Notice:  I have a few covers on my YouTube page under "Ricoa283".  
I put my most recent cover of it with all the lead parts included on there 
if you need a visual.  This tab was made over a year ago so this is without 
any lead parts.  I'm currently in the process of updating this tab so that 
lead parts are included.  Please bare with me as it'll take some time to do so.  

If you have any questions, please contact me via e-mail or YouTube

C                    G
If you can wait 'til I get home

(Intro Riff Again)

(Same as Verse 1)
Hey sweetie, I need you here tonight

Yeah, you want it but I can't help it
I just feel complete when you're by my side
But I know you can't come home 'til they're singin'

F         G           Am
La, la la la, la la la

La, la la la, la la la

Chorus (Repeat)
If you can wait 'til I get home
Then I swear to you that we can make this last
(La la la)
If you can wait 'til I get home
Then I swear come tomorrow, this will all be in our past
It might be for the best

  F                                  C
You know you can't give me what I need

                         Am
And even though you mean so much to me

                        G
I can wait through everything


Is this really happening?

(Palm mute)
   F                        C
I swear I'll never be happy again

                              Am
And don't you dare say we can just be friends

                              G
I'm not some boy that you can sway


We knew it'd happen eventually

This is a much better way to play it I think, considering it actually uses a dropped tuning. Very accurate. Nice work.
