About this tab version
The piano intro is improvised for the guitar by ear. Chords are more suited as a single guitarist version. Was this info helpful? Yes No
Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
One of the two new songs posted by Nickelback for their new album Feed The Machine.

They change the way they play the e string in the D chord throughout the song, 
most notably in the breakdown/bridge, where there D is played as a Dsus4, however there is a 
single strum guitar playing it as a normal D.

In the verses you can leave the e string open on the D  & G and in the pre-chorus the G & Cadd9, 
which matches the piano better. Have a play through, see which way you prefer to play it.

[Verse 1]
     Em                   
The first words that come out,
            G                         
And I can see this song will be about you,
            D                                
I can't believe that I can breathe without you,
          Am                     
But all I need to do is carry on,
     Em                       
The next line I write down,
              G                                 
And there's a tear that falls between the pages,
               D                                
I know that pain's supposed to heal in stages,
        Am                                                         
But it depends which one it's standing on,

[Pre-chorus]
Em                       G
I write lines down, then rip them up,
     Am             C
Describing love can't be this tough..

[Chorus]
G                              D
I could set this song on fire, send it up in smoke,
Em7                                  Cadd9
I could throw it in the river and watch it sink in slowly,
G                            D
Tie the pages to a plane and send it to the moon,
Em7                                 Cadd9
Play it for the world, but it won't mean much,
           
Unless I sing this song to you....

[Verse 2]
E                            G
I'm dying to show you, This could end happily ever after,
               D
There doesn't ever have to be disaster,
             Am
And all you have to do is sing along,

[Pre-Chorus 2]
Em                       G
I write lines down, then rip them up,
  Am             C
Impossible describing love....

[Chorus]
G                              D
I could set this song on fire, send it up in smoke,
Em7                                  Cadd9
I could throw it in the river and watch it sink in slowly,
G                            D
Tie the pages to a plane and send it to the moon,
Em7                                 Cadd9
Play it for the world, but it won't mean much,
           
Unless I sing this song to you...

G                               D
I could set this song on fire, unless sing this song to you
Em7                            Cadd9
I could set this song on fire...

[Bridge]
G                              Dsus4
Light this old guitar on fire, I'd still hear the notes,
Em7                           Cadd9
Drown the melody in water, I'd still hear its ghost
G                               Dsus4
Sing it with somebody else, but we'd be out of tune,
Em7                             Cadd9
Play it for the world, but it won't mean much...

[Chorus]
G                              D
I could set this song on fire, send it up in smoke,
Em7                                  Cadd9
I could throw it in the river and watch it sink in slowly,
G                            D
Tie the pages to a plane and send it to the moon,
Em7                                 Cadd9
Play it for the world, but it won't mean much,
           
Unless I sing this song to you,

[Outro]
G                              D
I could set this song on fire, Unless I sing this song to you,
Em7                                               Cadd9
I could set this (I could set this), I wanna sing this song to you
G                             D
I could set this song on fire, sing this song to you
Em7                                Cadd9
I could set this, I could set this..

I reckon it's an Am instead of the Aaad9 and in the pre chorus a C instead of the Caad9. Other than that awesome tab. Thanks :)
