Skillet - The Older I Get Acoustic chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
My first tab I posted I couldn't edit because Ultimate-Guitar didn't give
me credit.  My first try was ver2.  Here is my edit, it's a vast
improvement and sounds nearly perfect.  I think there might be another
chord change in the chorus between the Dm and F but I didn't take the time
to figure it out.

NOTE: Fmaj/C is an F major chord that mutes the low and high E strings
while Fmaj does the same but plays the B string open like this

Also, this tab is for the acoustic version they did on there Comatose Comes
Alive album.  They play in a different key when they play it acoustic live.

I don't know that this is proper notation but just so you know what I
mean in this tab.

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

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

***Pre-Chorus***
For this section use power chords.

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 
F                     G 
I didn't know then it would hurt like this but I think 

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

***Verse2***(same chord as Verse1)
Am         C
           The time between 
Fmaj/C     Fmaj
           Those cutting words 
Am         C                           Fmaj/C           Fmaj
	   Built up our defenses never made no sense it just made me hurt 

Am         C
           Do you believe 
Fmaj/C     Fmaj
           That time heals all wounds 
Am         C                                  Fmaj/C            Fmaj
           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)
