Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
I'm no expert, I'm actually kind of a newby to playing guitar but the other tabs 
for this song are kinda bad so I figured I would try my hand at it.

Let me know if I miss something.

I always mute the E string for the G chords except for the last chord in the 
chorus.  I also don't have the ending finished but I figure this should give you a good start.

***Verse1***
C
The walls between
G 
You and I 
Dm                               Am                  G
Always pushing us apart nothing left but scars fight after fight 

C
The space between 
G
Our calm and rage 
Dm                               Am               G
started growing shorter , disappearing slowly day after day 

***Pre-Chorus***

D                           E              F
I was sitting there waiting in my room for you 
                        D
You were waiting for me too 

And it makes me wonder 

***Chorus***
C
The older I get
G
Will I get over it 
Dm              
It's been way too long for the times we missed 
Am                    G                        C
I didn't know then it would hurt like this but I think 

C
The older I get 
G
Maybe I'll get over it 
Dm
It's been way too long for the times we missed 
Am                       G
I can't believe it still hurts like this 

***Verse2***(same chord as Verse1)
C
The time between 
G
Those cutting words 
Dm                               Am                  G
Built up our defenses never made no sense it just made me hurt 
C
Do you believe 
G
That time heals all wounds 
Dm                               Am                  G
It started getting better but it's easy not to fight when I'm not with you 

Pre-Chorus+Chorus(1x)

***Bridge***
Am                   
What was I waiting for
C                                G
I should've taken less and given you more

I should've weathered the storm 
                 Am
I need to say so bad 
                        C
What were you waiting for 
                         G            C
This could have been the best we ever had 

Chorus(1x)

Good luck and let me know what I screwed up!
