Passenger - Let Her Go tab

Artist: Passenger
Song: Let Her Go
Album: All the Little Lights

Tabbed By: Colin McGrath
Email: cpmcgrat@uci.edu

h = hammer on
p = pull off

Capo 7th Fret (Drop it down to 5th fret if you have a deeper voice)

This version is a blend of the acoustic album version and some of his live performances.

Intro:

The bottom 2 strings being played at any time hold the downbeat. It's a lot easier
to play if you think of it this way. I added a time signature to the top of the first bit 
of the intro to help visualize it.

Lyrics:
Chorus:
Because you only need the light when it's burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know your lover when you let her go
Only know you've been high when you're feeling low
Only hate the road when you're missin home
Only know your lover when you let her go

Bridge #1

Verse 1:
Staring at the bottom of your glass
Hoping one day you'll make a dream last
But dreams come slow and they go so fast
You see her when you close your eves
Maybe one day you'll understand why
Everything you touch, all it dies

Chorus

Verse 2:
Staring at the ceiling in the dark
Same old empty feeling in your heart
Love comes slow and it goes so fast
Well you see her when you fall asleep
But never to touch and never to keep
Because you loved her too much
And you dive too deep

Chorus

Bridge #2:
And you let her go
Oooh Oooohhhhhh Oohhh no
And you let her go
Oooh Oooohhhhhh Oohhh no

Chorus

Chorus

And you let her go…
