Guitar tabs with lyrics

I suggest watching http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BB3hXrW_jz8
to get timings and such.

intro - slow build up:
Brenden starts by plucking and building up to a G chord diagramGG chord While Jake plays some harmonics
that i can't quite make out.

G chord diagramGG-Gm chord diagramGmGm-d
This part is pretty easy.  Brenden strums a G chord diagramGG, Gm chord diagramGmGm, D chord diagramDD (sometimes standard d, sometimes a
power chord with a B chord diagramBB bass note on the 6th string) while Jake lays a reverse arpeggio on
the G chord diagramGG and G chord diagramGG minor something like this:

---------------------------------------------|
3--------3-----------------------------------|
--4--------3-------7-------------------------|
----5--------5-----7-------------------------|
------5--------5---5-------------------------|
---------------------------------------------|

That's the basis of the intro/chrous parts.  Jake does a lot of improv, particularly
around the D chord diagramDD chord in the chorus chords.

During the verses Brenden plays some arpeggio around the following chord forms

The first couple of verses are just Joel playing keys, but if you are playing on an
acoustic by yourself you can play as well:
