Song: Fader
Artist: The Temper Trap
Tabbed by: Lee Pethers (leepethers@googlemail.com)

Slight modification to the other tab I saw. Theres an important Bm chord in this song, 
theres actually 5 chords and not 4. I've also thrown in a tab for the solo which is 
accurate I think.

A: x02220
D: xx0323
G: 320033
Em: 022022
Bm: x24432

A      Bm
I'm in transit
	 G                Em
floating stranded on this boat
       A               Bm
and I pledge myself allegiance
     G                     D
to a better night sleep at home
        A                        Bm
and the sweet sweet sun's comin’ down hard
                 G
the sun's comin’ down hard
             Em
it burns the bones
   A
so hold a hand for cover
 Bm
hold a hand for cover
 G
hold a hand for cover from harm


A        Bm        G
woooohoo wooooohoo woooohoo hoo
                    A
talk don't change a thing

A        Bm        G
woooohoo wooooohoo woooohoo hoo
                A
oh, it's fading fader

[repeat for the next part]

woo oo oo...
words don't sink they swims
oh, it's fading fader


A          Bm
bless this mess
	     G
we tried our best
		       Em
that's all that we can do
          A
while the angels walk
         Bm
with the lonely ones
       G		   D
in the cold rain to rescue you
         A                    Bm
and this fable world's comin’ down hard
                  G
the wall's comin’ down hard
           Em
on all our homes
   A
so hold a hand for cover
Bm
hold a hand for cover
G
hold a hand for cover from harm


[repeat chorus with same chords as before]

Pretty good tab, though I feel like the chorus sounds better like this:

D Bm G
woooohoo wooooohoo woooohoo hoo
A D
talk don't change a thing

hmm not sure why the spacing got messed up on my post. the chords should be spaced out with their corresponding lyrics

I want to post or [tab]
