Angel Olsen - The Waiting chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
The Waiting by Angel Olsen
From the album Half Way Home.
Tabbed by Laxan.
I hastily wrote down the lyrics, so there may be errors.

Worked out the tab using this video of her playing live:

All open chords except for G* and Cm which are played as a barre chord.
Enjoy!


Cm        G*  G               
Here you come along,
Am                      D              G
I take a breath and remind myself that I too can be strong
Am                      D
Thought I was cool, turns out I'm a fool
Am                      D
Clearly you've proved me wrong
G                        Am          D            G
I didn't know what I was missing when I was alone.

Chorus:
        Cm        G*   G
And now I'm fruitlessly waiting for
Am                      D                     G
Someone not thinking before they start rushing to my door
Am              D
Someone to run not walk
Am              D
Oh, someone to sing not talk
Am              D
Oh, no hesitiation at all
G               Am             D       G
Sometimes I need you to be the one to call
Am                         D
Well im lost in my thoughts they tumble ahead
Am                  D
Over and over again, yeah it's true


            Cm       G*                G
Just take a look at what's been done to me
Cm              G*                     
I wasted time to ponder
Cm              G*
Here I am now, all Alice in Wonder
G               Am                    D
Partly I do this to myself but why can't you see
G               Am                     D
The gesture is small but know that it means the world to me
Am                          D
Oh, forgive me for wanting, I'm only learning life
Am                          D
Forgiven myself and now, there's no returning
G               Am             D
I want to be the one who knows the best way
G               Am             D
I want to be the one who knows the best way
G               Am             D              G                      
I want to be the one who knows the best way to love you
            Cm  G*     G
But now I'm foolishly waiting for
Am                      D                      G
Someone not thinking before they start rushing to my door
Am                D
Someone to run not walk
Am                     D
Oh, someone to sing not talk
Am                   D
Oh, no hesitation at all
G               Am            D         G
Sometimes I need you to be the one to call
G       Am          D         G
I need you to be the one
G       Am          D         G
I need you to be the one
G       Am          D         G
I need you to be the one

Outro: 
G       Am     D      G 
G       Am     D      G

Note: I think the G* she uses is a weird variation that I can't seem to find, but 
this is close enough for now.
If you have a correction, please put it in the comments and I'll edit, thanks.
