The Good Life is the side project of Tim Kasher from Cursive. I've had trouble finding
tabs for The Good Life, so I decided to try my hand at it. I've only been playing guita
 a year or so, so my ear may be off, feel free to correct me.

Chords (as far as I know, I wasn't sure of the notation for some so I just added the
-mod for "modified")
A             002220
Asus          002230
Bm-mod        224422
Bm            224432
G-mod          320030 
G             320033
Dsus          000233
D             000232
D-mod         000230

When A is played, it is strummed/picked about 3 times on A then once on Asus then again on A.

When Bm is played, it is strummed/picked about 3 times on Bm-mod then once on Bm then again on Bm-mod.

When G is played, it is strummed/picked about 3 times on G-mod then once on G then again on G-mod.

When D is played, it is strummed/picked about once on each chord in this order: Dsus  D  D-mod  D.


A  Bm  G  D    x2

A                Bm 
You look at me like you've been saved
G                 D
From another one that got away. 
A                Bm
So I'm your latest cup of tea
G                D
To keep your cold hands company, 
(here it becomes more picking, less strumming)
A            Bm
And I will warm you. 
G           D    
I will calm you down
A           Bm   
Until those waters
G           D
Are ready to be sailed upon,
A        Bm         G    D
    Under a honeymoon. 
A        Bm         G    D
    Under a honeymoon.

A                   Bm
You say you've never felt this way
G                  D
At least not this early.
A                Bm
We decide to hold nothing back -
G                 D
We'll act how we want to act. 
A          Bm       G          D
And so, eventually, we became pretty good actors.
A          Bm        G         D
Acting and reacting and acting and reacting
A        Bm         G    D
    Under a honeymoon. 
A        Bm         G    D
    Under a honeymoon.

A             Bm
We know the sun is gonna rise,
G             D
We tell ourselves to act surprised,
A              Bm
We're comforted in our denial 
G               D
That dark love can be reconciled
(strum each chord once softly here)
A        Bm          G     D
Oh please, oh please, .... reconcile me
A           Bm
From all these bad actors, 

All these bad endings.
(resume normal strumming)

A  Bm  G  D

A        Bm         G    D
    Under a honeymoon. 
A        Bm         G    D
    Under a honeymoon.
A                      Bm        
We want what we're not and we don't want to stop
'cause it feels right -
or at least it's feeling good,

A  A  A
A  Bm   G    D
....at least it feels good...
A  Bm   G    D

(strum each chord once softly for the end)
A                 Bm
I always fall in love too soon, 
G                            D
Caught beneath the glow of a honeymoon

there's one part where the progression changes to
Gb, G, B, A, the part right before reconcile me.

And another part
B, Gb , G, E This is like the bridge or something,

Then it goes back into (Under a Honeymoon)
D, A, B, G,

And from there, there is another variation. Im too lazy to find it out but Im sure you can do it by ear. The firt part of the song was spot on in your tab.
