lyrics
She said let's change our luck
this night is all we've got 
drive fast until we crash
this dead end life
sweet dreams that won't come true
I'd leave it all for you
brick walls are closing in 
let's make a run tonight

blinded by the lights
hold you through forever
Won't let you go

cause if you jump 
I will jump too
we will fall together
from the building's ledge
never looking back at what we've done
we'll say it was love
cause I would die for you
on skyway avenue

she said don't change your mind
let's leave this town behind
we'll race right off the cliff
they will remember this
it all got so mundane
with you I'm back again
just take me by the hand
we're close to the edge

blinded by the lights
hold you through forever
never let you go

cause if you jump 
I will jump too
we will fall together
from the building's ledge
never looking back at what we've done
we'll say it was love
cause I would die for you
on skyway avenue

where are your guts to fly
soaring through, through the night
and if you take that last step
I'll follow you
leave the edge and fly
we're finally alive

cause if you jump 
I will jump too
we will fall together
from the building's ledge
never looking back at what we've done
we'll say it was love
cause I would die for you
on skyway avenue
so what's left to prove
we have made it through

well that's it from me guys, i havn't done a tab in a while
but this band inspired me to do one for them
i hope it's write
sounds write to me but that's for you guys to decide
so let me know you're thoughts and comments
if you missed my msn up the top there
it's rotatingfatmen@hotmail.com
plz don't add me if you do not lie in australia
cause you'll neva catch me cause of your time zone
anyway guys
talk to you all soon

thanx
Benny

the only problem with it is that the verse is slightly longer that what you've written, if people can piece that together its probably the best tab for this song, its good that you kept the bar chords they actually use in the song instead of substituting for powerchords
