How Are You True
Tell Me I'm Pretty

I don't know the exact names of certain chords for this song so I have labeled them as 1, 2, and 3
If anyone knows the names of these chords or has a substitution, I would love to receive any suggestions.

    1(Em7)  2(F#7) 3(Edim7)

[Verse 1]

Bm7/D             Em7
Wake up, say a little prayer
  Em              F#7
Out of bed to the bathroom where
  Edim7                       Bm7/D
I take a look at myself and I stop and stare
   Em7                   Em
And I wonder who is this standing here

  Bm                     F#        E
And I try to find the will to carry on
  Bm               F#             E
Wonder how much longer I can carry on
  A                    Bm       G          A
Cause these days they take so long, yes they do


 D    G          
Hey, how are you true?
       F#                  Bm       A
The light will guide you home, yes it will
 D    G           
Hey, how are you true?
              F#                        Bm                  
Well there's one thing that you should know
Yes you should
          Bm             A             E
You need love, you need love, you need love
         Bm          A           E
You need la la la la la la la la love

[Verse 2]

Bm                          F#
All your days spend countin' numbers
'Til one day you'll find, day you'll find
       F#              Bm
That life has passed you by
Bm                                          E
And in the quiet still of silence try to hide your eyes
F#             Bm       A
Oh no so don't cry, oh no


 D     G
Hey, how are you true?
      F#                   Bm         A
The light will guide you home, yes it will
D                             G
Oh the years, they turn so fast
                         F#                              Bm
Soon the present will be past and you'll look back and laugh
Yes you will

[Verse 3]

 Bm                F#       G                  F#
Well I can still remember, yes I was a young man too
 Bm               F#            G               F#
Alone, but not forgotten and the candle shining through
 Bm                         F#                G            F#
Still all these words I've spoken don't mean anything at all
        Bm             A           E
Without love, without love, without love
        Bm           A          E
Without la la la la la la la la love


D    G   F#   Bm      A        
Do, do, do, do, oh yeah
D    G   F#   Bm       A
Do, do, do, do, oh yeah

[Verse 4]

    Bm          F#          G                 F#
I remember clearly we were both there on the airplane
 Bm               F#           G              F#
Told me all your secrets, oh I never saw it coming
    Bm                    F#
I thought that you were joking
            G             F#
You were actually quite serious

Hey thanks for the tab!

Just some suggestions I think the D in the chorus is actually a D7, and I'm not entirely sure but I think the F# is an F#7 but I could be wrong.

1 is Em7, 2 is F#7/E and 3 is Edim7, but the chords are not quite right for my ear. Will come up with a better version when I have the time
