                      LIKE A KNIFE - Secondhand Serenade
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Krista
Email: leavethepieces@gmail.com

Tuning: Capo on 1st

   D   A   Bm  G  or like this:
e|-2---0---2---3-|  |-0---0---0---0-| so it's actually
B|-3---2---3---3-|  |-3---3---3---3-| Dsus2 and Asus4
G|-2---2---4---0-|  |-2---2---4---0-|
D|-0---2---4---0-|  |-0---2---4---0-|
A|-x---0---2---2-|  |-x---0---2---2-|
E|-x---x---2---3-|  |-x---x---x---3-|

*Note: If you play the chords the second way,
and downtune your high E string to a D,
it sounds closer to the actual recording.
I'm not sure how he actually plays it.*


D A Bm G


  Bm                               G
I dream a lot, I know you say I've got to get away.
     D                                     A
"The world is not yours for the taking" is all you ever say.
  Bm                                 G
I know I'm not the best for you, but promise that you'll stay.
            D
'Cause if I watch you go, you'll see me wasting,
       A
You'll see me wasted away


         D                          A
'Cause today, you walked out of my life
         Bm                            G
'Cause today, your words felt like a knife
                     Bm G D A
I'm not living this life.


    Bm                               G
Goodbyes are meant for lonely people standing in the rain
       D                             A
And no matter where I go it's always pouring all the same.
      Bm                                    G
These streets are filled with memories both perfect and in pain
          D                                A
And all I wanna do is love you but I'm the only one to blame.


         D                          A
'Cause today, you walked out of my life
         Bm                            G
'Cause today, your words felt like a knife
I'm not living this life.


            A
But what do I know, if you're leaving
All you did was stop the bleeding.
          Bm
But these scars will stay forever,
These scars will stay forever
          A
And these words have no meaning
If we cannot find the feeling
        G
That we held on to together
Try your hardest to remember


D
Stay with me,
   A
Or watch me bleed,
  Bm                 G
I need you just to breathe.


         D                          A      
'Cause today, you walked out of my life
(stay with me, or watch me bleed)
         Bm                          G
'Cause today, your words felt like a knife
(i need you just to breathe.)
                     D (D A Bm G D)
I'm not living this life.

Good work. Although, this is not how he plays it. I've tabbed a lot of his songs accurately with the approval of Secondhand Serenade himself. He uses a string change, I'm working on this tab right now.
