																				Little notes and explanations before we begin:
1) The numbers above the lyrics are the riffs which need to be played.
2) Number 3.1 (Riff 3, 1st part) number 3.2 (Riff 3, 2nd part) etc.
3) For the part 3.3, I think the first 2-3 notes aren't correct, try to improvise, the
end is good (I think).
4) For chorus and bridge part, I think it's better to strum the chords.
5) Please e-mail me if you find any mistakes concerning the tab.
6) This is one of the most beautiful ballads I've ever heard, so... enjoy!!!

1                     1      1
I'm so tired of being here,
                    1
Supressed by all my childish fears,
1
And if you have to leave, 
1
I wish that you would just leave,
1                                       
Because your presence still lingers here, 
1                          2
And it won't leave me alone.

3.1
These wounds won't seem to heal,
3.2
This pain is just too real,
                      3.3
There's just too much that time cannot erase.

Bm                  G                     Em
When you cried, I'd wipe away all of your tears,
Bm                  G                         Em
When you'd scream, I'd fight away all of your fears,
Bm                 G                         Em
And I've held your hand through all of these years,
Bm                  4
That you still have... all of me.


Second Verse

1
You used to captivate me,
1
By your resonating light,
1                        1
But now I'm bound by the life you left behind,
1                   1
Your face it haunts my once pleasant dreams,
1                         1                   2
Your voice it chased away all the sanity in me.

View Just Lyrics...

I'm so tired of being here
Suppressed by all my childish fears
And if you have to leave
I wish that you would just leave
'Cause your presence still lingers here
And it won't leave me alone

These wounds won't seem to heal, this pain is just too real
There's just too much that time cannot erase

When you cried, I'd wipe away all of your tears
When you'd scream, I'd fight away all of your fears
And I held your hand through all of these years
But you still have all of me

You used to captivate me by your resonating light
Now, I'm bound by the life you left behind
Your face it haunts my once pleasant dreams
Your voice it chased away all the sanity in me

These wounds won't seem to heal, this pain is just too real
There's just too much that time cannot erase

When you cried, I'd wipe away all of your tears
When you'd scream, I'd fight away all of your fears
And I held your hand through all of these years
But you still have all of me

I've tried so hard to tell myself that you're gone
But though you're still with me, I've been alone all along

When you cried, I'd wipe away all of your tears
When you'd scream, I'd fight away all of your fears
And I held your hand through all of these years
You still have all of me, me, me
