Tabbed by: djtdub105

Hey this is my first fully tabbed song, i hope its alrite.  it sounds pretty close to 
cd, but the only part im not sure about is the bridge. if you're just playing solo, use 
2 for a fuller sound.  feel free to post corrections or better versions.  be sure
to check out gavin degraw if your haven't already, he's an amazing singer/songwriter.

great tab but the bm5 you have for the verse is just called a b5

I would argue that the bridge part two is wrong.

The chords are in my opinion (with capo on first fret):
B5, A5, E7/G# x3
D5, E5
