[Intro]
G Em x4

[Verse]
G        Em                                  G      Em
I can understand how when the edges are rough
G       Em                                   G      Em
And they cut you like the tiniest slivers of glass
         C         Am
And you feel too much
               C        Am                   G Em      G Em
And you don't know how long you're gonna last

[Chorus]
                   D               C         G
But everyone you know is tryin' to smooth it over
C              G                 D
Find a way to make the hurt go away
                  D                  C       G
But everyone you know is trying to smooth it over
C                      G           D
Like you're trying to scream underwater
C                             G       D    C
But I won't let you make the great escape
C                                  G        D      C
I'm never gonna watch you checkin out of this place
C
I'm not gonna lose you
             G           D
Cause the passion and the pain
            G        D        C
Are gonna keep you alive someday
C (fade, soft)               G  Em     G   Em
Gonna keep you alive someday

[Verse]
G                   Em                  G           Em
I feel like I could wave my fist in front of your face
         G           Em          G      Em
And you wouldn't flinch or even feel a thing
                              C        Am
And you've retreated to your silent corner
           C       Am                     G   Em    G   Em
Like you decided the fight was over for ya
               D                 C        G
Everyone you know is trying to smooth it over
C                      G         D
Find a way to make the hurt go away

[Chorus]
              D                C        G
Everyone you know, is tryin' smooth it over
C                G                     D
Everyone needs a floor they can fall through
C                        G   D     C
I won't let you make the great escape,
C                                 G       D      C
I'm never gonna watch you checkin out of this place
C
I'm not gonna lose you
           G                D
Cause the passion and the pain
              G      D          C
Are gonna keep you alive someday
C (build up)                                     G Em x 4
They're gonna keep you alive someday..m.m.m.m.mmmm

[Verse]
G        Em                            G       Em
Oh, terrified of the dark but not if you go with me
        G  Em                  G         Em
And I don't need a pill to make me numb
    C                      Am
And I wrote the book on runnin'
            C         Am                     G    Em  G Em
But that chapter of my life will soon be done

[Chorus]
D                    C G     D
I'm the king of the great escape
D                                 C      G      D
You're not gonna watch me checkin out of this place
D
You're not gonna lose me
             C        G
Cause the passion and pain
           C       G       D
Are gonna keep us alive someday
D (fade)
Yeah the passion and the pain
C (soft fade)                  G  Em     G   Em
Are gonna keep us alive someday,
G       Em    G (fade out)
someday

Nice tab. I would say it's 100% right, except it's capo on 3 I'm pretty sure

kamdude - thanks for the feedback! ya, sorry about the capo position. My guitars are usually swinging from E to Eb to D tuning and I never know where A-440 is... I need a tuner :-)
