This is my first tab but I'm fairly sure that this is correct.
Its a fairly easy intermediate song but I feel it belongs above novice.
I've put the chords above the lyrics and the leads below them.
Listen to the song for exact strumming patterns. Please rate, thanks!

There are only 4 chords used in this song and they are:
A5, C, F, G.

Tuning: E Standard.

Intro & Verse 1: A5 - F (0:00 - 1:21)

Something says that today's the day
The one I hoped would never be
Consumed like candles we have burned away
We can't shine anymore
The burdens of the bond to be broken
Hang over us like a cloud
But still we try to stop the rain from pouring

Verse 2: A5 - F (1:48 - 2:22)

Much more damage in the end
