Song: Setting Up Sunday
Artist: Meg & Dia
Tabbed by: Chelsea Perez

This is my favorite song by Meg & Dia. 
It sounds a lot better on acoustic.
Listen to the song to figure out the strumming pattern.
It's really straight foward.
:]

Chords and Lyrics

C
I'm setting up Sundays
Em                  Am
Watching the winter grow
F
So oh... no
C
Oh, we're making excuses
Em             Am
For human frailties
Am
It's not about me
F 
Oh, it's never about me

C           Am
Now home is gone
        Em       Am
And I'm lost and alone
C              Am
Now my lover's gone
        Em       Am
And I'm lost and alone
C       Am
Kid I'm right here
C             Am 
And I'm not leaving
C              Em              Am
And there's no way to make you stay
C       Am     C      Am      C       Em                 Am   
But I'm saving all my worries for the day you don't need me

C
Oh, we're selling out Mondays
Em                      Am
Watching those children grow
F
So cold... no
C 
Oh, we're weighing our hands down
Em          Am
Our insecurities
E 
It's not about me
F
Oh, it's never about me

C             Am
Now I cant go on
        Em       Am
And I'm lost and alone
C             Am
Now my lovers gone
        Em       Am
And I'm lost and alone

C       Am
Kid I'm right here
C           Am 
And I'm not leaving
C              Em              Am
And there's no way to make you stay
C       Am     C      Am      C       Em                 Am 
But I'm saving all my worries for the day you don't need me

C       Am
Kid I'm right here
C        Am 
It's now morning
C       Em 
There's no way
       Am
Please stay

C
Setting up Sundays
C
Setting up Sundays
Em                       Am
Watching their hearts in soil
C 
It's not about me
C
Oh, oh, it's never about me
C
Making excuses
Em             Am
For human frailties
C 
It's not about me
Em
It's not about me
Am
It's never about me
C
Hey it's always about me

The Em and E chords sound completely wrong. The C chord is fine, but instead of the E's, the 2nd chord should be a G. I don't know what else should be changed, I just know that the E and Em chords do not fit the song and Dia's key.

okay after playing it again, the Em is fine. I guess it didn't sound right at first because of the E before it.
