Allison Weiss - Wait For Me chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
This song is really nice and chordy and rather fun to play around a campfire or 
something like that. It's not the most popular song she's written but I really 
enjoy it quite a lot. SO MANY FEELS. Anyway. 

Capo 3, in D# maj. You're going to have to know some basic finger-picking to play 
this song. If you really want to, you can use the flick and slap technique, which 
is very nicely explained here:

I feel it adds a good percussive touch, but it's not necessary. Other than that, 
though, this song only has a few changes that you'll get used to quickly with a 
bit of practice.

A few more notes, there are little hammer-ons she does on C, Am, and G during the 
verses. If you listen to the song they're rather prominent. All you've got to do 
is unfret that specific string (for C and A it's the D string and for G it's the A 
string) and hammer back on in eighth notes. Another thing, during the verses 
there's this little chromatic line that moves up a fret from the G chord to the G# 
note, then rests on Am. All you have to do is move your finger up the E string 
from fret 3 to fret 4 on beats 1 and 3 before making the switch. 


(Intro) C w/ hammer-ons x4 

(Verse 1)
                 F                      C
I forgot what it felt like to feel so alive
                 F        G    (G#)       Am 
So I'm packing my suitcase and changing my mind
                   F                G               Am      G         F
I forgot what it's like to look the things you want right between the eyes
                                      G (here w/ hammer-ons) 
It's never been so hard to say goodbye 
                F                      C 
I'm back to the basics and waiting for signs
                F       G    (G#)      Am   
I'm praying for patience and falling behind
     F             G                 Am       G     F    
It's not the way I meant to be, it's just how I'm designed
  F               G              C
I get so tired of running out of time

(Chorus)
C            E              F                C
 I'm missing out on all the places I could go
    F               C        F                  G (G#)
The people I could know, the nights so not alone
Am              C            E                 Am 
  We'll never make it and it wasn't meant to be
G        F              G           C 
But I'll wait if you’ll wait for me

(Verse 2) 
                F                     C
I'm trying to remember your face in my hands
           F       G    (G#)     Am
I wanted adventure, you met my demands
  F               G              Am      G     F 
I told myself the day I left, “I want it but I can't”
  F                                G 
I fell for something far away again
                  F                           C
I guess that it's pointless, but I mean what I say
          F              G        (G#)      Am      G   F   
I never expected through all this time that I could be okay
                         G             Am      G        F
Yeah, all the things you do to me, the promise and the pain
                   G                 C   
I wish with all my heart that I could stay

(Chorus)

(Verse Relapse into Bridge) 
                 F                      C
I forgot what it felt like to feel so alive
                 F        G    (G#)       Am 
So I'm packing my suitcase and changing my mind
                   F                G               Am      G         F
I forgot what it's like to look the things you want right between the eyes
            C   G    Am  F    C  G     Am F 
And say goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, goodbye  

(Chorus) 

C            E              F                C
 I'm missing out on all the places I could go
    F               C        F                  G (G#)
The people I could know, the nights so not alone
Am              C            E                 Am 
  We'll never make it and it wasn't meant to be
G        F              G           Am
But I'll wait if you’ll wait for me
G        F              G           C
But I'll wait if you’ll wait for me
