                             Beating Heart - Ellie Goulding 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: JI09
Tuning: Standard (Capo 5th Fret)
I based this off the acoustic version of the song that is on Youtube. It sounds right to me but any 
corrections are welcome :) Hope you enjoy it, it's definitely a great song!!

During the verses it is all picked however in the chorus it is all strumming, again listen to 
the song to get the strumming pattern. Another thing to note is that where Ellie starts singing 
'Here's hoping we collide' in the bridge you should palm mute the strings when playing. The picking 
is something like what is below, obviously the root note for the F will be the low E string but for 
the C it will be the A string so bare that in mind, but play around with it and see what sounds good 
for you :)

Intro: Am7, C, F x2

Verse
Am             C              F    
Eyes make their peace in difficulties
F
With wounded lips and salted cheeks
Am         C           F
And finally we step to leave
F                                   G
To the departure lounge of disbelief

Pre-Chorus
    Am7
And I don't know where I'm going
F                                   G
But I know it's gonna be a long time
              Am7
And I'll be leaving in the morning
F
Come the white wine bitter sunlight

Chorus
              Am         C        F
Wanna hear your beating heart tonight
              Am         C        F
Before the bleeding sun comes alive
        G                Am7                 F 
I want to make the best of what is left, hold tight
             Am          C        F
And hear my beating heart one last time
Before daylight

Verse
In the canyon underneath the trees
Behind the dark sky, you looked at me
I fell for you like autumn leaves 
Never faded, evergreen

Pre-Chorus
And I don't know where I'm going
But I know it's gonna be a long time
'Cause I'll be leaving in the morning
Come the white wine bitter sunlight

Chorus
Wanna hear your beating heart tonight
Before the bleeding sun comes alive
I want to make the best of what is left, hold tight
And hear my beating heart one last time

Bridge
C     C/B      Am7
I can't face this now everything has changed
C       Am7     F
I just wanna be by your side, here's hoping we collide
               Am   C   F
Here's hoping we collide
               Am   C   F
Here's hoping we collide

Chorus
Wanna hear your beating heart tonight
Before the bleeding sun comes alive
I want to make the best of what is left, hold tight
And hear my beating heart one last time
Wanna hear your beating heart tonight
