From 2013's Let It All In album

I've made a tab out, followed by a fake arrangement with the chords only

Standard tuning
Capo 4 to play along to the original

D            xx0232
A            x02220
G            320003
Em           022000             
Em(addmaj7)  021000
Em7          020000


Riff - this pattern is the basis for most of this wonderful tune
It's practically one note per syllable of the lyric so the rhythm isn't too bad
Don't be intimidated!
