If anyone wants to help out on this one I could use it! Most basic skeleton I have so far is:

Verse: A-C-Dm-C-F-G

Chorus: D-A

I'm working on all the other parts but I'm not the greatest at learning by ear so I may be a while perfecting the rest of the chorus and bridge. If someone else wants to give it a go go for it!

Here's what I found off Ultimate Guitar Tabs. I've played it through a few times on my uke and it sounds right to me!


A
There's my suitor, struggling to find his footing
C Dm C F G
Lost, awoken alone, after sleeping off inebriation
A
I forget that I've been holding my tongue for so long
C Dm C F G
Cause we had a run, so don your Sunday best and wake up

Lead Guitar Riff/Interlude: A (x2)

A
You went missing, never mind the life I was wishing
C Dm C F G
For cause you'd had enough, but at least you got enough to fake it
A
I'll keep smiling, optimistically denying
C Dm C F E
What I feared the most that you disappeared and leave me wondering


D A
Was I just a playful pawn, a trophy you had won?
D A
Someone who could lift you when you're low?
D A
Innocence to prey upon, or allies in the sun?
D A
Heaven sent, or just hell bent on love?


F C Bb F G A
Aaaaaaah Aaaaaaa Aaaaaah Aaah ahhh Aaaah


A
Darling liar, always running through the brier
C Dm C F G
What, the cuts aren't enough? Just an aggravation you'd forget like
A
Promised patience, halitic alleviations
C Dm C F E
Of what I should've known was a sign of future expiration

D A
Was I just a playful pawn, a trophy you had won?
D A
Someone who could lift you when you're low?
D A
Innocence to prey upon, or allies in the sun?
D A
Heaven sent, or just hell bent on love?


F C Bb F D/F# G
Aaaaaaah Aaaaaaa Aaaaaah Aaah ahhh Aaaah

C Bb F
Aaaah Aaaah Aaaaaaaaaah


G C Bb F G
So will I marry a myth? Or is there room for second chances?
F C Bb F
The lust lives in the dark and may never show


Dm G
Well, the battle ended years ago
C B/Am Am G
Now this is how you say hello
Fm C
Well where'd you take your leave?
Dm E F#m G
Or would you rather keep another trick up your sleeve?
Dm G
Do you remember love?
C B/Am Am G
How you said you really never could feel enough?
Fm C
Well did you give it a try?
Dm
Why don't you open your eyes and let me know?

Interlude: F - C - F - C

F C
Was I just a playful pawn, a trophy you had won?
F C
Someone who could lift you when you're low?
F C
Innocence to prey upon, or allies in the sun?
F C
Heaven sent, just hell bent on love?


G# D# C# D# A# C
Aaaaaaah Aaaaaaa Aaaaaah Aaah ahhh Aaaah

Dm G
What will happen to us?
C B/Am Am G
Do you think we'll make the cut?
Fm C
Should we give it a try?
Fm C
Give an eye for an eye?
Fm Am
Give ourselves to the lie?

The letter spacing isn't accurate, but hopefully it'll help enough to get you started!

No problem! There's also chords for Waves, The Line, and the bass parts of Bitter Suites IV and V so far I believe.

Chordify.net also does wonders for figuring out chords- you can pretty much plug in any YouTube url and it'll analyze the chords for you. Super helpful.
