This is my first attempt at posting but I could not get the sound for this song. The
tabs were just not sounding the same. So I listened to the song over and used the other
as a guide took parts of them and changed to what I thought sounded more like the song I 
watched video over and over no Capo so the tuning down fit better. This tab was posted
all I changed was the C to Cadd9 and tune down. Thank you For the tab it was very helpful.

Over My Head (Cable Car) - The Fray - "How to Save a Life"

IMPORTANT-TUNE DOWN 1/2 STEP to D#-G#-C#-F#-A#-D#

Please use Cadd9 on all C chords when I tried to type it in it was moving other chords
of place.

Verse 1:

   Cadd9
I never knew
    Em              G             Cadd9
I never knew that everything was falling through
        Em        G               Cadd9
That everyone I knew was waiting on a queue
    Em       G               Am   Em        D
To turn and run when all I needed was the truth
                     Cadd9
But that's how it's got to be
       Em              G               Cadd9
It's coming down to nothing more than apathy
      Em             G              Cadd9
I'd rather run the other way than stay and see
      Em        G           Am      Em        D
The smoke and who's still standing when it clears


Chorus:

C    G    Em        G
Everyone knows I'm in
C        G     Em      D
Over my head, over my head
       C    G              Em     G
With eight seconds left in overtime
      Am       G          Em   D    C
She's on your mind, she's on your mind

Em  G  C
Em  G


Verse 2:

         C
Let's rearrange
   Em              G                Cadd9
I wish you were a stranger I could disengage
    Em           G              Cadd9
To say that we agree and then never change
    Em   G            Am        Em    D
Soften a bit until we all just get along
            Cadd9
But that's disregard
     Em           G              Cadd9
You find another friend and you discard
        Em          G          Cadd9
As you lose the argument in a cable car
     Em   G            Am    Em     D
Hanging above as the canyon comes between


Chorus:

C    G    Em        G
Everyone knows I'm in
C        G     Em      D
Over my head, over my head
       C    G              Em     G
With eight seconds left in overtime
      Am       G          Em   D    C
She's on your mind, she's on your mind


Bridge:
       C          Em       G           C
And suddenly I become a part of your past
       Em          G              C
I'm becoming the part that don't last
      Em    G            Am
I'm losing you and its effortless


Verse 3:

C                        Em            G
Without a sound we lose sight of the ground
         C
In the throw around
         Em              G         C
Never thought that you wanted to bring it down
        Em         G            Am
I won't let it go down till we torch it ourselves


Bridge 2:

G         G/F#
Everyone knows I'm in
Em7             C
Over my head, over my head
       C    G              Em   G
With eight seconds left in overtime
      Am       G          Em  D    C      Em
She's on your mind, she's on your mind...
G          C    Em         G       C
Everyone knows...   she's on your mind...
Em                  G       C
Everyone knows I'm in over my head
Em              G
My head   I'm over my...


Chorus:

C    G    Em        G
Everyone knows I'm in
C        G     Em      D
Over my head, over my head
       C    G              Em     G
With eight seconds left in overtime
      Am       G          Em   D    C
She's on your mind, she's on your mind

Em   G    C   4X

End on C.
