you took...

[Verse 1]
                   D        Em                 C
When you took that ring off, balled it in your fist
C                   D       Em                 C          C
Eyes like a smoking gun, surprised at what you did   
   D                        Em                      C       C
So don't even think for one second you're following me in
   D              Em          C       C
My parents are home, so is my kid


[Pre-Chorus]
        Am        Bm             C
Just go on. That house that you hate
     C             Em          D        C      C
That house that we bought and failed to make


[Verse 2]
                   D        Em           C
When you took that ring off, I sat there stunned
C                D       Em                   C      C
Parked out in my car, surprised at what you'd done
    D                      Em                   C            C
The courage that must have took left me utterly speechless
    D                       Em                       C           C
And though it came as no surprise I still couldn't believe it


[Pre-Chorus]
     Em    D       C           Em    D       C
eb|-------------------------|--------------------------|
Bb|-------------------------|----------------------0~--|
Gb|----0-----------------0~-|----0---------------------|
Db|--2--------0------2------|--2---2----0------2-------|
Ab|------0--2---2--3---3----|---------2---2--3---3-----|
Eb|-------------------------|--------------------------|

Em        D         C        C
   You'll never be happy
Em        D         C        C
   You'll never be happy


[Chorus]
                   Em
But it was all for nothing
                  C
Yeah it was all a waste
            G  D/F#            Am
You held on tight and for dear life
                   C
But it was all for nothing


[Verse 3]
                   D        Em                C
When you took that ring off, threw it at your feet
    C            D     Em                C      C
You didn't say a word, much less look at me
    D                      Em                     C          C
The courage that must have took I just couldn't believe it
        D                               Em                         C         C
In that moment you were perfect, and it made all the bullshit seem worth it


[Chorus]
                   Em
But it was all for nothing
                  C
Yeah it was all a waste
            G  D/F#            Am
You held on tight and for dear life
                   G
But it was all for nothing
                  C
Yeah it was all a waste
            Em       D/F#
You held on tight
            (Held on tight)
             Am
And for dear life
             (For dear life)
                   C
But it was all for nothing
                   (Held on tight and for dear life)

(We held on tight)


[Pre-Chorus] 
(Play Pre-Chorus riff)

        Am        Bm             C
Just go on. That house that you hate
     C             Em          D        C      C
That house that we bought and failed to make


[Pre-Chorus]
                   Em
But it was all for nothing
                  C
Yeah it was all a waste
    Em         D         C        C
And now you'll never be happy
Em        D         C        C
   You'll never be happy


[Chorus]
                     Em
Cause it was all for nothing
             C
It was all a waste
            G  D/F#            Am
You held on tight and for dear life
                   G
But it was all for nothing
                 C
Yea it was all a waste
            Em       D/F#
You held on tight
            (Held on tight and)
             Am
And for dear life
             (For dear life)
                   Em                C 
But it was all for nothing
               (We held on tight and for dear life)

[Outro]
    Em      D/F#              Am
       When you took off that ring
(We held on tight     and     for dear life) 
                       C
When you took off that ring
                   (We held on tight)
