Verse 1
I’ve seen this one before, the girl she gets away
Everybody knows it but no one tries to stop it
Cause she barely even knows him but if she could see inside
Everything is quiet as she waits to tell him who she is

         Is this all we get?  To be ab--solute

Quiet but I’m sure there is something here

It’s a kiss sits upon on her lips that waits for planes and battle ships
She wants to be a dancer and he has got a picture
On his wall and it’s a sailor in a new port every night
Yet man was born to trouble like sparks fly upwards innocent

Sounds good, but is there really a need for the capo?

i don't know -- i just know that is how he plays it live.

whether it's needed or not, all i try to do with my tabs is get them as close as possible to how the actual artist plays them.

check out some youtube videos -- you'll see he uses one on the 2nd fret.

theres a melody in the post bridge that kinda sounds like:

e|----------------------8-8-------8-8-9-------=--|
B|--9-9-------9-9----------11-11-----------------|
G|-----10-10-----10-10---------------------------|
D|-----------------------------------------------|
A|-----------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------|

i'm pretty sure its something like that. but theres something else
going on there so i'm not totally sure
