All-american Rejects - It Ends Tonight Acoustic chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
This is my first tab, so I hope this is up to scratch. If anything is not
 very understandable please leave a comment or email (nickdaly1@yahoo.co.nz) 


This is an easy song, and don't be fooled by the tricky looking chords (such 
as Em7/B), they merely state where you should start strumming from!


****All chords are played to four beats, except Esus and E (in the verses) 
which are 2 beats. For example it would go Am-2-3-4-F-2-3-4-Dm-2-3-4-Esus-2-
E(3)-4. Hope that explains it :)****


****As the chorus leads into the bridge, the 'Am' leads into the bridge, so 
the 'Am' in brackets is not played again, this is just to show it's been 
carried over, so the 4 beats start from when you play it at the end of the 
chorus on 'tonight'****


****In the last chorus/outro, the 'tonight' in brackets is in the background 
as 'When darkness...' is sung over the top of it, otherwise the 'C' would 
come in like 'it ends to(C)night'****


Apologies if any of that is confusing!

[Intro]

Am G F G


[Verse 1]

Am
   Your subtleties

F
   They strangle me

Dm            Esus     E   
   I can't explain myself at all.

Am
   And all that wants

F
   And all that needs

Dm             Esus    E  
   All I don't want to need at all.


[Pre-Chorus]

F                  F
   The walls start breathing

           C
My minds unweaving

           C
Maybe it's best you leave me alone.

F              C
   A weight is lifted

        Dm
On this evening

           Dm
I give the final blow.



[Chorus (1)]

     C                 F
When darkness turns to light,

          Am
It ends tonight

          G
It ends tonight.



[Verse 2]

Am
   A falling star

F
   Least I fall alone.

Dm             Esus          E
    I can't explain what you can't explain.

Am                  
   Your finding things

F
   That you didn't know

Dm           Esus     E
   I look at you with such disdain 


[Pre-Chorus]

F                  F
   The walls start breathing

           C
My minds unweaving

           C
Maybe it's best you leave me alone.

F              C
   A weight is lifted

        Dm
On this evening

           Dm
I give the final blow.


[Chorus (2)]

     C                 F
When darkness turns to light,

          Am
It ends tonight

          G
It ends tonight.

                 C                    F
Just a little insight will make this right

                 Am
It's too late to fight

          G
It ends tonight,

          Am
It ends tonight.



[Bridge]

(Am)    G             D/F#
Now I'm on my own side

                 F                 Am
It's better than being on your side

        [ch]Em7/B[/ch]                  D/F#
It's my fault when you're blind

                   F                      Em
It's better that I see it through your eyes

          F                   Dm
All these thoughts locked inside

               G
Now you're the first to know

  
[Chorus (3)/Outro]

     C                 F
When darkness turns to light,

          Am
It ends tonight

          G
It ends tonight.

                 C                    F
Just a little insight will make this right

                 Am
It's too late to fight

          G
It ends tonight,

          
It ends (tonight)


     C                 F
When darkness turns to light,

          Am
It ends tonight

          G
It ends tonight.

                 C                    F
Just a little insight will make this right

                 Am
It's too late to fight

          G
It ends tonight,

          C*
It ends tonight.

*(I like to finish with a final strum on this C)
