Song: Iris
Artist: The Goo Goo Dolls
Album: Dizzy Up the Girl
Tabbed by: Tyler H.

Tuning:
 D
 D (Tune it up to D)
 D (Tune this one down)
 D
 D (Tune this one down also)
 B (Yeah, I know it's probably all boingy but this is how it goes)

For my acoustic I usually tab it lower to CCCCCA and it sounds pretty much the 
same. Ok, All those other tabs just sicken me. They are't even close at all and they 
suck completly so I sat down and wrote the correct tab for you. Its a good song and 
I hope you enjoy it. Guys,... girls like this song, I know my woman does.

Lyrics:

And I'd give up forever to touch you
'Cause I know that you feel me somehow
You're the closest to heaven that I'll ever be,
And I dont wanna go home right now

And all I can taste is this moment
And all I can breathe is your life
When sooner or later it's over
I just don't wanna miss you tonight

  And I don't want the world to see me
  'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
  When everything's made to be broken
  I just want you to know who I am

And you can't fight the tears that ain't comin'
Or the moment of truth in your lies
When everything feels like the movies
Yeah you bleed just to know you're alive

  And I don't want the world to see me
  'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
  When everything's made to be broken
  I just want you to know who I am

(Very long solo..)

  And I don't want the world to see me
  'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
  When everything's made to be broken
  I just want you to know who I am

  And I don't want the world to see me
  'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
  When everything's made to be broken
  I just want you to know who I am
  I just want you to know who I am
 I just want you to know who I am
I just want you to know who I am

Damn this took a long time.... Like two hours but it's a good song and I thought 
I'd share the tab with you. The other ones are wrong and this is the right version. 
There is another guitar-like instrument that I would like someone to tab if you would...

this has to be one of the worst tabs i have seen for Iris in a long long time. how on earth did u come up with some thing like this.../??? I have a question to ask why make the A string ( tuned down to a D in your tab) dead in the chorus when the rest of strings are tuned to a D anyway, it makes no sense at all cos the rest of them will be playing the same note anyway.....
