This pattern pretty much repeats 3 times, and the other guitar is just strumming the chords.

Lyrics:
Your voice is adrift I can't expect it
To sing to me
As if I was the only one
I'll follow you
A leaf that's following the sun
When will my weight be too much for you?
When will my ideas really be my own?
This moment keeps on moving
We were never meant to hold on

Well this was a scene worth waking up for
When I woke up
You planted me in my own pot
I don't know why
But somehow it just feels so wrong
When you set i will be lonely
But when you rise again I'll have become the sun
And I will shine down upon you
As if you were the only one

Your voice is your own I can't protect it
You'll have to sing
Averse no one has ever known
Don't be afraid
Because no one ever sings alone
Your weight will never be too much for me
Your ideas have always been your own
And this moment keeps on moving
We were never meant to hold on
