Song: Save My Life

I'm actually surprised this hasn't been tabbed already considering how simple an 
acoustic of this song is.

Chords (EADGBe):
Am - 002210
C - 032010
G - 320033
Dm - 000231

Intro:
Am C G Dm

Am C G(hold)

Verse:
Am          C
You leave a trail of my broken tears,
Dm          G
Empty words for me to fall,
Am               C
Broadway at dark is where you left my heart,
Dm             G
Love is cursed in a bar,

Am                  C
Now I can't get up, Now I can't get down
Dm                 G
With all the games that you play,
Am             C
You shut me up and you shut me out,
Dm                 G
It's all the same, nothing's changed,

Pre-Chorus:
Am                  C
Got me on the ledge where you keep me waiting,
Dm                           G
Standing on the edge and I'm begging, begging,
Am                                C                     Dm
I can't read your mind, won't you help me draw the line?

Chorus:
        Dm           Am
Save my life, set me free,
             C                   G
These lonely nights are haunting me,
       Dm           Am
Cut me out from the cold,
           C                G
This young heart is getting old,
        Dm           Am
Save my life, set me free,
       C           G
Yes or no is all I need,
          Dm       Am              C
You don't want me, darling, let me know,

Just say goodbye and I'll go,

Interlude:
Am C Dm G

Verse:
Am            C                  Dm
You're taking more than you even need,
              G
See, you just keep me hard-up,
Am                C                   Dm
Watch the minutes stare, they pass me by,
                G
Watch the hours flare, push the throttle,

Pre-Chorus:
Am                  C
Got me on the ledge where you keep me waiting,
Dm                           G
Standing on the edge and I'm begging, begging,
Am                                C                     Dm G
I can't read your mind, won't you help me draw the line?

Chorus:
        Dm           Am
Save my life, set me free,
             C                   G
These lonely nights are haunting me,
       Dm           Am
Cut me out from the cold,
           C                G
This young heart is getting old,
        Dm           Am
Save my life, set me free,
       C           G
Yes or no is all I need,
          Dm       Am              C
You don't want me, darling, let me know,

Just say goodbye and I'll go,

Bridge:
         Dm
You hold on to me,
         Am
You hold on to me,
         C
You hold on to me,

I try to fight it,
     Dm
Hold on to me,
         Am
You hold on to me,
         C
You hold on to me,

It just ain't right,
       Dm
I hold on to you,
     Am
Hold on to you,
       C
I hold on to you,

Make up your mind,
       Dm
I hold on to you,
     Am
Hold on to you,
     C
Hold on to you,

I ain't got time,

Chorus:
        Dm           Am
Save my life, set me free,
             C                   G
These lonely nights are haunting me,
       Dm           Am
Cut me out from the cold,
           C                G
This young heart is getting old,
        Dm           Am
Save my life, set me free,
       C           G
Yes or no is all I need,
          Dm       Am              C
You don't want me, darling, let me know,
                              Dm Am C
Just say goodbye and I'll go,
                          G(hold)
Just say goodbye and I'll go.
