Tonight Alive - Amelia chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Hey - so the other versions are not quite perfect - so I really wanted to put a version 
that is as close to the real thing as possible

I've worked this out from watching an live acoustic video of the band: 
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4_823c_u-3w

Hopefully the spacing works out right!

NOTE: Drop C#/Db Tuning - so this is drop D and then all strings down an additional 1/2 step

Verse 1: Silence
G/B
     I think about you
             C
every single day
And every time
           Em
I see your face
I wake and it
             C*
brings me to tears
We hadn't spoken in years
G/B
     We were close when we
                 C
were young and naive
We grew up and we
              Em
learned other things
                        C*
You'll always be sweet 16


Chorus 1:
             Em7
And you will always be perfect
You'll always be beautiful
C
Our hearts will never forget you
    Em7
You didn't belong here
And it's become so clear
    D
Why heaven called your name



Verse 2: Distorted Power chords +clean riff)
G/B
     I miss you and it still
             C
feels like I know you
I've got pictures of us
                Em
side by side to show you
But it feels like I owe
    C*
you so much more


Chorus 2: Distorted
             Em
And you will always be perfect
You'll always be beautiful
Cadd9
Our hearts will never forget you
    Em7
You didn't belong here
And it's become so clear
    D
Why heaven called your name
            Em7
And it just doesn't seem right

was it really your time?
       Cadd9
Are we dreaming?
We'll never let go of you
Em7
Wish you were here but
it's becoming clear
     D
That Earth's just not the
                        Em D
place for an angel like you
                  C  D
For an angel like you


Bridge:
G
You meant so much to so many
                   G/F#
I'm not quite sure how

to do justice to you
                    G
If they're ready to say
                    G/F#          Dsus4(V)
goodbye I know i'm not
G
You made the news and the
                    G/F#
papers for days and days
But it hardly seems fair
The whole world should
G
know your name
               G/F#                      Dsus4(V)
I want them to know your name


Interlude: Em--D--C--D--


Chorus 3:

Clean:
                     Em7
And you will always be perfect

You'll always be beautiful

Distortion:
Cadd9
Our hearts will never forget you
    Em7
You didn't belong here
And it's become so clear
    D
Why heaven called your name
            Em
And it just doesn't seem

right was it

really your time?
       C
Are we dreaming?
We'll never let go of you
Em7
Wish you were here but
it's becoming clear
     D
That Earth's just not the

place for an angel like you
                  G/B (intro riff)
For an angel like you


Outro:
    C
And now we must let
you move forward

Our love lies with you
          C*                  G(5)(hold)
Our souls fly with you Amelia
