WAITING GAME – THE COOPER TEMPLE CLAUSE
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Dan_smee
Email: dan.smee@gmail.com

I hope this is close to correct. I think it’s in the right key, the outro may however 
on the C# rather than the D# (move it all back two frets), and I didn’t listen to the 
change in the interlude, so Dan’s chords are missing there.

Tuning: Standard (EADGBe)

Verse 1:
         B
From the littlest things
        C#
and the pain that it brings
            E
down to the things you miss the most
             D#             F#
but you wont let yourself go
            E
No you wont let yourself

      B            C#
Cause time and time again
             E
You feel the load a little more
           D#             F#
But if you let yourself go
             E
Then we wont hit that road

Verse 2:
Cause I cant see the sky
But its yours to be seen
If you can let yourself go
If you can let yourself


Chorus:
                B
But is this the time
           F#
Is this the place?
                G#m
And "is the the end?"
             E
is all I can say
            B                       F#
I promise I never meant to turn you away
            E                 B
Why did you trust me with you heart?

Verse 2:
So consider the things
and the pain that it brings
Down to the things you miss the most
And if you let yourself go
the next thing you know

Cuz I have seen this guy
He's looking at me
Yeah and he thinks I'm something else
So you can walk yourself home
Yeah you can go

Interlude:
Even though,
you waited,
I know you can begin on your own,
you can begin on your own...

Chorus 2:
But is this the time
Is this the place?
And "is the the end?" is all I can say
I promise I never meant to turn you away
Why did you trust me with you heart?

Outro:
I promise I never meant to turn you away,
Why did you trust me with your heart?
