Amazing song here.
The tuning is a whole step down.
I feel like this tab is pretty darn accurate, hope it helps!

Intro - Am  C  F  (x4)

Verse 1

Am                      C                         F
   Pull it out, turn it up, what's your favorite song?
Am                          C                        F
   That's mine, I've been crying to it since I was young
Am                              C                        F
   I know there's someone out there feeling just like I feel
                              G
   I know they're waiting up, I know they're waiting to heal
Am                            C
   And I've been holding my breath
                          F
   Are you holding your breath
    G                            C     G
   For too many years to count?
                       Am        F
   Too many years to count


Chorus

Am          C     F        G
   And we waited for the sirens that never come
Am         C                 F
   And we only write by the moon
     G
   Every word handwritten
Am         C                 F
   And to ease the loss of youth
            G                      Am
   And how many years I've missed you
     C              F
   Pages plead forgiveness
     G
   Every word handwritten 
 

Am   C   F  (x2)


Verse 2 

Am                    C                      F
   Let it out, let me in, take a hold of my hand
Am                               C                           F
   There's nothing like another soul that's been cut up the same
Am                            C                    F
   And did you want to drive without a word in between?
              G                              Am
   I can understand, you need a minute to breathe
                       C          F         G      C              
   And to sew up the seams after all this defeat
G                   Am      F
   All this defeat


Chorus

Am          C     F        G
   And we waited for the sirens that never come
Am         C                 F
   And we only write by the moon
     G
   Every word handwritten
Am         C                 F
   And to ease the loss of youth
            G                      Am
   And how many years I've missed you
     C              F
   Pages plead forgiveness
     G
   Every word handwritten 


Bridge/Outro - C / Am / G / F  (x2)

C               Am        G            F
   Here in the dark, I cherish the moonlight
C          Am            G             F             C
   I'm in love with the way you're in love with the night
            Am           G       F       C    Am    G    F
   And it travels from heart to limb to pen

C                 G                         Am
   And we waited for the sirens that never come
                             F
   And we only write by the moon

   Every word handwritten (starting here, simply repeat C/G/Am/F )
   Every word handwritten

   And with this pen, I thee wed
   From my heart to your distress

                   C <----------- Ending on a final strum of C
   Every word handwritten

Thanks Ben! I love this freakin' song. Like you stated it's tuned 1 step down. Though chord placements are not 100% your contribution definitely allowed me to easily figure it out. For fun you should tag in and out of this song and 59 Sound. It sounds sweet and it's Easy Like Sunday Morning. :) Thanks again Ben!

the bridge is Am F C G and you got too many Gs in the verses. Good effort tho. Got my lazy ass from figuring out the whole thing myself.

I want to post or [tab]
