Seven Years [Acoustic] - Saosin

(Lyrics at bottom)

Version three of this tab (the one rated five stars) sounds pretty spot on, but if you 
listen to the song, the higher notes are played on a higher string, not on the second 
bass string. This version is correct, play along while listening to the song and you'll 
see :)

This is my first tab, so not too harsh if the format seems whack!


Tuning is Drop D

(Use your pointer finger to hold down the first fret on B string and your pinky to hold 
down the third fret on the higher D string)


Play three times

This is the little picking part after "I would find a way without you" at 0:47
It's a little tricky at first to hear, but it's good enough for me

Well, that's my take, and it sounds good to me, almost perfect except maybe for the 
fast picking part. Enjoy! Comments/criticism welcome! 



Lyrics:

Taking on seven years 
The holy ghost had left alone 
Test my arms, kick like crazy 
And I've been trying way too long 
Only push the way off to fight you 
And I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm not sure 
Getting off my chest 
The story ends 
I would find a way without you 
I would find a way without you 
That mistake was gold
I know that without you 
It's something that I could never do 
That was right 
Staple the eyes and 
Seven dates for me to sell machines 
And tear on 
Seven years you assured me 
That I'd be fine if I complied 
Only push the way off to fight you 
And I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm not sure 
Getting off my chest 
The story ends 
Without you 
I would find a way without you 
That mistake was gold
I know that without you 
It's something that I could never ever ever ever... 
That was right 
Staple the eyes and 
Seven dates for me to sell machines 
And tear on 

Don't treat me I'm to blame 
Dont treat me like I ever accused you 
Don't treat me I'm to blame 
Dont treat me like I ever accused you 
Don't treat me I'm to blame 
Dont treat me like I ever accused you 
Don't treat me I'm to blame 
Dont treat me like I ever accused you
