"The Space Between"
by Dave Matthews' Band
>From the Album - Everyday
Tab By Chad Kalmes - ckalmes@powerweb.net

The basic chords are just E & D for the verses and A E G/Bm D 
for the verses.  Of course, Dave doesn't play just 'regular'
chords...nor does he ever seem to play the chords the same way
every show...but in any event, a couple of rough estimates
are below. There are probably some more Dave-esque chord-forms
that would work better, but you'll get the idea.

Verse Riff I (main riff)

   E E E    D                      E E E    D
e-----------------|             e--0-0-0----0----|
B--5-5-5----3-----|             B--0-0-0----3----|
G--4-4-4----2-----| (or simply) G--1-1-1----2----|
D--6-6-6----4-----|             D--2-2-2----0----|
A--7-7-7----5-----|             A--2-2-2----0----|
E-----------------|             E--0-0-0----0----|

Riff II (played in background throughout chorus and similar parts)

e---9-------9------9h10--|            e---9-------9------------|
B-----10------10---------|            B-----10------10----9----|
G--------9-------9-------| (3X) Then  G--------9-------9-------|
D------------------------|            D------------------------|
A------------------------|            A------------------------|
E------------------------|            E------------------------|

Chorus (with Riff II above)

   A   E   Bm  D

Bridge (Bm A E [Riff IV] X3 Bm A E F)

Riff IV

B---------- 12b--|


You cannot quit me so quickly
There's no hope in you for me
No corner you could sqeeze me
But I got all the time for you, love

A               E                 Bm 
The space between the tears we cry
As the laughter keeps us coming back for more
The space between the wicked lies We tell 
And hope to keep 

Safe from the pain
But will I hold you again
These fickle fuddled words confuse me
Like will it rain today
Waste the hours with talking, talking
These twisted games we're playing

Where stranger lives with warring hearts
What a wild-eyed beast you be
The space between the wicked lies we tell 
And hope to keep 

Safe from the pain
Will I hold you again?
Will I hold 

Look us spinning up in the madness of a rollercoaster
You know you went off like the devil in a church in the middle of a crowded room
All we can do my love is hope we don't take this ship down

The space between
Where your smiling heart
Is where you'll find me if I get to go
The space between
The bullets in a firefight
Is where I'll be hiding waiting for you
The rain that falls, splash in your heart
Tan like sadness down the window into
The space between
Our wicked lies is where we hope to keep safe from pain
Take my hand cuz we're walking out of here
Oh...Right out of here
Love is all we need in
The space between
Whats wrong and right
Is where you'll find me hiding waiting for you
The space between
Your heart and mine is the space we fill with time
The space between
The space between
