Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Hey there! This is my first tab, so there might be a few errors. Plus I had to figure 
this out based on mobile phone recordings of the live (and only) version, so it wasn't easy!

This is the song that Chord Overstreet wrote and performed live at The Roxy on July 13th 
2013. His original song, he dedicated to Cory Monteith. I love them both, and wanted to 
help people learn this amazing, albeit sad song.
RIP, Cory.

Don't know if this section makes sense, but just play around with it, tweaking a C chord 
with your pinky on the 3rd fret, second string. Good luck!

CAPO ON 2nd

(INTRO)
C - C - C - C


(VERSE 1)

 C
Running out, out of space
Searching for a new hiding place
Where I can escape
Someone to run to
And leave behind memories
And pictures framed of you


(PRE-CHORUS I)
        Am                      F
Now it may be hard to sleep at night

            C                              G
But I just close my eyes and wait for the light


(CHORUS I)
         C
Thereís a war going on

        G
Hits me deep in my bones

       Am
I can still struggle now

         F
From just being alone

         C
Well itís another heartache

         G
If youíve been through it breaking

        Am          G        F
Thereís never a love like before

           Am
And you can cry if you want

         F             G         C - C - C - C
But itís not going to stop this war


(VERSE 2)
 C
What would you say
If i take you back
What would you say
If i forgave you for that
In a moment of weakness
I could see you play it out
But you didnít lose a love again
Iíll tell you that now

(PRE-CHORUS II)
                    Am                      F
Itís better than the silence of being alone

                    C                                G
The risk in the nights you spend sleeping by the phone


(CHORUS II)
          C
Thereís a war going on

          G
Hits me deep in my bones

       Am
I can still struggle now

          F
From just being alone

            C
Well itís another heartache

             G
If youíve been through it breaking

        Am        G         F
Thereís never a love like before

             Am      G        F
No thereís never a love like before

       Am
You can cry if you want

         F              G        F - F - C-G
But itís not going to stop this war

F - F - C-G


(BRIDGE)
 Am                   G              F
Gotta try to keep on living for each day

  Am                  G                    F
A moment can come, a moment can go and itís too late

 Am              G            F             C
Take this time to live here before it goes away

  Am                 G               F
Make sure you leave never wanting more

           Am
And you can cry if you want

        F             G        C
But itís not going to stop this war
