This is my first tab. It sounds a little different to the actual version but I played it 
a school concert and everyone loved it so hopefully you will too.

You can play this with the capo in either the 1st or 2nd fret. Whichever you want. The 
stay the same just play them in relation to wherever you’re putting the capo!


Tuning: Standard   (E,A,D,G,B,E)
Capo: 1st or 2nd fret

VERSE:
      A              E
Step one you say we need to talk,

F#m                   E
he walks you say sit down it's just a talk,

A           E                 F#m
Smiles politeley back at you, you stare politely right on through,

A              E
Some sort of a window to your right,

F#m          E
As she goes left and you stay right,

A            E                       F#m          E
Between the lines of fear and blame, you begin to wonder why.

CHORUS:
D                 E               F#m              A 
        E
Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend, Somewhere along in the bitterness,

D                   E                 F#m                
            A
I would have stayed up with you all night, Had I known, How to save a life


TRANSITION: A, E, A, E

VERSE 2:
Let him know that you know best, cause after all you do know best,
Try to slip past his defense, without granting innocence,
Lay down a list of what is wrong, things you told him all along,
And pray to God he hears you, and I pray to God he hears you and...


CHORUS


VERSE 3:
As he begins to raise his voice,
you lower yours and grant him one last choice,
drive until you lose the road, a break with the one you followed,
He will do one of two things, you will admit to everything,
Oh can't say he's just not the same, and you begin to wonder why...

CHORUS x2

TRANSITION:
A       E      A   E               A
................, How to save a life

A       E      A   E               A
................, How to save a life...


CHORUS x2

ENDING:
A      E       A  E               A
................, How to save a life

A      E       A  E               A(let ring)
................, How to save a life.

i'd like to make a comment , i dont think this is that bad - if you play it on an accoustic guitar open with no capo and if you have a deep siging voice - then it sounds gooood :D
