Wait for Me  Allison Weiss

This song is really nice and chordy and rather fun to play around a campfire or
something like that. It's not the most popular song she's written but I really
enjoy it quite a lot. SO MANY FEELS. Anyway.
Capo 3, in D# maj. You're going to have to know some basic finger-picking to play
this song. If you really want to, you can use the flick and slap technique, which
is very nicely explained here:

I feel it adds a good percussive touch, but it's not necessary. Other than that,
though, this song only has a few changes that you'll get used to quickly with a
bit of practice.
Chords used:

x 1 3 x 0
A few more notes, there are little hammer-ons she does on C, Am, and G during the
verses. If you listen to the song they're rather prominent. All you've got to do
is unfret that specific string (for C and A it's the D string and for G it's the A
string) and hammer back on in eighth notes. Another thing, during the verses
there's this little chromatic line that moves up a fret from the G chord to the G#
note, then rests on Am. All you have to do is move your finger up the E string
from fret 3 to fret 4 on beats 1 and 3 before making the switch.
(Intro) C w/ hammer-ons x4
(Verse 1)
I forgot what it [F]felt like to feel so al[C]ive
So I'm packing my[F] suitcase[G] and [(G#)]changing my[Am] mind
I forgot what it's [F]like to look the [G]things you want [Am]right be[G]tween the [F]eyes
G (here w/ hammer-ons)
It's never been so hard to say goodbye
I'm back to the [F]basics and waiting for [C]signs
I'm praying for [F]patience[G] and [(G#)]falling be[Am]hind
It's [F]not the way I [G]meant to be, it's [Am]just how [G]I'm de[F]signed
I [F]get so tired of [G]running out of [C]time
(Chorus)
[C] I'm missing [E]out on all the [F]places I could go[C]
The [F]people I could k[C]now, the [F]nights so not alone[G] [(G#)]
[Am] We'll never ma[C]ke it and it [E]wasn't meant to be[Am]
[G]But I'll [F]wait if you?ll [G]wait for me[C]
(Verse 2)
I'm trying to re[F]member your face in my[C] hands
I wanted ad[F]venture,[G] you [(G#)]met my de[Am]mands
I [F]told myself the [G]day I left, ?I [Am]want it [G]but I [F]can't?
I [F]fell for something far away again[G]
I guess that it's [F]pointless, but I mean what I[C] say
I never ex[F]pected through [G]all this [(G#)]time that [Am]I could [G]be o[F]kay
Yeah, all the things you [G]do to me, the [Am]promise [G]and the p[F]ain
I wish with all my [G]heart that I could[C] stay
(Chorus)
(Verse Relapse into Bridge)
I forgot what it [F]felt like to feel so al[C]ive
So I'm packing my[F] suitcase[G] and [(G#)]changing my[Am] mind
I forgot what it's [F]like to look the [G]things you want [Am]right be[G]tween the [F]eyes
And say good[C]bye,[G] good[Am]bye,[F] good[C]bye[G], good[Am]bye[F]
(Chorus)
[C] I'm missing [E]out on all the [F]places I could go[C]
The [F]people I could k[C]now, the [F]nights so not alone[G] [(G#)]
[Am] We'll never ma[C]ke it and it [E]wasn't meant to be[Am]
[G]But I'll [F]wait if you?ll [G]wait for me[Am]
[G]But I'll [F]wait if you?ll [G]wait for me[C]
