The Promise  Anberlin

Song: ?The Promise?
Artist: Anberlin(Originally by When In Rome)
Album: Cities(2007)
Ok, this is my first tab, so I chose a simple song. I did it in Word so give me a break.
Pretty cool song though??
** I recommend playing the G and F the way that is shown. It gives it more fullness.
You can play them however you like but a G major won?t sound to spiffy in this song.**
**Tuning is in Standard EADGBE**

Verse 1:
If you need a frie[C]nd,
don't look [Am]to a stranger,
You know [F]in the end,
I'll always b[C]e there.
And when you're [C]in doubt,
and when you're i[Am]n danger,
Take a look all[F] around,
and I[C]'ll be there.
Chorus:
I'[C]m sorry, but I'm just thinking of the right words to say. (I promise)
I [Am]know they don't sound the way I planned them to be. (I promise)
But[F] if you'll wait around a while, I'll make you fall for me,
I pro[Am]mise, I pr[G]omise you I will.
Verse 2:
When you[C]r day is through,
and so is y[Am]our temper,
You know what[F] to do,
I'm gonna always[C] be there.
Someti[C]mes if I shout,
it's not[Am] what's intended.
These words ju[F]st come out,
with no g[C]ripe to bear.
Chorus 2:
I'm sorry, bu[C]t I'm just thinking of the right words to say. (I promise)
I know th[Am]ey don't sound the way I planned them to be. (I promise)
But if yo[F]u'll wait around a while, I'll make you fall for me,
I promi[Am]se, I promise y[G]ou...
I'm sorry, b[C]ut I'm just thinking of the right words to say. (I promise)
I know they [Am]don't sound the way I planned them to be. (I promise)
And if I had to[F] walk the world, I'd make you fall for me,
I prom[Am]ise, I promise you [G]I will.
