Christina Perri - Sad Song tab

Hi. This is an ear-transcribed fingerpicking of Sad Song - Christina Perri.

Capo: 4th fret
Pay attention in the dynamic of the notes (piano and mezzo forte).
The higher notes and 1st bass are often mf.
This "balance" marks the rhythm. (This serves to the strumming too.)

(Chorus)
        G               Em
I'm so sorry, it's not like me
       Am           D
It's maturity that I'm lacking
      G               Em
So don't, don't let me go
               Am            D
Just to let me know that growing up goes slow

(Verse)

(Chorus)
        G               Em
I'm so sorry, it's not like me
       Am           D
It's maturity that I'm lacking
      G               Em
So don't, don't let me go
               Am          D
Just to let me know that growing up goes slow

(Bridge)
   E                      Am
All the rules are meant to bend
                           D 
And you swore you were my friend
                        G      Em
Now I have to start all over again
  E                              Am
Cause no one's going to take your place
                            D
And I'm scared we'll never save all the pieces
    G       Am    D
of love we made


(Chorus)
        G               Em
I'm so sorry, it's not like me
       Am           D
It's maturity that I'm lacking
      G               Em
So don't, don't let me go
               Am            D
Just to let me know that I can slip and fall 
      G            Em
And you wont let me go
            Am          D          
Just let me know that growing up goes slow.

G               Em
I'm so sorry, it's not like me
       Am           D
It's maturity that I'm lacking
      G               Em
So don't, don't let me go
               Am          D
Just to let me know that growing up goes slow
