h = hammer on
p = pull off

Capo 7th Fret (Drop it down to 5th fret if you have a deeper voice)

This version is a blend of the acoustic album version and some of his live performances.

Intro:

The bottom 2 strings being played at any time hold the downbeat. It's a lot easier
to play if you think of it this way. I added a time signature to the top of the first bit 
of the intro to help visualize it.

Lyrics: Chorus: Because you only need the light when it's burning low Only miss the sun when it starts to snow Only know your lover when you let her go Only know you've been high when you're feeling low Only hate the road when you're missin home Only know your lover when you let her go Bridge #1 Verse 1: Staring at the bottom of your glass Hoping one day you'll make a dream last But dreams come slow and they go so fast You see her when you close your eves Maybe one day you'll understand why Everything you touch, all it dies Chorus Verse 2: Staring at the ceiling in the dark Same old empty feeling in your heart Love comes slow and it goes so fast Well you see her when you fall asleep But never to touch and never to keep Because you loved her too much And you dive too deep Chorus Bridge #2: And you let her go Oooh Oooohhhhhh Oohhh no And you let her go Oooh Oooohhhhhh Oohhh no Chorus Chorus And you let her go…
