Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
This is my first tab and it's not perfect, but it sounds pretty close to me.
If you play it while listening to the song it sounds pretty much the same
but there are some parts I'm not sure about.
It's one of my favorite songs by David Archuleta and I hope you have fun
playing it!

Notes: I don't know what the G* chord is called so I just called it G*,
I don't know if that is right though. 
Also, the chords change pretty fast so if you're having trouble it's
easier to play the whole song with just quick down strums instead of with 
a strumming pattern. :)

Intro: Em7 Cadd9 G* Em7 Cadd9 G Em7 Cadd9 G*

Em7             Cadd9  G*
You and me, all alone girl 
Em7                        Cadd9     G
What’s going on? Won’t you tell me what’s wrong? 
Em7                               Cadd9     G*
It’s like you’re locked up in your own world 
Em7       Cadd9     D/F#
Oh, with nothin’ to say 

Em7                           Cadd9     G*
You keep me guessing, but it’s in your eyes 
Em7                       Cadd9     G   
He made you promises, but gave you lies 
Em7                                Cadd9    G*
You’re shutting down because you’re so sure 
Em7           Cadd9    D/F#
That I’ll be another mistake 

Chorus:
Em7            Cadd9         G*
I know that he left you in pieces 
Em7             Cadd9 G       Em7
You know that I won’t be that way 
              Cadd9             G* 
I’m not gonna treat you like he did 
Em7  Cadd9       D/F#
Oh, whatever it takes 
Em7         Cadd9        G*
You think history is repeated 
Em7          Cadd9  G   Em7
You keep on pushing me away    
        Cadd9      G*    Em7
Oh, but nothing’s gonna change 
D/F#              Em7    Cadd9   G*
Waiting for yesterday     ay     ay
Em7    Cadd9   G
Day     ay     ay 
Em7    Cadd9   G*
Day     ay     ay

Em7                Cadd9  G* 
Is it worth it any longer? 
Em7           Cadd9   G
So scared of falling again 
Em7                       Cadd9    G*
But yesterday can make it stronger
Em7           Cadd9  D/F#
So why do you feel alone? 
Em7                       Cadd9      G
You know I love you better than he ever did 
Em7               Cadd9          G*
And this could be, all you ever needed 
Em7                   Cadd9    G
Hold onto me and just remember 
Em7     Cadd9     D/F#
Oh, no, never let go 

Chorus:
Em7            Cadd9         G*
I know that he left you in pieces 
Em7             Cadd9 G       Em7
You know that I won’t be that way 
              Cadd9             G* 
I’m not gonna treat you like he did 
Em7  Cadd9       D/F#
Oh, whatever it takes 
Em7         Cadd9        G*
You think history is repeated 
Em7          Cadd9  G   Em7
You keep on pushing me away    
        Cadd9      G*    Em7
Oh, but nothing’s gonna change 
D/F#              Em7    
Waiting for yesterday ay ay

Em7     Cadd9   G*   Em7
I’m the one for you tonight,

You know that I won’t be that way 
              Cadd9             G* 
I’m not gonna treat you like he did 
Em7  Cadd9       D/F#
Oh, whatever it takes 
Em7         Cadd9        G*
You think history is repeated 
Em7          Cadd9  G   Em7
You keep on pushing me away    
        Cadd9      G*    Em7
Oh, but nothing’s gonna change 
D/F#              Em7    
Waiting for yesterday
