"Happy Birthday To Me (Feb. 15)"

Standard Tuning

D  - XX0323
Em - 022000
G  - 320033
A  - X02220

D Em G
D Em G

D               Em
All eyes on the calendar
Another year I claim of total indifference
D                Em
To here the days pile up
With decisions to be made, I'm sure all of them were wrong
  D              Em
Into this song I send myself
And with these drinks I plan to collapse
       D                     Em
And forget this wasted year, these wasted years
Devoted friends, they disappear

   A                    G              A
And I'm sorry about the phone call and needing you
Some decisions you don't make
A                   G                 A
  I guess it's like breathing and not wanting to
There are some things you can't fake 

D Em G
D Em G

D                  Em
 I guess that it's typical
To cling to memories you'll never get back again
D                        Em
 And to sort through old photographs
Of a summer long ago or a friend that you used to know
    D               Em
And there below his frozen face
You wrote the name and that ancient date, that ancient date
        D                       Em
And you can't believe that he's really gone
When all that's left is a fucking song

    A                   G              A 
And I'm sorry about the phone call and waking you
I know that it's late
    A             G                        A
But thank you for talking because I needed to
Some things just can't wait

D Em G (Yeah, some things just can't wait) 

End on G

At last someones tabbed this! However I don't think it's one hundred percent right, I'm sure the second chord is an A but I may be wrong. Thanks for posting anyway, I'l use this as backbone for figuring the rest out. Then again it may actually be correct and I'm just rambling for no reason.

Yeah, the only wrong bit, I think, is the verse progression. Instead of D Em G i play D(hammering on high G) A Em G.

hey this is just a really little thing... you have the D chord written as XX0323 but it's actually XX0232. just a typo i'm sure, awesome job.
