Ben Marwood - Hold Your Breath tab

Great song. It's not too complex but a lot of the parts have little variations.
I sometimes play the lower note twice, mainly when I get to the second chorus, and the 
outro is just variations on the break riff. Enjoy!

She walked out into the city streets, he watched her slide from view,
As the knot in his stomach began to tell his head, what his heart already knew,
She'd been late home every night from work for the past month maybe two,
And she looked so alive yeah and she hardly ever frowned, the way she used to do

And there's only so long you can hold your breath for,

He walked out into the city streets, she watched him dissapear,
And the scars on her wrist mirrored the ones on his heart, that she'd put there over all 
these years,

And she had spent three hours doing her hair, the first date that they had had,
And now she tries to explain herself again and again but he just doesn't know he 
doesn't understand

And he knows she won't be home, but he'll still wait by the door,
And there's only so long you can hold your breath before your
body starts to fail you and you have to breathe again,
because you always will move on and if you don't then it's the end...oh hell yes
