Hello! This is my first tab. I am merely combining what I've learned from videos and the 
(limited) tabs across the internet, into a simple chord sheet for people to get the 
jist of the song. To figure out the rhythm, listen to the song. Hope you enjoy!

(Side Note: When I play, I use B5, C#5, D#5, E5. Whether you use these or not is up to 
you. I feel it sounds better "my" way)

Capo 4 (All chords are relevant to the capo)

This:

e|---0-------0-------0-------0---|
B|-----0-------0-------0-------0-|
G|-------------------------------|
D|-2-----2/4-----4/6-----6/1-----|
A|-------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------|

is played over the first four lines of the song. It is played again during the song, so 
I will refer to it as IR1 (Intro Riff 1)



IR1
I fell asleep last night (I fell asleep last night)
IR1
But I woke up too late (I woke up too late)
IR1
And everything I loved (Everything I loved)
IR1
Oh I begin to hate

E                           A
I know I sound repetitive
                      E
Cause I'm repeating myself
                      B
And I'm competitive
                          E
I want you all by yourself
                  A                  E
And that alone is just the problem
(E)
I've got these woes
  B
I just can't solve them
           E                     A
If I could gather up the nerve
           E              B
I'd put my feelings into words
         E                    A                     E
And if I weren't so young, or stupid, or restless
                    B
I might be able to just soon forget this
C#      B       A                  C#        D#       E
Just forget this, just forgive this, just forget this

E          A             C#
Please just forget me
         B       A
When I'm out all alone on the east coast
E           A            C#
Please don't forgive me
            B        A
When you're home all alone
                      E     A
And you need me most
                         E     B
Oh, and you need me most
Yeah, when you need me most

E   A   E   B

          E                  A
Oh, if I only had the heart
             E                   B
To find out exactly who you are
(You know I'd try now)
    E
But it's just fine
    A
No you can't save me
        E
It's no fault but mine
B
Please just blame me

           E                     A
If I could gather up the nerve
           E              B
I'd put my feelings into words
         E                    A                     E
And if I weren't so young, or stupid, or restless
                    B
I might be able to just soon forget this
C#      B       A                  C#        B        A
Just forget this, just forgive this, just forget this

E          A             C#
Please just forget me
         B       A
When I'm out all alone on the east coast
E           A            C#
Please don't forgive me
            B        A
When you're home all alone
                      E     A
And you need me most
                         E     B
Oh, and you need me most
Yeah, when you need me most
