"I wrote this song" by Making April

When I first heard this song, I instantly had to learn it.
I couldn't find any tabs that matched this song to the full depth of how its played.
So I decided to carefully tab this beautiful song.
  
   ~ENJOY!

Capo 3rd Fret, Standard Tuning, 100% accurate version

Intro 
         
E----x-----------3-----------3-----------3-----------|\
A----x-----------3-----------3-----------3-----------| \
D----0-----------0-----------0-----------0-----------|  \
G----2-----------0-----------x-----------x-----------|  {x4
B----2-----------x-----------3-----------3-----------| /
e----0-----------3-----------x-----------x-----------|/

***Verse***

When I first started writing this I swear my intentions were well
and I'd start with maybe a memory or two
but then I saw you for the first time in a while
and awkward thoughts brought awkward smiles
and I left your room for the very last time And i know..
E----x-----------3-----------3-----------3-----------|         / \
A----x-----------3-----------3-----------3-----------|          |
D----0-----------0-----------0-----------0-----------|          |
G----2-----------0-----------x-----------x-----------|  x1 for each sentence
B----2-----------x-----------3-----------3-----------|
e----0-----------3-----------x-----------x-----------|

***Pre-chorus***

that I can't sleep
E----2-----------3-----------3-----------3----|
A----3-----------3-----------3-----------3----|
D----2-----------0-----------0-----------0----|
G----0-----------2-----------x-----------x----|
B----0-----------2-----------3-----------3----|
e----0-----------0-----------x-----------x----|

with all of these things they're running through my head
E----2-----------3-----------3-----------3----|
A----3-----------3-----------3-----------3----|
D----2-----------0-----------0-----------0----|
G----0-----------2-----------x-----------x----|
B----0-----------2-----------3-----------3----|
e----0-----------0-----------x-----------x----|

so I stayed up
E----2-----------3-----------3-----------3----|
A----3-----------3-----------3-----------3----|
D----2-----------0-----------0-----------0----|
G----0-----------2-----------x-----------x----|
B----0-----------2-----------3-----------3----|
e----0-----------0-----------x-----------x----|

And I...
E----2----|
A----3----|
D----2----|
G----0----|
B----0----|
e----0----|

***Chorus***

I wrote this song about you
isn't that cliche' of me to do
E----x-----------3-----------3-----------3-----------|
A----x-----------3-----------3-----------3-----------|
D----0-----------0-----------0-----------0-----------|
G----2-----------0-----------x-----------x-----------|
B----2-----------x-----------3-----------3-----------|
e----0-----------3-----------x-----------x-----------|

but it's nothing for you
the band just needed something more to play
E----x-----------3-----------3-----------3-----------|
A----x-----------3-----------3-----------3-----------|
D----0-----------0-----------0-----------0-----------|
G----2-----------0-----------x-----------x-----------|
B----2-----------x-----------3-----------3-----------|
e----0-----------3-----------x-----------x-----------|

E----x-----------3-----------3-----------3-----------|
A----x-----------3-----------3-----------3-----------|
D----0-----------0-----------0-----------0-----------|
G----2-----------0-----------x-----------x-----------|
B----2-----------x-----------3-----------3-----------|

A----x-----------3-----------3-----------3-----------|
D----0-----------0-----------0-----------0-----------|
G----2-----------0-----------x-----------x-----------|
B----2-----------x-----------3-----------3-----------|

D----0-----------0-----------0-----------0-----------|  \
G----2-----------0-----------x-----------x-----------|  {x2
B----2-----------x-----------3-----------3-----------| /
e----0-----------3-----------x-----------x-----------|/

***Verse***

now I
I've watched these years disperse and still this verse lacks words
E----x-----------3-----------3-----------3-----------|
A----x-----------3-----------3-----------3-----------|
D----0-----------0-----------0-----------0-----------|
G----2-----------0-----------x-----------x-----------|
B----2-----------x-----------3-----------3-----------|
e----0-----------3-----------x-----------x-----------|

and I'm losing all but a memory or two
E----x-----------3-----------3-----------3-----------|
A----x-----------3-----------3-----------3-----------|
D----0-----------0-----------0-----------0-----------|
G----2-----------0-----------x-----------x-----------|
B----2-----------x-----------3-----------3-----------|
e----0-----------3-----------x-----------x-----------|

cause now I see you and I can't hold back a smile
your fashion's long gone out of style
E----x-----------3-----------3-----------3-----------|
A----x-----------3-----------3-----------3-----------|
D----0-----------0-----------0-----------0-----------|
G----2-----------0-----------x-----------x-----------|
B----2-----------x-----------3-----------3-----------|
e----0-----------3-----------x-----------x-----------|

and there's nothing left to impress me anymore
cause I know
E----x-----------3-----------3-----------3-----------|
A----x-----------3-----------3-----------3-----------|
D----0-----------0-----------0-----------0-----------|
G----2-----------0-----------x-----------x-----------|
B----2-----------x-----------3-----------3-----------|
e----0-----------3-----------x-----------x-----------|

that I can't see
E----2-----------3-----------3-----------3----|
A----3-----------3-----------3-----------3----|
D----2-----------0-----------0-----------0----|
G----0-----------2-----------x-----------x----|
B----0-----------2-----------3-----------3----|
e----0-----------0-----------x-----------x----|

that same girl that I had known so long ago
E----2-----------3-----------3-----------3----|
A----3-----------3-----------3-----------3----|
D----2-----------0-----------0-----------0----|
G----0-----------2-----------x-----------x----|
B----0-----------2-----------3-----------3----|
e----0-----------0-----------x-----------x----|

so I gave up
E----2-----------3-----------3-----------3----|
A----3-----------3-----------3-----------3----|
D----2-----------0-----------0-----------0----|
G----0-----------2-----------x-----------x----|
B----0-----------2-----------3-----------3----|
e----0-----------0-----------x-----------x----|

And I...

A----3----|
D----2----|
G----0----|
B----0----|
e----0----|
