Standard Tuning... Capo - 8th fret.
All chords relative to capo.
Here are the chords I will use in this TAB... I'm not sure on all of the
correct names, but if you follow what it says, it should sound right!
Verse: G? D? Gmaj7 Pre-Chorus: C9 Bm G7 C Cm G Am5...
 
 E||--------0---------------------------------------------------------------|
 B||--------3---3-----------------------3--3--3--1--1--3--------------------|
 G||--------0---0---0-------------------0--4--0--0--0--0---2---p0-----------|
 D||--------0---4---4-------------------2--4--3--2--1--0---2------2---p0----|
 A||------------5---5-------------------3--2--2--3--3--2---0----------------|
 E||----------------3-------------------------3--------3--------------------|

With the "Am5..." chord, he plays it like that every time it comes round,
with the two pull-offs. If you listen to the song, you can hear the exact rhythm.
Chorus: G Dsus4/F# Em7 G3/G G3/F# G3/E G3/D C9
 
 E||--------3---3---------3----------------------------3-----|
 B||--------3---3---------3-----0----0-----0----0------3-----|
 G||--------0---0---------0-----0----0-----0----0------0-----|
 D||--------0---0---------2-----5----4-----2----0------2-----|
 A||--------2---0---------2----------------------------3-----|
 E||--------3---2---------0---------------------------(3)----|

The succession of G3 chords followed by C9 is played in the chorus under the
lyrics "growing all alone" and later "before I'm all alone". The chords are
played each to one syllable, I've tried to make this clear below, but I just
thought I'd put a note in here to make it absolutely clear.
A chord followed by "~" shows that it should be plucked once and allowed to ring out.
Enjoy!
VERSE:
G?~ D?~ Gmaj7~
Every time I think of growing up I find out that I just slipped back,
I got it all wrong you know I,
G?~ D?~ Gmaj7~
Feel younger than I did when I was younger on a backwards track
G?~ D?~ Gmaj7~
I thought by now I could have figured it all out instead I'm further back,
Feels kinda stupid but I,
G?~ D?~ Gmaj7~
Feel 16 in my head but I guess it's only five years back
PRE-CHORUS:
C9~ Bm~ G7~ C~
But I... won't... see the signs
Cm~ G~ Am5...
it took so long but you were always on my mind, yeah,
CHORUS:
[G] For all the times I've tried to [Dsus4/F#]take a little time out for my[Em7]self,
I'm just [G3/G]grow - [G3/F#]ing [G3/E]all [G3/D]a - [C9]lone again
But I [C9]find in my mind that I'm not.
[G] Time is running out and [Dsus4/F#]I just want to say I'm sorry[Em7] now,
Be[G3/G]fore [G3/F#]I'm [G3/E]all [G3/D]a - [C9]lone again, and I'm broken and cold
The ageing [C9]superhero in me is t[G]ired
Because he's [C9]lived too fast for t[G]oo long
C9 G~
and he still longs to be inspired
VERSE:
G?~ D?~ G7~
I feel old, feel broke feel cold and I can't fight back,
It sounds so stupid I,
G?~ D?~ Gmaj7~
But it's gone, this train won't run, guess it must be the track
PRE-CHORUS:
C9~ Bm~ G7~ C~
But I... won't... see the signs
Cm~ G~ Am5...
it took so long but you were always on my mind, yeah,
CHORUS (first part only):
[G] For all the times I've tried to [Dsus4/F#]take a little time out for my[Em7]self,
I'm just [G3/G]grow - [G3/F#]ing [G3/E]all [G3/D]a - [C9]lone again
But I [C9]find in my mind that I'm not.
[G] Time is running out and [Dsus4/F#]I just want to say I'm sorry[Em7] now,
Be[G3/G]fore [G3/F#]I'm [G3/E]all [G3/D]a - [C9]lone again, and I'm broken and cold
