Owl City - Tidal Wave
The strumming you should know if you like the song.
Its down, up, down. Just repeat this.
There was another tab for this, but I thought it was terrible. I'm sure this is much better.
Many thanks, Adam.
Tuning: Standard.
No capo.
[F#] [G#m] [B] [E]  
 Chords needed: e:---2----4----2---0------|

(Breathe)[E]I wish I could cross my [B]arms, and cross your mi[E]nd
Cause I believe you'd un[B]fold your paper h[F#]eart and wear it on your sleeve[E]
All my life I wish I broke m[B]irrors, instead of promis[E]es
Cause all I see, is a s[B]hattered conscience s[F#]taring right back at me
[E]I wish I had covered all my t[B]racks completely cause I'm [E]so afraid
Is that the light at the f[B]ar end of the [F#]tunnel or just the train?
[E]Lift your arms only heaven [B]knows, where the danger grows
A[E]nd it's safe to say there's a [B]bright light up a[F#]head and help is on the way
([E]Help is on the w[B]ay, Help is on the [G#m]way, Help is on the w[F#]ay...)
Help is on the way
[E]I forget the l[B]ast time I felt [F#]brave, I just recall insecurity
[E]Cause it came down [B]like a tidal w[F#]ave, and sorrow swept over me
E, B, F#, E, B, F#
[E]Depression, please cut to the [B]chase and cut a long story [E]short
Oh please be done. How much [B]longer can this d[F#]rama afford to run?
[E]Fate looks sharp, severs all my [B]ties and breaks whatever doesn't b[E]end
But sadly then, all my [B]heavy hopes just [F#]pull me back down again
(B[E]ack down agai[B]n, back down a[G#m]gain, back down ag[F#]ain, back down ag[E]ain, back
down aga[B]in, back down a[G#m]gain, back down aga[F#]in.)
[E]I forget the la[B]st time I felt [F#]brave, I just recall insecurity
[E]Cause it came down l[B]ike a tidal [F#]wave, and sorrow swept over me
[E]When I was g[B]iven grace and l[F#]ove, I was blind but now I can see
[E]Cause I found a [B]new hope from [F#]above, and courage swept over me
B, E, F#, B, E, F#
It hurts just to [B]wake up, whenever you're [E]wearing [F#]thin
Alone on the [B]outside, so tired of [E]looking [F#]in
The end is u[B]ncertain and I've never been [E]so afraid[F#]
But I don't need a [B]telescope to see that there's hope
E F# B..... (fade out.)
And that makes me feel brave...
Thanks! - Adam S.
