Artist: Lifehouse
Song: Somewhere Only We Know [Keane Cover]
From their EP 'Broken' (2008)
Tab by José Montenegro
Tuning: Standard (EADGBe)
Capo: 1st Fret

Note: I also did a Guitar Pro version in the right tuning 1/2 step down, you may want to check it,
I tabbed this on with capo because at the time I didn't want to retune my guitar everytime,
here's the GP

    G  G/F# Am Dsus D   Em  Bm  C
e|--3---3---0---3---2---0---2---0--|
B|--0---0---1---3---3---0---3---1--|

*Note: the 'x' means mute note,
So in G/F# just press with you index finger the 6th string in 2nd fret,
and mute the 5th string
For the Dsus-D, just do a regular D [--0232] and press the 1st string with your pinky
in 3rd fret, then lift it up for a standard D

[Intro]
G - G/F# - Am - Dsus-D [x2]

[Verse]
G              G/F#
I walked across - an empty land
Am                          Dsus       D
I knew the pathway like the back of my hand
G               G/F#
I felt the earth - beneath my feet
Am                      Dsus         D
Sat by the river and it made me complete

Em               Bm
Oh simple thing! Where have you gone?
C                                       D
I'm getting old and I need something to rely on
Em             Bm
So tell me when you're gonna let me in
C                                           D
I'm getting tired and I need somewhere to begin

G            G/F#
I came across - a fallen tree
Am                        Dsus       D
I felt the branches of it looking at me
G                G/F#
Is this the place - we used to love?
Am                               Dsus     D
Is this the place that I've been dreaming of…?

Em               Bm
Oh simple thing! Where have you gone?
C                                       D
I'm getting old and I need something to rely on
Em             Bm
So tell me when you're gonna let me in
C                                           D
I'm getting tired and I need somewhere to begin

[Chorus]
Am                   G                D
   And if you have a minute why don't we go…
Am               G              D
   Talk about it somewhere only we know?
Am                   G           D
   This could be the end of everything
C                   D              G
So why don't we go, somewhere only we know?

[Bridge]
C - D - C                      D
        Somewhere only we know

Em               Bm
Oh simple thing! Where have you gone?
C                                       D
I'm getting old and I need something to rely on
Em             Bm
So tell me when you're gonna let me in
C                                           D
I'm getting tired and I need somewhere to begin

[Chorus]
Am                   G                D
   And if you have a minute why don't we go…
Am               G              D
   Talk about it somewhere only we know?
Am                   G           D
   This could be the end of everything
C                                D
So why don't we go, so why don't we go…?

Am - G - D [x2]

Am                   G      D
  This could be the end of everything
C
So why don't we go
D                      C
Somewhere only we know
D                      C
Somewhere only we know
D              C       G
Somewhere only we know

Enjoy, it's a really nice song, this version is in Ab, Keane plays it in A,
so for their version is capo 2.
This is the way I play it, but maybe Jason plays it without capo
1/2 step down (he usually does), you can try it, just change the chords:

              EADGBe
   G = A     [-02220]
G/F# = Amaj7 [-02120]
  Am = Bm    [-24432]
Dsus = Esus  [022200]
   D = E     [022100]
  Em = F#m   [244222]
  Bm = C#m   [-46654]
   C = D     [--0232]

Well, this what I got for Keane and Lifehouse, I hope this was be helpful to you.
