Song: Only One
Author: Yellowcard
Album: Ocean Avenue

Tab by: Nex the Slayer
e-mail: tjnex@yahoo.com

This is my favorite Yellowcard song, and I just wasn't happy with the other tabs.

Version 1) Didn't have any minor chords.

Version 2) Had too many minor chords.

Version 3) Made my head hurt, and missed the 5th chord in the Chorus. (Who are you 
calling tone deaf?!)

Version 4) Good, but missed the mysterious 5th chord in the Chorus. (It's not C major!)

I've listened over and over, and I'm convinced that THESE are the true chords.
I've also added an easier version for beginners in the key of "Em".

True Version: Key of "C#m"
Chords Used: E, A, B, C#m, G#7
Standard Tuning: EADGBe

E Major: x221xx
A Major: xx222x
*B Major: 224442
*C# Minor: 446654
*G# Dominant 7th: 464574                               (Also called G# Major with a minor 7th)

Note: "*" means it's a bar chord.
Also, If you don't feel comfortable with G#7, you can play a normal G# Major.


(Intro)                                               (Note: Every letter or dash is a beat.)
E---, A---, B-, C#m-, A---

(Verse 1)

C#m                         A
Broken, this fragile thing now,

       B       C#m                A
and I can't, I can't pick up the pieces.

    C#m                          A
And I've thrown my words all around,

       B        C#m               A
but I can't, I can't give you a reason.


(Pre-Chorus)

           B
I feel so broken up (so broken up),

     C#m
and I give up (I give up),

E                             B
I just wanna tell you so you know...


(Chorus)

       C#m
Here I go,

            A
scream my lungs out,

                   E
and try to get to you.

            B   G#7
You are my only one.

      C#m
I let go,

             A
there's just no one,

                     E
who gets me like you do.

             B      G#7   (C#m from below)
You are my only, my only one.


(Intro to Verse 2)
C#m---, A---, B-, C#m-, A---


(Verse 2)

C#m                       A
Made my mistakes let you down,

       B        C#m                A
and I can't, I can't hold on for too long.

C#m                       A
Ran my whole life in the ground,

       B         C#m                 A
and I can't, I can't get up when you're gone.


(Pre-Chorus)

                   B
And something's breaking up (breaking up),

            C#m
I feel like giving up (like giving up),

E                           B
I won't walk out until you know...


(Chorus)

       C#m
Here I go,

            A
scream my lungs out,

                   E
and try to get to you.

            B   G#7
You are my only one.

      C#m
I let go,

             A
there's just no one,

                     E
who gets me like you do.

             B      G#7    C#m
You are my only, my only one.

(Bridge)

       C#m
Here I go,

       A
so dishonestly.

         E
Leave a note,

            B    G#7
for you my only one.

       C#m
And I know,

             A
you can see right through me,

           E
so let me go,

              B       G#7
and you will find someone...


(Chorus)

       C#m
Here I go,

            A
scream my lungs out,

                   E
and try to get to you.

             B   G#7
You are my only one.

      C#m
I let go,

             A
there's just no one,

              E
no one like you.

             B      G#7      
You are my only, my only

C#m        A
one.

         E        B
My only one.

    G#7  C#m       A
My only one.

          E
My only one.

             B      G#7   (C#m from Outro)
You are my only, my only one.
