Black Balloon  Goo Goo Dolls

This is a great song. Hope this tab sounds ok to u, it only took about 15 minutes to work out.
[C]Baby's Black balloon makes me f[F]ly
[C]I almost fell into that hole in your l[F]ife
[C]And you're not thinking about to[F]morrow
[Am]'Cause you were the [Bm]same as [C]me
[F]But on your kn[D]ees[F]
[C]A thousand other boys could never re[F]ach you
[C]How could I have been the [F]one
[C]I saw the world spin beneath [F]you
[Am]And scatter like i[Bm]ce from the s[C]poon
[F]That was your w[G]omb[F]
[Am]Comin' do[G]wn the wor[F]ld turned ov[C]er
And ang[Am]els fa[G]ll wi[F]thout you th[C]ere
And I[Am] go o[G]n as y[F]ou get c[C]older
Or a[Am]re you so[G]meone's pr[C]ayer
[C]You know the lies they always t[F]old you
[C]And the love you never k[F]new
[C]What's the things they never s[F]howed you
That s[Am]wallowed the l[Bm]ight from the s[C]un
[F]Inside your ro[G]om[F]
And there you have it. It's fairly simple, so you shouldn't have much trouble. Just listen to the song to see for real how it goes.

I really like what you've done here. Very easy to follow and easy to play (and still sound professional). Few fixes though. Make sure to put a capo on first fret, unless you'd like to transpose up one half-step to play in Db. Second, I can see why one would play a Bm chord during the latter part of the verse after the Am. The D in the voice part IS present in the Bm chord. However the chord in the music overall sounds major, which leads me to believe that every Bm written here should be a G, which also has a voiced note of D, or another form of G with lower tones. Lastly, that D in the first bridge should still be a G as well, also possibly with lower tones. Maybe add chords for the instrumental and what follows it and this should be ready to pick up and play anytime.
