About this tab version
Easier chords, and less use of barre chords. Listen to the song, and play along to get the strumming pattern right. If the chords are played correctly to the strumming pattern, it sounds more accurate -- especially when alternating from the D chord to Dsus4 by hammering your pinky finger on the 1st string, 3rd fret. Was this info helpful? Yes No
Strumming Is this strumming pattern correct? Yes No

NOTE: The set tempo of the strumming pattern above may be a little off, I'm not entirely sure what it is :/
The strumming pattern is DDUU-DDUU-DDUU-DDUU, so the Dsus4 chord is played on the last 2 up-strums.

[Intro]
D

[Verse 1]
D                                Dsus4
Ain't it sad when you miss a closing door
D                                 Dsus4 Em7
Turn around, have to wait for something more
G               D     Dsus4
Dum dada dada dadum
D                              Dsus4
Gets me mad that I left it all too late
D                                   Dsus4 Em7
Swept in the breeze, now I watch it drift away
G               D     Dsus4
Dum dada dada dadum


[Pre-Chorus]
           G
So you can find me
                                    D
The tallest building in the tallest city
                                 Em7
And I will build a ladder to the rooftops
                                     A        A7 *
Screaming from my lungs, "I'm sorry, I messed up"


[Chorus]
                     D
So darling won't you stay here?
                A
I promise I can change
                   Bm
And darling if you stay here
                 G
It won't be a mistake
                   D                          A
I know every conversation, it always ends the same
                  Bm
So darling if you stay
                               G
I'll find the words I couldn't say
                    D     Dsus4
Oh, but only if you stay


[Verse 2]
D                                     Dsus4
Truth be told, I'm a mess when you're away
D                                    Dsus4 Em7
And I'm afraid you make me pay for my mis--takes
G               D     Dsus4
Dum dada dada dadum


[Pre-Chorus]
            G
See you can find me
                                    D
The tallest building in the tallest city
                                 Em7
And I will build a ladder to the rooftops
                                     A        A7 *
Screaming from my lungs, "I'm sorry, I messed up"


[Chorus 2]
                     D
So darling won't you stay here?
                A
I promise I can change
                   Bm
And darling if you stay here
                 G
It won't be a mistake
                          D
And we can hide under the duvet
                      A
And time will have to wait
                             Bm
And you can wear my favorite t-shirt
                          G
And we can waste away the days
                D
But only if you stay


[Bridge]
                                                     A
Cutting ties and moments just fade away (only if you stay)
                                                   Bm
Just miles forever we might fade away (only if you stay here)
                                                         G
Still, hope to live for another day (oh baby please just stay here)
                                                        D
But I'll stay asking for you to stay (I'm asking you to stay)
                                                           A
Cutting ties and moments just fade away (I'm asking you to stay)
                                                                Bm
Just miles forever we might fade away (Oh and darling won't you stay?)
                                                              G
Still, hope to live for another day (and tell me that you'll stay)

But I'll stay asking for you to stay


[Outro]
                     D *
So darling won't you stay here?
                  A *
I'm asking you to wait
                   Bm *
And darling if you stay here
                G *
I promise I can change
