So the other version that is up is super close, but there were a few adjustments I 
made when I was playing that seemed to sound better. I have zero clue if this is 
right though. It's my first tab so sorry if it looks weird. Also if you have 
corrections I'd love to hear them. I adore this song.

NO CAPO 

Intro: Cadd9 G x2


Cadd9                       G
The written word was just enough, 
Cadd9                    Em                 D
To keep us going when the world would get a little tough.
     Cadd9                 G
And, I held you up when winter came, 
Cadd9                         Em         D
And no one said a thing when everything became so very
Em               G           Em           D
Complicated complicated complicated they said.

Cadd9                        G 
The spring held nothing but surprise, 
Cadd9                        Em        D
And all that we ignored was open to our eyes.
             Cadd9                     G
And I said, then maybe we should settle down, 
Cadd9               Em         D
Find a cottage or a tunnel underground

And we'll be

    Em           G         Em              D 
Complicated complicated complicated they said we would be,
  Em           G         Em              D  
Complicated complicated complicated they said.
Em      Cadd9      G             D
Ohhhhhhhohhhhhh, I should've known, 
Em      Cadd9          G         D
Ohhhhhhhohhhhhh, we'll have to go, 

Em                Cadd9 
Back to the that we were
              G
Before we were us, 
            D 
Before I was me, 
               Em          Cadd9
Before we were, happier than I've ever been, 
G                    D
Than you'll ever see, 
                                 Em G 
'Cause that's the way it has to be, 
                  Em D 
The way it has to be.


Cadd9                    G
We felt the summer on our skin, 
Cadd9                         Em             D 
We curled up in the warmth and let each other in.
             Cadd9                    G 
And I asked, "Have you felt this way before..."
Cadd9                          Em         D 
You turned to me said "No I'll be forever yours..."

And we'll be... 


  Em           G         Em              D 
Complicated complicated complicated they said we would be, 
  Em           G         Em              D 
Complicated complicated complicated they said.
Em      Cadd9      G             D
Ohhhhhhhohhhhhh, I should've known, 
Em      Cadd9          G         D
Ohhhhhhhohhhhhh, we'll have to go, 

Em                Cadd9 
Back to the that we were
              G
Before we were us, 
            D 
Before I was me, 
               Em          Cadd9
Before we were, happier than I've ever been, 
G                    D
Than you'll ever see, 

'Cause that's the way it has to... 


Em                             Cadd9
I would push and you would pull away from me my heart would bleed
    Em                              G                 
And I'd say things I didn't mean to try and get you back to me.
       Em 
We've bent the rules, played the games
   Cadd9
And never said we felt the same.
  Em                     
We ended things like we began.
    D (once) 
And feared what we became... 

            Em                  Cadd9
So we'll go back, to the that we were, 
               G
Before we were us, 
             D 
Before I was me, 
                  Em        Cadd9
Before we were, happier than I've ever been, 
      Em               D
Than you'll ever see, 

'Cause that's the way it has to... 

  Em                   Cadd9  
Back to the way that we were, 
               G
Before we were us, 
             D 
Before I was me, 
                 Em        Cadd9
Before we were happier than I've ever been, 
      Em              D 
Than you'll ever see, 
                                 Em    G   Cadd9 
'Cause that's the way it has to be.
D                        Em    D 
That's the way it has to be.
                  G           D(once)
The way it has to be.
