     G   G/F# D   Dsus4 D/F#  C  Cadd9 C6add9    Em   Am

Note: G/F# is a special one, (I kind of made it up ) and is difficult to swap out of this 
song, but you can at the end of the intro.

Note #2: There's an odd delay in D/F#, not a mistake. The chords change where they 
change on the words, finally!

(PLEASE COMMENT IF YOU THINK A CHORD IS WRONG AND I'LL TAKE A LOOK AT IT.
Someone had suggested Cmadd9 but I'm having trouble deciding. 
I may just change Cadd9 to C)

[Intro]
  G            D/F#  Em           Cadd9
  G            D/F#  Em           Cadd9  G/F#  G

[Verse 1]
                                D/F#  Em
           I'm tired of waking up in  tears,
  D/F#  G                          D/F#    Em             Cadd9
           'Cause I can't put to bed these phobias and fears
        G                           D/F#  Em
           I'm new to this grief I can't  explain;
  D/F#  G                       D/F#  Em                  Cadd9
           But I'm no stranger to the heartache and the pain.

[Pre-Chorus]
        D          Em          G             Cadd9
          The fire I began, is burning me   alive
        D            Em             Cadd9             D/F#
          But I know better than to leave and let it die

[Chorus]
                G     D/F#         Em              Cadd9
          I'm a Silhouette, asking every now and then,
                 G    D/F#         Em           Cadd9
          "Is it over yet?  Will I ever feel again?"
                G     D/F#          Em              Cadd9
          I'm a Silhouette, chasing rainbows on my own

[Post-Chorus]
                  Am7           D            G      D    Em      D
          But the more I try to move on, the more I feel alone
               Cadd9               Cmadd9               G
          So I watch the summer stars to lead me home

[Intrumental]
               D/F#  Em           Cadd9
  G            D/F#  Em           Cadd9  G/F#  G

[Verse 2]
                                  D/F#   Em
           I'm sick of the past I can't erase,
  D/F#  G                             D/F#  Em                  Cadd9
           A jumble of footprints and hasty steps I can't retrace,
        G                                   D/F#    Em
           The mountains of things that I still regret,
  D/F#  G                          D/F#     Em
           Is a vile reminder that I would rather just forget
               Cadd9               D
           (No matter where I go)

[Pre-Chrous]
                   Em          G             Cadd9
          The fire I began, is burning me alive
        D            Em              Cadd9             D/F#
          But I know better than to leave and let it die

[Chrous]
                G     D/F#         Em              Cadd9
          I'm a Silhouette, asking every now and then,
                 G    D/F#        Em           Cadd9
          "Is it over yet? Will I ever smile again?"
                G     D/F#         Em              Cadd9
          I'm a Silhouette chasing rainbows on my own

[Post-Chorus]

                  Am7           D            G      D    Em      D
          But the more I try to move on, the more I feel alone
               Cadd9               Cmadd9               G
          So I watch the summer stars to lead me home

[Bridge]
      D/F#  Em  D/F#            G   D/F#  Em              D/F#
                  'Cause I walk alone, no matter where I go
                                G   D/F#  Em              D/F#
                  'Cause I walk alone, no matter where I go
                                G   D/F#  Em              D/F#
                  'Cause I walk alone, no matter where I go

[Chrous]
                G     D/F#         Em              Cadd9
          I'm a Silhouette asking every now and then
                G    D/F#        Em          Cadd9
          Is it over yet? Will I ever love again?
                G     D/F#         Em              Cadd9
          I'm a Silhouette chasing rainbows on my own

[Post-Chorus]
                  Am7           D           G      D      Em    D
          But the more I try to move on the more I feel alone
                  Cadd9              Cmadd9               G
             So I watch the summer stars to lead me home
 D/F# Em Am7      Cadd9              Cmadd9               G
                I watch the summer stars to lead me home

Hi there! I've been using this chord version (printed; it's in my binder of songs) for many months now and I've got to say I've really enjoyed it.

However, I did change the chords (which is why I'm here) to the pre-chorus, so see if you like it better than what you have:

Pre-Chrous

(D)         Em          G             Cadd9
The fire I began, is burning me alive
D/F# Em Cadd9 D/F#
But I know better than to leave and let it die


Wow okay that was such a minor change, but you said post corrections xD. Also, great tab!! Like I said, I play this a lot and I really appreciate it, so, thanks for making it!

Hi there! I have played this song many times too, and now I realized that at the post chorus the Cadd9, according to me, should be Cmadd9.

Please verify my suggestion!
