Tab: Soldier On
Artist: The Temper Trap
Album: Conditions
Tabbed By: Laura Hadfield

This is my first tab, [how many times do you hear that], but i'm not sure if it is a two 
or one. I tabbed it for two, and not entirely accurately but theres nothing else on 
so you'll just have to cope :). I love Temper and can't wait for them to come home to Australia.

This goes on for the whole of "who wants to know, all that is gold is rusting...."

VARITION 1: (In between "us moving..." and "...waves crash around"

Then it goes back to the original until the electric guitars come in which I don't have 
enough ears to work out.

Sorry if there's mistakes, please tell me or make a new version or whatever, its such a 
song & I'd be glad for any tab by The Temper Trap they are amazing.

Listen to the Song to hear where all the parts come in.

The words are as follows:

who wants to know
all that is gold is rusting
no one will know
when seasons cease to change and...
how far we've gone
how far we're going
it's the here and the now
and the love for the sound
of the moments that keep us moving

waves crash along
the battered, lonley lighthouse
tommorrow she's gone
and if not, someday somehow
are these hands a waste
well this side of mortality is scaring me to death
to death

don't think about it at all
just keep your head low
and don't think about it at all

soldier on, soldier on
keep your heart close to the ground
soldier on, soldier on, keep your heart
close to the ground

don't think about it at all
just keep your head low
don't think about it at all.

(This is where my tab ends but it continues)

yeah, will you take me tonight
yeah, will you take me tonight
yeah, will you take me tonight
ooooh...tonight

soldier on
soldier on
keep your heart
close...to the ground.
