The Fighter  The Fray

This is my attempt at a tab of The Fray's new song "The Fighter". For this tab, I'm
putting the chords in the body with annotations about when to play each riff. The riffs are
at the bottom.
(Start Riff 1)
Intro: F
Verse 1:
The lover held her l[C]ove
She begged him not to [Am]go
The fighter wrapped his g[C]loves
The fighter said I [Am]know, I know, I know
Just this one last t[G]ime
I swear you'll still be m[F]ine
But he can't promise m[Am]uch
He goes for one last t[G]ouch, one last touch
(End Riff 1)
(Start Riff 2)
Chorus 1:
[F]Maybe we were meant to be l[Am]onely, l[G]onely
[F]Maybe we were meant to be [Am]on our [G]own
[F]Loneliness has always been [Am]with me, [G]with me
[F]But maybe we don't have to be [Am]all a[G]lone
(End Riff 2)
Break 1: C
(Start Riff 3)
Verse 2:
The fighter goes ins[C]ide
The doubt is creeping [Am]in
He swings with all his [C]might
At all that might have [Am]been
And she's in love with h[F]im
But lovers don't always [G]win
He never even saw the s[Am]wing
She calls out his [C]name, calls his name
(End Riff 3)
(Start Riff 2)
Chorus 1:
[F]Maybe we were meant to be l[Am]onely, l[G]onely
[F]Maybe we were meant to be [Am]on our [G]own
[F]Loneliness has always been [Am]with me, [G]with me
[F]But maybe we don't have to be [Am]all a[G]lone
(End Riff 2)
Bridge 1: F F Am C
[F] What breaks your [Am]bones[G] [F]
Is not the [Am]load you're [G]carrying[F]
What breaks you [Am]down[G] [F]
Is all in [Am]how you [G]carry
[G] [Bm] [Bm] [Em] [Em]  
(Start Riff 4)
Verse 3:
The [Em]lover [Em]held her [D]love
She begged him not to [Bm]go
She unwrapped his [D]gloves
The lover said I [Bm]know, I know, I know
Kissed his trembling [G]lips
She touched finger[A]tips
But somehow they both k[Bm]now
He's not coming [D]home, Coming home
(End Riff 4)
(Start Riff 5)
Break 1: G G Bm A x4
Chorus 2:
[G]Loneliness has always been [Bm]with me, [A]with me
[G]Maybe we were meant to be [Bm]on our [A]own
[G]But I got to try or it [Bm]will dest[A]roy me
[G]Cause maybe we don't have to be [Bm]all al[A]one
(End Riff 5)
(Start Riff 6)
Outro: G
