The Color Morale - "Hold On Pain Ends" Chords
Tabbed by: Alex Starbard

Tuning: half step down (low to high) - Eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb

One of my students wanted to learn this song and I could not find chords anywhere, so I figured it out. 
This is actually a 2 guitar part song, where the two guitars play separate parts. This version is arranged
for one guitar.

Chords used:
    Em7    G   Cadd9  D/F# Cmaj7   Em    C
Eb|--3--|--3--|--3--|--2--|--0--|--0--|--0--|
Bb|--3--|--3--|--3--|--3--|--0--|--0--|--1--|
Gb|--0--|--0--|--0--|--2--|--5--|--0--|--0--|
Db|--2--|--0--|--2--|--0--|--5--|--2--|--2--|
Ab|--2--|--2--|--3--|-----|--3--|--2--|--3--|
Eb|--0--|--3--|-----|--2--|-----|--0--|-----|


Intro:
|   Em7   |   G   |   Cadd9   |   G   |  x2

Em7                   Cadd9    G                                       
      And sometimes,                 the most beautiful 
Em7                     Cadd9    G                             Em7
pain in life is the kind       you can't disguise or hide.
Em7                      Cadd9         G
And the hard truth about life.             If I'm not
Em7     
Allowed to give up on mine,
Cadd9           G                    Cadd9       G
You are not allowed to not even try. 
               
        Em7          D/F#          Cadd9
One day at a time,          you'll have to remake
    G                    D/F#
The same decision as the one I made last night.

Em7     G        Cadd9            G
You and I have already started to die.
Em7               G                 Cadd9            G
And now that I understand, why I've never felt quite so alive.
Em7        G         Cadd9              G
And I feel like I've sang about scars a hundred times
Em7         G           Cadd9                G          
But for the record I’ve found the reason for mine. 

Em7                  Cadd9   G
      And sometimes,              we need to find a
Em7                                   Cadd9   G
Reason for the pain in our own lives.             Oh, and
Em7                Cadd9                  G  
Mine was you and I promise this song is a place for the truth. 
Em7                       Cadd9           G             Cadd9
 We can’t keep hiding and hurting. I know I’ve tried to. 

    G        Em7      D/F#                Cadd9
One day at a time,          we just might have to remake
     G       D/F#
The decision every day for the rest of life.

Em7     G       Cadd9             G
You and I have already started to die.
Em7              G                  Cadd9            G
And now that I understand, why I've never felt quite so alive.
Em7        G        Cadd9               G
And I feel like I've sang about scars a hundred times
Em7        G           Cadd9              G                Cmaj7
But for the record I’ve finally found the reason for mine. 

            Em      D/F#          C
And for the record,        I'm in California still writing one 
Em       D/F#       C
Day at a time.           And for the record, 
Em           D/F#            C
        I refuse to be ashamed of all my scars. 
Em            D/F#
You and I are both the same.
 
(switch to finger-picking)
  |       Em7      |        G        |        C        |       C       |

Db|----------------|-----------------|-----------------|---------------|
Ab|7---7-----7-----|10--10-----10----|-3---3-----3-----|3---3-----3----|
Eb|----------------|-----------------|-----------------|---------------|

(continue finger-picking in the same pattern)
Em7           G             C
      We've already cheated death so many times. 
(electric guitars kick in, palm muted versions of the same chords)
Em7               G            C                G
        If we’re going to die, why not cheat it again tonight?

Em      G        Cadd9            G
You and I have already started to die.
Em               G                  Cadd9            G
And now that I understand, why I've never felt quite so alive.
Em         G         Cadd9              G
And I feel like I've sang about scars a hundred times
Em          G           Cadd9                G                          
But for the record I’ve found the reason for mine. 

|   Em    |   G   |   Cadd9   |   G   |  x2
