                             LIGHTS OFF - Jay Sean
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
First Submitted: April 24th 2010
Last Updated: July 30th 2010

Tabbed by: Wayne S
Tuning: Standard EADGBE

Capo: 3

Chords:
Bm: 224432
G: 320033 or 355433 - I feel 355433 may be easier to switch to after Bm
D: x00233 or 557775
A: 002220 or 577655

No capo? Chords:
Bm -> Dm: 557765 or 000231. 557765 preferred.
G -> Bb: 688766 or 113331 - Easier to transition from Dm to 688766.
D -> F: 133211 or 8-8-10-10-10-8
A -> C: 032010 or 335553 or 8-10-9-9-8-8

[1], [2], [3], [4] are cues for the vocals. They should line up with the string+fret to play.
For example, for [1], it lines up with "2", so for the first line of the first verse,
play the A string (5th string) on 2nd fret, you sing "losing" (chorus) at the same time.

You can play the verses by finger-picking too, but you wouldn't want to play the whole song like
that, would you? It would sound too monotonous! Hence I made the verses/bridges chords, and the
finger-picking (you can actually hear that in the song).

If you want to play the verses by picking, then
Bm -> [1]
G -> [2]
D -> [3]
A -> [4]
Use the same cues as you use for the chorus.

[Intro]:

e|---------5-----2-----------2-----0---------0---------------0---------------|

[Alternate Intro] - I don't think this is actually easier, but it makes use of the bar 
So for anyone that's curious..:

[Verse 1]:

             Bm                                 G
I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired it's you that I'm missing it's
        D                               A
like my brain is wired up and there's a glitch in my system
Bm                              G
  You're like a drug and now my blood won't stop itching
       D                                 A
I'm in critical condition someone let my out of this prison

[Pre-Chorus]:

             Bm                           G
It's like my mind is playing tricks on me lately
           D                            A
I could've sworn that you were still my baby
         Bm                G                      D
I'm on a merry-go-round, going around, driving me crazy
A
That's why it feels like

  [1]                [2]             [3]             [4]

[1]           [2]            [3]                 [4]
Losing you is like somebody, just turned all the lights off
[1]             [2]      [3]                  [4]
Won't somebody, anybody, please just turn the lights on?
         [1]      [2]           [3]               [4]
I won't take, one step, I can't see what's coming next
[1]           [2]            [3]                 [4]
Losing you is like somebody, just turned all the lights off
             [1]             [2]
Can't see at all (at all, at all, at all)
             [3]     [4]
Can't see at all (oh no)
             [1]                      [2]            [3]                 [4]
Can't see at all (at all), cause it's like somebody, just turned all the lights off

[Verse 2]:

        Bm                          G
I don't understand how one minute I just had it all
            D                                   A
Now I can't reach you cos I'm tied up with this straight jacket on
        Bm
I can't breathe (breathe, breathe, breathe, breathe, breathe)
        A
I can't see (see, see, see, see, see, see, see)

[Repeat Pre-Chorus]

[Repeat Chorus]


[Bridge]:

G              D              Bm
Used to see my world in color girl
                      A                    G
When you left me it's like my world turned grey
               D           Bm
Turn my winter into summer girl
                   A                G
why won't you help me turn night to day
                     D                       Bm
I can't eat, I can't sleep, I can't think at all
                       A                 G
Honestly it feels like I ain't living no more
             D                  A (strum once)
Can't say no more, can't see no more

Baby that's why it feels like


[Repeat Chorus]
