Hi there!  This is another great one:)
Same pattern throughout, really easy to play!
Have fun and let me know...

**Thanks to UG member lizziereid for bringing to
my attention a chord I missed :)


G/B- [320010] or [x20010] -Either way, but not positive if that's
                           the correct chord name though :/

Standard Tuning
No Capo

[Intro]

G D Am C x2


[Verse]

G                D                  Am     C
Long handwritten note, deep in your pocket
G                      D                              Am    C
Words, how little they mean, when you're a little too late
  G                  D                      Am     C
I stood right by the tracks, your face in a locket
     G                      D                    Am    C
Good girls, hopeful they'll be and long they will wait


[Chorus]

   G      D                Am          C
We had, a beautiful, magic love there
       G    D                 Am   G/B C
What a sad, beautiful, tragic love a---ffair


G D Am C


[Verse]

   G         D                      Am     C
In dreams, I meet you in warm conversation
        G              D               Am     C
We both wake in lonely beds, different cities
    G       D                       Am          C
And time is taking it's sweet time erasing you
    G                          D                         Am   C
And you've got your demons and darling they all look like me


[Chorus]

         G      D                Am          C
Cause we had, a beautiful, magic love there
       G    D                 Am   G/B C
What a sad, beautiful, tragic love a---ffair


G D Am C


[Bridge]

Am                C
Distance, timing, breakdown, fighting
G                       D
Silence, the train runs off its tracks
Am                            C
Kiss me, try to fix it, could you just try to listen
G                     D                Am*   G/B*     C*   C*  (*once)
Hang up, give up, and for the life, of us we can't get back


G


[Chorus]

  D                 Am          C
A beautiful, magic, love there
       G    D                  Am                 C
What a sad, beautiful, tragic, beautiful, tragic, beautiful
        G      D                 Am           C
What we had, a beautiful, magic, love there
       G    D                  Am   G/B C
What a sad, beautiful, tragic, love a---ffair
   G      D                 Am           C
We had, a beautiful, magic, love there
       G    D                  Am*  G/B* C    G* (*once)
What a sad, beautiful, tragic, love a----ffair

Really great tab, but a couple lyrics are wrong. It's not "time is ticking a sweet summer race in you". It is "time is taking its sweet time erasing you"

Also, every first time it says "affair" it should be "there"
Ex. (We had a beautiful magic love there)

Thanks for posting this. I really love all your tabs :)

Thanks guitarplayer_aj for bringing lyric mistakes to my attention so they can be fixed! I had found the lyrics online and tabbed away! I need to pay more attention but, I'm more focused on correct chords and placement I guess;)
There were tons of mistakes throughout this one (many more than what you even showed!) So, lyrics now fixed and they're from Taylor's website so I think they're all correct;)
