Tuning: Half step down (although not 100% necessary, the AbMaj7 chords play 
better if it is)

Now, when this is played with a piano, like in the acoustic version, its 
completely different. 
The AbMaj7 is held out mostly with a little variation.
But the below assumes youre just playing the actual rhythym on guitar.

I have listed some timing. When using it, there are no pauses, 
just count even and steady with no pauses 
1, 2, 3, 4, 1, 2, 3, 1, 1, 2, 3, 4... etc. 


Chords Used: AbMaj7 AbMaj7(II) AbMaj7(no 3rd) Cm7 Cm D# Bb BEb--4-------------4------------4------------4----4--4---2---3---|Bb--5-------------5------------5------------5----5--5---4---5---|Gb--6-------------6------------4------------4----6--4---4---5---|Db--7-------------6------------7------------6----6--6---4---5---|Ab--0-------------0------------0------------4----4--7---2---3---|Eb--------------------------------------------------------------|
Timing is listed here also, strum once on the numbers in parentheses, and count Intro: (1), 2, 3, 4 (1), 2 (3), 4 (1), 2, 3, 4, 1, 2, 3, 4 AbMaj7, Cm7, D#, AbMaj7(II) (1), 2, 3, 4 (1), 2 (3), 4 (1), 2, 3, 4, 1, 2, 3, 4 AbMaj7, Cm7, D#, AbMaj7(II) (1), 2, 3, 4 (1), 2 (3), 4 (1), 2, 3, 4, 1, 2, 3, 4 AbMaj7, Cm7, D#, AbMaj7(II) (1), 2, 3, 4 (1), 2 (3), 4 (1), 2, 3, 4 (1), 2, 3, 4 AbMaj7, Cm7, D#, AbMaj7(II) Bb (1), 2, 3, 4 (1), 2, 3, 4, 1, 2, 3, 4 (1), 2, 3, 4 (1), 2, 3 (4) (1)..... Bb B Cm Cm7 Cm AbMaj7.. The intro leads straight into the below which is double the speed of intro. You can choose to drop the AbMaj7(no 3rd) if you want and just continue the AbMaj7 chord as a 4th beat. I dont have the strumming pattern listed, just the timing. Play this twice: ________________________________________ |1,2,3,4,1,2,3, 4 |1,2,3,4 1,2,3,4|
|AbMaj7 AbMaj7 |Cm7 D# ||_______________(no_3rd)|________________|
________________________________________________ |1,2,3,4,1,2,3, 4 |1,2,3,4, 1,2,3, 4 |
|AbMaj7(II) AbMaj7 |AbMaj7(II) AbMaj7 | |_______________(no 3rd)|_______________(no 3rd)_|
Now the Verses/chorus is played mostly the same as above, but for sake of ease i will leave out the AbMaj7(no 3rd) below
AbMaj7 Cm7You may tire of me,
D# AbMaj7(II)As our December sun is setting,
Because I'm not who I used to be...
AbMaj7 Cm7No longer easy on the eyes
D# AbMaj7(II)But these wrinkles masterfully disguise,
BbThe youthful boy below...
AbMaj7 Cm7 Who turned your way and saw
D# AbMaj7(II)Something he was not looking for:
Both a beginning and an end...
AbMaj7 Cm7 But now he lives inside
D# AbMaj7(II)Someone he does not recognize,
Bb AbMaj7(II)When he catches his reflection on accident
AbMaj7, Cm7, D#, AbMaj7(II) Verse 2
AbMaj7 Cm7 On the back of a motor bike
D# AbMaj7(II)With your arms outstretched trying to take flight
Leaving everything behind
AbMaj7 Cm7 But even at our swiftest speed
D# AbMaj7(II)We couldn't break from the concrete
BbIn the city where we still reside...
AbMaj7 Cm7 And I have learned
D# AbMaj7(II)That even landlocked lovers yearn
For the sea like navy men...
AbMaj7 Cm7 Cause now we say goodnight
D# AbMaj7(II)From our own separate sides,
Bb D#Like brothers on a hotel bed...
AbMaj7(II) D# Like brothers on a hotel bed....
AbMaj7(II) D# Like brothers on a hotel bed...
AbMaj7(II) D# Bb Like brothers on a hotel bed...
AbMaj7, Cm7, D#, AbMaj7(II) AbMaj7, Cm7, D#, AbMaj7(II) End
AbMaj7 Cm7 You may tire of me,
D# AbMaj7(II)As our December sun is setting,
Cause I'm not who I used to be
