The Waiting by Angel Olsen
From the album Half Way Home.
Tabbed by Laxan.
I hastily wrote down the lyrics, so there may be errors.

Worked out the tab using this video of her playing live: 
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2SNOC1FabXw

All open chords except Cm which is played as a barre chord.
Enjoy!

[Verse 1]
Cm    D  G               
Here you come along,
Am                      D              G
I take a breath and remind myself that I too can be strong
Am                      D
Thought I was cool, turns out I'm a fool
Am                      D
Clearly you've proved me wrong
G                        Am          D            G
I didn't know what I was missing when I was alone.

[Chorus]
            Cm      D   G
And now I'm fruitlessly waiting for
Am                      D                     G
Someone not thinking before they start rushing to my door
Am              D
Someone to run not walk
Am              D
Oh, someone to sing not talk
Am              D
Oh, no hesitation at all
G               Am             D       G
Sometimes I need you to be the one to call
Am                         D
Well I'm lost in my thoughts they tumble ahead
Am                  D
Over and over again, yeah it's true

[Verse 2]
            Cm       D                G
Just take a look at what's been done to me
Cm              D                     
I wasted time to ponder
Cm              D
Here I am now, all Alice in Wonder
G               Am                    D
Partly I do this to myself but why can't you see
G               Am                     D
The gesture is small but know that it means the world to me
Am                          D
Oh, forgive me for wanting, I'm only learning life
Am                          D
Forgiven myself and now, there's no returning
G               Am             D
I want to be the one who knows the best way
G               Am             D
I want to be the one who knows the best way
G               Am             D              G                      
I want to be the one who knows the best way to love you

[Chorus]
            Cm  D     G
But now I'm foolishly waiting for
Am                      D                      G
Someone not thinking before they start rushing to my door
Am                D
Someone to run not walk
Am                     D
Oh, someone to sing not talk
Am                   D
Oh, no hesitation at all
G               Am            D         G
Sometimes I need you to be the one to call
G       Am          D         G
I need you to be the one
G       Am          D         G
I need you to be the one
G       Am          D         G
I need you to be the one

[Outro]
G       Am     D      G 
G       Am     D      G
